Date   

dayOfTheWeek

Sergio Gómez
 

Hi Abdel.

 

I inform you that there is an error in dayOfTheWeek. Having the checkboxes enable selector accessibility, and announce when scrolling vertically I think, sometimes says the number 1601. Having the first and third boxes checked in the options, with the ads of the tags of the second option disabled.

 

I hope it serves the information.

Thanks in advance for your feedbacks.

Kind regards,
Abdel.


Re: What is the best way to get all gestures used in NVDA?

Noelia Ruiz
 

Hi, imo, inputCore.manager.getAllGestureMappings would be the best method.
To see gestures ich don't appear in the dialog, I would test to create
references to different objects to be used as the parameter of the
above method.
Nice weekend to you.

Cheers

Hi colleagues,

I have question for those who well know the structure of NVDA components.
If you could, Please tell me how we can programmatically view all the
keyboard commands used in NVDA and all installed add-ons.

All I found was to use the inputCore.manager.getAllGestureMappings()
method.
Then recursively view the results of this method.
Bound keyboard commands will be in the "gestures" attribute.

Is this the best way to get all used gestures?
Are there other ways to solve this issue?
How to get keyboard commands that are not displayed in the "Input Gestures"
dialog?

Grateful for any tips.
Have a nice week-end!

Re: Volume Adjustment add-on #review_request

Oleksandr Gryshchenko
 

Hi colleagues,

Unfortunately, I was unable to resolve the issue that caused errors on some systems when enumerating available audio devices.
It looks like the reason is in the PyCaw module used in the add-on.
In main repository there are open issues that indicate about this:
* https://github.com/AndreMiras/pycaw/issues/15
* https://github.com/AndreMiras/pycaw/issues/19

So I moved this advanced feature of the add-on to a separate option and noticed it as an experimental feature.
If desired, you can enable this check box in the add-on settings panel, as on some systems this feature still works correctly.

Another strange behavior occurs when using Skype.
When it starts, two or three audio sessions appear, duplicating each other.
So I added a checkbox in the settings panel to be able to hide duplicate audio sessions.

As for adjusting the volume for the Skype process - for some reason it works from time to time...
Unfortunately, I have not yet been able to understand the reason for this behavior.
I have tested the add-on with various programs and I must note that such strange behavior occurs only when using Skype.

Also, one user created a feature request to quickly switching the output to other audio devices:
https://github.com/grisov/NVDA_Volume_Adjustment/issues/6
NVDA has a standard dialog box that allows you to do this, which is called using NVDA+Ctrl+S.
The add-on allows now to quickly switch the output of NVDA sounds simply by pressing NVDA+Windows+PageUp or NVDA+Windows+PageDown.

Updated version of Volume Adjustment add-on is here:
https://github.com/grisov/NVDA_Volume_Adjustment/releases/download/v1.1/volumeAdjustment-1.1.nvda-addon

I wish everyone a good week-end!
Keep yourselves.
Oleksandr

Hi friends,

Another feature has been added to the updated version of Unmute. I hope it will be useful.

At startup, the add-on can check on which audio device the output of NVDA sound is performed.
And, if this device differs from the default device, the output automatically switches to the audio device installed in the system as the main one.

Of course, it is possible to disable this feature in the add-on settings panel.

Jumping to the first attribute change in a document

Mario Loreti
 

Hi!

I am new to this group, I hope to participate with my contribution.

I start with a little question:

is there an addon that could allow to jump through the various attributes change in a text?

Something to jump directly to a bold sentence contained in a document, for example.

Thank you.

Code help with Python

Babbage - Ahmed
 

Hello dear developers, I would greatly appreciate some help with code. Here's the deal:

I have a dictionary, right below

__gestures = {
"some_gesture": someObject.someFunction(x,y),
"another_gesture": anotherObject.someFunction(x,y),
"final_gesture": finalObject.someFunction(x,y)
}

#this is my function, which performs a mouse click on specific coordinates on the screen
def someFunction(x,y):
  mouseClick(x,y)

#this is my object. The attributes, x and y, are coordinates
myObject = Object(20, 20)
otherObject = Object(30,40)


The point of this code is to perform someFunction() on a certain gesture on the keyboard, like "NVDA+shift+a". In this example, I have 3 different gestures, and I want them all to do the function of someFunction(x,y). Every object has different x and y coordinates, so every object will click the mouse on different parts of the screen. To illustrate another example, check this explanation:

__gestures = {
"when I press shift+a": "perform someFunction(30, 40",
"when I press shift+b": "perform someFunction(50, 30)",
"when I press shift+c": "perform someFunction(40, 40)"
}


Re: get css selector of focused element

Andy B.
 

I never figured out how to get it to work inside of an NVDA addon either. You could try bs4, cssutils, or tinycss. Unfortunately, they all require xml.dom. NVDA excluded it from its Python library for some strange reason, and providing a prebuilt version of xml.etree seems impossible. If you can figure it out, I can continue work on developer toolkit.

Hi,

Is it possible to get a css selector for the focused web element?   I tried IA2 attribeutes and iSimpleDomNode, but I only managed to get the class and id. this is not enough, since web devs hardly respect the rule of unique ID’s.

Doing it with js is not reliable either, as, even with nvda+8 turned  off, focus is not always correctly found.

Thanks,

FW: [nvda-translations] VLC translation system errors fixed?

 

Hi all,

For translators: you should have received an email from Reef Turner a few hours ago regarding translations system update going forward.

Please do test updated VLC add-on translation workflow and report your findings to Reef, either through this list or replying to Reef’s post on VLC add-on translations.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi translators,

The translation system encounters errors for many add-ons, these seem to mostly be merging errors. I have attempted to fix this for the VLC addon and would ask the community to monitor / check that the issue is resolved. If this is indeed fixed, I'll proceed with other add-ons.

It is simple and good in the Hispanic community to like quite a lot.

Still there are probably no pressing items other than existing

Hi all,

Resource Monitor 20.11 is now available. This version includes
localization updates. As always, you can check for the new version
through Add-on Updater or visiting NVDA community add-ons website.



Also, for our adventurous users, November 13th development snapshot of
Resource Monitor is also available (you must tell Add-on Updater to
check for development releases). This snapshot includes a preview of
what's coming in version 21.01 (January 2021), including:

* Windows version messages: the words "Windows version" are no longer
announced (NVDA+Shift+6).
* Windows build.revision: if you are using Windows 10, you will notice
that NVDA will announce build.revision (such as 19042.630). This
announcement is now available for Windows 8.1 and Server 2012 R2 users
as well. I will not make it available for Windows 7 and 8 because they
are no longer supported by Microsoft (for consumers), and I'll not be
accepting any suggestions or pull requests regarding it.
* Internal changes to prepare for future NVDA releases (too early to
talk about specifics).



As always, feedback is appreciated.

Cheers,

Hi Héctor and Paul!

 

Right, addonPackager is very good add-on.

NVDAExtensionGlobalPlugin is great too.

Congratulations to both of you.

Well, I just looked at it and indeed NVDAExtensionGlobalPlugin has the feature of utilities for add-ons.

Well I think NVDAExtensionGlobalPlugin in the option to manage the add-ons is more focused on developers.

The Add-on Packer is more for the user who wants to have a copy of the add-ons quickly, so they can share them, have them saved etc. Having the possibility to pack them all at once or choose the ones you want and be able to pack them.

What you have in your add-on I think is much more advanced and focused on a more advanced and specific but also usable by normal users.

By the way, I take this opportunity to congratulate you because you have just loaded several add-ons that I had installed and some that were no longer going to be updated.

NVDAExtensionGlobalPlugin just got a slot in my NVDA.

Congratulations.

Best regards

Hi.
For information, this functionality exists also in the
NVDAExtensionGlobalPlugin add-on, but rather oriented add-on development.
Best regards.

Well the first thing to apologize for my English is simply thanks to the translator.

 

Well a few months ago I started programming some things for NVDA in the Spanish community.

 

Well, after being a user of NVDA a long time ago I found a problem that for those who have the knowledge is not such.

There is a reality in NVDA and it is the amount of non official complements that there are.

 

Well, many times we lose the original, the page where we downloaded the complement or simply shared it and we do not remember who shared it.

 

Who knows how to repackage the add-on has no problem but there are users who do not know the process.

 

Well, that is what happened to me that I had to share an add-on with a friend and when I was doing the whole process I thought it would be great if NVDA had something that would facilitate that very same thing, to generate again an add-on already installed.

 

Well, I leave you to see what you think of (addonPackager.

 

In Github there is all the information about how to use it, although it is very simple.

 

Once installed in Tools we will have the possibility to launch the addon.

 

The addon is currently translated into Spanish, French, Portuguese (Portugal) and Brazilian Portuguese.

 

It is simple and good in the Hispanic community to like quite a lot.

 

I know that surely you do not like this practice of repackaging an add-on directly from NVDA but being realistic this is something that is done from the beginning. Therefore consider after evaluating and putting in the documentation the corresponding security warnings to make such a tool that facilitates the whole process.

 

Well this is the link to the latest version of the add-on:

 

https://github.com/hxebolax/Add-on-packer/releases/download/0.6/addonPackager-0.6.nvda-addon

And this is the repository on Github:

Cordial greetings.
