Speech History Add-On


Louise Pfau
 

Hi.  I missed this one too when it lost compatibility after 2021.1.  I just downloaded and installed it.

Thanks,

Louise

Yep I saw the msg and downloaded the update.  I have not installed it as I was busy taking care of some other stuffage.  I did join the add ons group though so I can get word of anything new to play with and or brake.

Try this. This was copied from a message he sent yesterday.

 

This release adds compatibility with NVDA 2022.1.  There are no additional changes.

I didn’t see it under legacy which is making me curious now.

 

Thanks. I also didn’t see it update in the add on updater which is odd as it I think has before but don’t quote me on that.

Ah I’ll take a look I didn’t actually see the file name, but I did see the last updated date which was last year. That should have thrown a red flag for me. For what ever reason, maybe not enough coffee yet, it didn’t. lol!

What's available at this very moment for the Speech History add-on is not compatible with NVDA 2022.1.  Even the add-on file includes 2021.1 in its name, which is a big hint.

I believe that Mr. Scholes may have been just the tiniest bit "late to the party" in issuing his official update.  See the GitHub Page for Speech History, where, as of the moment I'm typing this, there are entries for making it compatible with NVDA 2022.1 logged 21 hours ago.  An update is clearly in the pipeline.  I can't say precisely when it will exit said pipeline.

Ok, yep I knew mine was disabled so I went to the page thinking that maybe I had  missed an update or 10, nope, I didn’t even miss an update or 10. I don’t see any contact information on the add on page, unless I missed it, so can who ever it is, if they are on here please look into this, or if not, can someone ping the author? I’ll also  look at that nvda add ons site, the store thing to see if maybe a beta is up there.

I tried installing it in the current NVDA version and it was blocked because it isn't compatible.

And, based on this post by the author in the NVDA Add-Ons group, https://nvda-addons.groups.io/g/nvda-addons/message/18933, it would appear that the only update that was required was to the manifest, in this case, and that a pull request is pending so that Add-On Updater will recognize the latest version.

A direct link to the latest version is also in that post for those who want to manually update.
