Some VMware tips.
First, VMware does some mapping of the keys to give you more mac-like
functionality (e.g. cmd+c for copy, etc). This can be disabled in the
preferences, I think it's called keyboard profiles.
Next, you need an NVDA key. Go get SharpKeys and map something with
that. You can also use this to reverse the Alt and Windows keys to be
more PC-like.

When you define a key, it is, assumedly, sending exactly the same code
to the system as any other key you define. My guess is that, if you
can't use insert or caps lock, you can't use anything. it's probably
not the key, it's probably the code that isn't being allowed. I don't
use a Windows emulator so we'll see what others say.

Re: Windows Key commands not working?

Laurie Mehta
 

Hi,
In spite of the disadvantages you mentioned, BootCamp has worked well for me for many years now. DropBox has come in handy for sharing documents between the Apple and Windows environments.

I have heard several people mention the drawbacks of the VM-Fusion approach to doing Windows on a Mac and those people have said that drawbacks apply to using various screen readers, not only using NVDA.

Personally, I use BootCamp and I make use of other Apple devices (iPhone, for example) to access anything Apple that I really need to get at while I'm working in Windows on my MacBookAir.
NVDA is great! Thanks to everybody who is responsible for NVDA! (smile)

won't work.I've even tried to

doesn't have internet.This has happened to me
more than once, this week.Last night, I
didn't have sound.That's happened
more than once as well.What should I do?
Before I started using fusion, I used bootcamp.Should I go back to
that?The
only drawbacks with that are that I'd lose all my data,
I'd have to reboot to switch between mac and Windows,
and would lose the ability to copy files back and forth,
which I'll admit, is pretty handy.What should I do in the

Hi all,

 

For those transitioning from JAWS and/or Window-Eyes to NVDA, you’ll find that NVDA does not include a dialog to show you list om system tray icons. Fortunately, the feature is just an add-on away:

https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/systrayList.en.html

 

I’m delighted to announce the release of SystrayList add-on 2.0. The biggest difference (apart from the fact that there is a new contributor in town) is that the actual system tray list dialog is now center3ed on screen instead of position on the top left corner of the screen.

I’m delighted to announce the release of SystrayList add-on 2.0. The biggest difference (apart from the fact that there is a new contributor in town) is that the actual system tray list dialog is now center3ed on screen instead of position on the top left corner of the screen.

 

Enjoy.

Meet SystrayList add-on 2.0

 

Hi all,

 

For those transitioning from JAWS and/or Window-Eyes to NVDA, you’ll find that NVDA does not include a dialog to show you list om system tray icons. Fortunately, the feature is just an add-on away:

I'm also wondering whether Codefactory's add on is worth it. The price is, as mentioned, 59 euros, which is 2267.13 Thai baht according to Siri. I currently have Vocalizer by Tiflotecnia, which works fine except for the Thai voice which has some issues. I tried the Codefactory version and the Thai voice works well.


Re: applicationsDictionary

 

Could someone gives some more information regarding this add-on
please? I fail at finding more information about it when I search.

Please and thanks

Hi,

Just hit NVDA+shift+p when the focus is on the application you want to have
a dictionary for, and the normal NVDA dictionary dialog will pop up for you
to add entries valid only for this application.

Hi there 

If you are using a laptop machine you may have to turn off the default hotkeys in bios. Maybe a sighted person could have a look for you.

When you define a key, it is, assumedly, sending exactly the same code to the system as any other key you define.  My guess is that, if you can't use insert or caps lock, you can't use anything.  it's probably not the key, it's probably the code that isn't being allowed.  I don't use a Windows emulator so we'll see what others say.

Hi,
I already have thet app, but nothing I do works.
I don’t want to turn off the Mac keyboard thing, because I need access to both sides.
What else can I try?

First, VMware does some mapping of the keys to give you more mac-like functionality (e.g. cmd+c for copy, etc). This can be disabled in the preferences, I think it's called keyboard profiles.
Next, you need an NVDA key. Go get SharpKeys and map something with that. You can also use this to reverse the Alt and Windows keys to be more PC-like.

 It's worth trying again and seeing if you get a better tech this time.

It's not likely that you're going to find the solution you're looking for here, and that's not because sincere efforts aren't being made.  This is clearly something "off" that will likely take a tech digging around to figure out what.

Also, what's your status with support from VMWare?  You could start with them instead.

Hi,
I realize that, but that's what vmWare fusion won't me do.
I can't use capslock as my NVDA modifyer, under vmWare fusion.
What key could I use instead?
