Lock NVDA + f2 #addonrequest


adriani.botez@...
 

Dear Community,

Is it possible to create an addon which locks the keystroke NVDA + f2 so that every key which will be pressed will be sent through to the application? It would make sense for example in browser games or in some browser videoplayers. It should just offer the possibility to disable and enable this licking feature whenever needed.

You should be able to accomplish this by pressing NVDA+Space to enable focus mode, at least in web applications.

Just put it into forms or edit mode, or focus mode etc. That can be made stable by fiddling with the checkboxes for the auto switching options etc in the prefs.

Yes I use it for some media players as well that are embedded. It seems to work well. Of course it depends on the web page and the settings of browse mode checkboxes.

The problem is ignoring keys causes ignored keys to be ignored, so you'd have to special case nvda+f2
