Accessable antivirus program #addonrelease

Oleksandr Gryshchenko
 

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!

Using an External Numpad

Luke Davis
 

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.

Luke


Re: Does NVDA work with gaming keyboards?

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.

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.

Re: Accessing alerts on webpages

It is, or was, an add-on.  Don't know if it will be brought forward to work with next NVDA version, however.

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.

wonder if everything that would have been spoken is in speech history.

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.


On 12/3/2019 10:49, Gene wrote:
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
save this password alert or answer an incoming chat request on a
chat
help page?

Thanks for any help,

Does NVDA 2019.3 work with gaming keyboards?  I had my husband download NVDA onto his desktop and I couldn't get any of the command to work even after I played with the settings.  This was with using the desktop along with web pages.  Windows 10, Google Chrome, NVDA 2019.3.


Re: Accessing alerts on webpages

leochick78@...
 

Sorry for forgetting to include browser info, etc.  I am using Firefox Quantum, Windows 10, NVDA 2019 (first version, I think.)  I have that trouble with the alert being interrupted by the loaded page starting to read so I don't always get the alert commands.  I turned off the alerr to ask if one wants to save the password for sites and that has helped.  Does IE still exist?  Thanks for all the help.
