I'm just as guilty as anyone for having extended it, but I'm now locking this topic as it really has nothing to do with NVDA and I think all of the necessary details have been covered.

If additional conversation regarding new Edge is needed it should occur either on the Chat Subgroup or the Windows 10 for Screen Reader Users group.

Hi Group,

I think I finally got this sorted out.  I used the old trick for opening the apps folder and I see two Microsoft Edge references. The one I had a shortcut to was just called Microsoft Edge.  The one I now have a shortcut to is called Microsoft Edge DEV.  This is the new Edge. I don't know why it says DEV and at the same time under the help/about dialogue it says Microsoft 83.XXX Official build.'

Well at least I'm on the right track now to using the correct version.  Boy do I feel dum!

Maybe I accidentally deleted the new Edge shortcut.  If I do have the new edge installed, how do I distinguish it from the old one in terms of finding the executable under the program files or program files (X86) folder structure to reestablish the proper shortcut to the new Edge?

My apologies!

Hi Brian,

I am thoroughly confused.  I again tried these keystrokes on two systems and they do not work.  The alt + X keystroke works. It must be the correct version of Edge, because the interface is very Chrome-like.

What gives!!!

No, Ron, it's not.  There is no ALT+X shortcut in new Edge.  Microsoft always publishes its keyboard shortcuts for its products, and new Edge is no exception:

ALT+F or ALT,DownArrow will bring up the Edge menu (just like it brings up the Chrome menu, Brave Menu, and all other Chromium-based browser menus).

You have something really, really weird going on, and that needs to be addressed.  But ALT+X is not a valid keyboard shortcut for new Edge, when working correctly, period.  It does nothing and is not documented as a keyboard shortcut for Chromium-based Edge.

Ron, the issue here is that you have the Dev (development) channel new Edge installed, which goes in alongside Edge original without supplanting it.  This is by design, since those using any one of the Edge insider channels (Beta, Dev, or Canary) could very well be wanting to test out one of the upcoming versions of new Edge without yet replacing original Edge.  The stable version of new Edge has not pushed out to all that many machines yet.  They're allowing people to download it and install it if they want it now.

I have had no problems at all with Edge Dev and wouldn't hesitate for one second to recommend you keep using it.  If you want a desktop shortcut, follow these instructions:  Adding Desktop Shortcuts Under Windows 10 or Bill White's step-by-step instructions, which I'll add at the end, since what I'm about to say is common to either method.

Once you've done the opening of shell:appsfolder, search for the shortcut noted as Microsoft Edge Dev.  That's the one you want on your desktop and/or pinned to quick launch, or anywhere else you want to be using new Chromium-based Edge.

-----------------

Creating a Desktop Shortcut for a Program/App Under Windows 10

             by Bill White

1. Go to your desktop and make sure nothing is selected. To do this: press CONTROL plus SPACE, then JAWS (or other screen reader) should say, “Not Selected.”  If you need to, hit CTRL+SPACE again.

2. Press Applications/Menu Key or SHIFT plus F10, and Arrow down to the New Submenu, then press ENTER.

3. ARROW down to Shortcut then press ENTER.

4. When it asks you to type the location of the shortcut, type:  %windir%\explorer.exe shell:Appsfolder

5. TAB to the Next button then press ENTER.

6. When it asks for a name for the shortcut, press the DELETE key then type:  AppsFolder

7. TAB to the Finish button, then press ENTER.

8. Now, on your desktop, you will have a shortcut that reads:  AppsFolder

9. If you press ENTER on this shortcut, a special Windows system folder will open containing all of your apps.

10. Now, create any shortcut for an app as follows:

11. Press ENTER on the AppsFolder icon.

12. Use First-letter Navigation to find and select the app for which you want the shortcut on your desktop.

13. Hit the Applications/Menu Key, or SHIFT+F10, down arrow to Create Shortcut, then press ENTER.

14. When it tells you that a shortcut can’t be created here, and it asks if you want a shortcut on the desktop, press ENTER on Yes.

15. That’s it. Now you will have a shortcut for your desired app on the desktop, along with the AppsFolder shortcut, which you can use later when you need to create another desktop shortcut.

Hi Group,

When I use the search under start menu and type in Microsoft Edge, it brought up the new edge.  Here is the version number under the help/about page:
Microsoft Edge is up to date.Version 83.0.478.10 (Official build) dev (64-bit)

So I did have it installed after all and I apparently deleted the wrong shortcut from the desktop.  I can't seem to find how to create a shortcut for the new Edge on the desktop.

Wow what a bonar I pulled: that's old first ward Buffalo New York lingo for what a terrible mistake!'

Then I wonder where folks got old Edge documentation and claim that it is the official list of keystrokes… The only explanation is the one we have – old Edge, something people should abandon and move on.

Ron,

           You don't have it installed, at least you don't have the stable version installed, as if you did you would no longer have any access whatsoever to original edge.  Please just go to the Edge Download Page, activate the Download for Windows 10 button, and follow the install procedure.

I am not going to keep arguing with people about this.  If you have new Edge, ALT+F,B,M will open the About Microsoft Edge tab, and you will get a version number that looks like:

Version 83.0.478.10 (Official build) dev (64-bit)

It will be lower than 83 if you are not on the Dev channel, as Joseph has noted the current stable version will be 81 dot something.

There is nothing that says 18363 that has any connection to the new Edge, period.

Re: how can I set symbol pronounciation for special case?

 
Edited

Sam,

          I would do this using the speech dictionary and a regular expression for the item.  If I am safe in assuming that the thing with the prime in front of it will always be a single letter, preceded by a space, and you are not using single quotes to enclose phrases (at least not commonly), then try this:

1. NVDA+P,D,D  to open NVDA Preferences, Speech Dictionaries, Default Dictionary
2. Activate the Add Button
3. In pattern, place the following:  ([a-zA-Z])'
4. In replacement, place the following:  \1 prime
5. In comment make whatever note you'd like, I said mathematical prime
6. Don't check the case insensitive checkbox.
7. Activate the Regular Expression radio button.

If you do use single quotes frequently to enclose phrases, e.g., 'this phrase enclosed with single quotes,' I can try to get more sophisticated and use lookback in the regular expression to avoid instance for single quoted phrases.   As the regular expression I gave is currently constructed, it will match only a single character that's a lowercase or uppercase letter followed by the prime single quote.

I tested this in Notepad and its working.

Because, as my last message, and Joseph's too, note:  You do not have the new Edge.

This is one of the reasons why I beg, plead, and nag for people to look up their software version numbers.  Asserting you have something (and that's any you, not just you, Ron) and verifying what you have are two different things.

If you want the new stable Edge then you need to go to the Microsoft Edge Page, activate the Download for Windows 10 button, and go through the rest of the process for installing it.

I  have the new Edge build  18363

And alt X  is working fine for me here.

Incidentally alt F and alt down arrow has never worked for me since I got the new Edge.

Indeed you are.  And if you will not take the word of two different subject matter experts, nor take the effort to verify what you have, there is nothing more to be done.

You do not have the new Edge.  It is that simple.

Because, as my last message, and Joseph's too, note:  You do not have the new Edge.

This is one of the reasons why I beg, plead, and nag for people to look up their software version numbers.  Asserting you have something (and that's any you, not just you, Ron) and verifying what you have are two different things.

If you want the new stable Edge then you need to go to the Microsoft Edge Page, activate the Download for Windows 10 button, and go through the rest of the process for installing it.

Hi Brian,

I am thoroughly confused.  I again tried these keystrokes on two systems and they do not work.  The alt + X keystroke works. It must be the correct version of Edge, because the interface is very Chrome-like.

What gives!!!

No, Ron, it's not.  There is no ALT+X shortcut in new Edge.  Microsoft always publishes its keyboard shortcuts for its products, and new Edge is no exception:

Keyboard shortcuts in Microsoft Edge

ALT+F or ALT,DownArrow will bring up the Edge menu (just like it brings up the Chrome menu, Brave Menu, and all other Chromium-based browser menus).

You have something really, really weird going on, and that needs to be addressed.  But ALT+X is not a valid keyboard shortcut for new Edge, when working correctly, period.  It does nothing and is not documented as a keyboard shortcut for Chromium-based Edge.
