Yes but you need to do that on github.
In any case Joseph says they are aware of it and in any case I pointed it out in the dev list earlier today as well, so I'll wait and see, but as my previous message says, the file is downloaded and is in the temp folder you just need to run it. the only fault is that the bit that runs it did not work that was all.

Hi,
Sorry if I'm wrong!

I thought the "next" versions would serve for users to run tests and
send bugs to the developers!

"You should NOT use snapshots unless it is necessary."

When should I use snapshots?
Who should use the snapshots?
Which version of NVDA should I use?
Excuse me, but sometimes I get a little confused by all these things!

Hi,

The issue has to do with coding mistakes, which should be fixed now.
For this and other reasons, you should NOT use snapshots unless it is

The web page explains the different categories of downloads. 
Which ones you download, if any, depends on what kind of user you are.

I always use the snaps to get access to earlier features and hav e bleeding edge code. They are very reliable and, well, snappy. So to say never use snapshots unless  you have to is kind of a no no in my book. I'm not a dev but I love to have the latest and grates, as far as nvda anyway.

Hi, speaking of slow! I tried to upload the zipped files onto open drive.  But it did not go through.  I left the computer and went to do something else. When I came back. It still was 55 minutes to upload. Now it’s on open drive and I sent the list the link. If anybody wants it.

If it was, then that would be very uncommon.  It may be that, just having been announced, a lot of people, far more than usual, tried to download the file at the same time.  But I'm skeptical because we heard no reports from others and if there were such an issue, we would expect to see people talking about how slow the download is or that they couldn't do so.  Therefore, I'm very skeptical.

Re: It is accomplished: Welcome to NVDA 2018 is now COMPLETE!

Roger Stewart
 

Thanks very much for this tutorial!  I just got it and will put it on my Victor Stream for listening. 

I don't know what all the fuss about download speed was about, but I downloaded it in 2 and a half minutes and I don't think that is very long at all!

I appreciate all the effort you have put into NVDA over the past few years.

Dear global NVDA community,

 

It is done! I’m delighted to announce the immediate release of the long-awaited update to a popular series of free tutorials for NVDA users: Welcome to NVDA, now in its third edition. Based on NVDA 2018.1 with some features from 2017.4, this tutorial set will take you on a cruise around NVDA world, including installation, concepts, usage, commands, configuration, tools, add-ons and beyond.

 

The complete package (as a zip file) with introduction and what’s new, the main tutorial series, and two addenda can be found at:

http://www.josephsl.net/files/nvda18/Welcome%20to%20NVDA%202018%20Audio%20Tutorial.zip

 

The changes made between 2015 and 2018 editions are too numerous to list, but the highlights include use of a completely new speech synthesizer, web browsing using Microsoft Edge and Mozilla Firefox, new settings and concepts, and so many changes to add-ons and other topics. It’ll take pages to talk about changes between 2013 and 2018 editions, as there are so many to list.

 

Copyright notices: NVDA (NonVisual Desktop Access) is copyright 2006-2018 by NV Access Limited, released under GPL 2.

Other products mentioned in the tutorial set are copyrighted by makers of these products. Welcome to NVDA tutorial set is copyright 2013-2018 Joseph Lee, with permissive license for free distribution and sharing.

 

One major announcement: this will be my last grand scale tutorial project for the NVDA community. We have better tutorials now, including the official NVDA Basic Training module from NV Access. If anyone wants to produce the fourth edition of Welcome to NVDA (perhaps in 2020), you have my blessing. All I ask of you is that you do it not for fame or glory, but because you love this community.

 

Also, regarding payments for my work: the Welcome to NVDA series is, was, and should remain free in consideration for many people who do not have financial security to pay for assistance or product tutorials. If you insist on paying me for this tutorial, I’d rather ask you to donate to NV Access instead so NVDA screen reader development can continue. If you still insist on paying me (apart from offering me a scholarship at Cal State LA; joking), I’d still ask you to donate to NV Access, or if you want, a worthy project that improves lives in the long run.

 

Other final matters:

 

  • Text transcriptions are always welcome.
  • Translations are more than welcome.
  • Converting this into other formats is welcome (including DAISY).
  • I hereby give you permission to quote my tutorial for different purposes (writing essays, as part of a research paper, websites, mainstream media and what not). All I ask is a small citation.

 

Final remarks: I’d like to thank you all for your support for the last six weeks. All of you are a part of this effort.

 

Enjoy (and share) the tutorial set, and once again, welcome to NVDA 2018!

Cheers,

Joseph

A faster site isn't needed.  People simply have to not expect everything instantly in this childish instant gratification of everything culture.  It took me about eighteen minutes to download the material.  Tragic that it took so long.  So I did other things while the download occurred.

I have always liked using the next snapshots when I could. I could
never keep up with the link to the master.

Subject: [nvda] It is accomplished: Welcome to NVDA 2018 is now COMPLETE!

Dear global NVDA community,



It is done! I'm delighted to announce the immediate release of the
long-awaited update to a popular series of free tutorials for NVDA users:
Welcome to NVDA, now in its third edition. Based on NVDA 2018.1 with some
features from 2017.4, this tutorial set will take you on a cruise around
NVDA world, including installation, concepts, usage, commands,
configuration, tools, add-ons and beyond.



The complete package (as a zip file) with introduction and what's new, the
main tutorial series, and two addenda can be found at:

http://www.josephsl.net/files/nvda18/Welcome%20to%20NVDA%202018%20Audio%20Tu
torial.zip



The changes made between 2015 and 2018 editions are too numerous to list,
but the highlights include use of a completely new speech synthesizer, web
browsing using Microsoft Edge and Mozilla Firefox, new settings and
concepts, and so many changes to add-ons and other topics. It'll take pages
to talk about changes between 2013 and 2018 editions, as there are so many
to list.

Welcome to NVDA tutorial set is copyright 2013-2018 Joseph Lee, with
permissive license for free distribution and sharing.



One major announcement: this will be my last grand scale tutorial project
for the NVDA community. We have better tutorials now, including the official
NVDA Basic Training module from NV Access. If anyone wants to produce the
fourth edition of Welcome to NVDA (perhaps in 2020), you have my blessing.
All I ask of you is that you do it not for fame or glory, but because you
love this community.



Also, regarding payments for my work: the Welcome to NVDA series is, was,
and should remain free in consideration for many people who do not have
financial security to pay for assistance or product tutorials. If you insist
on paying me for this tutorial, I'd rather ask you to donate to NV Access
instead so NVDA screen reader development can continue. If you still insist
on paying me (apart from offering me a scholarship at Cal State LA; joking),
I'd still ask you to donate to NV Access, or if you want, a worthy project
that improves lives in the long run.



Other final matters:



* Text transcriptions are always welcome.
* Translations are more than welcome.
* Converting this into other formats is welcome (including DAISY).
* I hereby give you permission to quote my tutorial for different
purposes (writing essays, as part of a research paper, websites, mainstream
media and what not). All I ask is a small citation.



Final remarks: I'd like to thank you all for your support for the last six
weeks. All of you are a part of this effort.



Enjoy (and share) the tutorial set, and once again, welcome to NVDA 2018!

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: NVDA And The Password

Respected friend, as I already said that I’m having this issue in logon screen and Skype classic’s password edit.

I want both of the screen says as star as JAWS is saying and narrator is saying hidden!

In what context does this occur. Obviously, nvda responds to what the

application is doing to control this. If you have echo keys as they are

typed on on some dodgy web sites I've noticed it saying p star a star etc,

when the keyboard repeat should be off. I have not seen this on good

software or web sites. s. Some web sites allow you to toggle speaking of

passwords on and off of course, and there is I think an nvda add on that

allows you to hear passwords.After all if you are alone and want to make

sure you typed it correctly, why not? Thus I think in order to answer your

question we would need to know the specific case when its happening and you

think it should not so others can test it.

Respected friends, sometimes NVDA speaks the password which I type instead

off the star.

Please let me know how can I prevent it by speaking the actual character of

my password!

I sincerely hope that my email will be answered as earliest!

I downloaded it right from the email by hitting the context key, then the letter K, then alt S. The zip file downloaded right to my desktop.

I just tried to download the 2018 tutorial on both my external hard drive and my music folder but I couldn't get it to download. I even tried c:\downloads\nvda 2018 tutorial.zip but that didn't work either. What could I be missing here?
Thanks for your help in advance.

P.S. I tried to save it to my downloads folder but that didn't work either.

Gene, using Internet Explorer, it took me a few tries but I got it downloaded.  On the first few tries, there was no error message, just silence.

If it was, then that would be very uncommon.  It may be that, just having been announced, a lot of people, far more than usual, tried to download the file at the same time.  But I'm skeptical because we heard no reports from others and if there were such an issue, we would expect to see people talking about how slow the download is or that they couldn't do so.  Therefore, I'm very skeptical.
