I would suggest getting the beta, creating a
portable version, and trying the add-on with it so you can be prepared and see
any possible problems now. Also, reporting them might be
In addition, I have said before that automatically
save settings when you close the program is a very bad default setting. If
you close it, or for some reason you close it by shutting down Windows, any
experimental settings will be saved and will be the new settings used when you
run the program. It would be a very good idea to turn this setting off and
save that change with control NVDA key c.
If you switch to the new voices and you have
silence, you can then simply use control shift r and apply the saved
configuration, which will run the voice you use when the program comes up.
You won't get into a loop where the silent voice is automaticallly saved and
comes up when you run the program or revert to the saved configuration.
Of course, if the program freezes, you will have to
deal with that and then run the program again.
I strongly believe that automatically save settings
on exit is a very poor default setting and that very serious consideration be
given to changing it. People can get into all sorts of trouble with this
setting being on and new users, in particular, should be free to experiment as
much as they want with different settings and not have them inadvertently saved,
when it isn't their intent.

Subject: [nvda] Can't update Vocalizer with NVDA's
I tried going ahead and updating to the new
Vocalizer Driver, but because I’m still running NVDA’s latest stable version it
won’t allow for the update, thus I’ve several questions for when the time comes
to update myNVDA; I’m worried I’ll have to cope with a silent NVDA, and my
family doesn’t know much of technology or computers, to be able to if this
should arise, help me out in the meantime.
1.-What’s the best course of action, then
when updating to the latest NVDA when it comes out, so that I won’t be without a
voice, when the NVDA runs? If I install the Beta of NVDA in portable mode, and I
update Vocalizer that way, will the upgraded voice come up speaking when the
actual stable NVDA IS RELEASED?
2.-Because I’ve Vocalizer to run as my default voice, would
you guys recommend then maybe defaulting to a windows10 voice to be on the safe
side, and then update the Vocalizer Driver from that perspective?
