I believe there was a problem with notepad++ latest version, that prevented it from working with 2019.1.1. If you use NVDA beta, the fix should be in.

There is a huge formula in a cell.
I want to delete part of the formula by selecting and deleting part of that formula.
NVDA does not read while I am selecting the characters and words of this formula.
Can some one guide on this?
This is currently on office computer. Have to check what happens on the home computer.

Hi.  You can download Python from www.python.org as it comes with a python interactive shell.  Download and install the latest package making sure it is Python3.  Support for Python 2 will be dropped next year.  During installation, make sure you choose to have Python on your environment's path.  After installation, go to CMD, then type the following:


Python --version and you should get the following output if installation is done correctly

Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.17763.557]
(c) 2018 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\Users\jaffar>py -3
Python 3.7.3 (v3.7.3:ef4ec6ed12, Mar 25 2019, 22:22:05) [MSC v.1916 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>>


now you can output your first python program


print ("Hello Python")


output:


Hello Python!


Cheers!

If the discussion were about how to code in Python, what the structure of a JSON file is, or similar, that would be off-topic but would also be perfectly appropriate for the chat subgroup.

I hope that some of our members that are also Python coders will have some suggestions for you.

Use the nvda key + letter U to toggle it to the one you want. for example beep, speak and beep , speak or none.

Also, at this point in time, there is nearly dead Edge, which isn't worth dedicating any effort on, and being born Chromium-based Edge, which is handled quite well by screen readers, as it is built on the same foundation as the Google Chrome web browser.

If you're interested in Edge, then you are better off using the development version, which will likely go to production in the second feature update of 2019, or use Chrome instead for the time being, as it's so similar.

If you want the direct download link for the Development (Dev) channel Chromium-based Edge, this is it:

That link takes you directly to download, as I've already consented to license terms before copying it.  If you activate this you should immediately have a Save dialog presented for the Dev Edge installer.

On Edge and Firefox I have to let it read the entire page and cannot stop it or go back to anything else it won’t read anything else.

On IE I can at least read things if I stop it reading, but it’s still not 100%

Re: strange thing in Nvda

Gene
 

This is a good opportunity to remind people who don't do so, that when presenting a problem, what is being used and what is done that causes the problem should be reported. 
 
I doubt you can do anything about this.  At times, information is sent to NvdA that it reads automatically and this speech isn't related to progress updates.  Even if they are off, the information is spoken.  In this case, as I recall, if you leave the window, you won't hear it.  So just don't stay in the window when you don't want to hear the status of the download. 
 
This appears to be a problem introduced into quantum Firefox.  I don't recall it existing before quantum.
