Re: windows 10 app esencials announsing what updates you have

    The add on should still tell you what updates you have when you check for updates people who can see will know what updates they have but we won't unless we check the list.  You may not want this but some of us do.  It be an option in the add on settings for those who do.  I don't use every setting that is nvda but I am glad that they are there for those who need them.  The question is nvda really and truly user driven or not?  Options that users want should be given serious conciteration but they are not.

          I just did a "Check for Updates" and got an update for Windows Defender definitions.  I was focused on the update History link so I would only have known that an update was found because the "install ascending beeps began" but I was able to hit SHIFT+TAB to go back to the updates list and it read off the update that had been downloaded and was being applied.  Since this was prefaced by "List" I'd have to believe I could navigate through additional list items if such had existed.

          Like I said, most updates occur in the background if they're "trivial" and I don't even know that they've occurred unless I check Update History.  Since you can't reject them it's more than a bit of a moot point if you know about them either immediately before or immediately after they've been applied.  They will be applied so I simply don't concern myself with them until or unless a problem occurs that requires fixing.  If you want to know what's been applied that you didn't manually initiate and watch then use the Updates History link to get to the list.

     The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing in the right place but to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.
