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
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?
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?
