Hi Robert,

People have different benefits of running a remote server, some because they're managing a sizable internal network. However, a couple of years ago, nvdaremote.com was quite often offline, and the remote access was a necessity for the work I was doing at the time, so I couldn't aford to not have access for long periods of time.

Hi,

There is a precompiled server for windows here:

https://github.com/jmdaweb/NVDARemoteServer/releases/download/release-1.6/NVDARemoteServer-win-1.6-x64.zip


Extract this to any location of your choosing. Inside the folder, right
click service manager.cmd and run it as administrator. Here is where you can
select to install the service, run it at startup, among other self
explanatory features.


Another good idea is to run the NVDA remote certificate.cmd file, again as
administrator, to create your own SSL certificate for your remote server.

Re: NVDA Systematic Crash

Vlad Dragomir
 

Wow I’m truly grateful then.

 

One more thing I’ve noticed. If I uncheck the box “Automatically start NVDA after I log on to Windows” in Settings, and manually start NVDA a few seconds after restart, everything’s perfect. Which makes me want to ask this: is there any way to tell NVDA to start, let’s say, 10 seconds after startup? Would that help?

 

Cheers back,

 

Vlad.

Hello all


A new SpeakOn MediaSuite NVDA add-on is available for NVDA versions
2019.3.1 and later. This add-on does nothing by itself, you need to download and install SpeakOn Media suite for it to work.

More information to enable you to decide if it might be for you is provided towards the end of this message.


About a month ago there was an extensive discussion on this mailing list
about SpeakOn Media suite as part of podcast and books readers related
threads.

In addition to these, SpeakOn can handle Music, Radio and RNIB
Newspapers and Magazines in the UK.


The SpeakOn MediaSuite home page where you can find more information
including links to the download page and mailing list is at:

http://www.speakon.org.uk/SpeakOn.html


The NVDA add-on is a convenience or a necessity depends how you interact
with SpeakOn; you can use a Standard keyboard, a numerical keypad or a
touch screen.

http://www.speakon.org.uk/SpeakOn/MediaSuite/public/docs/Tutorial/The_basics/Operating_SpeakOn_alongside_your_screen_reader/Configuring_NVDA.html


Please note the following based on recent questions:


* SpeakOn is self voicing.


* SpeakOn supports English only.


* SpeakOn itself has not been updated for a while but with a minor
exception everything works and there are no known bugs.


* Audio books:

It supports Daisy 2 as used in the UK and (I think) most of Europe, it
does not support Daisy 3 as used in the US.

Books made of individual audio files as well as playlists are also
supported


* Written books:

epub is supported as well as plain text.

The relay server is the host that you log into when setting up a remote connection.  It would be your own version of nvdaremote.com.

Re: Remote Relay server

Hi Robert,

People have different benefits of running a remote server, some because they're managing a sizable internal network. However, a couple of years ago, nvdaremote.com was quite often offline, and the remote access was a necessity for the work I was doing at the time, so I couldn't aford to not have access for long periods of time.

Yes, makes more sense. As for why it crashes, try disabling all add-ons and see what happens next time you log onto your computer.

Re: NVDA Systematic Crash

 

Hi,

Before doing that, try running NVDA with add-ons disabled (open Run dialog, type “nvda –disable-addons” without quotes and press Enter provided that NVDA is installed). If NVDA starts, chances are that it might be an add-on or two.

Thanks Joseph for the reply. Answers:

  1. It’s 2020.1.
  2. Oh yes I have about 55 add-ons installed. Should I try to disable them one by one and see if this changes anything? Sorry if it’s a silly idea!

Re: Grammar checker

Sarah,

That site does seem to work, however to check the errors, it takes you to Grammarly and want to set that up - last time I tried that Grammarly itself was completely inaccessible, has it changed?

Note that it does have a Word plug-in, however last I checked, it, like others such as Grammarly, weren't accessible.

If anyone finds anything else, I'd be interested to know.

Re: Toggle Passing Keys in NVDA?

Quentin Christensen
 

Brian and Sarah,

You are both correct, my mistake, we'll just put that down to my inability to read :)

Ok in that case, as you pointed out, NVDA doesn't have a command for that currently, but if someone would like to create an issue to articulate the use case, it is certainly something which could be considered.

Quentin.

NVDA has a "sleep mode".  Press NVDA+shift+s (or if using laptop keyboard layout press NVDA+shift+z) and NVDA will be silent and will ignore keystrokes while you are in the current program (or until you press the sleep command again).

Kind regards

Hi there! I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to tell NVDA to stop processing commands for a time, similar to the "pass next key through" command. When using an application/ widget that has heavy keyboard accessibility, NVDA's commands really hinder the use of the application, and having to press NVDA+F2 between each and every keystroke would make - say - a game using its own keyboard commands practically unplayable. I thought perhaps the "application sleep mode" was what I needed, but not only does the command listed on the reference do absolutely nothing for me, it apparently stops the speech synthesis as well, which I don't want.

What I'm looking for is a key stroke that tells NVDA to start ignoring/passing keys until that same keystroke is entered again, or something to that effect.

Searching for this has yielded nothing helpful because any way I phrase the question, I simply get linked back to the user guide or commands quick reference, which so far as I've seen, doesn't have any solution. Is there perhaps an addon that would allow this, or have I missed something in NVDA's main feature set?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Re: NVDA Systematic Crash

 

Hi,

The dmp file is a crash dump, which requires a debugger to parse what it is saying (as such, you cannot paste the contents of this file, otherwise it may become unreadable once a person with a debugger opens it as things can change while transmitting over the internet).

A few questions:

  • Which NVDA version is this?
  • Do you have any add-ons installed?

Cheers,

Joseph

Greetings,

 

I’ve recently switched laptops, and on this new one, NVDA crashes systematically at each restart, right at the beginning, after I type the pin on the lockscreen. Would any of our beloved experts be kind enough to assist me in, at least diagnosing, if not solving this?

 

A few more details: there are no errors in either nvda.Log or nvda-old.Log. On the other hand, there is a file in Temp named “nvda_crash.Dmp”, whose contents seems unreadable to humans, or at least non-specialists like me. Would it help if I pasted the contents of that file in an email here for someone able to decode it? Thank you very much in advance, grateful regards.

 

Vlad.
