Eduardo Fermiano Luccas

no, that wasn't a question, it was a discussion to hear the opinions of others...and i have the beta of NVDA 2021.3 since october, so i have no problem with that, this message is only for those who have the problem , and do not want to install now.

Hi Eduardo,

I think I lost something in translation, but are you asking if it is ok to NOT install the NVDA 2021.3 beta ?  If so, then that is absolutely fine - Your previous version of NVDA will let you know when the final version is out* and so will I here as you noted.  We haven't had any serious reports of issues with the beta, so don't anticipate anyone should have any problems, but if you are a bit nervous about installing software before the stable version, then waiting is perfectly ok.

*The one caveat to your existing version letting you know about the new version is the issue which I think most here are already across - that the way our recent security certificate upgrade was done did not propagate out to everyone and so there are some users who will receive an error when they try and check for updates.  For those users, you can either:

- Live with it until NVDA 2021.3 comes out and then download and install that manually
- Download the Beta from - run it (you don't have to install it) and from the help menu choose "check for updates" - that alone should fix it, you can then exit and go back to your old version.
- Download the add-on we put out in October.  I mentioned this in our In-Process blog at the time, which you can still find here: - The add-on does exactly the same thing as checking for updates from the beta (and from future versions of NVDA).

Kind regards
