The Preferences window is displayed via the
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
- 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.
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
- 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.
