I recommend Windows Defender, it is accessible and effective.

Hello friends!
Please advise a good antivirus for Windows with an accessible interface for screenreaders.
I'm currently using "Avast Internet Security", but it is completely inaccessible to NVDA.
Thank you for any advices!

Re: Accessable antivirus program #addonrelease

 

A third for Windows Defender/Windows Security if you are using Windows 8.1 or 10.

If you're still on Windows 7, now is the time to upgrade to Windows 10, as it's barely over 1 month until it falls out of support.

Re: Using an External Numpad

Luke Davis
 

Can you tell me the brands and maybe even model numbers?

From the research I've been doing in the last couple hours, it seems to be that most external numpads just send the keyboard version of the number-row scancodes, not the numpad version. Therefore Windows has no way of knowing that there is a separate keyboard involved.

Some of the really expensive stuff, like Leopold brand (but not all of them) appear to send the correct sequences, but most of the cheap stuff apparently doesn't, or it's a crap shoot at any rate. But, I'm not paying over $100 for a number pad.

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.

I use windows defender. That's pretty accessible. With that, I don't need another antivirus program.

Re: Does NVDA work with gaming keyboards?

leochick78@...
 


Yes, Gene, I thought of that and tried it with no effect.  Tyler, it is  my husband's keyboard and it works for him.  I am used to using an ancient laptop with JAWS is why I am questioning the keyboard.  No special anti-virus.  Thanks all, I will keep working on it.


Re: Does NVDA work with gaming keyboards?

Tyler Spivey
 

What makes you think it's the keyboard? Does the keyboard work?
Do you, perhaps, have an antivirus program that might be intercepting the keys?

Hi


I do not know about gaming keyboards but if it is a web page you need to be in browse mode for the quick navigation keys to work not in focus mode.


It sounds like you are not in browse mode so there might of be a edit box?


You can change to browse mode with nvda key + space bar.

Oh, they're probably still on the screen when they get interrupted,
unless they disappear after a certain amount of time. Some do I imagine,
but I'll bet others don't, e.g. something that's asking if you want
notifications from a site. Also, I have no idea what you mean by "speech
history". So far as I can tell it's not part of standard NVDA anyway.

To be fair, it's not that simple. A lot of times for me, alerts get
interrupted by some other web event, and i only get part of them. So
having a way to access them would be pretty handy. Suppose for example
that a page is loading. An alert pops up, but then the page finishes
loading and NVDA begins reading the page. There goes the alert
message.

What browser are you using?  It is the browser that displays these
kinds of alerts in certain places, whether they originate from the
browser or the web page.  If you let the entire message speak and
don't interrupt it, you should hear choices with commands for them
like allow, alt a don't allow, alt d.  I made up those choices and
letters but I make sure to listen to all speech and pay very close
attention to the choices and commands.
I'm not sure if and how you see these things after they have spoken.
If an unfamiliar message occurs, unless you know it is of no
interest,
don't stop it and pay very close attention to see if any choices and
commands are given if the message is that kind of message.

How does one access alerts on a webpage?  Like the would you like to
