Yes but your own comments do not come back to you, which seems an odd way of working to me.

hi gene, bhavya, quentin, brian and all.

i subscribed to nvda github and reported my bugs and also suggestions.

even i can subscribed to recieve notifications (for example for new
comments) without sending comment.
i recieve new comments from developers and users.
God bless you all.

Odd, it seems to be working for me. Can anyone else reproduce this

Easiest way is to go to:

Press TAB four times to get to the Browse button and then press spacebar or
enter to activate it. It should bring up a standard Windows file open

Otherwise, the only thing I can think of, is whether you had explorer
crashed or busy in the background or something?

It did not work in firefox either, I think short fragments of the log in
the body are OK its other files that you really need to attach in case
get corrupted.
It seems to me that the browse, um does not browse ..!

Thanks for this excellent explanation!

I am being asked to attach the actual text file to a new issue rather
than simply pasting in the contents of the log file, for instance . The
problem is that I cannot get any option to attach a file when I clicked
the “browse” button. It would be a great help if you could explain how
attach a file using NVDA.

All the best,

As mentioned, if you want to create a ticket, submit an issue or
generally report something that isn't working / could work better /
be implemented etc, what you want to do is create a new issue. The link
the issues section is <>

Unless you are writing code yourself, you can mostly ignore the other
sections (code, pull requests, projects, etc).

Ideally, it's worth jumping to the SECOND edit box on that page to
for the issue you want to report. (the first one searches code and
things, you want to search issues). So, if someone reported a problem
footnotes in Word 2016 for instance, I'd search for "word 2016
or similar in that second edit box. There are two types of issues, open
and closed. Open issues are either new issues that haven't been triaged
(that is, no one has looked at them to see how serious they are, whether
the issue has already been reported etc), or issues which are being
on, or waiting to be worked on. Closed issues are issues which have
been fixed, or which are duplicates of other issues, or sometimes things
which can't or won't be fixed. If the problem with footnotes is that
want them to appear at the top of the page for instance, then that isn't
something related to NVDA. That's a feature request for Word itself and
you'd need to submit that to Microsoft.

To create a new issue, there is a "new issue" button, you can jump
straight there with <>

When you create a new issue, there is a block of text in the "comment"
prompting you for the kinds of information that are useful in diagnosing
the issue. Please try and include: steps to reproduce the issue, attach
any files which might help (eg if Word crashes every time you try and
formatting in this particular file, if you can share it, that would
what should happen and what actually happens, and your system
(Windows version, application version, NVDA version and whether
or portable), and anything you've done to try and resolve or get more
information (eg tried different version of NVDA or other program).
stress if you don't have every piece of that information or if you
sure if the issue has been filed before. When someone goes to triage the
issue, they will ask for more information if needed. If the issue has
filed previously, they will link to it (and likely close the duplicate
issue you created).

If you do have any more questions, please feel free to ask.

Kind regards

may find the page confusing. Is there a way that some sort of short help
information can be inserted after the navigation links on the page,
instructing people what to do to create what are called tickets, perhaps
also how to search for tickets and how to create an account? If tickets
are desired from the widest variety of users, this process should be
somehow explained and done so in a place that those wishing to create
tickets will be likely to see the explanation.
