You make a good point, but that could easily be rectified if
during the install, there is a reference screen that says
something like: "You have just installed the basic NVDA package.
NVDA is a flexible program and there are additional add-ons which
can expand the functionality of NVDA for such programs as Winamp,
Thunderbird, ETC. The add-ons can be found at..." This would
inform anyone installing the program that major enhancements can
be added to NVDA functionality by the use of add-ons.

I think that perhaps the most important reason to add certain
add-ons to the program itself is that a lot of NVDA users don't
know, and won't know, that add-ons exist or where to get them.
I'm very curious if anyone has any idea what percent of NVDA
users use add--ons and knows where to get them and how to see
what is available. It may not be practical to do such a study
but I'd be surprised if more than thirty or forty percent of
NVDA users use add-ons. And some of those users may use ones
that instructors told them about or installed. The user may not
know where to get them or where to find out what is available.

Interesting topic! Personally I only agree
with half of it. It would be indeed great if at least some
add-ons became part of NVDA, and I would include Screen
Curtain among those.
On the other hand, I totally oppose the
exclusion of the ducking function. It’s extremely useful,
especially with services like Youtube or Google Play Music.
Often it’s the only way to hear the screen reader without
having to close everything else.
Let’s see what other opinions come up!
