Re: Updating Win10 App Issentials was Re: [nvda] NV Access I've got a problem

 

Hi,

The usual way to obtain old log would be:

  1. Go to Start and type “%temp%” without quotes.
  2. Once the Temp folder is open, look for nvda-old.log.

 

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi.  Unfortunately it happened before I updated the latest master snapshot earlier this morning, my time.  Is there any way to gain access to the previous version's log?  Cheers!

Hi.  I have no problems updating NVDA itself, but I do have an issue updating the Win10 app issentials.  It prompts me to update, but when I click the update button, it comes up with an "unable to update" response.  This happens off and on, so I am wondering if it is a network or server issue.  Cheers!

Re: for Windows 7 users Re: [nvda] NVDA 2018.2 is now available!

Quentin Christensen
 

That's what it look like, yes.  Which is why upgrading from NVDA 2017.4 or earlier on Windows 7 finds 2018.2, but upgrading from 2018.1 doesn't (from my limited trial on one computer).  We should be able to fix it but in the meantime, downloading the update manually should work.

A couple of people have reported this, and we're looking into it.  In the meantime, yes downloading manually should work from https://www.nvaccess.org/download/

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Of those experiencing this, every report I've seen so far has been from Windows 7 users, is anyone experiencing this on Windows 8 or 10 please?

Just a heads up for Windows 7 users: it is necessary to go to the website to download the latest version of NVDA as searching for updates within NVDA itself still says that there are no updates available. As it is now 10 hours since Quentin's announcement, his second mention of it actually on the list, both at 12:15 AM, Pacific Standard time, I feel it safe to mention that the normal method for checking for updates within the NVDA program itself is flawed for now, perhaps to be fixed later on down the line.

Hi everyone,

Well, if you read my In-Process blog post earlier today and it left you salivating and demanding to know when we would finally release NVDA 2018.2, salivate no more!  NVDA 2018.2 is now available!

See the full announcement here:


NV Access is pleased to announce that version 2018.2 of NVDA, the free screen reader for Microsoft Windows, has now been released.

Highlights of this release include Support for tables in Kindle for PC, support for HumanWare BrailleNote Touch and BI14 Braille displays, Improvements to both Onecore and Sapi5 speech synthesizers, improvements in Microsoft Outlook and much more.

This award-winning software has been changing the lives of thousands of blind and vision impaired people who can now independently use computers to produce written content, read news, socialise, shop and bank online, and, most importantly, actively participate in education and employment.

Your welcome. I wonder if things broke when Windows 7 users didn't, and weren't supposed to get the automatic update notice from the 2018.1 minor update that was rolled out to WinX users? Just a thought.

Thanks Travis,

A couple of people have reported this, and we're looking into it.  In the meantime, yes downloading manually should work from https://www.nvaccess.org/download/

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Of those experiencing this, every report I've seen so far has been from Windows 7 users, is anyone experiencing this on Windows 8 or 10 please?

Regards

Quentin.

Just a heads up for Windows 7 users: it is necessary to go to the website to download the latest version of NVDA as searching for updates within NVDA itself still says that there are no updates available. As it is now 10 hours since Quentin's announcement, his second mention of it actually on the list, both at 12:15 AM, Pacific Standard time, I feel it safe to mention that the normal method for checking for updates within the NVDA program itself is flawed for now, perhaps to be fixed later on down the line.

Hi everyone,

Well, if you read my In-Process blog post earlier today and it left you salivating and demanding to know when we would finally release NVDA 2018.2, salivate no more!  NVDA 2018.2 is now available!

See the full announcement here:


NV Access is pleased to announce that version 2018.2 of NVDA, the free screen reader for Microsoft Windows, has now been released.

Highlights of this release include Support for tables in Kindle for PC, support for HumanWare BrailleNote Touch and BI14 Braille displays, Improvements to both Onecore and Sapi5 speech synthesizers, improvements in Microsoft Outlook and much more.

This award-winning software has been changing the lives of thousands of blind and vision impaired people who can now independently use computers to produce written content, read news, socialise, shop and bank online, and, most importantly, actively participate in education and employment.

Re: nvda 2018.2 is there for windows 7 sp1 and higher

Quentin Christensen
 

There is definitely an issue upgrading on Windows 7 using the upgrade check in the program itself.  Possibly related to the block we put on that routine upgrading from 2018.1 to 2018.1.1 (since the fix in 2018.1.1 only affected Windows 10).  In the meantime, updating from https://www.nvaccess.org/download/ should work fine.

And yes, 2018.2 should work fine on Windows 7, with the caveat that you need Windows 7 SP1.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hi folks

Indeed, I believe there is a problem so that win7 users are not able to update over the help menu in the update section.
However you can do the upgrade from the nvaccess website and do it manually.
As I write now I am a win7 sp1 user with all update and working fine with nvda 2018.2.
But I do not understand why people here are spreading rumors that 2017.4 was the last version for win7 users.
The only thing I admit is that somewhere NVACCESS had a problem including the upgrade into the help menu i.e. that is the case for my system but please do the upgrade manually and the update process is just working fine then.
I am very satisfied with the hard work for this new version.

Re: Chinese IME and Candidate lists?

Hi,
If you are choosing English as a default UI language In NVDA. Maybe,
the following steps could resoulve this "candidate reporting" issue.
1. NVDA menu, Preferences, general settings.
2. Press end, then press upArrow to choose language Chinese
Traditional Taiwan (zh_TW).
3. Press enter to restart NVDA.
(In this case, languages zh_CN, zh_HK also work.)

Thanks.

Hi. Not sure if anyone can help with this, but I am trying to use the
Chinese microsoft IME to write. However, when I am entering the
composition string, I am unable to get candidates read out loud.
Arrowing simply reads back the string using the phonetically pinyin
letters, and when I press space I can tell that I have selected a
different candidate for the composition string but can't figure that
out until after the text is already entered. Is this a problem with my
NVDA? Or the ime itself? Trying to write in Chinese.. but it's a total
shot in the dark when I have to press space and just accept whatever
it gives me. lol

OK I tried to update to NVDA 2018.2 and got the message that said failed to update. I’m going to manually have to download off the NV Access site. Is anyone experiencing this by checking for updates via NVDA?

Hi everyone,

It looks like 2018.1 on Windows 7 isn't seeing the update (likely, as Artin suggested, due to us preventing it from seeing the 2018.1.1 update).  For those running Windows 7 and experiencing this, please either sit tight while we work on it, or download 2018.2 manually from https://www.nvaccess.org/download/

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Quentin.

Hi.

I’d like to take this time to thank all the staff and everyone who works on nvda for this update.

You all do an excellent job.  And as far as I am concerned, NVDA is the best screen reader that I have ever used for windows.

So, thank you again.

Hi everyone,

 

Well, if you read my In-Process blog post earlier today and it left you salivating and demanding to know when we would finally release NVDA 2018.2, salivate no more!  NVDA 2018.2 is now available!

 

See the full announcement here:

 

 

NV Access is pleased to announce that version 2018.2 of NVDA, the free screen reader for Microsoft Windows, has now been released.

Highlights of this release include Support for tables in Kindle for PC, support for HumanWare BrailleNote Touch and BI14 Braille displays, Improvements to both Onecore and Sapi5 speech synthesizers, improvements in Microsoft Outlook and much more.

This award-winning software has been changing the lives of thousands of blind and vision impaired people who can now independently use computers to produce written content, read news, socialise, shop and bank online, and, most importantly, actively participate in education and employment. Please consider helping NV Access to continue this important work by becoming a monthly donor.

Re: For windows 7 users

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi everyone,

Firstly as many have noted, NVDA 2018.2 will run just fine on Windows 7, as long as you have Windows 7 SP1 installed.  What seems to be the issue is simply the check for updates.  I think Artin might have found the answer though - My windows 7 machine running NVDA 2018.1 didn't see the update.  When I installed 2017.3 on that machine, and checked for updates, it can see 2018.2.

In any case, if you are running Windows 7 and not finding the update when checking, if you download manually from https://www.nvaccess.org/download/ it should install and update just fine.

Regards

Quentin.

To be honest the only device I think will not work fully will be one of my usb soundcards but I can probably run that without drivers and it will work without its effects and gaming  for older games but still.

As for scanners and printers, a friend had the same issue, upgraded the system and while the printer worked as well as the scanner it was not updated and he had to buy another one, the unit was 10 years old though.

My multifunction is like that but its getting older so we will eventually have to get it sorted the latest drivers will not install but the printer's own internal older drivers will so.

On the other side I got my aunt a nice unit with everything and all set up no hastle so who knows, prices are dropping down.

Upgrading an operating system may have many consequences, depending on your system, and must be carefully considered. Upgrading from Win 7 to 10 may mean that your older peripherals such as printers and scanners may no longer work because updated drivers may not be available. I generally do not upgrade an operating system until I get a new PC. Keep in mind that Win 7 will be supported until 2020, and perhaps longer. There are still many people and even businesses that are still successfully using Windows XP.

   Hi,
   This message is for Windows 7 users.

   You will not receive NVDA 2018.2
   2017.4 is the last version you'll get.
   I'd highly suggest upgrading to Windows 10.

Re: no update available

Quentin Christensen
 

The reports I've had so far indicate that downloading from the website https://www.nvaccess.org/download/ and installing the update that way works fine, it seems to be the update routine not seeing the update.

I won't do that until I've got a message that the coast is clear as to the update issue.

Re: Administrative privileges.

Sarah k Alawami
 

No, there is an even further hidden admin account You have to turn it on via the windows command prompt.

If it's marked as Administrator you have the ability to run commands or do anything else with elevated privileges, but that elevation does not occur by default.

If there is only one account on a Windows 10 computer it is highly unlikely it is not an account with Administrator status and privileges.

All of the above being said, one does not need to open a shortcut with admin privileges to add a keyboard shortcut.  For any desktop shortcut I've tried to add a keyboard shortcut for, the only option, and it occurs whether one its CTRL alone, ALT alone, or CTRL + ALT is that the shortcut will start with CTRL+ALT followed by the character one types while holding down the previously noted key or two keys (and, of course, that letter has not already been assigned to another desktop shortcut or system shortcut).

Thanks Travis,

A couple of people have reported this, and we're looking into it.  In the meantime, yes downloading manually should work from https://www.nvaccess.org/download/

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Of those experiencing this, every report I've seen so far has been from Windows 7 users, is anyone experiencing this on Windows 8 or 10 please?

Quentin.

Just a heads up for Windows 7 users: it is necessary to go to the website to download the latest version of NVDA as searching for updates within NVDA itself still says that there are no updates available. As it is now 10 hours since Quentin's announcement, his second mention of it actually on the list, both at 12:15 AM, Pacific Standard time, I feel it safe to mention that the normal method for checking for updates within the NVDA program itself is flawed for now, perhaps to be fixed later on down the line. Thanks.

Chinese IME and Candidate lists?

Clement Chou
 

Hi. Not sure if anyone can help with this, but I am trying to use the
Chinese microsoft IME to write. However, when I am entering the
composition string, I am unable to get candidates read out loud.
Arrowing simply reads back the string using the phonetically pinyin
letters, and when I press space I can tell that I have selected a
different candidate for the composition string but can't figure that
out until after the text is already entered. Is this a problem with my
NVDA? Or the ime itself? Trying to write in Chinese.. but it's a total
shot in the dark when I have to press space and just accept whatever
it gives me. lol


Re: Any one using microsoft visio?

Pranav Lal
 

Hi Eric,

I have used Visio in the past to read diagrams. I was able to tab from one
element to the next and hear the description of that element. I have not
been able to create diagrams but this is something worth investigating.

Re: nvda 2018.2 is there for windows 7 sp1 and higher

 

strange.

My win7 laptop x64 pro updated fine.

The 2 win10 units did to 1803 home and pro respectively my 32 bit win7 unit didn't so I guess its random if your unit will or not.

Hi folks

Indeed, I believe there is a problem so that win7 users are not able to update over the help menu in the update section.
However you can do the upgrade from the nvaccess website and do it manually.
As I write now I am a win7 sp1 user with all update and working fine with nvda 2018.2.
But I do not understand why people here are spreading rumors that 2017.4 was the last version for win7 users.
The only thing I admit is that somewhere NVACCESS had a problem including the upgrade into the help menu i.e. that is the case for my system but please do the upgrade manually and the update process is just working fine then.
I am very satisfied with the hard work for this new version.

I'm phrasing my answers in this format in hopes that we can be better informed in the future.
