locked Re: Add-on Updater 20.03 #addonrelease


Well, let's not forget that most people don't die from an infection with SARS-CoV-2, the so-called @corona virus@. Although precise numbers are hard to get for statistical reasons,  even the worsed numbers give a 92% survival rate.

The biggest challenge with statistics is, that most people show only light symptoms which  is why many are not even tested and thus fall out of the statistics. Taking this into account, the real lethal rate might very likely be way be below 5% according to e.g. the Robert-Koch institute, a leading center in epidemiology. It for sure is very sad for those who do die, but it also means that 95% or more survive an infection.

So I think we are pretty far from the danger to  wipe out humanity with it.  Actually, the way we treat / or rather destroy / our environment is a much bigger real threat in this respect. But is is also slower, and hence easily to ignore for the moment.

Take care,

Hello all,


First, as Coronavirus is gripping the world, please wash your hands, heed travel advisories, and check and double-check information floating around the internet.


Add-on Updater 20.03 is on its way – this important (and mandatory) add-on release will show up for all NVDA users within the next 24 hours. Changes include:


  • NVDA 2019.3 or later is required.
  • NVDA itself will check compatibility range, not the add-on.


As I announced a few weeks ago, with Add-on Updater 20.03, all my add-ons I’m currently maintaining have graduated to Python 3 – all my add-ons will now require NVDA 2019.3 or later. As such, once Add-on Updater 20.03 shows up, old Python 2 versions of my add-ons will be removed from community add-ons website.
