Re: dialogue boxes and go silent with 2016 NVDA Version

Dear David& Lis:

The NVDA web site hopefully includes comments such as: Last stable version for Win 7, although others have posted the version you want

You would think a button visually would look like a button, however, I believe they may be depicted as square or other shapes.

Of course with speech output, unless a button says Octagonal red button, you do not know its visual shape or color.

My Bank likes to say click the big green button in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.

I guess I can get the whereabouts of a button or link, however I have to go hunting for it.

First letter navigation for links makes finding the right likened a snap.

Hello Brian and list,

I did see your posts, and thank you for the ways to initiate buttons and links.

I also notice from recent discussion here, that buttons seem to be a bit vague
In definition as they can convey different things.

You suggested updating to the latest version of NVDA for windows 7.
How do I designate that particular choice of versions?
