That is why I'm using waterfox. I do now have the latest firefox working on nvda, but still on windows 7 the 32 bit version of firefox fails to work , ie it is unknown all over the place, and in the previous version of nvda that went for the 64 bit of Firefox too.
I understood that Joseph had a patch for remote, but that the author, or one of the authors has promised to fix it. If the problem is merely wx4, then it looks like its not going to be rocket science if they know what they are doing, as even I have patched a couple of the major ones in 3d Sounds so it works with the default scheme, but am not really up to the rest of it. I think the real crunch on add ons is going to happen when they go Python 3. Its one of those things where from the look of it, the code could well be more efficient and things not now possible can be done, but the pain involved in getting the code to work and all the add ons also to work looks really nasty to me.
I cannot really help, but really, maybe more chats need to be had with NV Access on many of the points I see raised regularly here.
Programmers will always want to improve things but often lose sight of the original goal in the process.
All I'll say is that if it was not for Windows keeping on effectively bringing out a new version of Windows every six months or so, the workload at any screenreader company would not be so high.
I heard an interview with the chap at VFO/FS about Jaws 2019 yesterday and although he is spinning things positively I could not help but notice the little moan about Windows not really leaving things that work alone when they add new features etc. OK its the way things are going perhaps, but I cannot help thinking that with Windows and office changing like the wind and every other bit of software following suit, its no wonder support for us is on shaky ground at times.
OK rant over and I'm not going to blame anyone other than those involved in the development of windows itself.
Since Microsoft seem to change stuff like Skype at a whim, one wonders why we have not got the choice of ordinary and ribbon menus and why the windows 10 apps seem to have been written by people who have not read the windows style guide!
And they ask me why I'm still on Windows 7
