Updates Preferences

The Preferences window is displayed via the Narrator > Preferences... menu item. This is the Updates page. It allows you to control whether or not you would like Narrator to help you keep current by automatically checking for new releases, and lets you specify how often to check and what kind of releases you are interested in.

Automatically check for updates when you have a network connection
If this box is checked, Narrator will automatically check for new releases at the frequency you specify. It will only check when Narrator is running, and when you have a network (internet) connection. It is on by default, and is recommended to make keeping up-to-date as easy as possible.
Frequency
This pop-up menu allows you to indicate how often Narrator should look for updates. The choices are Daily, Weekly, or Monthly. After checking, it will wait at least this long before automatically checking again. The default is Weekly.
Desired releases
With this pop-up menu, you can specify whether you are interested in Only General Releases, or both Beta & General Releases. The default is Only General Releases if you have never used a beta release of Narrator, or Beta & General Releases if you've used a beta release.
Status / Last Check
This indicates whether or not Narrator found an update the last time it checked, along with the time and date that the Updates feature was last used, i.e. when Narrator last checked for a new version.
Check Now
Click this button to look for a new release immediately. It is equivalent to the Narrator > Check for Updates... menu command.
Restore Defaults
Click this button to change the preferences on this page back to the factory-set values. Preferences on other pages are not affected. A confirmation sheet is presented, unless it was disabled.
