Its not as if they have left XP users with a lame version after all. its well good enough to be used daily. I think the only way this person is going to get what they want is to find soem programmers willing to do the required work, that would depend on a huge number of nvda users wanting the updates to continue. it is after all open source but it would need to be a completely different branch of the code, also hanging on to the legacy tools to build it as well.

Well presumably the NVDA devs have the same viewpoint, since they no longer
support XP.



That argument is counterproductive. I know they can't support XP, but if
that was a view, then they would do their very best to continue its support.



All the best

So, in your view of the world, poor countries don't exist and everyone can
just go out and get a more modern computer and if they don't, its their own
damn fault. Are you aware that even according to the developers own
statements, one of the important reasons NVDA was developed was to serve
those who couldn't afford to buy for profit screen-readers? Why do you
think XP has been supported so long by NVDA? Because the developers
recognize that many users can't get access to newer machines with more
modern versions of Windows.



Also, do you read your messages before you send them? Some of your message
was unintelligible though I gather it was about XP being a vector to spread
a virus and a good deal else in your message was really sloppy with blatant
typographical errors. If you are angry and make all sorts of mistakes, that
is particularly the time to read your message before sending it an
correcting it.

Sure it is. Time ti get off the XP train. If you don't its your own damn
fault. Theier was a cute little the world famous Patric Perdue sand with the
help of DecTalk Virus. I'm sticking with WIN 10 and NVDA 2020 if I'm alive
in 2020 when its released. I'm done. Now, but NVDA 2017.3 discusion.

I think 2 things. One their is a language barier or 2. This person is 2

the XP train or get left behinsd. Windows 10. Its good for you.

Perhaps a paradox is an example. Two contradictory statements can't both be
true although, they can both seem to be until the problem causing such an

years, that was a serious problem in quantum mechanics until theories and
models were developed that accounted for both observations.

I've often wondered about this.

Surely a profound truth is a correct statement.

So, if the opposite of that correct statement is a false statement, how can
it
be another profound truth?
