If many add ons are automatically downloaded with the screen reader, won’t that make the screan reader take up more room on the computer, leave a larger foot print, and just make the screen reader itself more complicated to use?
The great thing about NVDA that I like, is that you can have a very small, snappy, even portable program, and you can add just the add ons that you need. The fact that NVDA does not have a ton of features built in, makes it so easy to install, run, and you don’t need a ton of memory and space like you need with JAWS, for example.

I when i gave windows eyes a test drive was a feature i wouldive turned off.
There was stuff or what ever they were called were downloaded to the screen reader weather i wanted them or not.
You should not be forced to get them and pick only the ones you want.
There are people on this list with none some and quite a few add ons.
They should not be forced to get them but they need to be aware of them just in case they need that extra functionality.
