NVDA 2019.1 now available

Quentin Christensen

Hi everyone,

NV Access is pleased to announce that version 2019.1 of NVDA, the free screen reader for Microsoft Windows, has now been released.

Highlights of this release include performance improvements when accessing both Microsoft word and Excel, stability and security improvements such as support for add-ons with version compatibility informatiWordand many other bug fixes.

In the release announcement at https://www.nvaccess.org/post/nvda-2019-1-now-available/ there is also important information about add-on compatibility.  Note that although the framework for having add-ons report versions compatibility is there, and we encourage all add-on developers to update their add-ons to include this if they haven't already - This version of NVDA will however still allow installing and loading of add-ons that do not yet contain Minimum and Last Tested NVDA version information at all, but upgrading to future versions of NVDA (E.g. 2019.2) may automatically cause these older add-ons to be disabled.

Kind regards


Quentin Christensen
