Entering Substitutes For ASCII Type Characters In Speech Dictionary Causes NVDA To Lock UP

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Group,


On one list I am subscribed to, an individual using a foreign font or character set has a back slash in his address field.  With NVDA it reads \.  I looked up this expression and found it was a back slash symbol.  When I tried entering this expression into the NVDA speech dictionary and substituting back slash for the proper pronunciation, NVDA locked up.  I had to run Narrator and remove the item from speech dictionary to restore NVDA to usage.


Has anyone else noticed this issue and if so, is there a solution?  Thanks in advance.

Re: using WhatsApp with latest version of NVDA

Angela Delicata
 

How I wish it would be done: please, think of it.

WhatsApp Web is not so accessible, though it can be used, but the hardest thing is to focus on the code to be scanned.

Thank you.

God bless you all devs of NVDA.

Hi NVDA community,



The following is considered important due to massive impact it'll have:



For those following the GitHub issue:

https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/7104



wxPython 4 came out in February 2018 (subsequently updated to 4.0.1 a few
days later). As this is a necessary milestone on our preparation to move to
Python 3, wxPython 4 watchers (including NV Access, I, Leonard de Ruijter
and others) felt it would be good to let the community test wxPython 4
integration for a while. As the chief investigator for wxPython 4 migration,
I'm happy to announce that, as of today, NVDA next branch snapshots will
include wxPython 4. However, this means it'll have issues, the biggest one
being outdated add-ons (unfortunately, NVDA Remote Support add-on is one of
those add-ons that won't work under wxPython 4 due to calls to deprecated
methods). If you run into other issues or bugs, please let me and other
develoeprs know ASAP via GitHUb or email.



notes for community:



* For NVDA Core developers: if you are working on any sort of GUI
work, please test wxPython 4 migration via a private branch or two. This is
especially the case for me and Leonard as we are both working on GUI edits
(Leonard's work on multi-page settings dialog and my work on add-on update
client interface).
* For add-on writers: please update your add-ons as soon as possible.
When updating your add-ons, please try using code paths that'll work on both
wxPython 3 (Classic) and wxPython 4 (Phoenix) to maximize compatibility).
* For users: as noted above, please report any bugs with wxPython 4
integration via GitHub or email as soon as you run across them.
* For Python 3 researchers: I advise pausing our research for a little
while until wxPython 4 lands on NVDA master snapshots.



Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph

Is there perhaps a particular issue for these that people can use to report any issues? If not I can see it all getting very fragmented. Not that I've tried it yet, but I do have next on here on windows 7 and have not yet seen your latest update. Its only a portable version so I use Master for normal use.

Subject: [nvda] IMPORTANT COMMUNITY ADVISORY: NVDA next snapshots will include wxPython 4.0.1


Hi NVDA community,



The following is considered important due to massive impact it'll have:



For those following the GitHub issue:

https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/7104



wxPython 4 came out in February 2018 (subsequently updated to 4.0.1 a few
days later). As this is a necessary milestone on our preparation to move to
Python 3, wxPython 4 watchers (including NV Access, I, Leonard de Ruijter
and others) felt it would be good to let the community test wxPython 4
integration for a while. As the chief investigator for wxPython 4 migration,
I'm happy to announce that, as of today, NVDA next branch snapshots will
include wxPython 4. However, this means it'll have issues, the biggest one
being outdated add-ons (unfortunately, NVDA Remote Support add-on is one of
those add-ons that won't work under wxPython 4 due to calls to deprecated
methods). If you run into other issues or bugs, please let me and other
develoeprs know ASAP via GitHUb or email.



notes for community:



* For NVDA Core developers: if you are working on any sort of GUI
work, please test wxPython 4 migration via a private branch or two. This is
especially the case for me and Leonard as we are both working on GUI edits
(Leonard's work on multi-page settings dialog and my work on add-on update
client interface).
* For add-on writers: please update your add-ons as soon as possible.
When updating your add-ons, please try using code paths that'll work on both
wxPython 3 (Classic) and wxPython 4 (Phoenix) to maximize compatibility).
* For users: as noted above, please report any bugs with wxPython 4
integration via GitHub or email as soon as you run across them.
* For Python 3 researchers: I advise pausing our research for a little
while until wxPython 4 lands on NVDA master snapshots.



Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph

I'm assuming this is not the checkbox issue mentioned earlier in this list for another lag issue?
As I said at the time the only place I see this is in the alexa app on the pc in firefosx.

Hi, everyone,


I'm trying thunderbird and when I type messages, NVDA lags. I'm not typing fast either so why is this happening?


Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi,
