Re: History of NVDA add-ons
Not sure, I started when it was nvda 415 and maybe earlier.
Initially it was not much better than narator.
Obviously it used all the internal components.
You can use it for the most part without addons.
And if all you want is brousing the net, using thunderbird or other email and or just standard windows even 10 you could do it without addons for the most part.
In fact for windows xp which was when it was created you really didn't need addons at all.
Later on especially after windows 7 there were features others wanted that well didn't make it in the final release.
It was in python and such, so people thought why not.
Or it simply could be the idea that maybe it should have modules or plugins.
Features can be swapped out and created for good or bad.
Most are free, some are not.
It can be a problem at times keeping up but still.
