Hi. Joseph>
there's just a little tip here. if you go to the same place through
startmenu\settings\system\about, it will be well supported by NVDA.
but if you want to have access to the same place and items through
hitting an alt+enter while landing this PC, NVDA will just keep quiet,
in such a case, as you press tab, you won't move at all. moreover,
nothing special is read out to you. but settings. it really sounds
screwy, because if you visit the same area, from
settings\system\about, there will be no problems at all. as you tab,
NVDA will ordinarily move forward and read out the focused items in a
clear manner.
would you mind giving it a try to learn more about it?
Take care.

I've just updated to the latest version. "20H2" I've just discovered a
problem with the latest version of NVDA. as you do an alt+enter on This PC,
you won't be able to see the same system properties you could previously
see. instead, there will be settings which is not mainly supported by NVDA.
you can't read the information shown via NVDA. as I switched to JAWS, it did
much better. JAWS nearly read most information existed there. but NVDA kept
quiet. object navigation didn't do the trick either.
I hope Josef will fix it as soon as possible.
a little patch in windows app essentials might do the trick.
Take care.

As I said, don’t worry if you don’t get it, as the update is being
deployed in stages.

Joseph, just did check for updates on my laptop. Didn't get it. I
haven't tried the new XPS 8940 yet as I'm listening to DR Thom
Hartmann on there.

Hello everyone,

Windows 10 October 2020 Update (20H2) is now available. Highlights
of this release include Alt+Tab changes, subtle changes to Start
menu, tablet interface improvements (including no more ‘tablet
mode” on computers with no touchscreens), and under the hood
changes. See the following Microsoft blog for details:


As we always do, a new feature update release means:

1. Please wait until “Feature update to Windows 10, version 20H2”
is offered via Windows Update. Like recent feature updates,
it’ll be an optional update unless you are using Windows 10
Version 1809 or 1903, which are going out of support very soon.
2. As always, please back up before you apply the feature update.
3. Just because Version 20H2 is available doesn’t mean everyone
will get it today, especially given that not all users were
offered Version 2004 (May 2020 Update).
4. Speaking of Version 2004, Version 20H2 is Version 2004 with
additional features.
5. The last regular cumulative update announcement for Version
2004 will be sent on December 8, 2020. Between now and then,
you’ll see 19041(2) in KB alert subject line.

And with that, let the rollout begin!
