Re: VPN

Mobeen Iqbal
 

Hi.

For what it's worth, I've just signed up with express VPN. I've created shortcuts on my desktop to automatically connect and disconnect from my preferred servers. Each country only has a few locations to choose from but it seems to be working fine for what I need if used via open VPN. downloading their config files isn't hard and neither is configuring the open VPN client to connect/disconnect automatically. I can put instructions on list on how you can automate connections if anyone wants them, this would work with any VPN that supports open VPN.

Cheers,

Mo.

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?

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

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

Parthy Siva
 

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.
