Well, I am going to have to pass on the beta. NVDA remote is not listed as a compatible addon and I have two many people that I work with to sacrifice it now.

Hi

 

I will usually use a portable copy of NVDA to test stuff which I launch off my hard drive with a shortcut.

 

Below are the restrictions from the user guide for a portable version of NVDA.

 

3.1. Portable and Temporary Copy Restrictions
Apart from the inability to automatically start during and/or after log-on, the portable and temporary copies of NVDA also have the following restrictions:
• The inability to interact with applications running with administrative privileges, unless of course NVDA itself has been run also with these privileges (not recommended).
• The inability to read User Account Control (UAC) screens when trying to start an application with administrative privileges.
• Windows 8 and later: the inability to support input from a touchscreen.
• Windows 8 and later: the inability to provide features such as browse mode and speaking of typed characters in Windows Store apps.
• Windows 8 and later: audio ducking is not supported.

But doesn’t the portable copy have some restrictions? I’m not sure where this idea came from but it has been in my head for the longest.

No, your existing copy of NVDA will be replaced by the beta. You might want to make a portable copy of the beta rather than installing it to your machine.

Should I uninstall 2019.2.1 first?

Hi.

The NVDA 2019.3 will have screen curtain. After installing the beta you can create a gesture which will allow you to enable the screen curtain. The screen curtain turns the screen black. This means sighted folks will not be able to see what you are doing. My mum confirmed this, as she was not able to see anything I was doing while screen curtain on.
