Hi, Sarah,

 

I'm tempted to ask the mods to block all this person's messages. Anybody who refuses to update their software or screen readers deserves to be hacked. Sorry to be harsh but maybe this is what it'll take to make this person update their operating system and screen reader.

Re: NVDA updating versions

 

If you use a lot of add-ons, you need to write to the add on developers to make sure theirs is compatible. Get the add on updater so you don't have to go hunting. The only thing you'd have to be conscious of is add ons. Which honestly makes me beyond happy they are not releasing this soon. I want enough time for all add on developers to get ready. I'm glad it's not being rushed out. I'd imagine all the illegal add ons, like the illegal synthesizers won't work right from the start, but, again, I'm looking forward to this release. The what's new was a huge joy to read!

Re: NVDA updating versions

 

Hi,
A bit of both: NVDA will keep up to date by itself if you ask it to, but some add-ons will need to be updated as they are not compatible with NVDA 2019.3; for some incompatible add-ons, add-on authors said they will release compatible releases shortly before and after 2019.3 comes out; for others, they are getting onboard, while others may need to be dropped from your system as add-ons people haven't heard from authors in a while. There are at least two add-ons that will become obsolete because 2019.3 will include functionality from these add-ons.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hi,

I also updated the WinAmp add-on to version 1.2 the other day. I can get to
WinAmp just fine, but the playlist editor doesn't work well with NVDA
anymore. Moving through the list with Up and Down arrow doesn't say what
song you're on, and pressing NVDA+Tab won't read the information that way
either now. I ended up having to disable the add-on, and can now move

Hope this helps.

English Translation:

The handbook does not explain the regular expressions but does not give only one small example.  Admittedly, to explain the regular expressions is not the goal of the documentation of NVDA, but what must I put so that “get” (G E T) and “set” (SET) correctly marked at the beginning of word? Respectively “watches for” and “sette”…. very useful in programming.

----------------------------------------------------------------

While there are absolutely no language restrictions on the NVDA group, as a matter of practicality it is primarily an English language group.

To capture a character sequence that is at the beginning of a word, but that may or may not be the whole word, you can use the word boundary operator, \b, to anchor to a word boundary, generally white space in any amount, or a newline, preceding a word, then couple this with a wildcard for "word characters, \w, afterward occurring zero or more times.  So, to match anything starting with the characters "set" you would use:

                     \bset\w*

This would match the word "set" and the word "settings" in the first two sentences, but not "inset" in the third:

         I need to set the table.  How many place settings do we have?  The niche is inset by 5 inches.

There are myriad tutorials on Regular Expressions on the web, and quite a few tools for testing the regular expressions you create (though I do not believe a lot of them would be accessible because visual highlighting is what's used to indicate what is and is not matched).

This page gets into real detail about matching word boundaries, probably too much:  https://www.regular-expressions.info/wordboundaries.html

There are also a lot of cheat sheets out there for the most common kinds of matching.

Do you have a shortcut key for Winamp such as control alt p?  Try playing something, then activating the shortcut twice while the file is playing.  I have no idea if it will bring the program into focus but in Windows 7, doing that moves NVDA to Winamp while it is running.  But the focus problem doesn't exist in the first place and I can alt tab to it as well.

Hi Ken,

I cannot confirm your issue with Winamp as such.  However, there is a long standing issue that I have had since upgrading to Windows 10 and using Winamp. 

What happens is that if I click on an audio file in Windows Explorer Winamp will play but NVDA  won't focus on Winamp.  That is to say, NVDA will stay focused on the file in Windows Explorer that I have just clicked on.  If I then Press alt + tab and focus on Winamp and then release the keystroke, NVDA still will not focus on Winamp.  If I press insert + T to read the title bar after this second step, NVDA says 'explorer window.'  If I then press alt + tab to focus on Winamp again, this second time, focus stays on Winamp.

That is and has been happening for a few years, my big issue with Winamp.  If  I run Winamp from the desktop, this issue does not occur.
