Hi,

One way is using the source code or looking at the snapshots page:

http://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/snapshots/

The branch you might be interested in is “rc”.

Cheers,

Joseph

I disagree that there's no point in announcing it because it would save quite a few people from doing unnecessary downloads and installs.

However, if it's not announced, is there somewhere that one can look to determine that for oneself?  This was the second option and one I'd exercise if I knew where I could look on a consistent basis.

Hi,

In this case, it went directly from RC to stable version, and I think there’s no point in announcing that.

Cheers,

Joseph

Joseph,

         Is it possible to include in these announcements whether or not the RC (in this case RC1) went directly to actual release or not, or can you tell me where to find that information on the website?

         I tend to install the RCs and can see no point in installing the actual release in those instances where the candidate went straight to being the release itself without any changes in anything but name.

Hi,

I see. Try restarting NVDA (Control+Alt+N), then open your temp folder, then locate nvdaOld.log.

Just updated NVDA to 2016.2. I immediately noticed there are some

could get used to it, but right now it's a bit jarring. Also, words like
"message" seem to turn American halfway through. That might even be the
best way to describe the other weird pronunciation thing. It goes from
English accent to American for the last syllable and it sounds odd. I've

Re: eSpeak NG sounds a bit weird in some instances...

 

Yes espeak ng pronounces a few things harshly and things like ed this some a words and such are squished a lot and sounding really crappy.
Now enough of the old espeak exsists where I don't actually care but espeak was a robotic thing, I would still like these ffixed.
We are going through an issue in nvda skype group now where the persion language has loads of issues such as the punctiation keys not working, speed not working etc.
Myself I would prefur that we either reverted to old espeak and just used that or made it exactly like old espeak, if anything is to improve it sounds a bit more keynoteish but other than that hmmm.
If we could get the squishes out that would be fine.
I could get used to this to, its not a reading synth but even so.

Re: Meet NVDA 2016.2, bringing spelling error beep, grammar error detection and more to your work, home and everything in between #NVAccess #release

afrim maja <afrim.maja@...>
 

Hello,
I installed the latest 2016.2 version of nvda, and I am forced to say that it is coreating a lot of problems for me. First of all, the sluggishness and slowness of windows explorer are back, and it seems a very long journey will be until  this is fixed. Secondly, no improvement to the speed in microsoft word, in text processing has been made. It works still slow and the experience of it is really unsatisfying. The last problem, as far as I'm concerned, is the speed of NVDA which in general is a little slow compared to the previous version 2016.1.
I apologise for being harsh in my post, but I don't think I could express myself in another way.
cheers.

Re: Looking for a grammar program

Antony Stone
 

Firstly, please do not hijack a message thread about NVDA locking up with
Firefox and ask a totally unrelated question about grammar applications.
Please start a new message instead.

Secondly, what do you mean by "a grammar program"? Do you want something to
assess the grammar of your documents and tell you their readability scores
(for example, such as MS Office can do), or are you looking for something to
detect and possibly suggest corrections to grammatical mistakes?

Or maybe something else?


Antony.
