For the benefit of anyone using an English (British) Keyboard layout, the Euro (€) can also be generated by holding down the right hand Alt key (Labelled “Alt Gr”) and pressing the number 4 on the top row.

This must be on a European keyboard that has the ALT-Gr key at the right side, as on my US keyboard ALT+E, regardless whether using the left or right ALT key, gets me the Edit menu in most programs, but never types the Euro symbol.

For those who do not have a numeric keypad on their keyboards I'd suggest using the Windows built-in program Character Map.  You can use the search for field to search for a symbol by name.  Searching for Euro sign brings up only two characters, the Euro currency sign (which is not the Euro sign) and the Euro sign, which is named exactly that.  I haven't figured out whether there is a way to get the status line at the bottom to read the actual ALT plus digits key sequence one can use, but it does display.  Someone else may know that.  You can, however, select the character and copy it for pasting out of character map.  I often find myself doing just this for the degree symbol, as I never seem to recall the ALT plus digits shortcut for it and that character is not on my keyboard.

Re: euro symbol

The keystroke  right-hand-side Alt plus letter E does not work with standard
qwerty keyboard layout, but it works for instance with the German qwertz
keyboard layout.
To my knoledge, the procedure with 'hold Alt and press 0128 on the
numpad' is the only universal procedure on Windows.
If you don't have a physical numpad, then usually pressing the Fn key
allows you to turn your laptop keyboard layout into a numpad, where
letter j corresponds to numpad 1, letter k to numpad 2, letter l to
numpad 3, letter u to numpad 4, letter i to numpad 5, letter o to numpad
6, number 7 to numpad 7, number 8 to numpad 8, number 9 to numpad 9, and
letter m to numpad 0.
Another alternative should be to use the international US keyboard
layout. But there I don"t know any details myself.
Best regards and a happy new year, Marti

Hi,

On the Spanish community, a member reported that the add-on did not
correctly report the remaining days for leap years.

When pressing NVDA+F12 thrice on January 3rd, 2020, the addon said "362
days remaining" while, as 2020 is a leap year, it should say "363".

Ivan proposed a PR which I have just merged.

Since I don't have access to the addonfiles repo on github/nvdaadons, I
could not update the development channel for this add-on.

So don't use addonUpdater to do this update, nor the download link
provided on the add-on page on our community website.

Thanks Ivan and Spanish community.

The corrected add-on can be downloaded here:

http://cyber25.free.fr/nvda-addons/clock-20.01-dev.nvda-addon

It will remain in development version for a short time, just long enough
to check if other bugs have been detected.

Kind regards,
Abdel.

Switch to the classic view in Thunderbird.
After updating it to the latest version, just restart it, it should be fixed itself.

I'm using Thunderbird 68.3.1 (64 bit) and it works fine with NVDA.

Please, can be NVDA updated to do that?
Not necessary.

Marco,

1. What version of NVDA are you using to access Thunderbird?

2. What version of Thunderbird are you using?

3. When you mention the tree view are you referring to the list of
folders, such as inbox, drafts, etc.


Have you tried the following?

1. Close Thunderbird.

2. Quit NVDA.

3. Restart NVDA.

4. Restart Thunderbird.

Re: Can't update Vocalizer with NVDA's latest?

Gene
 

Anyone who wants it on can  turn it on but it shouldn't be the default.  Most programs, don't asume you want to save changes and will ask if you close the program.  At the least, NVDA should do the same, if the developers want this setting as the default.

I tried going ahead and updating to the new Vocalizer Driver, but because I’m still running NVDA’s latest stable version it won’t allow for the update, thus I’ve several questions for when the time comes to update myNVDA; I’m worried I’ll have to cope with a silent NVDA, and my family doesn’t know much of technology or computers, to be able to if this should arise, help me out in the meantime.

1.-What’s the best course of action, then when updating to the latest NVDA when it comes out, so that I won’t be without a voice, when the NVDA runs? If I install the Beta of NVDA in portable mode, and I update Vocalizer that way, will the upgraded voice come up speaking when the actual stable NVDA IS RELEASED?

2.-Because I’ve Vocalizer to run as my default voice, would you guys recommend then maybe defaulting to a windows10 voice to be on the safe side, and then update the Vocalizer Driver from that perspective?

Re: info difference depending on manner of navigation

Jonathan COHN
 

I looked at these links. In Chrome, NVDA was reading them correctly for me. In Firefox, I saw the behavior you described.

               

Looking at the  HTML rather than putting text into the <a> element, the designer used title to label the links. SO, my guess is that when focus is placed on the links with either k or tab, they are spoken but not when using the browse mode. I don’t know if this is a Firefox or NVDA bug.

Hi Jonathan,

using object navigation produced exactly the same result as using the cursor keys ... NVDA said "link" but nothing about what it is a link to. Only using the k shortcut keystroke added the information like Facebook and Twitter.
