Are you thinking of WINDOWS+A for the Action center?

 

WINDOWS+V shows your clipboard history (apparently, I am learning this as you are), although evidently you need to enable that feature if you want it.

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.

NVDA Python 3 Edition (Pylennium): December 17, 2018 source code package now availible for testing

 

Dear NVDA community,

 

First, congratulations to NV Access for the release of 2018.4 stable version.

 

I’m delighted to announce the next milestone release of NVDA’s road to Python 3 (Project Pylennium): 2019.1devPy3Ver1812 (December 17, 2018)! This source code only release introduces latest changes from NVDA’s master branch (alpha releases), as well as bringing substantial progress in Python 3 research work.

 

For my friends who may not know what I just said: currently some in the NvDA community are working on making NVDA run under Python 3. Started in 2017 under the codename of “Pylennium” (Python and millennium), this project’s aim is to research what Python 3 NvDA would look like, as well as providing guidance for those wishing to port NVDA to Python 3 in the future.

 

Until July 2018, it wasn’t possible to run NVDA under Python 3, or for that matter, get it to do something meaningful. This changed in July 2018 when wxPython 4 and six modules were introduced, making it possible for I and other community researchers to dig deeper into python 3 research, as well as provide documentation and pull requests for various issues discovered in NVDA’s journey toward Python 3. Our work has resulted in some of our Python 3 preparation pull requests being included in NVDA 2018.4, and in September, the first usable version of Python 3 NVDA was released in source code form.

 

The relevant discussion on GitHub can be found at:

https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/7105

 

Highlights of Python 3 work include:

 

  • Serving more people in more languages: In Python 3, Unicode becomes the medium of communication in text. This means NVDA can serve more diverse populations speaking all sorts of languages.
  • Performance changes: over the years, the python community has included various optimizations to make Python 3 run better, safer, and faster. NvDA will take advantage of some of them in Python 3.7.
  • Some exciting features for developers: these include ability to work with Windows 8.1 and 10 features from source code, asynchronous methods and more.

 

Few important things to keep in mind:

 

  1. This package is NOT ready for users wanting stability yet!
  2. This package won’t compile into binary form because there are several crucial dependencies that we need (py2exe can’t be used).
  3. This package is meant for developers who would like to give Python 3 NvDA a test drive and report issues on GitHub, mostly having to do with Python 3 transition preparation work.
  4. If you are a person (or a team) writing NVDA add-ons, you are more than welcome to use this version to test add-ons and learn what you can do (and need to do) to make your add-ons compatible with Python 3.

 

If you read the above warnings and say to yourself, “I want to help and test drive this package”, you need to install:

 

  1. Python 3.7 32-bit.
  2. With python 3.7 installed, install pywin32 and six via pip.

 

Note: you can test this package in Windows 7 SP1 or later, but I strongly recommend using Windows 10 (slightly relaxed from September release).

 

Changes from September 2018 release:

 

  • eSpeak NG has been ported and is working (yay!). Note that not all features are working at this stage – more work is required. In particular, since some crucial eSpeak structures (such as espeak_VOICE) include char* members and Python 3 wants to use Unicode, conversion to and from bytes has been implemented in today’s source code package. With this change, the strict requirement on using Windows 10 has been lifted, although I still recommend testing this package with Windows 10.
  • In synth settings ring, NVDA will no longer play error tones when trying to change voice and/or variant. This was caused by the fact that synth driver class wants a list of voices, but the way it was defined was interpreted by Python 3 as dictionary value iteration (the original code used dict.values()).
  • The maximum Unicode points has been increased to the value specified by Python 3 (0x10FFFF). This was possible thanks to the fact that latest liblouis can be built with UCS4, which greatly simplifies Unicode handling in some cases.
  • Add-ons will be loaded. This is done by removing the path.encode/decode method in add-on handler. This will mean add-on authors can now test their add-ons for Python 3 compatibility.

 

Known issues in this package:

 

  • Not all speech synthesizers and braille displays will work.
  • Unicode Consortium (CLDR) setting (introduced in 2018.4) won’t be honored. This means eSpeak won’t be able to announce emoji characters, but OneCore voices will.

 

Next steps: I’m taking a Christmas break, and hopefully in 2019, I hope to receive assistance on porting SAPI4/SAPI5 drivers to Python 3 from the community, along with encouraging you all (at least developers) to start filing issues and assisting researchers with pull requests and documenting Python 3 issues and workarounds. That way, we can lessen the burden on NV Access people when it comes to the eventual Python 3 transition declaration. Most importantly, I and other Python 3 researchers would like to receive community input on binary packagers that is Python 3 compatible and would help us package Python 3 NVDA into binary form and also convert t2t files to HTML (or perhaps convert things to Markdown). Also, it would be helpful if we can get in contact with maintainers of other Python packages and seek their assistance and expertise in helping the NVDA screen reader project have a smooth time transitioning to Python 3.

 

And now, the link to the package:

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi Marcio


if you are running the alfa version as a installed version it will stay on the alfa version for updates.



The way a few of us do it is they might keep the stable version as the main installer version.


If they want to test out either the alfa version or beta version then they would make up a directory on the c: drive and either name it alfa version of nvda or beta version of nvda or along those lines.


They would then download either the alfa version or beta version and then make a portable copy inside of either directory and have the files put into it.


Then they would make a shortcut from the desktop either to the alfa version or the beta version to the nvda.exe file and also asign a shortcut to start that copy.


I have a alfa version plus the beta version plus the stable version on this computer.


so when you go to start it lets say for the alfa version the hot key could be alt + ctrl + the letter A.


So when you say look at my c: drive i would have c:\ nvda alfa

c:\ nvda beta

programfiles x86 nvda which is the stable version.


Hope you get what i mean.

You can download the update from https://www.nvaccess.org/download - when you install it, the installer will automatically install over your existing installed version.

The Beta channel automatically updates to the RC channel.
The RC channel automatically updates to the next stable release.

The alpha channel stays on the alpha channel.  If you would like to change from alpha to stable, you will need to download manually.

So anyone who downloaded either the beta or RC releases should be prompted to update to NVDA 2018.4 stable, but you can also download it manually and install.

Note that NVDA only checks once every 24 hours or so; for those following us on social media or in the groups here, you often find out before NVDA has checked.  You can either download or check for updates manually, or wait and it will do it within a day or so.

If you have the alpha channel installed, then you will receive the next alpha build, which is different to the stable build.  For instance, for the last couple of weeks, new code which was added (fixes for issues, updates and new features) has gone into alpha, but (with a couple of exceptions) was never going to be included in 2018.4.  Those updates will hopefully be in 2019.1.  Aside from anything else, we have a code freeze a few weeks before a new release in order to give our wonderful team of translators time to update their work without fear of new features (and possibly new text to translate) being added at the last minute.

So Alpha and stable are quite different channels.  We encourage everyone to have a copy of the latest stable build, 2018.4 - whether you have it installed and use a portable copy of the Alpha build, or the other way around, is up to you.  If you do install one build over the top of another, it will keep your settings and add-ons etc, so it should be fairly easy and painless to change channels if you desire.

Re: Last NVDA: How do I update it?

 

Hi Quentin.
No more doubts at all. Thanks for the help :)

If you have the alpha channel installed, then you will receive the next alpha build, which is different to the stable build.  For instance, for the last couple of weeks, new code which was added (fixes for issues, updates and new features) has gone into alpha, but (with a couple of exceptions) was never going to be included in 2018.4.  Those updates will hopefully be in 2019.1.  Aside from anything else, we have a code freeze a few weeks before a new release in order to give our wonderful team of translators time to update their work without fear of new features (and possibly new text to translate) being added at the last minute.

So Alpha and stable are quite different channels.  We encourage everyone to have a copy of the latest stable build, 2018.4 - whether you have it installed and use a portable copy of the Alpha build, or the other way around, is up to you.  If you do install one build over the top of another, it will keep your settings and add-ons etc, so it should be fairly easy and painless to change channels if you desire.

Hi Hurrikennyandopo,
Thanks for your explanation, it was very clear.
But the question is: people of the NVDA Alpha channel receive updates from the Stable or there's a chance of having something on the stable and not on the alpha?

Hi Marcio


if you are running the alfa version as a installed version it will stay on the alfa version for updates.



The way a few of us do it is they might keep the stable version as the main installer version.


If they want to test out either the alfa version or beta version then they would make up a directory on the c: drive and either name it alfa version of nvda or beta version of nvda or along those lines.


They would then download either the alfa version or beta version and then make a portable copy inside of either directory and have the files put into it.


Then they would make a shortcut from the desktop either to the alfa version or the beta version to the nvda.exe file and also asign a shortcut to start that copy.


I have a alfa version plus the beta version plus the stable version on this computer.


so when you go to start it lets say for the alfa version the hot key could be alt + ctrl + the letter A.


So when you say look at my c: drive i would have c:\ nvda alfa

c:\ nvda beta

programfiles x86 nvda which is the stable version.


Hope you get what i mean.

Hi Quentin,
First, thanks for your answer.
Just to see if I got it right: If I download this version, I'll automatically lose the Alpha channel?
If so, how I can stay up to date about news on the NVDA stable without losing it?
I mean, staying in the Alpha channel I won't receive news from the stable version, or will I?
Maybe it's a stupid question but I still am confused about these channels.

Hi Marcio,

You can download the update from https://www.nvaccess.org/download - when you install it, the installer will automatically install over your existing installed version.

The Beta channel automatically updates to the RC channel.
The RC channel automatically updates to the next stable release.

The alpha channel stays on the alpha channel.  If you would like to change from alpha to stable, you will need to download manually.

So anyone who downloaded either the beta or RC releases should be prompted to update to NVDA 2018.4 stable, but you can also download it manually and install.

Note that NVDA only checks once every 24 hours or so; for those following us on social media or in the groups here, you often find out before NVDA has checked.  You can either download or check for updates manually, or wait and it will do it within a day or so.

  1. Browse to the exe in question
  2. Right click or hit shift f10 or hit your applications key
  3. Click send to
  4. Click desktop
  5. Go to the desktop and copy or cut the shortcut to the clip board.
  6. Go to c:\windows\system32 and paste the shortcut there.
  7. Rename the shortcut to something like nvda or nvdaa or what not.

That's it.

I have shortcuts to my networked computers, folders on my drive etc. I can't remember when I started doingnthis, aybe 10 years ago, but I love it.

NVDA 2018.4 and Joseph Lee's add-ons: all compatible, some will require this NVDA release in January 2019 and later

 

Hi everyone,

 

Starting from this release, I’ll send out a quarterly announcement about compatibility of my add-ons with upcoming NVDA releases. The notices will be sent sometime between beta 1 and stable release of the upcoming version, typically just before release candidate phase. The notices will include one or more of the following:

 

  • Status of currently released add-ons and their compatibility with upcoming NVDA releases.
  • Add-ons that will require the upcoming versions in the future, if any.
  • Things to note when using the upcoming NVDA version with various add-ons.

 

As of NVDA 2018.4:

 

  • All add-ons are compatible.
  • Several add-ons will require 2018.4 starting in January 2019 or later (see below for specifics).

 

Add-ons requiring NVDA 2018.4 or later: the following add-on releases planned for January 2019 or later will require 2018.4 in order to take advantage of the following changes:

 

  • Checkable list: some add-on options will use checkable list implementation that ships with NVDA.
  • Some add-ons will use six compatibility module for Python 2 and 3 readiness.

 

Affected add-ons and versions:

 

  • Add-on Updater: version 19.01 or later
  • StationPlaylist Studio: version 19.01/18.09.6-LTS or later

 

Other things to note:

 

  • Add-on updates: from January 2019 onwards, StationPlaylist and Windows 10 App Essentials add-ons will disable add-on update feature that ships with these add-ons (to be removed in February). This means all future add-on updates must be done via Add-on Updater. A reminder message will show up at startup (only once) when you install version 19.01 of these add-ons.
  • Python 3 transition for my add-ons is almost complete. I’ll let you know when the transition is actually complete (likely no later than February 2019).

 

Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph

You couls also pot shurtcuts in system32 and run them via the run dialogue. xmaple

nvda
then
nvdaa

I'm not one for keyboardshortcuts so prefer it this way.

Hi Marcio


if you are running the alfa version as a installed version it will stay on the alfa version for updates.



The way a few of us do it is they might keep the stable version as the main installer version.


If they want to test out either the alfa version or beta version then they would make up a directory on the c: drive and either name it alfa version of nvda or beta version of nvda or along those lines.


They would then download either the alfa version or beta version and then make a portable copy inside of either directory and have the files put into it.


Then they would make a shortcut from the desktop either to the alfa version or the beta version to the nvda.exe file and also asign a shortcut to start that copy.


I have a alfa version plus the beta version plus the stable version on this computer.


so when you go to start it lets say for the alfa version the hot key could be alt + ctrl + the letter A.


So when you say look at my c: drive i would have c:\ nvda alfa

c:\ nvda beta

programfiles x86 nvda which is the stable version.


Hope you get what i mean.

Hi Quentin,
First, thanks for your answer.
Just to see if I got it right: If I download this version, I'll automatically lose the Alpha channel?
If so, how I can stay up to date about news on the NVDA stable without losing it?
I mean, staying in the Alpha channel I won't receive news from the stable version, or will I?
Maybe it's a stupid question but I still am confused about these channels.

Hi Marcio,

You can download the update from https://www.nvaccess.org/download - when you install it, the installer will automatically install over your existing installed version.

The Beta channel automatically updates to the RC channel.
The RC channel automatically updates to the next stable release.

The alpha channel stays on the alpha channel.  If you would like to change from alpha to stable, you will need to download manually.

So anyone who downloaded either the beta or RC releases should be prompted to update to NVDA 2018.4 stable, but you can also download it manually and install.

Note that NVDA only checks once every 24 hours or so; for those following us on social media or in the groups here, you often find out before NVDA has checked.  You can either download or check for updates manually, or wait and it will do it within a day or so.

Regards

Quentin.

The thing is: when I was going to check for updates it shows me nothing.
Anyone knows what can be happening and how to fix it?

Re: Last NVDA: How do I update it?

 

Hi Hurrikennyandopo,
Thanks for your explanation, it was very clear.
But the question is: people of the NVDA Alpha channel receive updates from the Stable or there's a chance of having something on the stable and not on the alpha?
