Re: Donation Too nerve wracking
I just tried the download button again about ten minutes after my last check and it worked. I think the problem is caused by the donation page being too busy to let new people use it at the time.

I checked the problem. The first time I used the download button a little earlier in the day, it worked. When I checked again, it didn't. I went to the site twice and it didn't either time. That was when I had one of the donation selections selected. When I selected the skip donation this time, the download button worked. So the problem isn't with the download button. Perhaps the download process is overloaded with people making donations and you can't be sent there now so nothing happens. Whatever the case, the problem needs to be looked into. If the form gets over loaded, then a message should be displayed saying to try again later.

Have you made any changes such as using a script blocker? I haven't tried, but you may have problems if scripts are blocked. Are you using a different browser? Have you tried more than one?

I just tried to download NVDA. I checked the one off donation for $30
and it took me to a button saying download. No matter what I do to this
button, it does nothing at all. Hitting enter, pressing space bar, or
routing mouse to it and using left mouse click. The page just sits
there. This used to take me right to PayPal and after entering my
password, it accepted my donation and took me right back to continue to
download and that was all there was to it. Don't know why the download
button isn't working, but it isn't Hope this problem can be fixed. I was
able to check for update to NVDA and I got it that way but I wanted to
get the actual installer file and I currently cannot do this.
