NVDA remote

It seems to no longer work. Does any one know of an alternative that will work with NVDA?

In short, no. I thought Joseph was making a patch for Python 3 but I'd write to the developers about this. Especially since Python 3 is coming closer!


 

Hi,

I once tried to do that, but found it difficult to port the add-on to Python 3. Besides, Remote add-on patches speech functions that may have seen vast changes between 2019.2 and 2019.3, contributing to headaches.

Cheers,

Joseph

I wrote to Chris. I hope he responds. I have a number of clients using NVDA.

I am using it. It seems to work fine here.

When did you last update NVDA? This happened just a couple of days ago when I updated the addon for Win10.

Good news. I removed win10 app essentials from my laptop and now remote works again.

I still need to know what to do with a remote.2.2 does not allow the user to connect or open options.

Hi,

Hmmm, that’s interesting, more because my own add-on has failed to live up to its expectations…

I’d like to get data from others experiencing the same issue where Windows 10 App Essentials interferes with Remote for some reason, and only removing the former restores the latter’s functionality. If this can be reproduced reliably, I’ll look into creating another mitigation.

Cheers,

Joseph

Joseph,

I’ve never experienced an issue with remote and win10 app essentials. If I can get far enough back in today’s backlog of mail and can find reliable steps, I’ll go play around with stuff and see if it’s reproduceable in some way.

Robert,

To fix remote’s busted wherein the connection/options dialogs won’t come up, delete %appdata%\nvda\remote.ini and restart NVDA. Why this happens is beyond me and I haven’t taken the time to grab the source and debug that particular busted as it’s just rare enough to not have reliable steps for reproduction.

Is there any way to change the f11 command in remote?it conflicts with the key in Money talks that shows running balance.

Joseph,

I had to remove Win10 app essantials too, for a diffeent reason.

When I typed, while my braille display presented me with the typed text immediately asexpected, the synth (espeak) kind of recited character by character very slowly, and I could no longer act on what i was working at until it had finished.
Upon a friend's suggestion, I disabled the add-on, and all works as expected.
hth,
Ollie
ps: I noticed that behaviour especially in Unigram, but also in Notepad, Libreoffice, but not so much in thunderbird.

Can you provide a diag log to the nvda team with the add on in question turned on so he can troubleshoot?
