Not that this is your fault, but that article is grossly out of date.  This is one of the reasons I try to encourage people to update to a given Windows release, if they intend to, as promptly as possible after the "bleeding edge" period is over, and I consider that to be 6 months.

Check for updates has not worked as noted there for some time.  It will pull back optional updates, but those are placed in their own Optional Quality Updates section on the Windows Update screen, and you must choose to download and install them.  I've had several sitting there over time, and I do agree with the principle that applying optional updates is bad practice if your goal is to maintain maximum system stability.

2018 is several lifetimes ago for Windows 10 in the age of Windows As A Service and there have been major changes to the behaviors of Windows Update since then.

Hi Brian,


Thunderbird notified me of an update right through the "About..." dialogue, so whether or not I am an exception to a rule among other exceptions is irrelevant to me.

Had I opted into some sort of beta, gone to the website and downloaded a beta build, I would have been a happy beta user until its official release. But since the programme itself offered me the update through the release channel, it's not my responsibility to check whether or not this version was put out as a full release by mistake, which I cannot really imagine happened at that point anyway.


Regards,

Nermin

Also, regarding updating to version 102.2 of Thunderbird, whenever the update is released for automatic update, most users will be automatically updated.  Since there is the known problem being discussed with this version, if you don't want to update, set NVDA to let you know about updates but let you choose whether to install them.

If you do this, a dialog will come up off and on in Thunderbird telling you that an update is available.  Just press escape and continue with what you were doing.

I don't want programs to automatically update and I use that setting.

To change this setting, do the following:
Open tools, alt t.
Up arrow once to settings and press enter.
You will be on an edit field for searching settings.
I believe that using defaults, you will automatically be in focus mode and can type in the field.  If you aren't, do what is appropriate.  You are working with a web page interface.

Type update.  Don't ;press enter.
Tab until you get to a radio button that says something like automatically update.  If it has been changed from the default, it will say something like check for updates but let me decide to install them.
That is the one you want checked. 
Once it is, close settings with control f4, not with alt f4.

As far as I can see, what is being discussed in this article is what NVDA sees as a button in the Windows update dialog.  There is a button that says check for updates.

Don't press it unless you want unstable updates that haven't been fully tested and may be harmful. 

There is nothing wrong with opening the updates dialog and seeing if any new updates are available.  But don't press the check for updates button unless you want to receive what amount to beta updates that may be harmful.

Indeed.  If you have automatic updating enabled, but are between the check for update cycles (as it's not checked every 5 minutes, but every few days), going to the Help menu and choosing About Thunderbird will trigger a manual check for updates, and will notify you if one is available and tell you what the version number of that update actually is.

So far, in my personal experience, I have not seen a single instance of Thunderbird 91.X ever offer anything other than the next of the 91.X dot releases.  A jump to the on-hundred or higher (and I think one oh two is the first in that series that has now been released) versions has not been offered.  And this is congruent with what Mozilla states about the update progression as it currently exists at the time of this writing.

I've also learned, and this is not meant to be accusatory, that a very great many end users have taken actions that they neither realize they have taken or have applied updates they weren't exactly aware they were applying.  One of my perennial favorites is those who claim that either Windows 10 Feature Updates or the in-place upgradt to Windows 11 happened without their input.  Ever since full-automatic updating for these classes of changes ceased there is always a "Download and install" link for them, with the description of what you're downloading and installing before it.  How anyone "misses" this before activating that link will always elude me.  This has absolutely nothing to do with a given users visual status.  I run in to this all the time when I'm out tending to people's computers.  They're not lying, in the conventional sense, in many cases when they say, "But I didn't {insert thing here/update in this conversation."  But they are mistaken, as certain update paths just do not happen, settings do not get changed, unless you as an individual or something you chose to install actually goes in and makes settings changes.  And in some cases, there are ways to verify what actually happened, though you seldom want to involve the client in that regard, but where having done so makes it easier to determine how to proceed or to back out a given change.

You'll sometimes need to deactivate it on certain sites, but if you're browsing in Chrome, F6 will get you to the address bar, then tab will get you to the set of buttons. After that, you can right arrow to uBlock Origin and activate it with space.

Re: Excel not speaking cell coordinates or content on startup or refocus

Hi


I remember a fix but can not remember what version of excel it was but one was apparently if you went into excel then tried to arrow around say from a1 to other cells it would not say any thing.


Apparently if the scroll lock was on it would cause this problem


When turned off you could arrow around and hear what was in each cell. Maybe it was hit accidentally.


I did also about the same time see the other suggestion given but think it was for latest excel?



Let us know if it was the scroll lock causing the problem?

I had something similar to this happening with Office 2019, about 18 months ago. I reported it in a Github issue, but it never got any love. In my case, the logs showed that the virtual buffer was crashing, and the alt trick caused it to be reinitialized. But switching apps would also fix it, which doesn't seem to be happening with you.

Have you tried NVDA with add-ons disabled?

Also, have you tried the COM Registration Fixing Tool in the NVDA tools menu?

And manually updating isn't limited to going to a web page, downloading the exe file and running it.

The about dialog in the program itself shows an update button unless you are now running 102.2.  The program itself is telling you to update if you rely on information in the about dialog.  It also tells you that you are on the main update channel.

I am retracting my prior assertion about 102.X releases.  They have very recently been put on a PARALLEL release channel and it's now 102.x that will download from the main Thunderbird page (https://www.thunderbird.net/en-US/, in the USA).  It's also reflected on the Thunderbird Releases page, and landed there at the very end of June.  The one-hundred-plus releases channel is, at the moment, disjoint from the earlier release channel progression.

But the "conventional release channel" (they don't term these channels at all well or distinctively) where automatic updates progress through from the lower numbers does end, at the moment, with 91.12.0.

It appears that at the moment there exist betas for both 103.X and 104.X releases.

I would advise those who have not manually downloaded the one-hundred-two release to replace their ninety-one release not to do so yet.  It's clear that it has introduced certain accessibility issues that keep being brought up.

Re: inserted advertising

As I recall, in Chrome, this feature is hidden and must be turned on in the experimental settings category of settings.  this category of settings is not available in the ususal settings interface.  I'd have to look information about it again, but it is not intended that the general user know about the feature nor how to get to it.

Edge makes the feature available and provides a short cut command to toggle it on and off, f9.

It comes up on some web sites and not on others because the browser itself determines when it is appropriate to offer it.

There are pages without articles where it should not be offered.  If you are on a shopping site or the home page of a newspaper, it shouldn't be available.  One of its purposes is to remove extraneous material from articles.  Web pages without articles would be rendered useless if the same kind of material were removed.

As you will see from this interesting page, Immersive reader wasn't developed as a blindness accessibility tool, at least in the case of Edge.  Blind people may benefit from it but look at all the features offered, most of them visual.

Re: inserted advertising

In Firefox or Edge, yes. Chrome is a little different. It has a Reader Mode too, but it’s not enabled by default (unless this changed in very recent versions, but I don’t think so). You’ll need to type chrome://flags into the address bar. This will open a page of “deep settings” that control various browser functions. Look for “enable reader mode” (you can use the search box to do this, therea re a *lot* of flags in there) and activate it. Now, you’ll be able to enter reader mode on certain webpages. F9 won’t do it…I think the keystroke is ctrl-shift-r, and you’ll also see a button for it located in the address bar area if it’s available.

Nermin,

I haven't, and I have tried triggering an update repeatedly.  This morning it took me to 91.12.0.

If I have to choose between what Mozilla says, and on group reports, I will go with what the software maker states when isolated exceptions are all that contradicts them. When you add in what I have observed, directly, well . . .

Immersive reader is another name for reader mode.  It won't take away control from your screen-reader.  It may have a read aloud button where reading is not done by the screen-reader but you have to manually start that option.

Or you can read an entire article without all those interruptions. In firefox, which is the easiest to use, in my view, you just hit f9 to invoke reader mode. That's all there is to it. When you move to another site, its turned off, so must be turned on each time you want to use it. You can also tottle it off if you're on a site where it didn't work well for some reason, just by hitting f9 again.

I seem to believe that if I use immersive reader it just continuously reads the whole webpage with no control to read line by line word by word, paragraph, etc.

Re: Unable To Display Status Bar IN Latest Thunderbird Version 102.1.1

Hi Brian,


I'll happily report what I said a month or so back, and what others also said a while ago.


I never installed any Thunderbird beta and was offered the upgrade to 102.X through the release channel from 91.2, or whatever the version was at the time.

I have no idea what might be happening on your end, but I can confirm on mine, using Windows 11 Home Version 21H2, Build 22000.434, following the instructions in, Using the Microsoft Special Applications Folder for Creating Desktop Shortcuts, from end to end works as documented, with no silences or dialogs failing to pop up.
