Hello,

For some reason nvda 21.4 slows down my wi-fi connection.

This has only happened recently.

I have now used jaws 2019 with no problem.

Tried uninstalling nvda and re-installed but still the same problem.

Any advice please.

For what its worth nvda works reasonabley on ethernet connection.

While I doubt these suggestions will help, try setting NVDA so that it won’t try to communicate with the server.  In General settings, tell it not to send statistics and not to check for updates. 

 

I’m very skeptical that these changes will make a difference but you might as well see.

Nor can I.  The two are logically disconnected (unless you are using one of the add-ons that require a connection to cyberspace, and even then the change should be imperceptible with perhaps an exception for NVDA Remote).

My braille display is now turned off and I suspect nvda was searching for it.

Can’t think why nvda still should have slowed down wi-fi.

Re: Adding more add-ons to the core

Gene
 

One important question which wasn’t asked is why people who switch have switched screen-readers.  though not a scientific survey, that question may provide useful information.
 
I saw a message earlier today saying that it may be in part because of recurrent add-on incompatibility problems.  But since no question is asked, that, while an interesting speculation, isn’t addressed in the results.  Thus, even as anecdotal evidence, the survey doesn’t address this important question.

Self-selected participants and statistically insignificant sample size makes any survey such as this nothing more than anecdotal data.

While anecdotal data can be interesting in its own right, it cannot be used to draw any conclusions about the target population as a whole.  You must have a randomized sample of sufficient size to do that.

Self-selection of participants is an instant reliability and validity killer.

NVDA and Video Editing Software

Kyle Williams
 

Good Morning NVDA Group Members

 

I trust you are all well and keeping safe.

 

Would you please be so kind as to advise if any which is the most accessible video editing software that can be used with NVDA?

 

 


Re: Adding more add-ons to the core

tim
 

Interesting,and very miss leading.

I looked at there survey for screen reader.

To bad they don't take in consideration how many actual and current users. If you look at the major lists for these screen readers. you will find over 1000 users of all the major screen readers. That don't even come close to how many took the survey.

So taken the amount of users to survey precipitants is way off and hard to take as fact when no supporting proof besides survey.

Off and on it is stated that an add-on will be added to the core.  I don’t recall this being discussed before, but since this is the second time in perhaps two years or less that a lot or most add-ons have been made incompatible, it raises the question if more should be added. 
 
How often is this likely to happen and at what point are add-ons going to be more likely to be lost through attrition if developers don’t want to keep updating them?  Perhaps more serious attention should be given to adding more of them to the core. 
 
I know the argument about keeping NVDA small but add-ons don’t take much room and adding many of them to the core wouldn’t make the program bigger to any extent that matters.

Re: Automatic detecting Braille display

Jujube
 

I am on English language, BrailleNote Touch and QBraille displays and automatic detection causes no problems. I suspect this may be a possible bug related to your specific braille display or something.

Re: Shortcut commands stopping working in NVDA

Abdelrahman Osman
 

Similar to what someone else mentioned: I’m turning NVDA help on and listening to the key that is pressed, then work on it. Usually it would be Shift, Control, or Windows keys. Sometimes I may need to restart NVDA after doing that as well.


Re: Automatic detecting Braille display

dennis huckle
 

What I have noticed is that if I re-start nvda the braille extender add on doesn't come in to play properly.
This is nvda 2121.1
For example to use a shortcut dots 1 2 45 release then m used to take me to outlook
However on the focus this doesn't work unless I re-do the settings for my braille display
I always save all settings in nvda before exiting.
All the addons are then detected and saved to re-start.
Kind regards,
Dennis huckle.

Don't you also have to specify the port in the add-on configuration?
Unless you also change it in the code, it probably won't work. There

But, Gene is pointing out a behavior which has nothing to do whatever

electronic one. Jaws does this where it believes a given control or

added key which jfw always indicated was stuck, when in fact, if it
were mechanically stuck I'd hear either repeats of the control key, or
alt key, or interrupted speech because my synth would be interrupted
by a real sticky mechanical action. :) Tapping the "stuck" key usually
fixed the action in JFW, I'll try and see if it fixes NVDA, but I

Before I say what I'm about to say, I want to preface it with this
contribution is greatly appreciated, at least by me. This is a great
diagnostic to undertake.

With that being said, if the root cause were traced to literal sticky
keys, the solution is getting a new keyboard. There is nothing that
the developers of NVDA could or should do about sticking keyboard keys.

Re: Adding more add-ons to the core

Jujube
 

Hi Eilana, I see where you're coming from and this addons issue is
indeed a concern. I agree that some addons should enter core but
others should not. Nothing's perfect and roadblocks do occur, and this
is one of them that we do need a good solution to overcoming. I hope
we figure out something that's workable. I personally trust Joseph's
perspective as he's a developer and I think the developer community
has our best interests at heart. I heard that addon compatability will
hopefully only be broken once a year which is still kinda a bit much
but at least it's not that bad. It sounds like there's some rapid
changes to Python code which is quite unfortunate...
PS. I don't take the results of the WebAIM survey too seriously as the
sample size is fairly small, it's based on self selection and so the
accuracy is debatable, but we should also remember that NVDA is very
popular outside North America, especially in developing countries
where other more expensive solutions aren't an option, plus, JAWS has
also become much more affordable thanks to the home annual license
subscription in North America so that definitely tips things.
