Windows 10 App Essentials 19.07.1 #addonrelease


Hi all,


Yesterday Windows 10 App Essentials 19.07.1 was released, but didn’t have time to announce it formally until now.


The just released version includes structural reorganization of how search fields are detected and handled by this add-on, which will serve as a way to test a change I’m thinking about submitting to NV Access for inclusion in a future NVDA release. Specifically, the change will let app modules detect search fields on their own instead of going through NVDA for majority of cases. This change also allows app module specific search field code to handle specialized scenarios. For now, this change is more visible in Microsoft Edge’s address omnibar (EdgeHTML version, that is).


Note for resident Windows Insiders: a development snapshot of Windows 10 app Essentials will be released later today that will do its best to detect and announce that you’ve got 19H2 variant of Windows 10 Version 1903 (in the form of an info log entry).
