Hi, no I must admit I have not. but did ask on this list some years ago and one of the devs said this is not needed. I think they said use team viewer this does this. I do not know if it does or not? I just know nvda remote does not do this and I and others wished it could.

Re: sends the contents of the clipboard to the remote machine

Hi Look, agreed. and I do not know why this has not been added yet to this addon. maybe one day it might be done but I remember asking on list some time ago about this and was told more or Les this is not going to happen. it's a shame as it is a nice addon but if I want to install a program on the remote machine I can not go from local machine copy a file switch over to the remote machine and paste the file over. now I am sure that remote desk top can do it and it is good as well but only in windows10 pro. I said windows10 because this is what most of us use now a days. Sara I did not reply because I have had other stuff going on but when I did read Your post I just thoughtstrange comment. but each to there own not having a go at You so please do not take it the wrong way.

Why, Sarah? Every other remote desktop platform out there can move files from one machine to the other. I know people who run their whole business that way: moving files to and from remote computers at remote locations without human employees via the Splashtop remote desktop tool, which they also use to control what happens to those files.
NVDA Remote really needs this capability.
If you let someone you don't trust into your computer, then you bear the outcome.
That aside, if someone is doing a remote session and really badly wants a file from you, there are several ways they can acquire it--SCP from your machine to another, a web uploader, an email attachment, good old FTP, and more.
It's all just much less convenient than having the remote desktop software do it.

using the Brightspace learning system with a screen reader

Janet Brandly
 

Hello all,

 

Has anyone out there used the Brightspace learning management system from D2L with a screen reader, specifically NVDA? They claim to follow international web accessibility standards and have some related documentation, but I’m wondering whether NVDA has any specific addons or whether anyone might have any tips or suggestions for using this software.

 

Thanks,

Re: How to hide rows with certain text value in Excel

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Cristóbal

 

I like to select my rows by holding the shift key as I arrow down colmn A. I then press control and space which highlights the entire row in each case thus completing the block of cells.

 

After selecting all your rows, there are three ways to hide them.

 

I took this from the web:

If you enjoy working with the ribbon, you can hide rows in this way:

1.Go to the Home tab > Cells group, and click the Format button.

2.Under Visibility, point to Hide & Unhide, and then select Hide Rows.

Hide rows in Excel using the ribbon.

Alternatively, you can click Home tab >Format > Row Height and type 0 in the Row Height box.

Either way, the selected rows will be hidden from view straight away.

Hide rows using the right-click menu

In case you don't want to bother remembering the location of the Hide command on the ribbon, you can access it from the context menu: right click the selected rows, and then click Hide.

Hide rows in Excel via the right-click menu.

Excel shortcut to hide row

If you'd rather not take your hands off the keyboard, you can quickly hide the selected row(s) by pressing this shortcut: Ctrl + 9

Subject: [nvda] How to hide rows with certain text value in Excel

 

Hello list,

So, I’m having a bit of  a brain cramp here and need a refresher.

I periodically receive an excel spreadsheet (Office 2016) with hundreds of rows of data for my interpreting business. I have to select which assignments I can cover. There are a myriad of languages and services in this spreadsheet throughout the state of California. As I mainly cover Spanish language assignments, filtering by that language is easy enough, but within that language, there is another criteria in another cell specifying the type of interpretation service requested. Legal, Medical, standard, etc. So, I don’t really cover legal interpretation

And this is where I’m stuck. I’d like to be able to hide the appointments/rows where the requested service is “In Court Certified,” but can’t find where to do it. I’ve poked around online and there are some step-by-step instructions, but either I can’t follow the sequence or they involve macros. I’m not against using macros per say even though I’m not too familiar with them, but I figure there has to be a way to simply hide the rows I’m not interested in seeing and condensing the spreadsheet.

These appointments are pretty much first come first serve, so being able to better filter out the superfluous ones would be a huge help to my productivity instead of sifting through one by one to see if it’s legal or not.

I’m mainly a Jaws user, but I suppose this sort of inquiry can apply to Jaws or NVDA.

Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Cristóbal

I would suggest asking on the BRLTTY list. You'll probably have to
specify the name of the serial device and the BRLTTY braille driver on

Hi


Just confirmed with google chrome

This is with a add blocker.


If I do not have it enabled it will play the show automatically and if enabled the show will not start. When I disabled it again it played automatically.

This is in google chrome. so am guessing it might be the same in other browsers.


I think I will go up later on tonight and note that if using a add blocker to turn it off. I have no add blockers so I think they were showing me the player of which I wrote down the different way to start a movie in a browser.

I will put it on that page under please note near the browser section.

Hi


When I just went into google chrome it played automatically.  I wonder on some websites if you have a add blocker it will stop you from playing shows but they usually give you a message to turn it off. I wonder if that is the case if you have one can you disable it  then try it again.

It may not be the problem but you never know.

I have not got a add blocker on it at present I did but for a website I am testing for accessibility it wanted it off and I can not remember if I just disabled it or removed it.
