Re: NVDA 2019.3 Beta 1 is out

Mike Sedmak

Will python 3 compatible synthesizers be backwards compatible with 2019.2?
Or will vocalizer and other synth users need to:
1. disable the current synth
2. upgrade to 2019.3
3. Download the synth update and re-enable the synthesizer

Kostadin: I'm not sure when the translation freeze will begin, I'd suggest
likely early in the new year, but don't quote me on that - I'll try to get
you a more up to date answer.

Shaun: I'm not sure what you were replying to there about not wanting
another announcement? Which one don't you want? Also re audio themes,
yes, it will come, not in 2019.3, but it will come :)

Robert: Feel free to try the beta out, even if you are using non-standard
add-ons, at least you can work out what will work and what won't and maybe
find an alternative way for some things or convince add-on authors to
update (and ideally publish on the community page - unless they....
wouldn't meet the legal requirements, shall we say, in which case, do
consider finding an alternative :))

Gene: Glad the update didn't break your startup setting. Fingers crossed
it works from now on! :)

starting nvda when windows starts up. it used to un check the box so glad

Hi Sky,

The copy to clipboard etc conversation comes up regularly. For now, I'll
just direct you to my comment last time this came up:

Re Remote, there are arguments for and against that. For, as you say,
means new users don't need to install an update. Against is we often get
asked by companies installing NVDA about security and what data NVDA can
does send. Currently, it's quite easy to answer, as the program sends
little information and no personal information or speech content or what
the user is doing. If we included Remote in the core, we'd need to work
out how to keep everyone happy. I'm not saying we can't or wouldn't, but
it won't be in 2019.3 (not least of which because aside from whether we
agree or not, we don't tend to add too many new features after we release
beta - from now on, work on 2019.3 will primarily be around stability and
addressing any issues which get reported. New features will still be
worked on, but for Alpha releases looking towards inclusion in 2019.1.

Hello Quentin. I have downloaded the NVDA 2019.3.1 Beta release, and I
have noticed a huge improvements over the 2019.2 one. Speech refactor is
certainly a wonderful thing and I applaud speech refactor very much.
However, there is one suggestion that could be included in the next
And that is the ability to have NVDA say, copied to clipboard, cut to
clipboard, without the need for an add-on, and the second is I’d like to
see the remote functionality built into the core of NVDA so that those
us who train on NVDA like myself can help clients without them having to
install add-ons. Thanks, Sky.
