I don’t need the link. Zarah can have it. I’m happy with the current version of NVDA. From what I did remember. My room mate did ask if I wanted 17.2 and 17.3 gone. I did say get rid of it thinking it wont work for win ten.

By God,

were I given all the seven heavens

with all they contain

in order that

I may disobey God

by depriving an ant
