Actually you will find it on the snaps page as the latest snap in the rc branch, its also on its own page so if you still have a copy of the old rc2 from the last time, say a portable version as I have it will download when you run that version.

This problem has come up before when sub versions have been built. the updater is not programmed to look for release candidates.

Hi,
No, 2018.1.1 is required. Although most of you are running Version 1709 or
earlier, if you run 2018.1 on the latest Insider Preview build and use
OneCore synthesizer, you'll notice oddities.
Cheers,
Joseph

I am confused myself. NVDA January 2018? So does this mean The latest
version is good to go? 2018.1

Hi everyone,

The following advisory is rated �major� due to high impact:

Toward end of development for Windows 10 Version 1803, Microsoft
changed a critical component in Windows OneCore speech synthesizer
(specifically, bitrate). This causes OneCore synthesizer to sound a
bit funny, including higher pitch. NV Access has just released a
release candidate for NVDA 2018.1.1 which will correct this problem.
Because of this, you need to be running 2018.1.1 for best experience
with Windows 10 Version 1803.

Thank you.

Cheers,

Jospeh
