I tried using Express VPN last year but its client was very hard to navigate with NVDA. I figured out how to connect to a VPN but it connected to only one in the whole time I used it whereas I was hoping to choose from a range of available servers.

I let my Express VPN account lapse when my year's membership expired.

All controls on the Express VPN window were not labelled ... there were at least five "button" buttons. I did speak to their tech support team about this but they were not much help ... I'm not sure they really understood what screen reading software was :(

Re: VPN

Sascha Cowley
 

True, but this is often an unsatisfactory solution: many VPN providers have multiple servers, all of which their software knows about, allowing you to easily select one that suits your needs, or have the software select the most suitable server based on current usage; using OpenVPN you have, to the best of my knowledge, to keep track of all of the servers yourself, and cannot automatically select the most suitable one. I've not tried it myself, and this is based on having read a couple of help articles, though, so I could be wrong.

Just tested it, they work even when I plug them in when NVDA runs, no need to restart NVDA. I can’t tell you the brand, it does not show up with a brand or modell in the device manager. I bought them in a chinese shop for $4 each at gearbest.com. In the last years, independent from the screen reader people were using I read a lot of problems with this external numpads so I went for this cheap ones from China, I guess I was lucky….

I wonder if it depends on the numpad.  What brand or brands did you buy and do you know the models?

 

Also, do you have to connect them at any particular time such as before bootup or before running NvDA?

Subject: [nvda] Using an External Numpad

Hello

Well, it has finally happened again: I have obtained a laptop with no numpad.

Since I actually intend for this to be portable (not a desktop replacement, in other words), and I hate the laptop
layout, I thought I could just plug in an external numpad, switch to desktop layout, and poof.

But no joy: the numpad does not get grafted on to the existing keyboard as if the keyboard had a numpad. Even in desktop
mode, the keys are read as home, end, pgup, pgdn, etc..

Is there some known way to cause an external numpad to be perceived by NVDA as a built in numpad for purposes of the
desktop layout?

I have tried remapping with gestures, but that just results in things like the up arrow key becoming unavailable on the
regular keyboard (being mapped to read current line instead of just the numpad 8 I intended).

I suppose I may need to find a way to cause Windows not to replicate the normal keyboard scancodes when the numpad is
used.

Re: Desperately Seeking Solutions to SPL Problems

 

Hi,

I’m thinking it might be a DLL. The best course of action is reinstall Studio 5.40 right after restarting the DJ’s computer.

There may be files and registry entries that need to be manually removed.  Perhaps something is opened, in the sense that something in the registry or some sort of open at bootup sequence is using one or more files.

Hello list.

 

I’m writing to this list because I’m a little stumped and apparently, Station Playlist support isn’t able to offer much assistance.

 

Here’s the situation.  One of my DJ’s had a problem with Station Playlist 5.30 so he updated to 5.4 using the latest NVDA and SPL add-on, with Windows 10.  Updating to 5.4 didn’t fix his problem so he tried uninstalling and reinstalling Station Playlist Studio.  During installation he received an error message stating that SPL can’t be installed because some of its files are still open.  A check of the task manager revealed that nothing was running.

 

I’m open for any suggestions or solutions, as SPL support insists that something is open.

 

Thanks.

Re: Add-on issues after system restore on Windows 10

Hi everyone,

Thanks for all your inputs.
I am using the latest stable version of NVDA and add-ons. So, I know it is not compatibility issues as I have successfully ran these add-ons with this version of NVDA.

I too think that system restore is the culprit. I had no other options.

I guess re-installing NVDA is the solution.

Thanks again.

I know you want to put it out when its stable, but since we’re in the month of December, do you think it might be in beta this month and then released before the year 2020? Thanks, Sky.

That's pretty much it, though the secondary drive can also be internal, but I don't recommend that.

At one time it was standard practice to have one's system image backup drive constantly connected and one's backup & recovery software set up to take full system image backups and/or incremental backups at specific intervals.  Since the advent of ransomware, this is no longer recommended practice (unless you're using a cloud-based backup solution such as Carbonite, to name but one) because ransomware will encrypt each and every drive it can find that's currently connected on a given system, sometimes even on a given network once it finds the first entry point.   The last thing in the world you want is for your system image and/or user data backup drive or drives to be encrypted during a ransomware attack, as then they cannot serve their intended purpose.  Current best practice is to have a backup drive connected in only two circumstances: 

1.  You're taking a backup.

2.  You're restoring from a backup.

Otherwise, they should be offline.

Thanks, Brian. I have backups made once a week and plug in my external drive for this purpose and for backing up important documents.

 

Call me old-fashioned, but I don’t go near clouds. Using them may sound convenient and easy, yet I don’t want my data stored by some company and don’t trust such storage facilities.
