Ok, you were right, but, earlier on - maybe my browser, or router were caching a different version, it kept on just offering me the other version.

I thought Joseph said that for some reason you have to update this one manually by going to the add-ons site and downloading and installing it manually.

Re: Reading brf files from BARD with a Focus 40

Christopher Kchao
 

Hello,
That's awfully peculiar, and seemingly not indicative of a NVDA issue. Are you sure you're not looking at the cursor and perceiving the letters to be upper-case as a result? The cursor can be turned off.

CK

Re: Addon updater

 

Hi,
This is the reason why I told everyone yesterday that users should install Add-on Updater 19.02.1A manually.
Speaking of Add-on Updater: it looks like I need to push another mandatory update to this add-on next week. The current solution I wrote as part of 19.02.1A is a temporary one that isn't compatible with Python 3 version of NVDA. The upcoming 19.02.2 will make sure Add-on Updater is both backward and forward compatible.

Joseph

Re: Dropbox nag screens now appearing

Gene
 

It may be that at times, they haven't been interested but at other times, they have done good work, when presented with problems.  They made the desktop application considerably more accessible once some users complained about a newer version of the program being less accessible than an older one. 
 
A bug is not a design decision or oversight.  A bug is unanticipated problems.  If a program is designed without accessibility, it is a moral and ethical and legal problem as well as a human problem.  It isn't a bug.  If language is used improperly, it will muddy thinking and confuse issues.  It may make it harder to concentrate on what is important.

Re: bug with nvda selection

Gene
 

Also, refering to my last answer, in your discussion of science and good design, I don't know if you are responding to my comments.  This part of the thread is about how selection is done using the review keys as opposed to everywhere else in Windows and Windows programs.  Your answer seems to be aimed at a criticism of the survey itself.  That isn't what is being discussed here.

Re: bug with nvda selection

You don't need science to determine such questions.  its just simple consistency.  If selection is done differently everywhere else, the character you are on is the last character selected, it is bad design to have, in this one instance, the character to the right of your position selected.

Re: bug with nvda selection

Gene
 

I'm not attacking you on anything and I'm not saying your description
is wrong. I'm saying that anywhere else when you select text, browse
mode, the application cursor when in a word processor, etc. the
character to the right of your position is not selected. I'm saying
that it is bad design and a contradiction of the design philosophy of
NVDA that in this one instance, the character to the right of your
position is selected. Text selection should be consistent when using
the review movement keys as anywhere else.

I opened up my computer yesterday t9o be greeted by Pane.
I eventually managed to fiddle and find the desktop. On asking around the sighted world this morning I discovered that Dropbox latest version puts up a picture on every boot up showing a dog doing work, promoting the business Dropbox subscription. Its a cartoon apparently. However whatever ist is nvda/f1 says its a button not focussed and has an exception number.
Has anyone else not seen this?

I personally feel that if they want to advertise, then fine but at least make it obvious its them to a screenreader user.
Blimey.

This is the same as navigational sounds is it? Mozilla told me that due to the new interface it was not possible to do it on an add on.

Mine had to be forced to look but it found the latest version with a at the end. However I take on board the issue with the alpha snap. Also which version of add on updata should I install in an older version of nvda, not that old the previous main stable as at present the newer version does not work.

According to my app I'm running 19.02 can't see a 19.02.1 I'm using the
latest stable NVDA v2018.4.1. I just tried the check for addon updates and
it didn't say anything.

#AddonRelease



Hi everyone,

For users of Add-on Updater: if you are using NVDA alpha build 16682 and
later, there exists a bug in Add-on Updater that prevents you from
installing future add-on updates. I have pushed an update to this add-on,
but the thing is, you must apply the patch manually if you are indeed
running alpha snapshots (those running 2018.4.1 are not affected).



If you happen to be running alpha build 16682 and later, go to
addons.nvda-project.org, select Add-on Updater, and download stable version.
If the version you get is 19.02.1, you're good to go. For those using
2018.4.1 or an earlier alpha snapshot, I highly encourage you to update to
Add-on Updater 19.02.1 via Add-on Updater itself.



Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph
