Hi,

No because 19.02.2 restores Python 3 compatibility, and current version isn’t python 3 compatible (at least one particular area of code; previously it was Python 3 compatible but in an attempt to fix compatibility with older NVDA releases, a method that was optimized for Python 2 was selected on a temporary basis).

Hi,
I'm on the Alpha channel.
So let's say, if I still choose to wait beyond the 2019.0.2.2, from this point I'll be able to update it automatically?

Hi,

Depends on which NVDA version you’ve got:

  • 2018.4.1: manual update is mandatory.
  • Alpha/beta: automatic update will work.

 

However, for this one and upcoming 19.02.2, you SHOULD update manually.

Hi Joseph,
If I choose to wait for the next version of add-on updater, will I still need to update it manually or can I simply update from the version I have right now to the newer one?

Re: rescue disc for the blind?

Gene
 

I suspect the problem is hardware-related unless something very unusual happened such as a power failure during a defrag or some other maintenance that moves information around such as check disk.  You may find something you can use as you wish but before putting much time and effort into working with the machine, I think a sighted person should say what the screen states.  For all we know, this could be a motherboard problem and the machine may not even get to the point where BIOS is being loaded.  Or it may be a hard drive problem.

A friend has an old DELL XP that, as he puts it, finally crashed. When I pressed for more detail, all he could tell me was that windows wasn't loading and JAWS wasn't coming on. After 20 minutes trying, and failing, to extract some more useful information, I finally resolved to trying to locate a recovery disc image, an image that had a lot of tools to possibly repair the system or transfer files from the hard drive to an external place. I could not find any for the blind. Could someone direct me to similar recovery disc images that have speech output or similar? Thanks in advance. He does not have his initial XP recovery disc.

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.

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.

It tells me that Addon updater version is not compatible with my version of NVDA. Says I need NVDA 2.0.
I am running NVDA 2018.4.1.

Reading brf files from BARD with a Focus 40

These files have all the letterts in upper case. That is not nice on the Focus. How do I get NVDA to show them in lower
case?

Thanks,
John

Re: Dropbox nag screens now appearing

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.

Hi,
unfortunately they have never been interested in accessibility. I once
had problems with the website and contacted their support staff, who
flatly proclaimed that accessibility was an unsupported feature. They
seemed incapable of grasping that accessibility is not, strictly
speaking, a feature but rather lack of it constitutes a bug, just as
lack of security or reliability does. Just imagine asking your bank
about the security of their home banking, and their response being
that this feature is currently not supported.
Best,
Felix
