Ibrahim,

         This question would be appropriate for the Chat Subgroup, but definitely not here, and I wouldn't recommend the Chat Subgroup, either.

          Both the Android Accessibility and PhonesForTheBlind groups on Groups.io would be far better places to ask this question.

          As this is entirely off-topic here, and there are venues where it's dead on-topic and would get the attention it needs, this topic is now locked.

Hi good people:
This is not an NVDA issue, but I connect my phone to my PC using the
NVDA screen reader.
Please does anyone use an Android phone made in China, which comes in
the Chinese language.
I actually have an Android phone, made in China. The original language
is Chinese. I had to get sighted assistance to change the system
language from Chinese to English.
Unfortunately, I didn't know it is a Chinese phone when it was ordered
for. I purchased it online.
I'm having problems with the phone, and I now want to do a factory reset.
Is it possible for one to do the reset independently on one's own. How
can I change the system language when there is no speech.
and one cannot see the screen.
Looking forward to reading a response.
Ibrahim.


When Nvda keys appear to freeze, also window keys appear to freeze.

Using Nvda version 20. On windows 10 1909. I noticed that the keys will freeze. That is, control left in control right, and things like that. I know that someone reported this before. We starting Nvda works to fix this. I’ve also done the Com registration tool as well. I’ve seen us in Thunderbird, discord, jarred, just about everywhere. Here’s a log.

Close it with the task manager or in the system tray, if you aren't doing so when that happens.

On the off chance this might be somehow pertinent, in your message to the group all of the text except for your signature is right justified, which is really odd.  I don't know if the setting that's causing this might be somehow related to the issue that you are having.

Hi diana,

 

  1. Yes its behave like this connected to usb and Bluetooth.
  2.  The symbols are written just fine in other languages.
  3. Hybrid mode is on.
  4. There is not an option for Hebrew code on Hebrew, just computer braille.
  5. Its not a recent problem, its work like this always.

About the panning buttons and the cursor routing keys, I have this problem as well.

Strange.

Ok, your issue poses many question:

 

1. Does the QBraille behave this way connected with both USB and Bluetooth?

2. Does punctuation work in other languages?

3. Do you have Hybrid Mode on?

4. Are you working in the Hebrew braille code or computer braille? 

5.  If Hebrew, have you tried computer braille?

6. Has it always worked this way or only a recent problem?

7. If you are connected through Bluetooth, have you paired both the display and the screen reader separately? If you are using USB, that I know this isn't necessary.  

 

I am having issues with my QBraille too, and JAWS, but it works fine in USB, not in Bluetooth. In Bluetooth, the cursor routing buttons and panning buttons are inoperative. I've been told it's the version of Windows I'm using, but I don't believe this because these issues started long before the current windows version, and apparently, though I haven't tested it yet, it works fine with NVDA. 

 

This is sad, because I love the QBraille but was hoping to be able to connect with Bluetooth.

Hi list,

 

I have QBraille XL from Hims, and so far its cool device!

 

But I have problems with NVDA and other screen readers.

 

When I'm trying to type on the perkins keyboard in Hebrew, its does write the letters and numbers, but its doesn't write the symbols like comma, full stop, question mark and so on.

In the display's notepad for example its working just fine, all the symbols are written correctly.

 

So its not related to the display itself, its related to the screen reader.

 

Any help is appreciated.

Topics on Games - Please take them to the Chat Subgroup #adminnotice

 

Hello All,

             I am requesting that topics related to games be taken to the Chat Subgroup.  The Group Rules state: Before choosing where to post, please ask yourself the question, “Is what I’m about to ask directly related to controlling or using NVDA, or whether a specific program is accessible with NVDA?”  If that can be answered, “Yes,” then post to the NVDA Group, and if the answer is, “No,” then the topic belongs in the NVDA Chat Subgroup.

              That's where topics on games belong, unless you are asking a very specific question on how to access something during play with NVDA or whether a given game is accessible at all with NVDA.  Even then, I'd consider asking this on the Chat Subgroup first, as these discussions tend to focus on the game in question with NVDA as a tangent, at best.
