Weather Plus 4.5 14.09.2017 update available


Adriano Barbieri
 

 Hi to every one,

Changes in this version:
* Improved update algorithm; now the link to update is directly read from manifest url.
In this way, Weather Plus should always find the base url even in the event of a change.

Weather Plus can update alone, however, it is possible to download
manually from the following links:
http://www.nvda.it/files/plugin/weather_plus4.5.nvda-addon
or from page:
http://www.nvda.it/weather-plus/
or from page:
https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/weatherPlus.en.html

Cheers
Adriano

Lisa, in that case, if it will let you, I'd install the update again, even if it tells you it's running the latest version. The main version number is the same, 4.5, but it is definitely an update. Try that first.
If that doesn't do it, uninstall the add-on, then install the latest version. Of course you'll have to set your cities again after, but hopefully the first idea works before resorting to that.

Hi Travis,

I just tried doing the update through NVDA's menu and was told an update is not available. Should I just try to uninstall and then reinstall from this point then?

Oh, and my husband, Marcus, who knows you from a previous marriage of his that you were a guest of says hi.

Hi Lisa


is this the first time you have used this add on? If it is and it is installed use the nvda key + letter n to get into nvda preferences. Arrow to general settings then down to the weather plus add on.


n

When you get to the add on a sub menu will come off it and say nset and manage your settings press the enter key on it.

the next screen will give you a whole eahp of options. The very first place where it lands will let you put in a town or ciy etc. In my case i say put hawera then tabbed to a button that says Test
This testing the validity of city woeID entry and find the name of city assigned, or v then pressed the space bar. It will then come up with some results. You can then arrow down the results and when you find the one you want use the tab key so it lands on the ok button then press the space bar.

it will then take you back to where you typed in the name of the town or city tab once it will land you on a button that will give you details to make sure it is the correct town or city tab again and it will give you the option to add it to the list press the space bar on it.

You can also keep on tabbing and there will be other options to choose from just use the space bar to check or uncheck the boxes you want to hear. make sure you tab to the ok button then press the space bar for it to take affect.

You can also preset that place as your default when you press the nvda key + letter W

You can also add more places by repeating the steps to add more places.

If you say added 4 you can get to them quickly by pressing the nvda key + ctrl key + shift key + letter W then arrow down the list to the one you want to hear from with nvda key + W.

hope the above helps.

Hah, there's two Travis types on here, the one you replied to isn't the one that was at the wedding, that would be me.

Drop me a line off list, and I'll be happy to continue the discussion.

Hi Lisa,
 
Here's what I'd do. The servers were recently changed on the updates, so, for slightly older versions, updates either won't download, or the program says there are none.
Download the latest version from the first link in Adriano's recent email:
It shouldn't take long. When you have it, install it by pressing enter on the file. When NVDA tells you that a version already exists, tab to the yes button to override the previous installation. When you are prompted to, and after you restart NVDA, you will then have the latest version.
I just saw that Gene New Zealand gave you detailed instructions on how to set it up if you are a first time user.
Hope this helps, and things finally get sorted.
I actually don't remember Marcus, but let's talk about that off list, but tell him hi for me too.

Hi Adriano,


I noticed in the latest update that in the English System measurements, the period pronounced in English as dot has been replaced by the comma (,).  For example, the barometric pressure is reading as 29,29 rather than 29.29.


Incidentally, the barometric pressure discrepancies of about .5 MM of mercury is still prevalent and has been without change for a year now.

Ron, the us is likely the only country that still uses the period as a number separator anymore.  Many many countries use the comma as a separator, so the us is in the minority here.  To me, it makes more sense to use a period for decimals, and commas for digit separation, but that's probably because that's what I've seen all my life.  I'm sure it would be different if I'd been raised in Europe or some place similar that does things backwards. :)

Hi Adriano,


I noticed in the latest update that in the English System measurements, the period pronounced in English as dot has been replaced by the comma (,).  For example, the barometric pressure is reading as 29,29 rather than 29.29.


Incidentally, the barometric pressure discrepancies of about .5 MM of mercury is still prevalent and has been without change for a year now.

Suggesting that "the US is likely the only country that still uses the period

According to the wikipedia article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decimal_point
these are the countries which use a dot as the decimal separator:

Australia

Botswana
British West Indies
Brunei
Cambodia
Canada (when using English)
China, People's Republic of

I didn't say it was the only country, I said it was likely the only country.  Note the likely word.  That means that it's possible that the us was the only one doing so, not a solid fact. I knew that Canada used it, (but as the article pointed out, only in the english speaking parts, not in the french speaking portion), so I discounted that, because it wasn't the whole country doing so.

Admittedly, I wasn't aware of most of the other countries listed, but that's precisely why I said likely instead of definitely.

Similar to the metric system? Though the metric makes more sense, with everything done by tens, I still like my twelve point ruler. LOL!

How do people differentiate between separation of large numbers for clarity VS decimal points if commas are used for both?
