Re: windows ten and nvda 2017 versions:


Luke, Arlene here. I had both versions of NVDA 17.2 all the way to 19 something. But when my windows 7 died I lost all versions.  The one I did get back was NVDA 19 something.  I didn’t think it would work for windows ten not unless like you said if you were testing addons. It would probably work. I would have given it to Zarah but I lost it when my 7 lost audio and died.  I did have it on a thumb drive but when I loaned the drive to my room mate while she was helping her mom they deleted it thinking it would not work for win ten.  They installed the 19 version on her mom’s ten box just as they did mine. Oh well. That’s how it goes.

thanks so much for your reply!

may i contact you offline and ask some questions in this regard?

however, my favorite version of nvda is 2017.2.

but espeak in 2017.3 is also good,

and there is no difference about espeak between these versions.

By God,

were I given all the seven heavens

with all they contain

in order that

I may disobey God

by depriving an ant

from the husk of a grain of barley,

I would not do it.
