There is no legal free version of Eloquence.  I expect it to be up-to-date.  The plugin should run as a demo for seven days so you can evaluate it.

Re: NVDA 2021.2 is now available

Thank you David!  We do appreciate your kind words, and indeed we do certainly strive to deliver a product which is sturdy, robust, and continually improving. :)

Kind regards

Quentin.

I would like to congratulate NV Access for releasing this update after only one beta and one RC build. Of course, more betas and more release candidates are absolutely fine and having them only means that more bugs were addressed prior to the official public release. Still, the fact that we only needed one of each is a testimony to the product’s overall stability and for its robust code. The good folks at NV Access deserve a celebration and I commend them for their great work and service to the community.

contributions



Hello NVDA users,

A few months ago I announced my retirement from actively contributing code
to NVDA screen reader. However Windows 11 was announced in June, so I
decided to stay for a while to assist Nv Access with Windows 11 support. Now
that NVDA 2021.2 is here with preliminary Windows 11 support and after
spending some time in graduate school education, I can now make it official:

Goodbye, NVDA community.

Although I’m moving on from contributions, I’ll still be around somewhere –
reading, writing, research, and other activities I might be doing. The NVDA
community has been a valuable part of my life for the last nine years.
Although I’m closing a chapter in my life, the memories I had with you are
too valuable to forget. In some ways, I’m following the footsteps of Jamie
Teh, one of the founders of Nv Access and now at Mozilla – although I’ll be
focusing on other life priorities, I’m open to providing advice from time to
time. Remember what I taught you for the last few years: use the product to
its full potential, and NonVisual Desktop Access is not just a screen reader
– it is a global movement.

I hope to publish what to expect from my add-ons next before making room for
the next group of contributors and experts – add-on maintenance is the
unfinished business, and I hope to pass on most add-ons to the community by
end of this year.

Thank you, NVDA community, for everything you’ve done for me and giving me a
chance to make a difference for you for the last decade.

Cheers,

Joseph

Joseph, for some reason the clock had not updated and as far as I can tell the updater is set to automatically update. Anyway, I updated it now and had to reset the interval for the clock and it now seems to be working. I have written down the steps from both emails and want to thank you so much for doing such a great job with your instructions. Thank you for all of your work with NVDA.


Thank you to others who also contribute to the ad-ons and other things with NVDA.

Also, if Clock add-on is present, let me konw what the version is. If it is Clock 21.09 and it is not working, chances are that it might be corrupted add-on settings.

Re: Problem to anounce some menu items

Gene
 

I’m not sure what the original poster was complaining about.  In general, if you use alt to move to the menu bar, you hear the name of the menu you are on, usually file, and nothing else because the menu isn’t opened. If you left or right arrow across the menu bar, you hear the menu you are on and nothing else because the menu isn’t opened.  If you use a short cut letter such as alt f, that moves you to and opens the file menu so you do hear the first item.
 
The thing that isn’t clear is whether the person is saying that when he/she  does something that opens a menu such as move to it and down arrow, whether the first item is heard when you down arrow once.  Likewise, if the person uses something like alt f to open a menu, if the person hears the first item or not.

And, based upon what I can see (literally) this would be the expected behavior.  If one has focus on the desktop itself, and not a shortcut or file on the desktop, when the context menu is opened no item in the context menu has initial focus, so there is nothing for NVDA to read to you other than the fact that the context menu is open.  You start having items announced once you begin arrowing through.

This seems to be the case for the context menu in general when invoked either on the desktop with no item selected, or with an item selected.  There is no focus on any specific item in the menu initially, and first focus only occurs once you begin the traversal process.

I don't have Thunderbird installed on this machine, but I do seem to recall that certain menus under Thunderbird behave similarly in that when they appear nothing in the menu itself has focus until you begin moving through it.

While this menu presentation is very far from "dirt common" it's not unheard of, either.  And it's somewhat analogous to what you see, too, in that visually nothing is selected in those menus when they pop-up.  Until and unless you click on something, nothing has focus and no action will be taken if you just hit enter or click anywhere except on one of the menu items.  If you do either of those two things the menu just disappears.

Re: Problem to anounce some menu items

Afternoon:  Bryan you are correct that no item is read in Thunderbird with Shift + F10 key stroke.  I was reading your message in Thunderbird, so, I pressed the key stroke you spoke of.  You have to arrow up or down once before an item in the menu is spoken.  This is with the version of NVDA that came out within the last few days.

Problem to anounce some menu items

bering.p
 

Hi,
I'm not sure if it's the same isue but  when Itype "shift+f10"  with focus on desktop,
NVDA says "context menu" but the first submenu is not announced.
When focus is on thunderbird list, NVDA says "menu".
When focus is in the bloc-note edi   zone, NVDA says "context menu".
I think that the problem is not solved with nvda 2021.2.
Best regards.
Paul.

I have problem with announcing menu items in Mozilla Thunderbird. Let me explain It deeply:

For example, when I open submenu 'priority', NVDA doesn't report me first item, but when I press down arrow, It says next item without any problem.

Please, could You look on those submenu issues?
Have you tested this with NVDA 2021.2? This bug is supposedly fixed in
this version.
