Re: nvda error tone

Quentin Christensen
 

The Alpha and Beta versions of NVDA play an error sound whenever an error is written to the log.  In many cases, when NVDA hits an error, it is able to fall back and try something else which works - so the end result for the user is that whatever they expected happens as it should.  The error sound is largely there for developers to investigate their fixes and code to ensure it is not producing errors.  We turn the sound off in the RC and Stable builds.

There has been discussion previously about how best to implement this sound - whether to have a toggle to enable or disable it for instance, but no change has been made.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: Possible to Push Files on a PC using Remote Access?

Chris Mullins
 

Hi

It would require some work by the remote add-on developers.  This technology pushes the clipboard contents to the remote computer’s clipboard then allows you to switch to the remote computer and paste in the clipboard contents wherever you want.  When you use the clipboard to move files around it copies the file address to the clipboard then allows you to copy/move it locally.  When you use the paste command on the remote computer, you are addressing that computer.  Windows has no way of knowing you are referencing a file on a  remotely linked computer, so file addresses copied from your local machine would b meaningless.

 

Cheers

Chris

Yes, I did review that little snippet Chris. Just was hoping someone here has figured out a way to do this remotely using some sort of workaround. I feel the Push Clipboard option should allow this in my opinion.

 

I've temporarily setup a folder on OneDrive that is shared with the Client PC. Just was hoping there was something that allowed the copying of files from one Server to the Client when using a remote Direct PC-to-PC connection.

Hello,

 

 

Been tinkering a bit with the NVDA Remote Access Add-on, and really love it.

 

 

Especially love the ability to set the add-on to auto connect to a

client's PC immediately after NVDA has launched. Very very useful for

controlling my home PC when on vacation.

 

 

Do have a question regarding the Push Clipboard feature?

 

 

I'm able to successfully push text copied to my controller PC's

clipboard to the PC being controlled, but not files?

 

 

I figured when you use the [Control]+[c] keyboard shortcut to copy files

to the clipboard, I could place them on the client's PC using the same

Push Clipboard option?

 

 

Doesn't work.

 

 

Maybe I'm missing a step or something here, so I'm coming to the list

for guidance.

 

 

If the NVDA Remote Access add-on isn't able to perform such actions, is

there another remote app I can use that does allow this type of file

copying flexibility? Copying files from the server PC to the client's PC.

 

 

I'm using:

 

NVDA Version: 2020.2beta1

The way I get files to where I want them is to put them in my favorite
Internet based file storage and push the link to the client machine. I
do it with Dropbox by choosing copy link and changing the dl=0 to dl=1
when I get the http link and the file downloads on the client machine in
the user's default browser.

Re: Question about NVDA Remote and Copying/pasting Text

Kenny <kwashingtonbox@...>
 

Yes, you can setup such a scenario to share files with any online cloud service.


Just would be simpler for me to press [f11] to switch to my local PC and copy the file I need. Then press [F11] to switch back to the client's PC and paste it in a folder, install the utility, and get to work.


I mean the Push Clipboard option is already there for text. Would it be difficult to enhance it's ability to allow the pushing of files copied to the clipboard too?

Just hoping there is someone here who has come up with a more efficient solution.

For most of my remotes I don't actively upload live in a session.

Firstly its not needed and secondly why bother.

If its only files, I will download the files in question, and use dropbox or similar.

I have a shared folder linked with that email on the user's system dropbox is on or whatever.

I download the files and put it there.

If the user has something I put it in a file and put it there or they do it.

For files and some information, its easier to do this rather than actively emailing and accessing things.

If I must run a script I make it on my system, upload it, remote in or whatever run the script.

Once I am done, I go back to my system, and clear the folder, the remote will clear itself you do need to empty the junk out of things.

If its something you need yourself, go to something like www.cutt.us and make a free account.

Make a shortened link and write it down.

 then open it on the remote that way.

I am not sure about cross transfering content because I never do it.

Its faster to cloud dump it and its there when I want it.

Now if it aint simple like a hardware issue or virus or corrupted system or something where I have to physically access the system, everything from a clean install to listen for faulty things or generally accessing it without the network factors I physically access the system.

I have never done anything in reguards of anything bar administration.

Re: Question about NVDA Remote and Copying/pasting Text

Hey Steve,


Good question, here's some info that comes from the NVDA remote add-on documentation.  Hope it helps.


Push clipboard
The Push clipboard option in the remote menu allows you to push text from your clipboard. when activated, any text on the clipboard will be pushed to the other machines.

You might be able to set the cursor to follow the braille display as you read, which would send cursor movement events to the application and therefore keep the system from suspending.

Subject: Re: [nvda] Problem with NVDA and single key navigation in Chrome

hello.
sometimes nvda's keys dont work for me.
for example: if i press nvda plus n, i cant go to the nvda's menu.
i press nvda plus q, but dont confirm any of the options for restarting or exiting nvda.
in this situation, nvda's restart and exit options are in the background.
i press alt tab to access them and press scape to cancel them.
then, nvda's menus work for me and i can access them without any issue.
sometimes, nvda single letter navigation keys dont work for me in browsers, and pressing alt tab to go to another program and alt tab again to return to browser, work for me.

Hello NVDA community,



This is my first post here, and sadly it's about a problem with NVDA I
encountered today that I'd like to get some opinions about.



I've been an NVDA user for a couple of years mostly on an Apple
MacBook Pro running Windows 10 on Bootcamp or on a Del XPS 13 and I
have never experienced what I will describe below. Today I've got a
brand new work computer - a Lenovo X1 Carbon with Windows 10, Lenovo
drivers, Chrome, Slack, Webroot SecureAnywhere and Umbrella Roaming
Client by Cisco already preinstalled.

I initially installed an older version of NVDA that I had lying around
on a flash drive, which I immediately updated to the newest official
version thereafter.

When opened Chrome, I noticed that it reads through the pages in
browse mode, it can switch between Browse and Focus modes and it
recognizes links, forms and other controls, but none of the single
navigation keystrokes like H, E, N, NVDA+Space and other similar keys
or key combinations work. Even the NVDA+1 key doesn't want to turn
help navigation on, same for the NVDA+N keystrokes combination.

Once I exit Chrome everything goes back to Normal and NVDA starts
responding as it should.



I tried the same with Microsoft Edge and it works - NVDA can
successfully intercept and process single navigation keys and key
combinations without issues jumping through headings, focusing edit controls, etc.



What I tried so far:

* Reinstalling NVDA a few times (both Version 2020.1, 2020.2 Beta 1
and snapshot builds),
* Deleting the %appdata%\nvda directory after each uninstallation,
* Reinstalling Chrome Version 83.0.4103.106 (Official Build) (64-bit),
* Running the Windows 10 file check scanner through Powershell as
described here:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/929833/use-the-system-file-ch
ecker- tool-to-repair-missing-or-corrupted-system
* Installing the latest update for Windows 10 Version 2004 (OS Build
19041.329) and all available security and driver updates through
Windows update.
* Running the Com Registration Fixing Tool a few times.



After one of the first NVDA or Chrome reinstallations, I managed to
get it working somehow, but after I kept customising my NVDA the way I
like it, after one of the subsequent reboots, the problem reappeared
and no reinstallations of Chrome or NVDA managed to fix it ever since.

There is nothing in the log viewer, neither in normal, nor in
debugging mode and I am out of ideas.



If you have any suggestions of things for me to try, please let me know.



Best Regards,

Georgi.
