Re: Screen Shade/curtain?

Monitors normally have one as do most laptops. However to me if its not going to do much for the battery then really all you need is to make it black from anyone hanging around point of view.

People tell me that many folk are very lax, even getting up in a library leaving the sscreen on with their personal data on it.

I think an addon to dim the screen would be nice. Does anyone know if an
external program exists to dim the screen?

Hi, I remember that GitHub post, as long as I read about pithon
language, it does not allow us to do anything with the display,
anyways, I glad to hear that Joseph has some idea about screen shaid,
because I also need an addon like this, now jaws has this feature, and
I’m waiting to use this feature in NVDA, please someone creat it

Not yet, with a GitHub issue created to talk about this. I have some
opinions about it, but won’t go there yet.

VoiceOver has had screen curtain feature for a long while and JAWS
recently got screen shade.

Does NVDA have a similar feature via an add-on or natively?
