Hi,
In theory, it might be possible to sort it by last modified date and time.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hi Josef,

that's right, but it's not confortable to always check addon compatibility while browsing addons. It would be great to have addons sorted by date of creation and date of last update so old and not updated addons are at the bottom of the page while up to date addons are at the top.

This would make life easier.

Thanks

Hi Josef, and all,

at the moment we have stable addons wich are compatible with nvda 2020.4 and addons wich are working only with older nvda versions. It would be really great if we could sort them in any way so users are able to see directly wich addons are up to date. Should I file an issue and where?

Thanks and best regards

Hi friends,

In this group, there were often comments about duplication of input
gestures by various NVDA add-ons.
Each of the installed add-ons can make changes to the NVDA configuration
by adding or reassigning existing input gestures. If the same input
gestures are binded to several functions, it will be impossible to call
some of them.
There is also a problem when sometimes add-on functions have no
description, and as a result - the input gestures associated with them
are not displayed in the corresponding dialog.

I offer you a simple add-on that so far has only two functions:
1. Search for duplicate gestures
2. Gestures without description

After installing this add-on, the corresponding submenu will appear in
the Tools menu.
These features are also presented in the Input Gestures dialog, where you
can assign shortcuts to them.
You can find more information in the ReadMe document.

Also, the source code of this add-on contains MyPy type hints and was
checked by the flake8 linter.
Thanks to the instructions in this group, I started taking the first
steps in using GitHub Actions.

Download link here:
https://github.com/grisov/checkGestures/releases/download/latest/checkGestures-1.0.1-dev.nvda-addon

Friends, I'm very grateful to you for comments and suggestions, for
translations and attention to my projects!

I'm also gradually updating other add-ons and preparing them for
compatibility with Python 3.8.
After the release of the beta version of NVDA 2021.1 and testing of
add-ons, I will publish links to their updated versions separately.
The necessary changes have already been made to the Unmute, Volume
Adjustment and Quick Dictionary add-ons, but I'm still not sure if there
will be other compatibility issues.

I wish everyone good health, be safety!
Oleksandr

Hi all.
I use Spotify Desktop, too. The accessibility is good. With problems of read in the playlist with NVDA, first, you can contact to the Spotify support. A friend contact to the support and the team of accessibility help with some problems (first the slider for crossfade in the preferences dialog), including test. I can ask what is the kontact for it.

Maybe You know about Spotify. New interface is better accessible, than
this previous. I think to Spotify for desktop. Sometimes NVDA don't read
everything on Spotify, for example playlist view in 'Your library' ETC.
Similar thing is with moving playlists to folders, althought with new
interface Spotify's accessibility is better.

I don't know, how to programm, but please somebody make Spotify for
desktop accessible with NVDA. It is very good software.

strangeness with NVDA alpha

bering.p
 

Hi.
I am testing my add-on with NVDa alpha and I am experiencing the following issue:
To configure my add-on, I planned in a panel, a group including in order:
- a first checkbox,
- a second checkbox,
- and lastly, a check list box.
When I test the add-on under NVDA 2020.4, everything is normal: the objects are in the expected order when browsing with "tab" and "shift + tab".
But when I test under the latest NVDA alpha, the check list box goes first and the check boxes follow it.

If I don't put these objects in a group, then the order is respected.
What am I to think of all this?
Make a mistake or is there some change in NVDA causing this?
In the latter case, how to ensure that the order is respected?
For information, here is the test code of the "makeSettings":

def makeSettings (self, settingsSizer):
sHelper = gui.guiHelper.BoxSizerHelper (self, sizer = settingsSizer)
groupText = _ ("my group")
group = gui.guiHelper.BoxSizerHelper (self, sizer = wx.StaticBoxSizer (wx.StaticBox (self, label = groupText), wx.VERTICAL))
sHelper.addItem (group)
labelText = _ ("my check box 1")
self.checkBox = group.addItem (wx.CheckBox (self, wx.ID_ANY, label = labelText))
labelText = _ ("my check box 2")
self.checkBox = group.addItem (wx.CheckBox (self, wx.ID_ANY, label = labelText))
labelText = _ ("my check list box:")
self.symbolsCheckListBox = group.addLabeledControl (
labelText,
nvdaControls.CustomCheckListBox,
choices = ["item1", "item2"],
)

Thank for your help and sorry for my bad english.
Bestre regards.
Paul.

Re: Welcome to the NVDA Community Add-ons website - WordNav #feed

 

Hi,

First, a huge apology to Tony for late add-on registrations (I thought I did register WordNav on the website but apparently it wasn’t).

If you haven’t checked it out yet, go ahead and check out WordNav (Add-on Updater will also check for updates to this add-on, too).
Cheers,

Joseph

Subject: [nvda-addons] Welcome to the NVDA Community Add-ons website - WordNav #feed

 

WordNav

  • Author: Tony Malykh
  • Download stable version
  • NVDA compatibility: 2019.3 and later

WordNav NVDA add-on improves built-in navigation by word, as well as adds extra word navigation commands with different definition for the word.

Most text editors support Control+LeftArrow/RightArrow commands for word navigation. However the definition of the word changes from one program to another. This is especially true of modern web-based text editors, such as Monaco. NVDA should know the definition of word in given program in order to speak words correctly. If NVDA doesn't know the exact definition, then either words are going to be skipped, or pronounced multiple times. Moreover, some web-based text editors position the cursor in the end of the word, instead of the beginning, making editing much harder for visually impaired users. In order to combat this problem I have created enhanced word navigation commands, that take the word definition from Notepad++ and they do not rely on program's definition of words, but rather parse lines into words on NVDA's side. The Control+LeftArrow/RightArrow gesture is not even sent to the program, thus ensuring the consistency of the speech.

Please note that a prototype of WordNav was formerly a part of Tony's enhancements add-on. Please either uninstall it or upgrade to Tony's enhancements latest stable version to avoid conflicts.

Currently WordNav supports four definitions of the word, assigned to different gestures:

  • Left Control+Arrows: Notepad++ definition, that treats alphanumeric characters as words, and adjacent punctuation marks are also treated as words. This should be the most convenient word definition for the majority of users.
  • RightControl+Arrows: Fine word definition splits camelCaseIdentifiers and underscore_separated_identifiers into separate parts, thus allowing the cursor to go into long identifiers.
  • LeftControl+Windows+Arros: Bulky word definition treats almost all punctuation symbols adjacent to text as part of a single word, therefore it would treat paths like C:\directory\subdirectory\file.txt as a single word.
  • RightControl+Windows+Arros: Multiword definition, that groups several words together. The amount of words is configurable.

Gestures can be customized in WordNav settings panel.

Notes

  • At this time WordNav doesn't modify Control+Shift+LeftArrow/RightArrow gestures to select words, since implementation of such commands are significantly more complicated.
  • If you would like to use virtual desktops feature of Windows 10, please remember to disable Control+Windows+Arrows keyboard shortcuts either in WordNav Settings panel, or in NVDA Input gestures dialog.
  • WordNav doesn't work reliably in VSCode, since due to its internal optimizations, VSCode presents only a few lines of file contents at a time, that change dynamically, and this occasionally interferes with WordNav algorithm.

WordNav

  • Author: Tony Malykh
  • Download stable version
  • NVDA compatibility: 2019.3 and later

WordNav NVDA add-on improves built-in navigation by word, as well as adds extra word navigation commands with different definition for the word.

Most text editors support Control+LeftArrow/RightArrow commands for word navigation. However the definition of the word changes from one program to another. This is especially true of modern web-based text editors, such as Monaco. NVDA should know the definition of word in given program in order to speak words correctly. If NVDA doesn't know the exact definition, then either words are going to be skipped, or pronounced multiple times. Moreover, some web-based text editors position the cursor in the end of the word, instead of the beginning, making editing much harder for visually impaired users. In order to combat this problem I have created enhanced word navigation commands, that take the word definition from Notepad++ and they do not rely on program's definition of words, but rather parse lines into words on NVDA's side. The Control+LeftArrow/RightArrow gesture is not even sent to the program, thus ensuring the consistency of the speech.

Please note that a prototype of WordNav was formerly a part of Tony's enhancements add-on. Please either uninstall it or upgrade to Tony's enhancements latest stable version to avoid conflicts.

Currently WordNav supports four definitions of the word, assigned to different gestures:

  • Left Control+Arrows: Notepad++ definition, that treats alphanumeric characters as words, and adjacent punctuation marks are also treated as words. This should be the most convenient word definition for the majority of users.
  • RightControl+Arrows: Fine word definition splits camelCaseIdentifiers and underscore_separated_identifiers into separate parts, thus allowing the cursor to go into long identifiers.
  • LeftControl+Windows+Arros: Bulky word definition treats almost all punctuation symbols adjacent to text as part of a single word, therefore it would treat paths like C:\directory\subdirectory\file.txt as a single word.
  • RightControl+Windows+Arros: Multiword definition, that groups several words together. The amount of words is configurable.

Gestures can be customized in WordNav settings panel.

Improving accessibility of Spotify for desktop

Marco Oros
 

Hello.

I don't know, where to post It. I'll try to post It here.

Maybe You know about Spotify. New interface is better accessible, than this previous. I think to Spotify for desktop. Sometimes NVDA don't read everything on Spotify, for example playlist view in 'Your library' ETC. Similar thing is with moving playlists to folders, althought with new interface Spotify's accessibility is better.

I don't know, how to programm, but please somebody make Spotify for desktop accessible with NVDA. It is very good software.

Thank You.

best regards

Marco Oros

I never saw that or if I did I did not gather that this was the case, since I saw addons of his update not long ago on my main version.

Hello

Yes, if you are running alpha, you need to download again the last version
of add-on updater on the community website and re-install it.
Joseph has already communicated on this issue on this list a few days ago.

Cheers,

Cyrille
