Ok. Thanks for the answer, Brian.

Not really. If say a bug is spotted on the normal release version, a new release version say.4.1 is made and the fix exported back to Alpha as well to make sure both are based on the same code.
The other way around of course, the whole point of alpha is for new features and fixes to be tested. You do not want untested code going to a stable version. In the old days we also had a  channel where tested alpha code was in a beta, but now that only starts to appear nearer a release time. You need to watch for this on the snapshots page, which is what I do. The reason is that at times new enhancements come out that affect the beta and it will have to be altered, so the point of beta is to have it more or less fixed in stone before letting the public  destructively test 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?

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.

Hi Quentin,
First, thanks for your answer.
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.

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.

Re: 32Bit or 64Bit Office with NVDA

Brian K. Lingard
 

Dear Noah & List:
Select your Office version based on whether you have a 32 or 64 bit PC.

If your PC has only the programs folder it is 32 bit.
If it also has a folder system32, it is a 64-bit PC.

Office 64-bit can edit and manipulate larger spreadsheet, word and such files than the 32-bit version.

Does anyone know of a video editing program that would work with NVDA or know of someone who would be able to make an add on that would work with one?

I use to make YouTube videos with Movie Maker and since Windows10 came around, I wasn't able to edit anything anymore.

I've downloaded almost every video editing program I could think of that would work with NVDA and the keyboard but, no such luck.

I don't mind which program, as long as it can split, copy, cut and do all the basic things like movie maker.

Can anyone help please?

It does not matter.

I have 32 bit, if you have more than 4gb ram and you probably do 64 is fine 64 is only for large files but you can install it.

Your licence key will probably work on both.

Re: added some applications to the wiki

Hi Robert



Not sure if you are aware but a few years back i put together a page of software that works with nvda with feed back from the community.

The page can be found at http://accessibilitycentral.net/nvda_road_tested_programs.html

I did link I think it was to the wicki page maybe under guides? I would have to check.


I never got around to actually doing a wicki page like you are putting together.


may be it was just a lot easier using the program i use to make my website? or having the time to do it.


It may be 2 that there are not many people who know how to edit a wicki page 2? or have done it.


may be people may not be aware of the wicki page?


I do not know if you can copy and paste large amounts of programs that work with nvda into a wicki page if that is the case there is the page that was put together that can be added for a back up then may be one day my page can be removed.
