where can I get an older version of NVDA?


Chris Judd
 

Hi all,
 
Today, I accidently updated to the latest version of NVDA.  Is there a place I can go to download the version before this one?
Chris
 


Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Chris,

Are you unhappy with the new version?  We know it's not perfect, but I'd be keen to hear of anything that behaves worse than in the previous version?

Regards

Quentin.

Hi Quentin,


I, too, would be interested in a copy of NVDA 2017.4, because the classic Handy-Tech driver, available as an addon, doesn't work with the current version of NVDA. I know that NVDA has integrated a newer Driver. However, the current driver is not able to reconnect automatically and reliably when the display looses connection. The old driver, made available by HandyTech as an addon, would reconnect in less than a second. Currently, a disconnect occurs about every five minutes, and I would like to return to NVDA 2017.4 so that I can use the old driver via the HandyTech Classic addon again.

Could we ask exactly why you might need to do this?
Is it that an add on no longer works? If so then this needs to be reported to the list for add ons.

If this is the same reason as the originator of this thread, I think one of you needs to raise an issue on github about it. Not having such a display, I cannot help.

Thank you for the download link, Zara.


Brian, I have reported the problem to HandyTech and they will also contact the developers of NVDA to work together with them to resolve this.

I have installed NVDA-2017.4 after uninstalling the current version. Unfortunately, the Braille Driver from the new version still is being used, and the HandyTech driver via the Classic Addon doesn't work anymore. I assume when I uninstalled 2018.1, the new drivers weren't deleted, and now the older version of NVDA tries to use the newer drivers. Where do I have to go to delete them manually?

Yes its a strange one as I saw a lot of interaction on the github site about getting this right, and yet it seems to have gone wrong anyway. Not having the luxury of Braille displays, its all a bit of a black art to me.

Why do you want an older version? Just curious. If you still want it I hope someone can give the URL on the NV Access site assuming that 2017.4 is still up their.

It is still there.
However from what I've read if its Braille driver related you will need to remove the driver that comes with the new version manually first before reinstalling the old one.

from mack Zahra, I am using win 7 64 bit. sometimes newer versions of n v d a seem a little sluggish. why do you like 16.4.


 

nvda 2016.2 and newer versions are all very sluggish.
2017.1 is better, but nvda versions 2014 and 2015 had not such
sluggishness for me.
16.4 because iit released in one of the best day, i even helped in its
help translations and published its good news,
so, i love it and decided to use it forever.
