I thought there was a new update too but there isn’t. We do have the latest version of NVDA.

Hi there: When I went to check for updates. I was told there was no updates.  Is there a new update? Usually NVDA will say new update available.  I did not get a notification. So I went to the place where it says check for updates. There wasn’t any.

The error you gave isn't one I've seen before - NVDA doesn't need access to the Internet in order to install or run.  It obviously won't be able to check for updates if it can't access the Internet, but aside from that (and the error it gives if you try to manually check for updates is "Error checking for updates" - when it checks automatically each day it doesn't give an error if there is no connection).

 

If you go to the download's page in your browser and try to download, it will either load the page or not, and then download or give an error.  At this stage, I'm not even sure if you have downloaded an update or where you are at.  All I can tell you is that I've downloaded NVDA several times today to check, both using the update function, and manually, and haven't had any problems with the process.

I just installed 2019.1 and updated it to 2019.2.1 without incident.  You could either try again and see if it works this time, or you could download the current version from: https://www.nvaccess.org/download/

 

Downloading and installing from there will still recognise your previous version and keep your existing settings.

Re: Insert Key deactivated after shutdown and restart

 

Ron,

             If you have not already done so, check to see if Fast Startup is enabled on your system and, if so, disable it.  The very first "mysterious experience" I had that had Fast Startup and the corruption of the hibernation file used by same at its root was for JAWS and not responding to keyboard input.

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

Control Panel, Power Options, Choose what the Power Button does link, activate the Change settings that are currently unavaliable link to make the checkboxes for Turn on Fast Startup (recommended), Sleep, Hibernate, and Lock available for checking/unchecking.  Uncheck the checkbox for Fast Startup and gracefully work your way back out of the dialogs.

I'am currently using NVDA version 2019.1

Ok which version do you both have?  The last regular stable version is 2019.2.1.  Yes, we're normally up to .3 thinking about .4 by now, but with big changes coming in to the next release, we didn't want to rush it just to meet a time frame.

So, if you are running 2019.2.1, then you're on the latest version.  You can also check on the download page: https://www.nvaccess.org/download the first heading tells you the current version.

BTW, I'm not at all sure about this, Ron, but I rather suspect this

does seem to be issues w/them.

Hi Group,

I can't quite remember just when this started, but over the past one to
two weeks, I have noticed that when I shutdown and restart the computer,
when I try to use NVDA desktop keystrokes, the insert key does not

in just the T being recognized and if on the desktop, I move to the
first item that begins with T.  I have checked to see whether somehow
the numlock has been turned on and it has not. I have toggled it on and
off a few times every time this has occurred to see if that changed
anything and it did not.

The way to reactivate the insert key is to shut down and restart NVDA.
Since the insert key is not working at this time, I have to use windows
key + B to move to the system tray and then use first letter navigation
to move to NVDA, then press enter on NVDA and up arrow once to exit and
press enter.  Then I can use the NVDA hotkey to restart the program and
everything works as it should.

Has anyone else experienced this recently, and if so is there a
cause/remedy?

Thanks for any help.

Re: Virtual review and cmd / power shell

 

Hi,

Technically, it does not replace screen review, especially if modern apps are involved. This add-on will do what JAWS’s “virtualize current window” command does: presents screen content (almost the entire screen content) as a virtual viewer so one can review text. In modern apps such as ones found in Windows 8 and later, this add-on will gather content text by traversing through all screen elements (or almost all elements) and collect labels and present it on screen.

Cheers,

Joseph

I don't know enough about virtual review to comment on that.  It sounded to me from the description and from the name that it duplicates screen review but are you saying that isn't the case?  I was saying that it evidently allows you to search the screen which is a feature no NVDA review mode has and thus, it shouldn't be described as just a convenience.  But it would be good to clarify if it duplicates screen review but with different commands or does something else.

I just read the description of the add-on.  The sentence near the beginning that says that it is just for convenience and doesn't replace the NVDA review methods appears to be inaccurate.  Assuming that this is equivalent to screen mode in NVDA, it has an important ability that screen mode has never had, nor object navigation.  You can't search for content in either of those modes.  You have to look at the screen or move through the screen line by line to get to something.

Hi all,

 

The add-ons people have received numerous reports of incompatible add-ons listed on community add-ons website, along with reports of at least one add-on that wasn’t maintained actively until recently. To highlight these, a “legacy add-ons” section has been created at the following page:

https://addons.nvda-project.org/legacy.en.html

 

For purposes of record keeping, a legacy add-on is an add-on that is no longer actively maintained and/or incompatible with recent NVDA releases. When a new add-on maintainer is found or the add-on becomes compatible with recent NVDA releases, they will return to either “stable” or “development” status depending on the status prior to legacy declaration. Some add-ons will be removed after being declared “legacy” for some time if the add-on becomes unnecessary, mostly due to features from the add-on becoming part of NVDA screen reader.

 

Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph

Since the insert key is not working at this time, I have to use windows key + B to move to the system tray and then use first letter navigation to move to NVDA, then press enter on NVDA and up arrow once to exit and press enter.  Then I can use the NVDA hotkey to restart the program and everything works as it should.

Has anyone else experienced this recently, and if so is there a cause/remedy?

Thanks for any help.

Re: Braille displays missing from "Braille Display" combo box

Mallard
 

Hello,

I can provide a driver for Freedom Scientifi displays, if needed.


It happens to me too.

What I have to do is either:


Select Automatic, at which point my mp 40 is detected immediately and I can usa it, or


disconnect the usb cable from the pc, enter the NVDA menu, select Braille, reconnect the cable, wait a few seconds, afte which the Freedom Scientific display will appear in teh list.


Annoying though.

Try and, if you need a driver, let meknow either privately or here.


To contact me:


mallard@...


Ciao,

Ollie

Hi!

I never paid attention to this until I actually had to use it with another display. Hopefully someone else has had this happen and has a fix.

I have a BrailleSensePolaris, and have to use it with NVDA. I've gone ahead and installed the driver so I can use it via USB as well (HIMS link in users guide seems broken, at least I got nothing out of that), and it refuses to show up. In fact, displays like Freedom Scientific aren't showing up either, even though I've used it with other software before. Weirdly, I grabbed a laptop at work with nothing but clean Windows 10 1909, launched NVDA, and more displays showed up on that particular computer than has been the case on the one I am currently using, even without me installing anything else except NVDA.

What gives? Not seeing HIMS at all, in fact. Display pairs fine with Bluetooth, NVDA just doesn't show it. Running NVDA 2019.2.1. I see another thread on this exact issue a year ago, and no solution was forthcoming in that topic.

There is an error on the page.  Both the stable version link and the development version link are identical.  They both lead to the same version of the program and, when you follow one of the links, the other link shows as visited as well--the identical underlying link but with a different name.

I just read the description of the add-on.  The sentence near the beginning that says that it is just for convenience and doesn't replace the NVDA review methods appears to be inaccurate.  Assuming that this is equivalent to screen mode in NVDA, it has an important ability that screen mode has never had, nor object navigation.  You can't search for content in either of those modes.  You have to look at the screen or move through the screen line by line to get to something.

You need to install the virtual review addon as this is not a built-in
NVDA function. You can get it at

Re: Community ad-ons process and website update: legacy add-ons

Joseph, I recently got an update for “extended Winamp”. V1.2. when I went to the web page it is still showing v1.1. Addon manager does not show what the new changes are in v1.2

Hi all,

 

The add-ons people have received numerous reports of incompatible add-ons listed on community add-ons website, along with reports of at least one add-on that wasn’t maintained actively until recently. To highlight these, a “legacy add-ons” section has been created at the following page:

https://addons.nvda-project.org/legacy.en.html

 

For purposes of record keeping, a legacy add-on is an add-on that is no longer actively maintained and/or incompatible with recent NVDA releases. When a new add-on maintainer is found or the add-on becomes compatible with recent NVDA releases, they will return to either “stable” or “development” status depending on the status prior to legacy declaration. Some add-ons will be removed after being declared “legacy” for some time if the add-on becomes unnecessary, mostly due to features from the add-on becoming part of NVDA screen reader.

 

Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph

 

Re: Unable to update NVDA

Ok which version do you both have?  The last regular stable version is 2019.2.1.  Yes, we're normally up to .3 thinking about .4 by now, but with big changes coming in to the next release, we didn't want to rush it just to meet a time frame.

So, if you are running 2019.2.1, then you're on the latest version.  You can also check on the download page: https://www.nvaccess.org/download the first heading tells you the current version.

Regards

Quentin.

I'm happy to try to help you, but a one-word answer to two questions at once isn't as helpful as it could be.

 

The error you gave isn't one I've seen before - NVDA doesn't need access to the Internet in order to install or run.  It obviously won't be able to check for updates if it can't access the Internet, but aside from that (and the error it gives if you try to manually check for updates is "Error checking for updates" - when it checks automatically each day it doesn't give an error if there is no connection).

 

If you go to the download's page in your browser and try to download, it will either load the page or not, and then download or give an error.  At this stage, I'm not even sure if you have downloaded an update or where you are at.  All I can tell you is that I've downloaded NVDA several times today to check, both using the update function, and manually, and haven't had any problems with the process.

Quentin.

I just installed 2019.1 and updated it to 2019.2.1 without incident.  You could either try again and see if it works this time, or you could download the current version from: https://www.nvaccess.org/download/

 

Downloading and installing from there will still recognise your previous version and keep your existing settings.

Hi Jonathon,

 

Can you please give some details about why you are unable to update?  Are you getting an error message (if so, what does it say)?

 

I downloaded NVDA earlier and it was working then.  It might have been a temporary issue somewhere along the line.  It's worth trying again and then if you still have problems, try to describe exactly what is happening and what response you are getting so we can help.

 

Kind regards

If you select the "people" group, you can tab to a list of the skin tones and select the one you want.
