How to update Speech Pad
The extension is updated automatically.
When the scripts on the speechpad.pw site are updated, you may need to refresh your pages (press F5), because the scripts may be cached on your side.
The integration module is not updated automatically, so you must download the zip archive from https://speechpad.pw/blog/windows-integration/ and replace the old ru-speechpad-host.exe file by the new one.
