NVDA Add-Ons - About Updating


Danny Park
 

Is there any way to have all incompatible add-ins automatically updated or do you have to update them one at a time.


Thanks,

Danny


 

If the add-ons are part of the community add-ons, and you have the Add-On Updater add-on installed, when compatible versions become available you will be notified and you go through the standard process to update.

If they are third-party add-ons, then you have to take care of it yourself.  This means, of course, for each third-party add-on individually.

If you install the Add-on Updater add-on it will check for any available updates for you and then you can choose to install them when you're ready.  This only works for add-ons that are on the official NVDA page, so if you're using the Codefactory voices, for instance, it won't catch that.

I do, and love that thing. I hope though it will update disabled add ons. I know that was not meant at me but take care anyway.

Hi,

Two things:

  1. Add-on Updater will update disabled add-ons (do not confuse this with incompatible add-ons). An add-on update will be shown if: there is an actual update (version differences) and the add-on is seen as compatible with the NVDA version you have.
  2. As for add-ons mentioned in recent thread such as Speech History (see a different thread on that add-on), all I can say is that a birdy told me that significant events are on the horizon (shhh, not here).

Cheers,

You must update each one - one at a time.

Cool. Have a good vacation. I’m going on one myself which will be good, I need the brake. When I come back I’m sure I’ll have a lot of exciting things to look forward to.

 

Happy Saturday.
