Latest issues

  • (2021-10-19, v:4.2) David Oakley: Voice recognition
    If I record using the Mic icon, my comment is preceded by the text 'Could not find button' so 'testing 123' becomes: 'Could not find button testing 1 2 3'
  • (2021-10-04, v:4.1) David Oakley: Settings not retained
    Recently, settings no longer stick after Chrome is shut-down. Typically, I turn off Narrator and Bidding and Play settings. But after computer reboot they appear again along with the desired Board and Hand settings.
