Hi Terrie,

 

There are some great experts here on the list and I am confident one will step forward for you.  Another place you might consider looking is the NVDA Certified Experts list.  Along with their basic details, many of the people on the list who do provide services such as training have also included their contact or business details.  You can find the list here: https://certification.nvaccess.org

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.

Re: Can't run NVDA with admin rights on a MS Surface

james.luxton@...
 

Hi Quentin,

I installed the software with an admin account and can run the software without issues on the admin account.  When I log in as a standard user, NVDA will not run and this is only an issue on Microsoft Surface laptops(All our Lenovo units run fine).  Currently I am running NVDA in Portable mode to get my users up and running but I was hoping to resolve the standard install.

Thank you,
James

Since I updated, my external card does not work with all applications as it did before.

I did a system restore and now it works with Sound Forge but not with Station Play List. It defaults back to my laptop and that is not good.

need to connect Alva BC640 - MY BRAILLE DISPLAY with NVDA

Moty Azrad
 

Dear all,

 

I go to to NVDA menu - settings – choose Braille and press on change.

I don’t see Alva or optelec in the list of Braille displays.

In the past – I do remember that Alva was the first braille display in the list.

I have Baum super vario 40 too and this Braille display I connect soon without any problems.

I went to device manager and choosed ports and open it I see there only usb super vario. Anyway, I used the application key and went to update driver.

I connect my Alva bc640 and select search not automatic but Browse, press some tabs and get a list of software button, press on it but can not find Alva or optelec in this list.

So, how do I connect my Alva bc640 with NVDA, THE LATEST version?

 

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Re: NVDA and spell checking in Notepad++

George Kerscher
 

Hi Rick, Yep, I have been with DAISY since 1997!

 

David, the document formatting is not working in Notepad++. The spell checking is working, but a bit slow to activate I hit Alt+p, down arrow to spell check, enter then , f for find next, enter, and I am taken to the next spelling error. Then activate the context menu and the suggestions are there.

 

Casey, I have the Windows spelling option enabled. Settings, device, typing, and the options seem to be enabled. However, in Notepad++ I do not see any effect.

George

 

 

It would be nice if there was a hot key for a dialogue that would walk through the document to each error. If there

Re: anyone had this issue when updating the latest windows update aug302019

Raha Tehrani
 

Hi I've recently updated to the latest version of windows 10 64 bit.
that is:
Microsoft Windows
Version 1903 (OS Build 18362.329)
I've had no problems with the start menu or the search system or even
with no other parts of the operating system.
I think up something here. I just got an update for my dotnet
frameworks version 3 and 4.
maybe the issue emerged becaused you hadn't installed the dotnet
framework update before you installed the operating system major
update. just give it a try.
have much fun.

Re: NVDA and spell checking in Notepad++

 

Hi George. I’ve played around with Notepad++ but not with that plugin.

You could try the built-in typing spell checker in windows if you haven’t already. It works in a similar way to how autocorrect  suggestions work on smartphones. The nice thing about it is that it works everywhere, and you can navigate suggestions with the left/right arrow keys.

Groups.io - Controls you receive in every message as well as controlling the messages you receive to begin with

 

This message, obviously, is not NVDA related, but related to using Groups.io, and for controls many may not know about.  I will post stuff like this occasionally, and it applies to any Groups.io group you may be subscribed to.

Since these controls occur at the very end of a message, after the user's signature if they're using one, many people are unaware that they even exist.  You get these in every message that lands in your inbox from Groups.io, and some of them are occasionally to frequently useful.  Others you'll probably never use whether you're an e-mail subscriber or web group reader.  I will place an asterisk ahead of the ones that you're likely to want to use on certain occasions, but will document all of them in the order they are presented.
 
View/Reply Online link with the topic number as part of the link -  Email users have no reason to use this because simply hitting reply allows them to reply via email.  If you want to use the web interface instead, then activate that link.
 
Reply to Group link - Again, not generally used by e-mail users since a simple Reply via e-mail does the same thing.
 
*Reply to Sender link - This one is really very handy.  If you want to reply to the sender and only the sender of that message via email, this is the way to do it.  When you activate that link it should cause your email client to automatically open a compose window with the subject prepopulated with the topic title and the to address being that of the sender of that message.  You can, of course, modify the subject as you see fit.  This makes private responses for any reason very easy to make.
 
*Mute This Topic link - Also very handy at times.  If a particular topic is of no interest to you or there's any other reason you don't want to receive any additional messages for that topic, activate this link.  It will block any additional messages from that specific topic being sent to you.
 
New Topic link - Email users will seldom, if ever, use this as you can just send to the posting address with a new subject to create a new topic.
 
Your Subscription link - if activated will open the subscription page for your account, if you are logged in to Groups.io in your web browser.  If not, it will take you to  the Groups.io login screen then directly to your Subscription page after logging in.
 
*Contact Group Owner link - if activated will open your e-mail client's compose window with the Owner address for the group prepopulated.  Saves having to type the owner address.
 
and, finally Unsubscribe link (which includes the e-mail address you're subscribed under as part of that link) - self-explanatory

The following does not apply to something you receive in every message, but is still important to know about.  Download and keep for your reference (pick your format):

Controlling the Messages You Receive via E-Mail from Groups.io (docx)

Controlling the Messages You Receive via E-Mail from Groups.io  (PDF)

Both describe how you, as a Groups.io user, can exercise very tight control over what comes to your inbox from a given group in the first place.

I don’t use Notepad ++ but the normal way NVDA indicates spelling error sounds is through the Document formatting panel.

Use NVDA Control  and D to bring up that dialogue and make sure that indicate spelling errors is checked amongst the many options hosted there.
