Re: Using NVDA on XP?


James Bentley <bentleyj1952@...>
 

Thank you Quentin and Joeseph,
 
I’ll get this info to my friend right away. I am curious as to how well he likes NVDA on XP.
 
Concerning NVDA and windows 7, I tried to fill out an insurance form yesterday using Jaws.  Jaws did not recognize my imput on part of the form.  Hmmm, useless on that particular site in both IE and Chrome.  I cranked up NVDA just to try it.  I had the form filled out with Chrome in ten minutes.  Kind of strange how that worked out.
 
Cheers,
 
James

Hi James,
 
As Joseph noted, the last version of NVDA that works on Windows XP is NVDA 2017.3.  The download for that version is: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/releases/2017.3/nvda_2017.3.exe
 
Kind regards
 
Quentin.

Hi all,

 

I have a friend who is interested in using NVDA on a computer running XP.

 

Can he just down load the latest NVDA or should he try for an earlier version.  If so, which version?

 

Many thanks,

 

James B
