Re: My Favorite NVDA add ons and Why!

Microsoft Word add-on was one. Also features of a program called
vTurbo were also added. Windows 10 App Essentials add-on gets some
features added to NVDA every release.

I think the Profile Dictionary add-on that is being circulated will
also be incorporated into NVDA. The Phone Operation Helper add-on has
similar features to those in Next snapshots. There are many more.

i ment general addons which were not specific for particular version
of windows and they were added in to nvda.

Some features in the Windows 10 add on are added to NVDA over time. The
Windows 10 add on is a way to get features to users as quickly as
possible.
Then, many are added to NVDA over time. It seldom, if ever, happens that
features are added from other add ons.

Okay!

That is why the VLC add on is so important then. With the add on, you
can
tab to all controls that people can see, as far as I know. Why do some
not
want to use the add on?

You won't hear anything about where you are tabbing to without the add
on.

Just open VLC, and start tabbing a lot. You will tab to them and you can
press NVDA+Enter to activate many buttons on the screen without going
into
any menus!

Also, you appear to be assuming the the feature is available with the
add
on. the description of the program doesn't say that more playback
commands
are available. It only says that you can move back and forward in
playback
commands by tabbing and shift tabbing. Unless you have other
information,
that doesn't indicate whether and what other commands may be available
than
in the play menu.

Perhaps you can't. If you look at

https://www.vlchelp.com/vlc-media-player-shortcuts/

you will not see either of these listed as shortcut keys in the program.
That doesn't mean that they are not available, someone may give the
information, but it raises the question of whether these settings can be
changed from the keyboard.

For some reason, the name of that add on did not get pasted under

Pascal, you are so welcome. I personally use all of these add ons all
of
the
time with NVDA. I encourage you to find these add ons and try them all
out.
They greatly enhance the NVDA experience, and they allow you to do so
much
more. Let me know if you can find them, and how they work for you!
I wanted to give these awesome NVDA add on developers some input
concerning
why I like using these add ons so much. I put the same email on the
NVDA
add
ons group.
Have a great one, Pascal!

Hi David,
Thank you for providing the list of addons. I would have never taken

Subject: [nvda] My Favorite NVDA add ons and Why!

Hi all,
I use NVDA 30 percent more, because of these add ons.
Here are my favorite add ons, and I explain why!
Here is the list!
NVDA add ons I love the most and why.
I want to share with all of you, which add ons really impress me the
most,
and the ones I am getting the most use out of by using them.
Number One:
Clip Contents Designer; Status: running; Version: 3.5; Author: Noelia
Ruiz
Martínez <nrm1977@... <mailto:nrm1977@...> >
I very often want to copy some material, and append more material to
the
clipboard. I do this a lot to edit and create tutorials.
I love this add on, and it helps me a lot. Thank you!
Number two:
Clipspeak; Status: running; Version: 1.0; Author: Damien Sykes-Lindley
<damien@... <mailto:damien@...> > 2
of
17
It gives me such peace of mind to hear what I have on the clip board,
before
I paste it somewhere. Thank you!
Number three:
Enhanced Aria; Status: running; Version: 1.3-dev; Author: Jose Manuel
Delicado <jmdaweb@... <mailto:jmdaweb@...> >
I can now use two great TV web sites to stream movies and TV shows,
because
this add on lets me access the ARIA That I need to enjoy these
streaming
web
sites. Thank you!
Number four:
Golden Cursor moves the mouse with the keyboard; Status: running;
Version:
1.0-dev; Author: Salah Atair <atair1978@...
<mailto:atair1978@...> >, Wafeeq Taher 5 of 17
I want all to know how much I use this add on. Here is an example.
My wife will move the mouse pointer to a place that I cannot find. I
can
then press a command to hear what pixel position the mouse pointer is
on.
I
can save that pixel position, and my wife never has to put the mouse
pointer
there again. I just press a command, and it brings up all saved mouse
pointer positions that I have saved. I label my saved pixel positions,
like
fast forward in Groove, for example. I can open the list of saved
pixel
positions, and arrow to that Groove button, and press enter, and the
actual
mouse pointer goes right there.
Sometimes, you cannot get the mouse pointer to route to where the
review
cursor is located, and with one time of sighted assistance, you can
save
the
pixel position where the sighted person put the mouse pointer, and you
can
go back there yourself from then on. Thank you very much, and I pray
you
keep developing and supporting this add on!
Number five:
Lambda math editor addon; Status: running; Version: 1.1.8-dev; Author:
Alberto Zanella <lapostadialberto@...
<mailto:lapostadialberto@...> > 6 of 17
This add on, has allowed me to tutor highr math concepts on my on line
math
tutoring business to sighted people.
I am getting access to more hier math topics, and I can use this add
on
to
read the other person's work when they send it back to me. Thank you!
Number six:
Place markers; Status: running; Version: 8.1-dev; Author: Noelia
<nrm1977@... <mailto:nrm1977@...> >, Chris
<llajta2012@... <mailto:llajta2012@...> > 7 of 17
This add on has saved me so much time every day. Many times a day, I
put
a
place marker somewhere that I will return to later. This is the place
marker
feature in JAWS. Thank you! This saves me a lot of time.
Number Seven
I absolutely love this add on. Many times, I am in a program when I
want
to
here the version of the application. I really missed doing thiswith
JAWS.
Now, I can use this feature with NVDA. Thank you!
Number Eight:
Speak Passwords; Status: running; Version: 1.0; Author: Tyler Spivey
<tspivey@... <mailto:tspivey@...> > 10 of 17
This is priceless. I love being to hear the characters I type in
instead
of
hearing * for every character. Thank you!
Number Nine:
Speech history review and copying; Status: running; Version:
2017.05.13;
Author: [u'Tyler Spivey', u'James Scholes'] 11 of 17
I love this add on. I am using it as I type this article. I down arrow
through my add ons, and I just press F12 to paste what NVDA said to
the
clip
board. Again, this is the speach history in JAWS. These add ons are
allowing
us to use NVDA and get these JAWS features. Thank you!
Number Ten:
Insert Symbols; Status: running; Version: 1.0; Author: Erion
<rob.mail@... <mailto:rob.mail@...> > 12 of 17
I can insert hundreds of symbols in a document, Facebook post, or
email,
that I never had to choose from with JAWS. There are so many symbols
that
you can choose from, I have not heard of many of them. I absolutely
love
this add on! Thank you!
Number Eleven:
Virtual Review; Status: running; Version: 2.2; Author: Rui Batista
<ruiandrebatista@... <mailto:ruiandrebatista@...> > and
NVDA
Addon Team 13 of 17
This add on, speeds up tasks that I often do. It is not object
navigation,
but I can get access to text and more on the screen so quickly with
this
add
on! Thank you!
VLC Media Player; Status: running; Version: 1.2; Author: Javi
Dominguez
<fjavids@... <mailto:fjavids@...> > 14 of 17
I love using VLC Media Player. This add on, allows me to tab and hear
many
of the controls on the screen, and I have access to the repeat and
shuffle
toggles. Thank you!
Weather Plus; Status: running; Version: 4.4 15.06.2017; Author:
Adriano
Barbieri <adrianobarb@... <mailto:adrianobarb@...> >. 15 of
17
I really love this weather add on. I use it constantly. My wife asks
me
about the weather. and I simply press NVDA+Shift+W and get the
forcast.
What
I like most, is that it is copied to the clipboard, and I can paste
the
entire forecast into a text document like Note Pad.
I love this add on, because I have many cities that I can find out the
weather in. Thank you so much!
Number Twelve
Windows 10 App Essentials; Status: running; Version: 20170705-dev;
Author:
Joseph Lee <joseph.lee22590@...
<mailto:joseph.lee22590@...>
, Derek Riemer
<driemer.riemer@... <mailto:driemer.riemer@...> > and
others
Thank you Joseph! I have used this add on to get much more
accessibility
in
universal apps, the start area, settings app, and other places. This
add
on
has allowed me to use many of the win10 universal apps for a long
time!
Thank you!
Number Thirteen:
Windows 10 Calculator; Status: running; Version: 1.0; Author: Joseph
Lee
<joseph.lee22590@... <mailto:joseph.lee22590@...> > 17 of
17
I use the Windows 10 calculator all of the time. I do scientific
calculations with it many times a day. This add on has really helped
me
a
lot. Thank You!
This is it!
The summary, is that many features of JAWS are in these add ons. NVDA
is
much more powerful with these add ons, and I appreciate all of your
time
and
work to make these add ons, and do all that you do for the NVDA
community.
I
now use NVDA 90 percent of the time, because of these add ons. They
have
really made a difference, and I want you all to know!
