Hi Kerry,

You can run the snapshot - next or master - builds without affecting your
installed copy. When you run the file, it starts exactly the same as when
you install the regular copy of NVDA. You can at that point choose to
"continue running" or set it up as a portable version, either way it will
then only run when you choose, and your regular install of NVDA will be the
default when control+alt+n is pressed.

One advantage to installing the snapshot builds is that as they are released
fairly frequently, when a new build is released, it will prompt you to
download and update it, just as your installed copy of NVDA likely did to
upgrade to NVDA 2016.3.

The page at: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues lists all the known
issues and where they are at in terms of being rectified, and also is where
you can submit any issues that you come across.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hi everyone,



Joseph, thank you so much for your wonderfully evocative announcement
and information, and indeed thank you for everything you have given,
and continue to give the community.



Nasrin,

The system requirements for NVDA haven't changed, that is per:
http://www.nvaccess.org/about/nvda-features/



"NVDA runs on both 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Microsoft Windows XP
or later. NVDA has no additional hardware requirements beyond those of
the operating system and requires around 50 MB of disk space."



And Kerry, we would love to have you on board as a tester!



The "beta" builds are available from:
http://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/snapshots/



As the page indicates, "Next" are what you might call "alpha" releases
- new code and new changes and no guarantee everything works as it
should.
"Master" are features which have already been tested in "next" builds
and are a little more polished and more likely to end up in a final
version of NVDA and we encourage wider testing of these builds.



Kind regards



Quentin.

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

Facebook on Chrome with NVDA

 

Hi all,

When using Facebook with Google Chrome, I noticed that, while typing in any edit fields, particularly the chat message box and the status update box, NVDA won't read the character that I've deleted. This occurred only on Facebook, I tried with Outlook.com and on this list and NVDA can read the characters I've deleted just fine.

Is anyone else who are using Chrome experiencing this issue? Is this a bug with Chrome or NVDA?

Re: you are invited to upgrade to NonVisual Desktop Access 2016.3

Hi Nasrin,

I'm not sure if I've misunderstood you, but the requirements from the user guide: http://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html?#toc8 are unchanged as well:

2. System Requirements

  • Operating Systems: all 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 (including Server operating Systems)
    • For Windows XP 32-bit, NVDA requires Service Pack 2 or higher.
    • For Windows Server 2003, NVDA requires Service Pack 1 or higher.
    • For Windows Vista, NVDA requires Service Pack 2 and the KB2763674 update. Both of these should be installed if all available updates are applied via Windows Update.
  • Memory: 256 mb or more of RAM
  • Processor speed: 1.0 ghz or above
  • About 90 MB of storage space.

Now to notifying you when NVDA 2016.4 is released, that we certainly can do.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: you are invited to upgrade to NonVisual Desktop Access 2016.3

Hi Kerry,

You can run the snapshot - next or master - builds without affecting
your installed copy. When you run the file, it starts exactly the
same as when you install the regular copy of NVDA. You can at that
point choose to "continue running" or set it up as a portable version,
either way it will then only run when you choose, and your regular
install of NVDA will be the default when control+alt+n is pressed.

One advantage to installing the snapshot builds is that as they are
released fairly frequently, when a new build is released, it will
prompt you to download and update it, just as your installed copy of
NVDA likely did to upgrade to NVDA 2016.3.

The page at: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues lists all the
known issues and where they are at in terms of being rectified, and
also is where you can submit any issues that you come across.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hi everyone,



Joseph, thank you so much for your wonderfully evocative announcement and
information, and indeed thank you for everything you have given, and
continue to give the community.



Nasrin,

The system requirements for NVDA haven't changed, that is per:
http://www.nvaccess.org/about/nvda-features/



"NVDA runs on both 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Microsoft Windows XP or
later. NVDA has no additional hardware requirements beyond those of the
operating system and requires around 50 MB of disk space."



And Kerry, we would love to have you on board as a tester!



The "beta" builds are available from:
http://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/snapshots/



As the page indicates, "Next" are what you might call "alpha" releases - new
code and new changes and no guarantee everything works as it should.
"Master" are features which have already been tested in "next" builds and
are a little more polished and more likely to end up in a final version of
NVDA and we encourage wider testing of these builds.



Kind regards



Quentin.

works much better for me and I think my husband may be tempted to use it
himself. He just has the little issue of Station Playlist Studio and
Station Playlist Streamer which will be the things that hold him back I
suspect.



You guys rock!!!!!! As for testers, I’d be very pleased to help with any
testing necessary. I’m probably not as geeky as some testers on this list
but as someone who is an extremely advanced computer user and uses their
computer for working from home and for leisure purposes it’s in my best
interests to ensure that screenreader accessibility is not just limited to
those that can afford the expensive stuff. I’m also very very excited to

I’ve longed for for a long time and given I can’t get any support from

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


I recently upgraded to NVDA 2016.3.  I would like to say thank you to all the developers who work on this project.  I have not found any bugs as yet and some wonderful improvements. 


Keep up the good work.

·         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.

Re: adventures with: append text

Brian, also by me is happened something so but not connected with sound. Yes,

Artin,and just here's the problem. With control + e, I receive information, which actually is given by resource monitor. And I need very much append text, that's why I uninstalled resource monitor, and now is all OK. But at the same time I also like resource monitor, although I don't particulary understand the proposed of it information.

   Hi group and developpers!

A wonderful add-on otherwise! It helps me much. But I can't understand why it refuses my friendship!

Just it happens sometings strange enough. And it happens second time by the way. When I've installed first time the add-on, it works very well. But at the second time I used it: control + shift + e, announced me data about my computer and control + shift + v, announced me the microsoft word's version I work with. I uninstalled the add-on and reInstalled it. The same thing: first It worked well and now: no results. I thank in advance for any ideas.

Hi everyone,

Joseph, thank you so much for your wonderfully evocative announcement and information, and indeed thank you for everything you have given, and continue to give the community.

Nasrin,
The system requirements for NVDA haven't changed, that is per: http://www.nvaccess.org/about/nvda-features/

"NVDA runs on both 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Microsoft Windows XP or later. NVDA has no additional hardware requirements beyond those of the operating system and requires around 50 MB of disk space."

And Kerry, we would love to have you on board as a tester!

The "beta" builds are available from: http://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/snapshots/

As the page indicates, "Next" are what you might call "alpha" releases - new code and new changes and no guarantee everything works as it should.  "Master" are features which have already been tested in "next" builds and are a little more polished and more likely to end up in a final version of NVDA and we encourage wider testing of these builds.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: Slightly OT but gmail pop question about downloading

Ketan Kothari
 

Hi friends,

I am apparently misunderstood. My problem is not to do with pop or
IMAP. The issue of pop is settled. The issue is that if while
downloading a chain of mails, the connection breaks, then there is
problem in downloading mails in a bunch. I know that there is some
procedure whereby you could come back to normal download process
whereby you can download a bigger bunch of mails. This is my
problem. I hope I am clearer this time.

Thank you.

Subject: Re: [nvda] Slightly OT but gmail pop question about downloading


Hi,
Brian Vogel wrote such a good message the other day explain IMAP verses POP email downloading. Here is what I can remember.
IMAP allows you to read your emails in all of your devices, and they are kept on the Gmail site until you delete one of your emails on one of your devices. That is what is so great about IMAP. Now, with POP, as soon as you download your emails on to one client, the emails go away in the Gmail site. This does not allow you to download your emails onto a second device, because the emails are gone in the Gmail web site already, just after downloading them to one device. With IMAP, the emails stay in the Gmail web site even if you download the emails on to ten devices and start deleting them. So, IMAP is so much better than POP. Now, here is the thing about IMAP. With IMAP, you cannot make message rules, filters, in your client. You have to do all of that on the Gmail site. You have to get on the Internet and get into your Gmail account and make the message rules there. When you do that, Your client will automatically work according to the message rules that you set up on the Gmail web site. That is so important. With POP, that is when you create the message rules in the client. With Gmail, just get on the Gmail web site and find the settings link and press enter. Now, find the setting that says IMAP or POP and press enter and activate the IMAP button. This will cause Gmail to be delivered to your devices in IMAP form. I hope that helps, and clears some things up. By the way, It is not just Gmail that works this way, Everything works the same way that I describe with Yahoo mail, Hotmail, or what ever email service you are using. Also, the Gmail web site, works like an on line Google App like Google Docs. You can use the on line Gmail site by turning on focus mode with NVDA, and totally use key commands with the on line site. NvDA works great by using Google's key commands with NVDA. When you do this, you get an experience just like using any other Google App. Just type:
mail.google.com
Get into focus mode, and you can press the question mark to bring up all of the key commands you can use on the gmail app, I will call it. It is an on line app, just like Google Docs. I did not know this until the other day. Check that out as well.
Take care,
David Moore

Well I cannot getyour orignal method to do anything at all, so I'm a bit confused nw. I've always used either the contaxt menu or control d for this function. Incidentally there is an add on for 10 that can make the menus non ribbon but it seems to be a w one way street, in that once its done there is nno uninstall to come back so I suspect its a registry hack, so I'll not publish details as I'll get the blame if it screws anyone up!

Brian,


I tried the ctrl+d shortcut and it works as it should and the folder stays open.


The ribbons method of deleting files also works as it should and the folder stays open.


this problem only occurs if I select a file and then press the d key.


thanks.

Hi,


It is not an empty folder, I select a file first and then it happens
when deleting the file using the delete key.

Odd, do you ever use file explorer for other things (press Windows+e)
and have you noticed any other issues?

Also which version of Windows are you running? I'm using Rhett latest
fast insider bold of Windows 10. I haven't specifically looked lately,
but I know I've had various Windows, mostly settings Windows, which
either don't respond or close unexpectedly in various builds. I wonder
if this is something similar?

Regards

Quentin

Hi Quinton,

Actually, I am talking about the downloads folder in the "this
pc". I don't have any trouble with my browser which is also the
latest update to Firefox.

Thanks.

Hi Dan,

By downloads folder, do you mean the "This PC - Downloads"
folder in File Explorer, or the downloads folder in your browser?

If that latter, which browser are you using?

I'm using the latest version of Windows 10 insider build
(actually correction - 14905.1000 - the latest fast build has
downloaded and wants to restart my machine), NVDA 2016.3rs2
and Firefox 48.0.2 - I can't reproduce your bug at the moment,
but I'll try again once windows restarts.

Regards

Quentin.

Literally, I select a file in the downloads folder and
then press the delete key. It does delete the file but it
also closes the folder. What a pain!


I am running windows 10 most recent updates and NVDA
2016.3-RC2.


Thanks.
