Please use the search option before posting.
It has been explained several times already that avast has removed it.

Hi!

Same thread in the German section, but it should be fixed.

No auto update notifications in avast 2015 - see https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=157589.msg1138441#msg1138441.

Given the above link I posted from an avast team member, it doesn't seem like it will be fixed given the change was intentional - unless the topic you linked to is different to this one - no auto update popup or voiceover.

Yes agree with DavidR, as I also got the sense the change is intentional. Possibly in response to those who felt it was unnecessary and a bother to have voice and popup.
I personally like the gal and will miss her.  ;D

Hard to believe they removed it just because few people whined about it. Actually, I always wished for two options
1. Enable/Disable slideup/popup
2. Enable/Disable lady's voice
But too late now :( it's gone and I'm not happy.
1. Toshiba Satellite A75, Windows XP-Pro-SP3, Avast! free v9, Sunbelt Firewall 4.7.4.0, SSM, Opera 12.17, SeaMonkey+NoScript, mvps hosts, (MalwareBytes updated and run on demand only, rarely used), Acronis v11, SUMo
2. Toshiba Thrive tablet (rooted) ICS, AdAway (hosts), Opera, Avast Mobile Security 3.0.7801, Titanium Backup, App Backup&Restore

Ok, so sounds and pop-ups are removed.
Then what the heck is this for?
And what about the people that have a visual handicap? :'(

It may have been better to create your own new topic as this one is over three years old and a lot has changed in that time.

I don't think that you will find it on the web, presumably you have the German Language installed (AvastUI > Settings > General) ?
If so then the voiceovers should also have been installed.

But you have to check the option to use Voiceovers, AvastUI > Settings > General > Sounds > Voiceovers.
