NVDA 2019.3 and add-ons: status as of 2019.3 beta 4


 

Hello NVDA users,

 

What a week it was – two NVDA 2019.3 betas in a span of few days. And you know what this means: another update on add-ons and 2019.3 readiness.

 

The biggest news is that NVDA Remote add-on is one step closer to 2019.3 compatibility. A few days ago, NV Access people sent necessary changes to make the add-on compatible with NVDA 2019.3 to add-on writers, which was subsequently accepted. Although work remains to be done, the add-on is getting ready for 2019.3 users.

 

Also, once NVDA 2019.3 release candidate (RC) is released, expect numerous important announcements from add-ons community on status of various add-ons. These will include another compatibility briefing, along with add-on authors announcing release of NVDA 2019.3 compatible versions of their add-ons or a schedule as to when these versions will appear on stable channel (I myself will announce such information within 24 hours after RC is released). Once 2019.3 RC is released, it will become crucial for users of incompatible add-ons to contact authors about the status of their add-ons, especially add-ons listed as incompatible on community add-ons website (under Announcements, Python 3 announcement page).

 

Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph
