Has anyone tested this addon?
I was wondering i anyone has tested the image description addon and how good is it?
I have created an addon for NVDA which providesÂ descriptionÂ for graphics/imagesÂ present on the web pages. The add on uses Microsoft's Computer Vision cognitive API to get aÂ descriptionÂ of theÂ imageÂ provided to it. Please find belowÂ the steps to use the add on and the dropboxÂ link to download it.
Steps to use add on:
Step 1: Generate a subscription key for using Microsoft Computer Vision cognitive API from the link below:
Please note that the key has to be created for theÂ Computer Vision API. Currently Microsoft provides the option to create a trial key for 30 days.
Step 2: Download and Install the NVDA Addon named Assistech_IIT_Delhi from the link ââ or from download button above.
For Addon installation instructions visithttps://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html#toc94
Step 3: From the add-on menu, select the options add API key and provide your subscription key for the cognition API.
Step 4: If you are behind a proxy, from the add on menu (the add-on is named as Assistech_IIT_Delhi) , select the options add proxy details and provide your proxy IP and port.Â
Step 3 and step 4 only need to be performed the first time or whenever either of your proxy details or subscription key changes.
Step 5: While navigating a webpage, whenever a graphic is encountered and is in focus, use keyboard shortcut NVDA+g. The image description and the confidence level returned b the API are provided as audio output. Use NVDA+gg to get the results (including the dominant colors present in the image) in a browseable message box. (Fetching results takes a few seconds.). If no result is obtained from API, appropriate speech message is returned.
I request you all to kindly test the add on and provide your feedback.
