FW: [nvda-addons] Notice: later in 2018, Joseph Lee's add-ons will require NVDA release powered by wxPython 4

 

Hi,

 

The following is an important advisory for people using the listed add-ons below. I asked add-ons community to provide notices regarding their add-ons if they are impacted by wxPython 4 changes. Thanks.

Subject: [nvda-addons] Notice: later in 2018, Joseph Lee's add-ons will require NVDA release powered by wxPython 4

 

Hi everyone,

 

Due to internal changes to wxPython 4, some of my add-ons will require a future NVDA release powered by wxPython 4. Specifically, wxPython 4 drops wx.PyDeadObjectError in favor of raising RuntimeError.

 

The following add-ons (either I created or am maintaining) are affected:

 

  • Enhanced Touch Gestures
  • Golden Cursor
  • StationPlaylist Studio
  • Windows 10 App Essentials

 

All of these add-ons display add-on configuration dialogs and thus are impacted by wxPython 4 changes. The NVDA release requirement will go into effect 30 days after release of the NVDA stable release powered by wxPython 4 (e.g. if NVDA 2018.2 is powered by wxPython 4 and is released on May 31, 2018, the above requirement will go into effect starting with the add-on releases scheduled for June 30, 2018 or later).

 

Special note for StationPlaylist Studio add-on: the above requirement is for those NOT on LTS channel.

 

Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph

P.S. I encourage other add-on writers to post notices like this if your add-on(s) are impacted by wxPython 4 changes.

Greg,
Since this is your personal word document, you don't need to be formal.
Landmarks can look like something as simple as "Greg1", "Greg2", etc. Not
very suffisticated but it will serve.

Thanks guys. I have my document set up with headers. I'm looking for a way
that I can go to specific lines under each header. For example, when I
could see and was reading a textbook, I would underline the specific lines
or paragraphs I wanted to go back and review. When it came time to study
for a test, I could just review the things I had underlined. What's an
equivalent way to do that for a blind person. I would like to be able to
use single key navigation to go quickly through the specific items I want
to go back and review. If I did some kind of track change notation on each
item I wanted to review, I could use "a" for annotation and do it. Is
there a simpler way? Thanks for any suggestions.

I don't use Word nor do I know a lot about various word processor formatting options.  but, if this document is just for your use, you could do what I do to mark things.  I place something which isn't going to be found elsewhere in the document, such as an asterisk before something I want to be able to find.  You can then use the Word search and find next feature to find all such symbols moving through the document.

Yes I have been using it as my default browser ever since Firefox

which strips links and ads out - control alt and r.
There are only a couple of issues.
For me in some edit boxes I get a very verbose feedback with the whole
string being announced every time I type a character. This tends to be
some google edit boxes but not all of them for some reason.
The other main issue is that for some reason some sites like Amazon

Again this is not consistent. In these circumstances I simply copy the url

Re: location of NVDA log files

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Don,

%temp%\

Under that you should find:

nvda.log (the latest log - current if NVDA is running, the last log created if it isn't)
nvda-old.log (the second latest log).
nvda_crash.dmp (the latest crash dump if NVDA itself has crashed)

So the direct path to the current or latest log is:

%temp%\nvda.log

Kind regards

Quentin.
