I don't think my reply was received so I'm sending it again. The check for
updates in the preferences menu is indeed checked. Sometimes the feature
works and sometimes it doesn't.

Hi,

Is the add-on told not to check for updates? To check that, go to NVDA
Menu/Preferences/Windows 10 App Essentials and see if the update checkbox is
checked.

Cheers,

Joseph

In the e-mail, it is indicated that you don't have to click on the links
above to update the add-ons. The only add-on I use is Windows 10 App
Essentials. But when I highlight the Nvda shortcut to launch Nvda, the
program opens but the add-on is not displayed so I can answer yes that I
wish to download the add-on. Why won't the automatic detection feature
work? Thank you.

Hi,

In this case, you should check for updates manually (from the dialog in question, select check for update button).

Cheers,

My update interval in days is seven.  The channel is set to stable.  Truth be told, I really never concerned myself with the interval or channel.

Hi Josef,

I like the announcement of the virtual desktop number. Works great for me when switching and deleting a virtual desktop.

For those not knowing how to work with virtual desktops in Win10:

Control-windows-rightt-arrow – creates a new virtual desktop or switches to an existing one

Control-windows-left-arrow / right arrow – switches between virtual desktops

Control-windows-F4 – closes the current virtual desktop

 

Cheers,

  Ralf

Hi all,

 

Version 18.05 of the following add-ons are now available:

 

 

This release introduces Playlist Transcripts, a feature to let you take a snapshot of the loaded playlist and view it in numerous formats. Eventually this feature will let you copy information to the clipboard and/or files. Version 18.05 also introduces partial playlist snapshots so you can take snapshots of part of a playlist.

 

 

The biggest change is ability to announce virtual desktop ID (the current virtual desktop you are on or switching to) when you open, close, or switch between virtual desktops. If this feature is working well for everyone, I’ll send an official pull request to NV Access so it can be integrated as early as NVDA 2018.3.

 

In case you didn’t know: these two add-ons are part of a group of add-ons that offer automatic add-on update feature. This means you don’t have to click on the links above and download the add-on – you just check for add-on updates from NVDA itself (via facilities provided by add-ons).

 

Enjoy the new add-on releases.

 

Cheers,

Joseph


 

Hi,

No, it came through.
