Re: NVDA updates

 

Hi,

Think of NVDA update mechanism as similar to how Chrome and Firefox updates themselves. Each NVDA branch (or a channel) is meant for different groups of users, and as such, they come with varying levels of stability:

  • Source code level: these are used by people writing new NVDA features or testing bug fixes before being reviewed by NV Access people for inclusion in NVDA.
  • Alpha (similar to Chrome/Edge Canary): this is used by developers and testers to make sure new features are working as intended and to catch bugs early. Not all features included in a given alpha build are included in final NVDA release.
  • Beta (similar to dev and beta channels for Chrome): used by early adopters and add-on authors to test upcoming features and to make add-ons compatible.
  • RC (release candidate): used to test NVDA in real-world situations in hopes of catching last-minute issues.
  • Stable: self-explanatory.

 

To mark a given branch as “under development”, all channels except RC and stable builds will emit a tone if an error requiring attention from users and developers occur. Also, moving from one branch to the next (particularly if moving from stable version to alpha/beta) comes with risks, including incompatible add-ons and bugs due to feature maturity.

Cheers,

Joseph

Why does NVDA only look for updates of the type the user last installed?I am thinking of RCs and stable installs. Why not look for any and let the user decide if they want to install them or not?

 

Thanks.

I think both approaches—yours and Gene’s—would be useful, for not everybody using NVDA—old or new—is on this list.

Hi,

The older version links will be posted to this mailing list. I also noted that these older version links will be up until 30 days after 2019.3 stable version is released, so at least until March 2020.

But how will those who want to know about them know where to look?  Are you going to have a link on the add-ons page directing people to a page where older versions of add-ons compatible with older versions of NVDA can be found?  The links on that page can lead to wherever the add-ons actually are but there should be an obvious way for older users to know where to find such add-ons on the add-ons home page, such as a link to where they are listed.

Tiflotecnia's Vocalizer wanting to verify the license with new version?

Gerardo Corripio
 

I’ve several Spanish-speaking friends with legal Tiflotecnia Vocalizer voices, who when they want to upgrade their’s, it with NVDA2019.3 RC, a dialogue about verifying license pops up, and I worry that it’ll happen here at my end when the time comes to upgrade! What is recommended if this arises?

last version to support NVDA
2019.2.1 - a March release will require support for 2019.3 and later.
* StationPlaylist and Windows 10 App Essentials: 20.02 release for
these add-ons will be made available within 48 hours after 2019.3
stable is released. These add-ons require NVDA 2019.3 to install and
function, and starting from 20.02, Windows 10 App Essentials will also
require Windows 10 Version 1903 (May 2019 Update/build 18362).



As for other add-ons such as Resource Monitor, no 20.02 releases for
them at the moment; note that all of them require NVDA 2019.3.



Special notice for DictationBridge users: version 1.1, compatible with
NVDA 2019.3, will be released by end of this week.



Related to this: if you visit community add-ons website and select any
of my add-ons, you'll see a link to download an older release
supporting NVDA
2019.2.1 or earlier. These links will be removed 30 days after NVDA
2019.3 stable version is released.



Cheers,

Joseph

Hi all,



NVDA 2019.3 RC (release candidate) was declared, one of the final betas
that
will be identical to upcoming NVDA 2019.3 stable release unless critical
issues emerge. Therefore I hereby announce the schedule for add-on releases
from me that are NVDA 2019.3 compatible (or requires NVDA 2019.3):



* Add-on Updater: version 20.02 will hit the air tomorrow. This is a
mandatory update for all Add-on Updater users. Feature set is identical to
latest version with localization updates and makes provision to support
future NVDA releases. Also, 20.02.x will be the last version to support
NVDA
2019.2.1 - a March release will require support for 2019.3 and later.

Re: showing underlines, bold and italic in word with nvda

Brian K. Lingard
 

Dear Cecelia & List:

Yes, use control plus I to toggle Italics on or off,
Control plus B toggles Bold on/off.
Control plus U toggles underline on/off.

Other accelerator keys are:

Control plus R for right justify.
Control plus L for left justify.
Control plus E for Center.
Control plus J for full justification. I think NVDA
can be configured to read text with these attributes in a different voice.

Word also has strike-out and red line attributes. When the author approves your changes, there is a generate function to delete the strike-outs, insert the red-lined text etc.

Re: showing underlines, bold and italic in word with nvda

Do you know how to use the NVDA menus and dialogs?  You can learn a lot about the program, including possibly useful features you wouldn't know about otherwise.  I'll tell you the shortcut method to get to the specific dialog you want but do you know how to look around in general?
 
If you look around, use cancel, not ok, when you are finished to make sure you didn't change something without intending to.
 
Use the command control NVDA d to open document formatting.  You will find, by tabbing around, a lot of settings for what can be displayed, or turned off.

NVDA not so laggy on File Explorer

David Griffith
 

Just to say that my initial feedback on installing NVDA 19.3 RC2 is that there has been a dramatic improvement in the lag that plagued  previous installations of NVDA when trying to open large file directories in Windows file Explorer (Windows 10 19.09 ).  This problem appears to have pretty much disappeared so far. I used to have to use the work around of loading Narrator to review file names in a windows explorer  window until NVDA would catch up and start talking again.

This was not a problem with other screenreaders.

It appears now that is also not a problem with NVDA – I don’t know if this was an anticipated improvement but I thought I would report it anyway.

Cearbhall,

Thank you, we're glad you like it and it's working well!  Do let us know if you run into any problems!

Kind regards

Quentin,

I downloaded and installed the RC and I am very pleased so far. The licence agreement at the start and the automatic speech was very impressive. I actually listened to the whole agreement!

I had not seen the speech control and selection before so this looks new to me. It gives so many choices that it should be possible for a comfortable voice to be found. I prefer Eloquence and had been running the add-on up to now. I have achieved almost the same voice that I am used to so I'll see how that settles down for my ear!

Congratulations to the whole team and thanks for all the hard work. 

All the best,

Can I please double check - did you check with 2019.3 RC1 or RC2?  We put out RC1 last night, then noticed an issue with translations and that's why RC2 came out so quickly - but there were a few hours in between.  If you used RC1, please try again with RC2 and let me know (or let me know that you were using RC2).

Kind regards

I tested on Vietnamese interface, and see that the interface translation is not up to date. For example, name of the vision category used the translated string I commited afew week ago, and I changed the tirm a few day later. This category also exists some untranslated string, but I've translated the interface 100%.
Don't know if this will be merged later or not so I report here. Will check and continue reportign if there are any errors.

Re: NVDA 2019.3 RC 2 is released

Hi Raha, I'm not familiar with this add-on, is it listed on https://addons.nvda-project.org/index.en.html ?

NVDA 2019.3 has required most addons to update to Python 3 in order to remain compatible.  You may need to download a new version of the add-on in order to use it with NVDA 2019.3  If there isn't a new version, I would encourage you to write to the add-on author to encourage them to update their add-on.

The add-ons we know the status of are listed on https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/nvdapy3.en.html  

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hi Quentin. I updated my NVDA last night. things are all good. but
there's a useful addon named "say product name and version".
unfortunately, it's stopped working since NVDA 2019.3 has come into
being. I hope this helpful addon will soon be fixed.
Do take care and Good luck.
