As Mr. Wolak has already noted, as of today's date, the latest NVDA released version is 2019.3.1

For completeness, here are the two commands you can use to check what version you are currently running and have NVDA check if there's a newer version, and install it.

Check Current Version (About)   NVDA+N,H,A

 

Check for Updates   NVDA+N,H,C

Anthony,

You can always check to see if there is an update for NVDA by going to the
NVDA menu, move to Help and arrow up to "Check for Update" and press enter.

Re: Any accessible hex editors for screen reader users?

Hey,
I have an nice accessible hex editor on my hard drive, will post the name later.

Jackie,

My search was for ONLINE hex editors. There's nothing to download. Also,
the point was that someone else said they knew of a few but didn't have the
URLs for same, and often just seeing them again in a search list will turn
on the light bulb. That's why I posted it, as there really aren't that many
online ones available.

I agree that one should try to avoid the tedium of download and try to the
extent possible, but in the case of something as esoteric as this, if you're
looking for one that resides on your machine, that's likely going to be part
of the work if no one can identify an accessible one to begin with. It is a
PITA, but one that all of us, and for accessibility reasons or otherwise,
have had to slog through upon occasion when no one could give a short list.
And if you find yourself having to do this, posting later about what you
found that is accessible is a really, really good thing to do.

Even if you give the online ones a quick try, and identify a couple that are
accessible, posting which ones are is a really, really good thing to do.

Chrome issue reappearing in Firefox

Clarissa Mitchell
 

Hello.

A few weeks ago, I had reported about checkboxes not working with NVDA
and Chrome. Now, a similar thing is happening in Firefox. I'm in the
middle of filling out a survey, so I can't link the exact page here.
It has this weird thing where there's what I would assume is supposed
to be a slider, and usually I can access those with NVDA by pressing
insert+space and then using left and right arrows to move the slider.
However, this one doesn't appear to work that way. I press next, and
of course the same page comes back and it says "please select an
answer." But this time, instead of a slider with 1 through 7, they are
radio buttons. And no matter how many times I try, the spacebar will
not check any of them! Or at least, NVDA will not tell me if it is
checked. Press next without choosing an answer again, and it's back to
the weird slider thing. Then it goes back to radio buttons. If I use
JAWS, I can press enter and technically it will work, but I have no
way of knowing which answer I chose because all it says is choice #1
and choice #7, no in-between. And another strange thing with NVDA,
for some reason, the F key, which should cycle through form elements
on the page, isn't working at all. I don't know if this is even
reproduceable, because it seems to occur for me at random.


Re: Tony's enhancement add on.

By the way, Tony, you have an "e" missing in:

where appName is the name of the application where this keystroke is marked dynamic (or * to b marked dynamic in all applications)...


Not "b", but "be"...

Re: Tony's enhancement add on.

I have just copied the following description from github page for this add-on, which is also by the way auto packaged as help file for this add-on:


You can assign certain keystrokes to be dynamic. After issuing such a keystroke, NVDA will be checking currently focused window for any updates and if the line is updated, NVDA will speak it automatically. For example, certain keystrokes in text editors should be marked dynamic, such as Jump to bookmark, jump to another line and debugging keystrokes,such as step into/step over.
The format of dynamic keystrokes table is simple: every line contains a rule in the following format:
appName keystroke
where appName is the name of the application where this keystroke is marked dynamic (or * to b marked dynamic in all applications), andkeystroke is a keystroke in NVDA format, for example, control+alt+shift+pagedown.

Besides, it would be better if you can offer an example on the addon page.

e.g. how can I put the app name full title of the app? and how I type the hotkey, just alt+shift+a? any spaces?

how to separate between app name and hotkey?

So the story goes like this. I wanted my other add-on IndentNav to work in VSCode, but due to some technical difficulties, it turned out to be impossible. So I ended up implementing a VSCode extension by the same name. But there I discovered another problem. I made Alt+Down in that extension  to jump to  the next line with the same indentation  level, but it turns out that NVDA wouldn't automatically read that line, since NVDA is unaware of Alt+DownArrow keystroke and it simply passes it on to the application. So What I wanted to do is to be able to tell NVDA that Alt+DownArrow is a special keystroke in VSCode, and once this keystroke has been pressed, NVDA should wait for the state of VSCode to change and speak the updated state. I called this feature  dynamic keystrokes, since they change the state of application. This could've been implemented as VSCode app module, but I wanted to make it universal, since I saw some other potential uses. For example, in Notepad++ when you press F2 to jump to the next bookmark, same thing, you probably want to announce the new line the cursor just jumped to automatically. This is I believed is already solved by Notepad++ add-on, but this wasn't the case back when I conceived this feature. Another example is debuggin in Eclipse: there are many keystrokes, like F7, F8 that end up moving current line in the file and I just wanted this to be announced automatically. Hope this explains this feature better.

[Reason: Included the page text within the message.]

This was just posted on the community add ons site so I thought that I would share it here.

random aside, The mods can add the NV Access and NVDA community add on RSS feeds to this group if they wish, but below is the page.

This add on has a lot of enhancements bundled into 1 add on so it would be best to just read the add on description.

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

• Authors: Tony Malykh

• Download stable version

• NVDA compatibility: 2019.3

This add-on contains a number of small improvements to NVDA screen reader, each of them too small to deserve a separate add-on.

This add-on is only compatible with NVDA versions 2019.3 and above.

Enhanced table navigation commands

• Control+Alt+Home/End - jump to the first/last column in the table. • Control+Alt+PageUp/PageDown - jump to the first/last row in the table. • NVDA+Control+digit - jump to 1st/2nd/3rd/... 10th column in the table. • NVDA+Alt+digit - jump to 1st/2nd/3rd/... 10th row in the table. • NVDA+Shift+DownArrow - read current column in the table starting from current cell down.

Dynamic keystrokes

You can assign certain keystrokes to be dynamic. After issuing such a keystroke, NVDA will be checking currently focused window for any updates and if the line is updated, NVDA will speak it automatically. For example, certain keystrokes in text editors should be marked dynamic, such as Jump to bookmark, jump to another line and debugging keystrokes,such as step into/step over. The format of dynamic keystrokes table is simple: every line contains a rule in the following format: appName keystroke where appName is the name of the application where this keystroke is marked dynamic (or * to b marked dynamic in all applications), andkeystroke is a keystroke in NVDA format, for example, control+alt+shift+pagedown.

Real-time console output

This option is disabled by default and must be enabled in the settings.

This option makes NVDA to speak new lines immediately as they appear in console output, instead of queueing new speech utterances.

There is also an option to beep on command line updates - this would give you a better idea when new lines are printed in the console.

Beep when NVDA is busy

Check this option for NVDA to provide audio feedback when NVDA is busy. NVDA being busy does not necessarily indicate a problem with NVDA, but rather this is a signal to the user that any NVDA commands will not be processed immediately. NVDA volume • NVDA+Control+PageUp/PageDown - adjust NVDA volume. This option controls the volume of NVDA speech as well as all the other sounds and beeps produced by NVDA. The advantage of this option compared to adjusting volume of a speech synthesizer, is that it affects the volume of all the beeps proportionally. Blocking double insert keystroke In NVDA pressing Insert key twice in a row toggles insert mode in applications. However, sometimes it happens accidentally and it triggers insert mode. Since this is a special keystroke, it cannot be disabled in the settings. This add-on provides a way to block this keyboard shortcut. When double insert is blocked, insert mode can stil be toggled by pressing NVDA+F2 and then Insert. This option is disabled by default and must be enabled in the settings.

Re: I'm not able to update to the latest version of nvda!

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi David,

You can download NVDA 2019.3.1 from: https://www.nvaccess.org/download/ and install it over the top of your existing version.  Going to NVDA's help menu and choosing "Check for update" should find and download it though if you are using anything prior to NVDA 2019.3.1.

If it can't find it, and you'd like to help troubleshoot before simply updating, do feel free to firstly set your log to debug level (NVDA+control+g, then find "Log level" and set it to "debug" and enter), then check for updates, then press NVDA+F1 to open your log, select all, copy and paste into an email to me at info@...

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: NVDA Repeats text that belongs 2 different rows when navigating with arrow keys in Microsoft Excel

Hi Eilana,

I have seen this reported before - do you happen to navigate very quickly?  We have an open issue: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/9694  although I don't have a fix or a workaround at this stage.

Hello everybody

there is a real problem in Microsoft Excel  - I am using Microsoft Office 365 on Windows 10 .

·       in A1 the text is navigation menu

·       in A3 the text is tables

if I am navigating with the up and down arrow keys , sometimes NVDA repeats other text in their previous cell . so if I am on A1 in the Excel spreadsheet , and then press down arrow to move to A2 in the spreadsheet , NVDA will read the text in the  A1 on the spreadsheet.

I was wondering if the developers off NVDA no about this issue

I do suggest that blind users will pay attention carefully to their Excel spreadsheets with data tables.

the point was that someone else said they knew of a few but didn't have the
URLs for same, and often just seeing them again in a search list will turn
on the light bulb.  That's why I posted it, as there really aren't that many
online ones available.

I agree that one should try to avoid the tedium of download and try to the
extent possible, but in the case of something as esoteric as this, if you're
looking for one that resides on your machine, that's likely going to be part
of the work if no one can identify an accessible one to begin with.  It is a
PITA, but one that all of us, and for accessibility reasons or otherwise,
have had to slog through upon occasion when no one could give a short list.
And if you find yourself having to do this, posting later about what you
found that is accessible is a really, really good thing to do.

Even if you give the online ones a quick try, and identify a couple that are
accessible, posting which ones are is a really, really good thing to do.

Hi, Paul. XVI32 is accessible if memory serves--& sometimes it
actually doesn't. It's also a disk editor.

Brian v, just so you know, often these hex editors don't show the
screenreader the cursor, which is what prompted Paul's question. He's
trying, I'm pretty certain, to avoid the very tedious, time-consuming,
& bandwidth-sucking process of downloading something only to find the
cursor, for him, just isn't there. It's a real pita. So,
unfortunately, search engines aren't much help in this regard. HTH,
gentlemen.

I have heard of one or two sites which host accessible programs, but I
don't have their names or URLs unfortunately.

You didn't miss it, I had described its existence, but mentioned that I never used it.  Tried it out last night and it works like a charm (at least for all my accounts, which are all using IMAP access).

The reason I preached caution, and you may need to go back and rearrange your Sent folder, in particular, is that what you generally want as column order for inbox and any "incoming message box" you might sort/filter things to is different than you want on your Sent folder.  For instance, in any incoming box most of us are interested in the field that our e-mail client uses to show who a message is from (From in the case of Thunderbird, Sender in others).  But in your sent box, since it's you that sent it, the From field is always going to show you, and you don't care about that.  What generally gets shown in Sent is the To field, who you sent it to, which is the important bit on a sent message.

So be aware, that if you do a global change to all your mailboxes based upon your inbox, you will likely need to go back to the Sent box and tweak it, and it alone, to have the columns you want to be looking at, in the order you want them since some of those will not be the same as inbox.
