locked Re: Windows 10 App Essentials 20.07 released, requires Windows 10 November 2019 Update or later #addonrelease


 

Hi,
Newer add-on releases do not support NVDA 2017.3. This has been the policy for years: unless needed, Windows 10 App Essentials supports current and immediate past stable versions of NVDA. As of this post, Windows 10 App Essentials 20.07 (the latest stable) supports NVDA 2019.3, 2020.1, 2020.2 beta and alpha snapshots. A version scheduled for fall will drop support for 2019.3 following the above policy, as NVDA 2020.2 would have been released to everyone then. The above policy also aligns with Windows as a Service concept to some extent - a given Windows 10 release has finite support lifetime.
Cheers,
Joseph

hi joseph.
what is your recommendation for me that i wish to use 2017.3?
do you recommend me that if i can access one system with windows ten, (version 1903), i only install 2017.3 version of nvda?
or install it with your addon version 17.09?
do newer versions of your addon beyond 17.09 support nvda 2017.3?

Hi,
Add-on 17.09 isn't optimized for newer Windows 10 releases such as
April
2018 Update. Although that add-on release will read various things on
Windows 10, it won't recognize certain things added in newer Windows
10 releases.
Cheers,
Joseph

hi joseph.
thanks so much for your support as always.
does 2017.3 reads windows ten settings, especially combo boxes and
radio buttons?
i asked because from the link which brian sent here, i studied all
changes for all versions of your addon and realized that you included
support for various windows ten settings in different versions of
windows ten app essential.
and, i realized that if i can find a system with windows ten, the last
version of your addon that i can use is addon version 17.09.

Hi,
To answer the second question, yes 2017.3 works with Windows 10. Note
that as far as the add-on is concerned, WinTenApps does not support
2017.3 To answer Peter's question (and to expand on Brian's answer):
Windows 10 App Essentials is an add-on that improves accessibility
and usability of controls found in Windows 10, along with improving
usability of some built-in apps such as Calculator, Microsoft Store
and others. The add-on sometimes serves as an extended beta testing
facility where features under consideration for inclusion in NVDA are
tested in public e.g. support for announcing hardware keyboard input
suggestions was first made available on the add-on, then included in
NVDA in late 2018.
Cheers,
Joseph
