Re: Introducing Add-on Updater: check, download, apply add-on updates #addonrelease

 

probably.

However to be honest, I think both nvda and other addon updaters should have some way to have different level of setting like microsoft used to have.

1.  install updates.

2.  download updates and once done ask you to install them and 3, notify you if one exists maybe with an extra tone, you could have an alarm for a critical update, another noise for one that may not be so bad and something else if its just a non required thing whatever.

I am also wandering if nvda could have incromental updates depending on what is being updated for space and the like and speed to though that may not always work.

But in the cases where we had 18.03.1 and .2, and the a b c d e f versions, a patch would have worked in that situation.

Hi all,

I’m delighted to announce the immediate release of Add-on Updater that brings one of the frequently requested features to life: ability to check, download, and apply community add-on updates:

https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/addonUpdater.en.html

To use this add-on, after installing it, go to NVDA menu/Tools/Check for add-on updates. If updates are found, a list of updates will be shown with an option to update add-ons. After installing add-on updates, say “yes” when asked to restart.

The following add-ons are excluded from add-on update check via this add-on because they provide their own add-on update feature: Braille Extender, StationPlaylist Studio, WeatherPlus, Windows 10 App Essentials. Also, add-ons not hosted on community add-ons website (addons.nvda-project.org) are also excluded.

Re: MS Onenote

 

To be honest I am unsure if its easy to work with but while its not fully accessible for storage, you can get up to 2tb on icloud, true it does cost a bundle but still.

Everyone with a gmail gets a google drive.

One drive is probably the best even over dropbox because its part of the system.

if you use that service instead).

There's not too much difference between the various services, though you do
get more space with some than with others for free, or when purchasing
other products or services (such as Office).

OneNote is more a tool for dumping information in a more freeform way than
say Word, which you can store to use or come back to later. Useful if you
use that, but I think perhaps you were thinking of OneDrive rather than
OneNote.

Quinton,


I am just beginning to learn what it is and how to use it. It was
recommended to me by a friend. We want to use a tool that will let us
access certain files from our phones and from our computers at all times
and we were told OneNote will let us do this.


Thanks.

Re: Introducing Add-on Updater: check, download, apply add-on updates #addonrelease

 

Hi,

Eventually, yes. In the next add-on release, I’ll let the add-on “not work” when the stable version of NVDA with automatic add-on update checking feature is installed.

Cheers,

Joseph
