The problem is that in old days the RC branch will update automatically to
the release versions and now the RC branch did not update automatically to

Hi Nicholas,

There was an issue at one point with snapshot builds not auto-updating, but
the regular version should do update checks. It won't necessarily check the
moment an update comes out so if you are already using it and see the
notification that the new version is released, it might be that you see that
email before NVDA notifies you.

Re control+right arrow only moving by letter, rather than by word - Which
program are you using (and which version)? And does it work anywhere else?
control+right arrow / control+left arrow are fairly standard keys and should
work in most places you can type text.

Kind regards

Hi Heaven,
I fully agree with you. Only thing I notice with any updates is that it
never tells me there are updates. If I don't check for updates, I don't
I did notice a problem with the previous version. When I pressed control
plus right arrow when working in a document it only read letter for letter
and not word by word. Is there a way to solve that?

I recently upgraded to NVDA 2016.3. I would like to say thank you to all
the developers who work on this project. I have not found any bugs as yet
and some wonderful improvements.

Keep up the good work.

Kind regards

I downloaded this yesterday and associated draft not being spoken in outlook
2016 is much welcomed. It drove me crazy. I just want to say that from a
JFW user's perspective, you guys are almost there in converting me to a full
NVDA user. I'm finding now that especially for tabular information, NVDA
works much better for me and I think my husband may be tempted to use it
himself. He just has the little issue of Station Playlist Studio and
Station Playlist Streamer which will be the things that hold him back I

You guys rock!!!!!! As for testers, I'd be very pleased to help with any
testing necessary. I'm probably not as geeky as some testers on this list
but as someone who is an extremely advanced computer user and uses their
computer for working from home and for leisure purposes it's in my best
interests to ensure that screenreader accessibility is not just limited to
those that can afford the expensive stuff. I'm also very very excited to
see what happens in November. Cheap braille? Mouthwatering! Something I've
longed for for a long time and given I can't get any support from Access To
Work because my turnover isn't what they consider to be worthy, it looks
like I'm saving for a braille display.

Dear citizens of the NVDA land:

Yes, it is official: one of the ministers of NVDA land, a certain Mr. Teh,
has just ordered the horsemen to announce a good news throughout the land:

NVDA 2016.3 is officially out:

So what's new, changed and fixed:

From RC2: no changes.


You can now disable individual add-ons.

NVDA is more cofmpatible with Windows 10 Anniversary Update
(version 1607). Among the things included are return of browse mode in Edge,
announcing newer UAC prompts, ability to navigate PDF documents in Edge and

NVDA+F9/NVDA+F10 command behavior change is now official.

Color announcement has been simplified.

NVDA no longer announces "associated draft" in Outlook 2016.

NVDA can now announce line spacing in Microsoft Word.

Various enhancements.

A sneak preview at 2016.4: three game-changing features will be served as
part of Thanksgiving Party this November:

Ever wanted to hear line indentation via beeps? You can do that
starting in November.

Want to experience the next chapter in assistive technology
history? Or would you like to be one of the first ones to experience a
combination of a free screen reader and a low-cost braille display? Stay
tuned, as this combination will change your life in November.

Needed an assistant in persuading web or app developers about
accessibility needs of screen reader users? The wait is almost over: let
NVDA volunteer for you from November onwards.

The rest: let's just say the ministers at NVDA land are holding council
every day, looking over this land and thinking about the needs of citizens
and planning the next great adventure for the people of this land.

Personally, I'm excited to see what NVDA can do in opening opportunities for
many people, particularly for those who're using Windows 10. On behalf of
people who've contributed to NVDA 2016.3 development, I wish you best in
your endeavor as you use NVDA 2016.3 in various places (work, school, for
fun and in unexpected places). Also, NVDA 2016.3 release announcement will
be my final NVDA release announcement (on this list), as I believe the
community is ready to welcome new reporters.
