locked Re: blank line reading by NVDA


hi arlene.
windows xp and seven are both my favorite operating system.
both of them have there advantages.
but i dont love change just for change without any logical reason for myself!
about windows ten, i really hate it and i am sure that never use it.
i dont want an operating system that i am concern for my privacy,
updates itself automaticly,
and i should disable tens of settings that it becomes usable for me
without concern about privacy!
moreover, i always follow technology news and win ten fortunately has
not even one important feature or change that i cant live without it!

dont worry, anyone who wish to discuss furthere, she-he can email me!

Hey Zara! Are you afraid of change? The reason I’m asking you this. If you
are and you are sayig you like xp. Trust me I’ve been there! I was not so
scared to go windows 7. But I was afraid of ten. I’m here on ten and still
trying to adjust! My 7 box sound card burned out. So did some of my usb
ports. That 7 box was going down the tube. Now I’m on ten. I try to do
things like I did with 7. Because I forget this is win ten. It takes
getting used to. You really need to let xp go. I say this because Rosemarie
is right one day your xp box wil bite the dust. It will badly slow down on
you it may not go on the web very well. Trust me Zara I’ve been there. With
my xp box it would not go on IE quickly. I had to give it to a sighted
person. Not trying to scare you Zara. Reallity is you have to move on like
it or not.

Hi, Zara,

Not trying to be mean but will you still be thankful when you can't use your
computer anymore because of out-of-date programs?

i always appreciate developers of opensource softwares.
i always pray for them even in my five times daily obligatory prayers!
i am grateful to God that created me in the time of technology.
i always pray and request divine infinite mercy and blessings for developers
of my favorite softwares, and i always emphasize my appreciation towards
for most my favorite programs, including firefox, nvda, and thunderbird, i
am satisfied with the versions that i have and select to use those versions

In the case of his add-on, there is nothing you can do if you are
going to stay in Windows XP with NVDA 2017.2 or 2017.3. He has not

make it backward compatible even with NVDA 2019.2, so
2017.3 is a hopeless case unless you write your own.

For some add-ons, it is not that difficult to make them compatible
with old

versions of NVDA. However others use features that are only available
in newer versions of NVDA, or are so difficult to implement in older
versions that nobody wants to bother given how few people use those
old versions.

Sometimes some developers will make an effort to make sure things work
for users who won't, or can't, advance along with the vast majority.
But that is completely optional, and you can never expect that to
happen, just be grateful when it does. In this case, it isn't

I am sorry if this sounds harsh, but if you choose to stay in the
stone age, do not be surprised if you are more and more isolated
there, with fewer people looking back to see if new things will meet
your needs.
By choosing to stay in the past, you are choosing to miss out. That's
just how it works.

I am now working on a new add-on called Phonetic Punctuation - I
hope to release a stable version in the next couple of weeks - it
will allow you to accomplish that. It can also replace the word
blank with a configurable auditory icon, or just with silence. The
catch is that this add-on is only going to work with NVDA versions
2019.3 and above.

If you're interested - so far a not very stable version available:


But if you're looking to completely remove the word "blank" from
- you can also do what others have suggested and do it in speech

I want to ask, how can I stop NVDA to read or show in braille blank
lines, such in emails, websites, or other platforms?
