Re: NVDA 2017.3 released

I was under the impression that Windows 10s can be upgraded to the full version for people who need more than Narrator to run due to a disability.

Of course how fast a stripped down machine might run in this situation is debatable and to be honest I simply do not see the point of 10s in any way, just as with chromebooks. Since hardware is getting so relatively cheap they might as well build it all into the machine and have done with it.

Hi,

Yes and no. Yes, as it is part of UWP, and no, because NVDA can’t run on Windows 10 S for now. There is a project under investigation that’ll be more meaningful in the long run.

Cheers,

Joseph

So does new OCR support even WIN 10 S? That's great cause this more geared toward education right?

Hi Chris,



Firstly, welcome to the list!



Windows 10 OCR is available for every version of Windows 10, and yes, it runs completely offline.



I saw a post from Feb last year, about the November (2015) update saying how Microsoft had added some new languages, which brought the total at the time, up to 25 languages. You might need at least a particular build of Windows 10 if you are using non-English languages, but I can't find a list.



Regards



Quentin.

Hi,



First of all, I'm new to the list and this is my first post. I have a couple questions about the new OCR feature.



1. Does it work on all versions of Windows 10 or just the Creators version and newer?

2. Does this work even if you're offline?



This release is awesome! It's one of the best ones I've experienced in my 6 or so years of using NVDA.

Hi Dennis,



Good question. The answer, I believe, would be unfortunately not. The OCR functionality we are using, like the OneCore voices, are built-in to Windows 10. If Microsoft ever made them available in earlier versions, then we could use them, sure. In earlier versions of Windows prior to Windows 10, you can still use the OCR Add-on available from https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/ocr.en.html
