    Error with nvda latest source - master

    Is any one else getting this error when trying to build the latest sources from nvda master
    nvda\build\x86\local\UIAUtils.h(7): fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'winrt/windows.ui
    .uiautomation.core.h': No such file or directory

    Hi all, I have a question regarding an accessibility issue: when running the menu button example at https://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria-practices/examples/menu-button/menu-button-links.html, it doesn't behave the way I expect it to behave when running NVDA. The suggestion is that arrow down or enter on the button should open the menu, and that it should focus the first item. When running NVDA however, opening the menu doesn't trigger the keyboard handlers on that page, and consequently also doesn't jump to the first menu item.
    The proposed system is a div, containing a button and a unnumbered list. The keyboard handlers are on the div, but NVDA selects the button instead, and consequently doesn't behave as the example suggests.

    @amine1997:matrix.org I assume you already tried to restart NVDA?

    @mauritslamers
    can you copy the url from the browser and paste it here?

    @mauritslamers
    That seems to be the url to your matrix account
    Let's try this differently: if you try to access another page (say bbc.co.uk), does NVDA work on that page?

    No It just keeps saying unknown. The strange thing is that works fine with other apps except chroom

    Did anybody had a problem with NVDA not reading form validation messages in order? NVDA is displaying the messages in SpeechViewer in random order.
    Starting with NVDA 2021, performance in some windows, such as the Windows file explorer, the launch window, or scrolling through web pages, has decreased.
    Also, if an entire page is selected with CTRL plus a and the right arrow is pressed, it is no longer possible to get to the last character on the page, which is disappointing. I hope they solve these problems because it is disgusting to use the program with these conflicts

    I would like them to implement an option to disable the descriptions in the edit boxes, as most of the time it is not necessary for me.

    As an added feature, you should also see an option to disable the descriptions in the property boxes, as in most cases, they are descriptions that simply waste your time.

    It bothers me that when I am browsing a site, NVDA has to announce small annoying messages like the ones I will put below:
    "Tittle",
    "Grouping",
    "property page",
    "elements",
    "fountain",
    "Sources: grouping",
    document information: grouping ",
    "pages and spacing: grouping",
    "table information: grouping"

    My solution is that each of these advertised in the document format section can be disabled because I am already sick of not being able to delete these annoying messages
    Adding these messages to the word dictionary will create a distortion in any text, making the texts containing these words unreadable.
    Hope they work on this from now on because it really is quite annoying.

    Howdy - I seem to run into issues with NVDA on my windows 11 pc. Does anyone know if NVDA is supposed to be fully supported for Win11 yet?
    Michael Tsai
    @huanlin
    NVDA works fine on my Windows 11 machine.If you've installed NVDA 2021.3.1 release, it has some bug fixes for Windows 11. It is possible that some bugs on Windows 11 remain to be fixed.

    Hello, I am a prof and biomedical engineer, collaborating on a new project for VI population, which could use NVDA screen reader to connect a haptic project for lexical (Braille) and pictorial transposition. Is the NVDA source code available, or is strictly binary?
    jonpdw
    @jonpdw
    I believe all the source code is here https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda
    Is that what you where wanting?

    Is there a way to use nvda to just speak highlighted text? I'm not very good with the settings, but that is all I need it to do. Thanks

    Hi, when I launch NVDA on one laptop, windows 10, it launches the settings dialogue and a "bla da da" sound plays. I close the settings window. NVDA launches it again. The sound plays again. I do nothing the sound will play every 5 seconds or so. I checked device manager and I don't see anything funky there. Typically when you have a driver issue you'll see the device list refresh repeatedly but I'm not seeing that. I have to kill NVDA from task manager to make it stop. Has anyone else ran into this or have any suggestions?

    Hello eveybody,

    @Dirk-Team-VisioBraille I think this channel is not the best place to ask for this kind of info.
    I think it is better to contact NV Access directly: https://www.nvaccess.org/

    I'll do so, thanks a lot for this hint!

    Hi Everyone. I'm a sysadmin trying to support a blind user who has been experiencing app crashes and general slow down throughout the day. I've troubleshot everything I can think of other than NVDA, which seems to be the commonality. Does anyone have advice for troubleshooting a potential memory leak or related issue with NVDA? The user is hesitant to reload the OS because it takes him so much work to get everything how he likes it. Is there a config file or profile that I can export for him before doing a NVDA reinstall?
