Re: Smarter Playlists web app with drag and drop NVDA addon

Joshua Tubbs

Yeah, I knew about some of those. Dragging and dropping components determines the flow of the program though. I assumed that connecting components to each other would eliminate the need for drag and drop, but the program won't run despite this since it doesn't recognize the order the components are in. I've asked around and am getting help and maybe some additional keyboard shortcuts can be added to move the components around in the builder. NVDA's locking the mouse and routing the mouse to where I want to drop doesn't work, I thought that it may have.

Did you catch this, on their About Page:

Are there any keyboard shortcuts?

Yes. Here's the set:

  • Delete key (or backspace on some keyboards) - Delete the currently selected component
  • (or space) make a green-port connection between the two components
  • make a red-port connection between the two components
  • make an orange-port connection between the two components
  • make a blue-port connection between the two components
  • delete the connection between the two selected components

The above really isn't about NVDA, but it may take the entire need for drag and drop out of the picture.

It used to be understood that if you published and profited from a mass media platform you should also be responsible for its content. That idea is nowadays considered quaintly archaic. There is no real accountability, and almost limitless ability to post any kind of ridiculous and scurrilous nonsense. God help us.
