Windows 10 App Essentials 20.10.2 is now
available. This version includes localization updates and
fixes an issue in emoji panel where NVDA may announce first
people emoji if this category is selected. It also comes with
a fix for Cortana generation 2 (Version 2004 and later) where
NVDA doesn’t announce text responses when using most recent
Cortana version. As always, you can check for the add-on
update via Add-on Updater or visiting community add-ons
A few things to note about upcoming Windows
10 App Essentials releases and development snapshots:
20.10.2 is the last version to support NVDA 2020.1. Starting
in November, NVDA 2020.2 or later will be required (this
add-on supports current and immediate past releases, which
are 2020.3 and 2020.2, respectively as of time of this
next week (likely by October 25th snapshot),
development snapshots will require NVDA 2020.3. Although the
stable version won’t require 2020.3 until next year, I’m
doing this early for dev channel subscribers in order to
test add-on compatibility with vast internal changes
introduced in NVDA 2020.3 that benefits this add-on.
- Starting in
late November (likely around Thanksgiving weekend in United
States), development snapshots will not run on November 2019
Update (Version 1909) in preparation for invoking another
support policy: Windows 10 App Essentials will be dropping
support for Version 1909 in January 2021.
- Likely in
early December, development snapshot users will get an
absolute alpha (pilot) build of this add-on i.e. an add-on
development snapshot that will require upcoming NVDA 2020.4
which is in development. The content of this alpha build
will depend on features the upcoming NVDA version will have
around that time.
By the way, if you want to contribute to
this add-on, feel free to post issues on GitHub and/or send
pull requests. Anyone who are using Windows 10 (at least
supported releases) are welcome to contribute, although for
best experience, I recommend using latest stable release
(Version 2004), or if you are helping out with an Insider
Preview feature, use either beta or dev channel builds
(speaking of dev channel Insider Preview builds, expect a
series of builds this weekend and next week that will bring
support for updated emoji panel design, which is way different
than what we are used to, according to reports I’m hearing).
