Re: latest next version

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi everyone,

There's a new Next build which (hopefully) addresses those issues caused by the #5751 fix.  For those affected, please try the new version and do advise if you still have problems: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/snapshots/

Kind regards

Quentin.

I installed the latest next version of NVDA on my Win 10 laptop. 
Rebooted the computer to make sure things were set.  Then I went to the control panel and NVDA would not read any of the entries in the control panel.

having trouble entering registration key for MalwareBytes

Giles Turnbull
 

I decided I like Malware Bytes enough to pay for the premium version and I have received the email with my registration key. I can find the button that says Activate Licence, but it doesn't seem to want to react to any action on that button — not with Enter, Spacebar or object navigation.

Has anybody else successfully registered the Premium version and, if so, can you help me figure out what I'm doing wrong?

Of interest, in a different registration / setup screen, it says to enter the registration code or, if you received an ID then you need to check the relevant box and enter the ID ... I received a code in my email but there doesn't seem to be any text box in which to type or paste my registration key. Similarly the use of navigation using the e shortcut for an edit box doesn't work, and using object navigation doesn't reveal anywhere to enter the key.

Any ideas gratefully received :)

Giles

Hi


yep that is the add on i have it installed here on my computer and like
it. I just looked it up to see what it was called.

find the settings but the best part was you could search for the setting
you wanted and would narrow it down for you sorta like the gesture one.


But instead of it been shortcuts you could change it would be to turn
settings on and off with a check box.


When looking around in the settings i could not find a search box but
maybe a idea? to add in depending which way they go.

Re: can the user manual be downloaded to IOS?

Gene
 

In such cases doing a google search may find the item online.  In this case, searching for NVDA manual or NVDA user guide will find the entire guide online in one file.

Subject: [nvda] can the user manual be downloaded to IOS?

Hello,

I am a blind user with an iphone running IOS 11.3 and the VoiceOver screen reader. I would like to download a copy of the NVDA user manual to my iphone where I can then read (i.e. listen to) it using the VoiceDream Reader app. I find this a good way to read the user guide when I do not have my laptop with me. I also often access it on my iphone while I am using NVDA on my laptop.

Is it possible to download the current user guide to accomplish this? 

And yes, I do know that the user guide is part of NVDA itself and thus available on my laptop.

It causes several other problems:

- Windows titles are not announced when swithing thru them with alt+tab.

NVDA does not seem to be aware when you open a folder.

Suggestion for nvda

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

Now the portable and installed versions are getting dedicated downloaders that substantially work the same way, it would be nice to have a choice in both, to start the new version. At present this is only there in portable versions.
This delay seems to stop the issue of nvda restarting and falling over, at least on my machine. You just wait a few seconds and then OK and it always works, whereas installed version just jumping straight in can sometimes generate an invisible error and only esc and a restart of nvda can fix it. Minor but irritating.
