Re: nvda updates

 

Hi all,

As Rui Fontes pointed out in an earlier message, NVDA 2021.3.3 is identical to 2021.3.2 apart from an internal change to how NVDA presents its version, mostly to add-ons and other code modules. Therefore, if you have received 2021.3.2 and then are seeing 2021.3.3, do not worry - I advise installing 2021.3.3 as it contains the same security fixes as in 2021.3.2 (see an earlier message from Quentin announcing 2021.3.2 as to what these security fixes are).

Cheers,

Joseph

Hmmm, didn’t think of trying that.  I’ll give it a spin when the wife is around to see if the mouse stays visible.  Thanks.

No, but what happens if you run NVDA, unplug the mouse while it is running, then plug it in again?

Hello all. Jimmy here, new member. I have a problem that only came to light because sighted people also use my computer.  Once NVDA is loaded, the mouse pointer goes invisible.  It is still there and with NVDA loaded my wife can still use the computer because it tracks and NVDA responds.  However, When NVDA is unloaded, the mouse pointer is still invisible.  The only way to get the pointer visible again is to unplug the mouse and then plug it back in.  Once the pointer is visible again it will stay that way until NVDA is once again loaded.  Any ideas what could be causing this and how to fix it?

Have you tried to see if it is accessible with Narator?

Do you know what programming language / development tools are used to develop Voice Meter?

From what I read I think there was a problem with yesterdays update.

Re: nvda updates

I installed version 2021.3.3 without hesitation on multiple computers

I had a bit of a panic when some things were not being spoken using the mouse cursor...
Such as task bar entries...

Fortunately, restarting those computers resolved that problem.

Re: Trying to learn Python with NVDA, request for help.

Hello,

Unfortunately, both the messages are completely different and not
understandable.

I'd like a more detailed reply, please!

For instance, I have a file called input.py.
I press ctrl+`, type python followed by the file name, i.e, input.py
and press the enter key.
Then, I hear some message, which I want to read character by character
or word by word.

Thanks and regards.

And hot on the heels of our latest releases today, our In-Process blog is also out with all the details, and heaps more besides!


There is of course coverage of NVDA 2021.3.3 and information on how to responsibly disclose security issues.  There is also more than you may ever have wanted to know about ways to switch between windows, how to emulate system keys and how to change the shortcut to launch NVDA.

Enjoy!

Kind regards

News – NV Access - NVDA 2021.3.3 Released #nvaccessnewsfeed

nvda@nvda.groups.io Integration <nvda@...>
 

NVDA 2021.3.3 Released

By NV Access

NV Access is pleased to announce that version 2021.3.3 of NVDA, the free screen reader for Microsoft Windows, is now available for download. This is a security update which fixes 2 security issues present in older versions of NVDA. We encourage all users to upgrade to this version.

Security fixes

NVDA 2021.3.3 includes 2 security fixes. Please responsibly disclose potential security issues to info@.... Both issues require physical access to the computer.

  • Prevent privilege escalation from secure screens. When performing an administrative action that requires a secure screen, an NVDA user can open a command prompt with system privileges.
  • Prevent a Windows issue that allowed the use of object navigation to read content on the desktop from the lock screen. This affects Windows 10 and 11.

For further information, please contact NV Access via info@....

Important Note:

Please note, after updating any software, it is a good idea to restart the computer. Restart by going to the Shutdown dialog, selecting “restart” and pressing ENTER. Updating software can change files which are in use. This can lead to instability and strange behaviour which is resolved by rebooting. This is the first thing to try if you do notice anything odd after updating.
