Yes, mIRC (also known as mIRC4Life) is still around and there have been 4 updates to it just this year. Also, ChatZilla add on is available for Firefox and it works very well with nvda.

Re: Trouble installing 2016.3

You don't have to remove antivirus programs if they cause installation problems.  To make things much easier in future, you can learn to disable the program temporarily.  Some programs require that antivirus programs be inactive during installation.  I have never heard of NVDA requiring such and if your antivirus program were blocking it, you should be notified by the program.
 
I don't know why you are having this problem but I'm trying to prevent you from doing a lot of unnecessary work in future if you think your antivirus program is causing a problem.

Subject: [nvda] Trouble installing 2016.3

I am having a problem downloading NVDA 2016.3 version on windows 10 64 bit.

when I download through NVDA it downloads but does not install.
when I try to run the setup file manually nothing happens, at all, not even an UAC message or something.

when I try to update via Ninite it says the update is not supported.

when I try to install NVDA with ninite after uninstalling it, Ninite gives me an access is denied error.

Idid have AVG but uninstalled it. I realized the other day there are still backround processes running even though I uninstalled it with Revo uninstaller making sure to delete all the leftover files, then going in to regedit and deleting the entire AVG category... but it still will not install. Older versions work just fine. It is just 2016.3 that will not work.

I am currently using 2016.1. I have AVG uninstalled, as well as AVAST.

It's a bug with NVDA and the anniversary update.
Possible workarounds to not hearing typed characters is to type them
first, then use review cursor (e.g. Numpad 5 for current word, Numpad
1 and 3 to move to previous and next character, etc.). You can also
use notepadanother desktop program like Notepad, then paste it into

To find the add on, go to the add on manager, and tab to the button that
says 'get add ons'. Press enter and Edge or whatever browser you're using
will open. Look for the Windows 10 App Essential add on and download the
stable version. Also if you're like me and had problem where NVDA won't read

typed characters, try uninstalling and re-installing NVDA. I remember I came

across that when I upgraded direct from Windows 7 to 10.

Does it install from the official download OK?
 I gather you are using that site that bundles stuff together, if its any consolation i never did get that to work reliably for anything. I'm going to put on the win 10 machine and try updating a portable version of an older copy and will let you know what happens.

Dear citizens of the NVDA land:

 

Yes, it is official: one of the ministers of NVDA land, a certain Mr. Teh, has just ordered the horsemen to announce a good news throughout the land:

 

NVDA 2016.3 is officially out:

http://www.nvaccess.org/post/announcing-nvda-2016-3-release/

 

So what’s new, changed and fixed:

 

From RC2: no changes.

 

Highlights:

 

·        You can now disable individual add-ons.

·        NVDA is more cofmpatible with Windows 10 Anniversary Update (version 1607). Among the things included are return of browse mode in Edge, announcing newer UAC prompts, ability to navigate PDF documents in Edge and more.

·        NVDA+F9/NVDA+F10 command behavior change is now official.

·        Color announcement has been simplified.

·        NVDA no longer announces “associated draft” in Outlook 2016.

·        NVDA can now announce line spacing in Microsoft Word.

·        Various enhancements.

 

A sneak preview at 2016.4: three game-changing features will be served as part of Thanksgiving Party this November:

 

·        Ever wanted to hear line indentation via beeps? You can do that starting in November.

·        Want to experience the next chapter in assistive technology history? Or would you like to be one of the first ones to experience a combination of a free screen reader and a low-cost braille display? Stay tuned, as this combination will change your life in November.

·        Needed an assistant in persuading web or app developers about accessibility needs of screen reader users? The wait is almost over: let NVDA volunteer for you from November onwards.

 

The rest: let’s just say the ministers at NVDA land are holding council every day, looking over this land and thinking about the needs of citizens and planning the next great adventure for the people of this land.

 

Personally, I’m excited to see what NVDA can do in opening opportunities for many people, particularly for those who’re using Windows 10. On behalf of people who’ve contributed to NVDA 2016.3 development, I wish you best in your endeavor as you use NVDA 2016.3 in various places (work, school, for fun and in unexpected places). Also, NVDA 2016.3 release announcement will be my final NVDA release announcement (on this list), as I believe the community is ready to welcome new reporters.

 

Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi again,

Right, so after getting my new laptop, upgraded to Windows 10 and then performed a clean reinstallation of Windows and installed NVDA and everything, along with Vocalizer and the Windows 10 App Essential add on, the calculator seems to work for a while but then after a reboot, which took longer because Windows was installing some updates I think, the calculator no longer work properly again, NVDA refuse to announce the keys that I've pressed.
