So Alpha and stable are quite different channels.  We encourage everyone to have a copy of the latest stable build, 2018.4 - whether you have it installed and use a portable copy of the Alpha build, or the other way around, is up to you.  If you do install one build over the top of another, it will keep your settings and add-ons etc, so it should be fairly easy and painless to change channels if you desire.

Hi Hurrikennyandopo,
Thanks for your explanation, it was very clear.
But the question is: people of the NVDA Alpha channel receive updates from the Stable or there's a chance of having something on the stable and not on the alpha?

Hi Marcio


if you are running the alfa version as a installed version it will stay on the alfa version for updates.



The way a few of us do it is they might keep the stable version as the main installer version.


If they want to test out either the alfa version or beta version then they would make up a directory on the c: drive and either name it alfa version of nvda or beta version of nvda or along those lines.


They would then download either the alfa version or beta version and then make a portable copy inside of either directory and have the files put into it.


Then they would make a shortcut from the desktop either to the alfa version or the beta version to the nvda.exe file and also asign a shortcut to start that copy.


I have a alfa version plus the beta version plus the stable version on this computer.


so when you go to start it lets say for the alfa version the hot key could be alt + ctrl + the letter A.


So when you say look at my c: drive i would have c:\ nvda alfa

c:\ nvda beta

programfiles x86 nvda which is the stable version.


Hope you get what i mean.

Just to see if I got it right: If I download this version, I'll automatically lose the Alpha channel?
If so, how I can stay up to date about news on the NVDA stable without losing it?
I mean, staying in the Alpha channel I won't receive news from the stable version, or will I?
Maybe it's a stupid question but I still am confused about these channels.

You can download the update from https://www.nvaccess.org/download - when you install it, the installer will automatically install over your existing installed version.

The Beta channel automatically updates to the RC channel.
The RC channel automatically updates to the next stable release.

The alpha channel stays on the alpha channel.  If you would like to change from alpha to stable, you will need to download manually.

So anyone who downloaded either the beta or RC releases should be prompted to update to NVDA 2018.4 stable, but you can also download it manually and install.

Note that NVDA only checks once every 24 hours or so; for those following us on social media or in the groups here, you often find out before NVDA has checked.  You can either download or check for updates manually, or wait and it will do it within a day or so.

  1. Browse to the exe in question
  2. Right click or hit shift f10 or hit your applications key
  3. Click send to
  4. Click desktop
  5. Go to the desktop and copy or cut the shortcut to the clip board.
  6. Go to c:\windows\system32 and paste the shortcut there.
  7. Rename the shortcut to something like nvda or nvdaa or what not.

That's it.

I have shortcuts to my networked computers, folders on my drive etc. I can't remember when I started doingnthis, aybe 10 years ago, but I love it.

Re: Last NVDA: How do I update it?

If you have the alpha channel installed, then you will receive the next alpha build, which is different to the stable build.  For instance, for the last couple of weeks, new code which was added (fixes for issues, updates and new features) has gone into alpha, but (with a couple of exceptions) was never going to be included in 2018.4.  Those updates will hopefully be in 2019.1.  Aside from anything else, we have a code freeze a few weeks before a new release in order to give our wonderful team of translators time to update their work without fear of new features (and possibly new text to translate) being added at the last minute.

So Alpha and stable are quite different channels.  We encourage everyone to have a copy of the latest stable build, 2018.4 - whether you have it installed and use a portable copy of the Alpha build, or the other way around, is up to you.  If you do install one build over the top of another, it will keep your settings and add-ons etc, so it should be fairly easy and painless to change channels if you desire.

Note that NVDA only checks once every 24 hours or so; for those following us on social media or in the groups here, you often find out before NVDA has checked.  You can either download or check for updates manually, or wait and it will do it within a day or so.

Hi Sarah,
Could you please tell me how I can assign these shortcuts? It seems very helpful.

Hi Marcio


if you are running the alfa version as a installed version it will stay on the alfa version for updates.



The way a few of us do it is they might keep the stable version as the main installer version.


If they want to test out either the alfa version or beta version then they would make up a directory on the c: drive and either name it alfa version of nvda or beta version of nvda or along those lines.


They would then download either the alfa version or beta version and then make a portable copy inside of either directory and have the files put into it.


Then they would make a shortcut from the desktop either to the alfa version or the beta version to the nvda.exe file and also asign a shortcut to start that copy.


I have a alfa version plus the beta version plus the stable version on this computer.


so when you go to start it lets say for the alfa version the hot key could be alt + ctrl + the letter A.


So when you say look at my c: drive i would have c:\ nvda alfa

c:\ nvda beta

programfiles x86 nvda which is the stable version.


Hope you get what i mean.

NVDA 2018.4 and Joseph Lee's add-ons: all compatible, some will require this NVDA release in January 2019 and later

 

Hi everyone,

 

Starting from this release, I’ll send out a quarterly announcement about compatibility of my add-ons with upcoming NVDA releases. The notices will be sent sometime between beta 1 and stable release of the upcoming version, typically just before release candidate phase. The notices will include one or more of the following:

 

  • Status of currently released add-ons and their compatibility with upcoming NVDA releases.
  • Add-ons that will require the upcoming versions in the future, if any.
  • Things to note when using the upcoming NVDA version with various add-ons.

 

As of NVDA 2018.4:

 

  • All add-ons are compatible.
  • Several add-ons will require 2018.4 starting in January 2019 or later (see below for specifics).

 

Add-ons requiring NVDA 2018.4 or later: the following add-on releases planned for January 2019 or later will require 2018.4 in order to take advantage of the following changes:

 

  • Checkable list: some add-on options will use checkable list implementation that ships with NVDA.
  • Some add-ons will use six compatibility module for Python 2 and 3 readiness.

 

Affected add-ons and versions:

 

  • Add-on Updater: version 19.01 or later
  • StationPlaylist Studio: version 19.01/18.09.6-LTS or later

 

Other things to note:

 

  • Add-on updates: from January 2019 onwards, StationPlaylist and Windows 10 App Essentials add-ons will disable add-on update feature that ships with these add-ons (to be removed in February). This means all future add-on updates must be done via Add-on Updater. A reminder message will show up at startup (only once) when you install version 19.01 of these add-ons.
  • Python 3 transition for my add-ons is almost complete. I’ll let you know when the transition is actually complete (likely no later than February 2019).

 

Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: Last NVDA: How do I update it?

 

Hi Hurrikennyandopo,
Thanks for your explanation, it was very clear.
But the question is: people of the NVDA Alpha channel receive updates from the Stable or there's a chance of having something on the stable and not on the alpha?

Re: Last NVDA: How do I update it?

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Marcio,

You can download the update from https://www.nvaccess.org/download - when you install it, the installer will automatically install over your existing installed version.

The Beta channel automatically updates to the RC channel.
The RC channel automatically updates to the next stable release.

The alpha channel stays on the alpha channel.  If you would like to change from alpha to stable, you will need to download manually.

So anyone who downloaded either the beta or RC releases should be prompted to update to NVDA 2018.4 stable, but you can also download it manually and install.

Note that NVDA only checks once every 24 hours or so; for those following us on social media or in the groups here, you often find out before NVDA has checked.  You can either download or check for updates manually, or wait and it will do it within a day or so.

Regards

Quentin.

Hello folks.
I'm on the NVDA Alpha channel. I got informed that a new version was available, but not for the channel, I read it here just now.
The thing is: when I was going to check for updates it shows me nothing.
Anyone knows what can be happening and how to fix it?

Last NVDA: How do I update it?

 

Hello folks.

Re: Firefox browsing bug in NVDA 2018.4

This can't be assumed to be a bug in NVDA and I'm somewhat skeptical.  You mention the NVDA web site.  I get similar results with an old version of NVDA and Firefox.  And I see something like this happen sometimes on other sites.  But not on most.  If I move down the page, using the skip blocks of links command on the home page and, when I am at nonlink text, if I then turn off browse mode and tab. I am taken to the top when not in browse mode.  I am also taken to the top while in browse mode.  If, however, I stop on a link while down arrowing or moving with k, I can then tab and move to the next link or control, as expected.  This is true both with browse mode off or on.  If browse mode is off, I assume that the browser responds just as it would if no screen-reader were present.  So this may be a problem with coding on the NVDA home page, which is the only page I tested on the site, or it may be a browser problem.  I don't know if it could be an NVDA problem but based on what I've just reported I'm skeptical.

Subject: [nvda] Firefox browsing bug in NVDA 2018.4

When on a webpage, and any page at nvaccess.org will work, tabbing to
the next link anywhere on that page will shoot me up to the top, and to
the first link on that page, no matter where I started.

Windows 10 home 64-bit.

Firefox 64.0, 64-bit.

NVDA 2018.4


While I would experience this behavior on past versions of NVDA, it is
now constant.

Thanks.
