Note: groups.io will be down for maintenance this evening, starting at 11pm Pacific Time (6am Tuesday 8/3/2020 UTC), for up to two hours.
Note: the following advisory comes from a third-party developer based on what’s happening with NVDA source code. I expect NV Access to make a statement when they are ready.
Screen reader compatibility advisory:
Until now in order to use the following modern input features, NVDA users had to use Windows 10 App Essentials add-on:
In addition, NVDA did not natively recognize more dialogs in Windows 10 and apps.
This is changing in NVDA 2018.3:
Thus, to take advantage of features introduced in RS5, NVDA 2018.3 or later is recommended.
If there are updates to this advisory, I’ll post them as part of a general advisory and compatibility notes in September.
