Thanks. this is what i was looking for. Anyone know, does nvdaremote have any command line switches?

Yes, and you can specify options. The usual way is through Run dialog (this dialog's receiving some needed tweaks next year), but you can launch NVDA via PowerShell, Command Prompt, and if adventurous (and if you know the exact executable name for the variant you need to use), Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL).

The command line options (in a typical Unix-style help message/man page):

NVDA: NonVisual Desktop Access, free and open-source screen reader for Microsoft Windows

nvda {-m | -r } [-f filename] [-l loglevel] [--disable-addons | --debug-logging]
... and additional switches (one add-on participates in providing extra switches)

Fullpathtonvda (e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\NVDA\nvda.exe)


-m - minimal (no startup sound)
-r - restart NVDA
-f filename - file name for the log file
-l loglevel - logging level
--disable-addons - disables all add-ons
--debug-logging - turns debug logging on for the session

I might be forgetting important ones or may have messed up some. As for add-ons that participate in providing additional command-line switches, StationPlaylist Studio add-on adds several switches related to add-on configuration.

Subject: [nvda] Running nvda with command line switches?


Is it possible to run nvda from the command line with different options?

For example, what i'm thinking is to have a script that launches nvda and automatically brings up nvda remote.

Anyone have any thoughts for me?
