Important community add-ons notice: Image Describer by Oliver Edholm is no longer maintained, replaced by Online image Describer by Larry Wang


Hello all,

I was notified that several NVDA users (on users list) cannot use Image Describer add-on originally developed by Oliver Edholm. The add-ons community was notified, and an add-ons reviewer suggested looking into Larry Wang’s Online Image Describer as a potential alternative (and also let our GSoC 2020 student use that add-on as basis for his project). A user also noted that he tried contacting Oliver and got no response so far.


Therefore, please:


  1. Disable Image Describer add-on (original version, not Larry’s version).
  2. Test Larry Wang’s version (found under development section on community add-ons website).


The add-ons community will provide further guidance once more information becomes available.
