Re: Important notice about upcoming Windows 10 App Essentials 18.06/18.05.3: provisions to support NVDA 2018.2 RC

 

Hi all,

 

Windows 10 App Essentials 18.05.3 and 18.06 are out. Make sure you go over a notice I posted a few hours ago regarding which version to use. Later today, a corresponding pilot development snapshot will hit the air.

Cheers,

Joseph

Subject: Important notice about upcoming Windows 10 App Essentials 18.06/18.05.3: provisions to support NVDA 2018.2 RC

 

Hi everyone,

 

In a few hours I’ll release Windows 10 App Essentials 18.06 and 18.05.3. Due to vast differences in some code sections, both will be released at the same time, targeting different NVDA versions:

 

  • 18.05.3: NVDA 2018.1.1 and earlier.
  • 18.06: NVDA 2018.2 RC and later (including stable version).

 

Please follow the below procedure from start to finish:

 

  1. Windows 10 App Essentials 18.05.3 will hit the air first. Please use add-on update check facility to check for this version.
  2. Shortly afterwards (in a matter of minutes), version 18.06 will hit the air. If you happen to be using 18.05.3 and find that version 18.06 is offered: say “yes” if you are using NVDA 2018.2 RC or snapshot builds; say “no” if you need to keep 2018.1.1 or earlier around until 2018.2 hits the air.
  3. If you accidentally install 18.06 on a computer running NVDA 2018.1.1, or install 18.05.3 on systems with NVDA 2018.2, don’t worry – procedures are in place to help you upgrade/downgrade to appropriate release. I’ll provide direct links for those who need them.
  4. Once NVDA 2018.2 stable hits the air, add-on 18.06 will be offered to everyone.

 

The above procedure does not apply if you are using development snapshots of this add-on (both regular and pilot variants). However, due to code differences between regular and pilot snapshots, regular development snapshots will be paused for a while. Once NVDA 2018.2 hits the air, development snapshot variants will merge back into a single variant – regular builds until a new NVDA snapshot calls for separating the variants again.

 

Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph

Well, that is pretty much in the control of Facebook end not the browser. As Sarah suggested, you can sometimes get one browser to tell the website it is another browser and then get a different look/feel.  On the other hand, Facebook has made significant strides to get its interface to work fairly well in focus mode.

Re: Important notice about upcoming Windows 10 App Essentials 18.06/18.05.3: provisions to support NVDA 2018.2 RC

 

Hi,

The biggest change in version 18.06 is rewritten code so it can be powered by NVDA 2018.2 features. In particular:

  • Because NVDA 2018.2 includes a fix for the “unknown” announcement problem in quick link menu (Windows+X), the add-on no longer carries this fix.
  • Added support for IUIAutomation5 interface introduced in Windows 10 Version 1709 (Fall Creators Update). Specifically, NVDA will now announce notifications from recent app releases such as Calculator, Alarms and Clock, Microsoft Store and others. NVDA 2018.2 includes a trivial implementation, while the add-on includes mitigations for specific cases.
  • If using Windows 10 Redstone 5 (Insider Preview) and if Sets is enabled for you, NVDA will: announce search suggestions when you search for things in new Sets page, and will announce name of the selected tab when you switch between app tabs.
  • Added support for redesigned emoji panel and related features in Windows 10 Redstone 5 (Insider Preview), including announcement of cloud clipboard suggestions.

 

Cheers,

Joseph

Hello:

 

For a while now, I've had issues when updating to new snapshots of NVDA.

It's a hit and miss deal with me.

 

 

Currently, I"m running a fairly new install of Windows 10, 1803. The

version of next I'm running is NVDA next-15159,465f57b2. There is a

newer snapshot available, but, I can't get it through update functionality.

 

 

How can we troubleshoot this and get it fixed permanently? This problem

has persisted for a bit now, a month or two, possibly. Any ideas to help

with this are appreciated.

Re: Python Console

Brandon Cross <bcross3286@...>
 

Or as a handy calculator, since it can easily be accessed through NVDA control Z, just make sure you pass both floats if you expect a float in return, so in other words, don't do 5/2 and look strange when it says 2 rather than 2.5. This limitation has been removed in python 3, and NVDA can still do it, I think you have to import something and do something else, but for general use, just make sure all numbers are floats if you're looking for a float in return.


Re: Python Console

 

Hi,

Yes and no. You can experiment with Python here, but not all libraries are not included in NVDA. The python Console is mostly used to test new code ideas or probe accessibility of various controls.

Joseph
