NVDA 2018.1rc2 Released for Testing

NVDA 2018.1rc2 has just been released for testing. This is a release candidate, which means that unless any critical issues are found, this will be identical to the final 2018.1 release.

Changes from rc1 to rc2 include:

  • NVDA will no longer cause messages in Outlook or documents in Microsoft Word to be classed as changed after only reading them. (#8038)
  • The ALVA Protocol Converter should now really work as advertised (#8047)
  • NVDA will correctly upgrade to the new Alva braille driver with out the user having to open the Braille settings dialog and choosing Alva again. (#8051)
  • NVDA again supports the Alva 640 Comfort.
