It's not currently an option, but it would be worth submitting the suggestion as a new issue on our tracker here:

And it's worth me plugging our "Basic Training for NVDA" material (available in electronic text formats, audio and hardcopy Braille): Actually if nothing else, it's also worth immersing yourself in the NVDA users e-mail list:

Interesting, this has been asked before and last time we looked into it, we found that it didn't seem to be possible. It's certainly something to consider if it is indeed possible.

Have you just updated NVDA by any chance? I saw another report of a similar issue and the user advised that after rebooting the computer, the issue disappeared. Even if that is the case, if you could send me your log to info@nvaccess.org, we can try to get to the bottom of it.

There is now a note at the top of the download page, including a link to the older release. Thanks :)

As Joseph noted, it wasn't that we deliberately broke XP support; indeed we held out longer than most other software companies. Rather it got to a point where keeping XP support would hold us back from fixing other bugs, supporting current architecture & implementing features.

Sorry, I (Quentin) didn't notice that Mick had replied as to your original tweet. If run on XP, the 2017.4 installer should advise you of the incompatibility & offer 2017.3 instead. I haven't checked whether it does that with Windows 7 without SP1.

You're welcome. Many users have traditionally used Firefox, but we do support Chrome (and Edge, and IE), and working to further improve how well NVDA works with it. Definitely do let us know of any issues you encounter!

Windows 7 needs Service Pack 1, and yes it's supported. Microsoft support for Windows 7 runs until 2020, and we intend to continue support for Windows 7 until at least then, and as long as we can (as we have done with XP up to 2017.3).

Firstly, have you got Windows 7 Service Pack 1? (It's needed) Next, how far did you get and did you get an error message? Could you download? Run the installer to the point where it spoke? Install NVDA at all?
