The problem with that is that someone else can input that same number and get control of your clients machine.

Dean, let's ensure a couple things.
1) Is the app actually installed? Press NVDA+n, then t & up arrow 1.
Does it say remote? If not, then the remote app isn't installed.)
2) Now try connecting. Once the connect option is chosen ensure that
client is selected & you're controlling the machine, & your trainee
has selected
to allow control from another machine.
3) Make certain you both have typed the same key in the key part of
the dialog. That means same case, whole 9yd. Then press ok.

f11 allows you to control the machine. Pressing it again lets you
access your own machine.

If it were a Linux system, I might be in a position to help, but
unfortunately I'm not familiar with Windows serial port handling or
whether BRLTTY supports it.

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
the command line or in the brltty.conf configuration file.

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

Re: my normal mode suddenly changes to text review mode

Aschalew Byness
 

I am using the standard arrow keys for navigation. Indeed, it
sometimes become difficult to read with the standard arrow keys for
navigation. The problem is when I try to write or read. Because, when
I open a document to read and edit, the system carret (the edit
cursor) remains at the beginning of the document. And when I try to
read word by word with control + left/right arrow, it doesn’t work. In
this case, I read word by word with control+nvda key + left/right
arrow, which is reading keystroke for text review mode. to be able to
edit and read with the standard arrow keys for navigation, I restart
my pc; and it temporarily works fine.

Re: tubi add 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.

Re: tubi add on?

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.

Re: tubi add on?

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi Which browser are you using? In the tutorial there is a section of different ways in playing the videos. some will automatically just start and with some other browsers it starts a different way.


The page it comes off is http://accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20tutorials%20for%20other%20programs.html

The subject line that you jump down to by headings is using tubi tv with nvda but has a little on mobile devices with the app. they are more accessible with talk back and have been told voice over and on my samsung tv it works with voice guide. some qwerks but I can live with that.


They are probably more accessible than the web part but if a few people asked them to add short cuts to the player and label  some of the buttons etc a lot of visually impaired people will be happy.



On the link given to where the tutorial can be found there i is a section on starting the movie/show with a browser.


hope it helps.
