I agree brian.
Unlike jaws we really don't want to go down that road.
The same with our addons.
Nvda can run without addons.
Maybe its not going to be the best but it will run.
Jaws can't run without scripts at least that was what was
shoved down my throat about 24 years back.
At any rate if addon x is not compatible with nvda it means its
not updated or its integrated or something.
Of course there are those that think everything should work
without updates and don't see why there should be breaking
updates because of all the languages and other requirements at
Yeah sometimes I feel the pain of those users, but being had my
background with a little linux and with a few other things
moving plugins about though a bit annoying especially of how
some of them never make it to updaters, etc its just life.
Sometimes you need to work for things.

If one is
concerned about having multiple viable versions of NVDA, I'd
establish the practice of making a portable copy (which can be
made on the machine itself in a dedicated folder) prior to
updating every time a major update (essentially, the year
changing on the NVDA release number) occurs. Portable versions
of NVDA do not need to be on a thumb drive or SD card. They can
be placed in a folder on the computer (and that folder can be
copied to a thumb drive, SD card, or even an external USB HDD if
you need actual portability - nothing else is necessary).
There is very little, I'd say almost no, reason to support
multiple installed versions of NVDA. Others, of course, will
disagree. I see far more requests on the JAWS lists for a
"portable version" option such as the one NVDA has than any
mention of keeping multiple versions of JAWS installed (and that
is mentioned, occasionally).

It is well to open one's mind
but only as a preliminary to closing it . . . for the
supreme act of judgment and selection.
