You could create a portable copy of your install with all add ons. I did this to test with a now defunked shadow machine. You could do this at lat install, hope you still can now.

If an add-on is on the official NVDA add-ons page, it has been vetted and is safe. If you are concerned about other add-ons from a security or stability standpoint, that's a different question.

Hello,
I always have my add-ons packed with the portable copy, so I think it's ok to use them in which computer you need.

Re: does nvda have its own keystroke to read footnote?

 

For those who've never needed to collect debugging information for an NVDA or NVDA Add-On Developer:

If your issue involves an NVDA crash, or you are asked to supply logs set to debug level information collection, then see: Collecting NVDA Debugging Information to Report to NVAccess, for detailed information on how to do so.  The stepwise process for determining an add-on that may be at fault is also discussed.

Re: NVDA add-on question - Clipboard History

 

As the no-cost upgrade path from Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 to Windows 10 is still available, and Windows 7 is officially out of support, and Windows 8.1 has a bit under 2 more years (I think), this would not be a great use of developer resources.  Though it would be up to the individual undertaking it, I guess.

Anyone who intends to stay in the Windows ecosystem and continue using NVDA should first update their Windows to Windows 10.  We're already at the stage where the most recent versions of NVDA are, legitimately, ceasing to have backward compatibility with earlier versions of NVDA itself, let alone out-of-support versions of Windows.

The end user does have an obligation to "keep up" or accept that they will be stuck with whatever last operational version of any piece of software happens to work with what they're insisting on keeping.

NVDA add-on question - Clipboard History

Shaban Mamedov <shabanmamedov1@...>
 

Hello everyone,
I have been using NVDA for a long time, so I really like its features, and full NVDA, to put it simply.
As you may already know, Windows 10 has an option called Clipboard History where you can place the copied text to use later wherever you want.
I have a question for members of the nvda group and add-on developers.
Is it possible to create an add-on for NVDA, that will perform the same task as the clipboard history in Windows 10, although it will be possible to use the same function with this add-on in earlier versions of Windows, such as Windows 7/8 / 8.1.
I think this add-on will help most NVDA users, as sometimes we need to put something in the clipboard history to paste later.
I have no experience with Python programming, otherwise, I will happily create this add-on for everyone.
Sincerely,
Shaban.

Hi.
Thank you for your compliments.
You are the first to report this kind of problem to me and in addition to two very distinct add-ons.
You may have a particular configuration.
To study it, I need NVDA's log in "debug" log level.
As soon as you notice the problem, please send it to me privately and as an attachment rather than integrated because it can quickly become large.

 Best regards.

Paul.

Re: Carousels/Sliders and NVDA

Bob Cavanaugh <cavbob1993@...>
 

I agree with you that this can be annoying, though I do not encounter it on all that many sites. Usually, search announcements are caused by a slideshow, and there is a button to pause it said slideshow on the website. However, there should be a way to stop a screen reader from reading these automatically.
