Re: Visual Studio add-on.

Hi Mohammad,
I will try to think fo a workaround using texisting add-on code. I
spent some time reading the documentation for ENVDTE, which is the
automation library for Visual Studio exposed via a COM interface.

Do you think we could have a Skype call some time soon and plan some work?

Thanks for your reply. Thinking about the first issue with the
Since we are overwriting the control, can't we use the value of the
suggested completion and use NVDA's speech / braille functions to say
it / display it?

I think, we could also file a bug report to Microsoft and describe the
issue behind it.

actually, writing an app module for visual studio is on my to do list.
regarding the problems you mentioned with Intelisense:
don't know if most users will find it better without announcing the
positional info of each possible completion menu item. the problem here
also is not NVDA, the problem is how the list / menu item is exposed.
the name of the menu item includes that positional info.
regarding second problem: yes, i think that it is better for us all to
not have that lengthy announcement after the completion list is closed.

Ok, think have fixed those/the relevant errors - was my own mistake
since used a regular expression search/replace to strip out line
numbers when copied python script source from the gitHub page, but,
think have now fixed all the missing number values on line endings.

Still not rendering too much to me - file menu, new, project, and it
tells me it's the new project window, but, doesn't render any of the
internal controls in it.

Stay well

Ok, if look in the NVDA log, it's still throwing up errors, so seems
there might be an issue with how extracted source for the

So, sorry, NVDA is still not rendering much to me in terms of VS.Net
2015, so can't help with anything relating to intellisense, etc.

Sounds like a good place. Telling it off the top of my head. Cannot

But, getting back to my oryginal problem: how can we turn off
item possition in the Intelisense popup? And then hearing all th
the window title when we leave the popup after picking the function

Do I just place in the following path?

Hi Jacob,
The add-on is hosted at Github at the following URL:

The is invluded by default with NVDA.

The new project wizard is quite OK ofr me. I am using Windows 10
64-bit. Or maybe I am skipping some elements without knowing
they are
on the screen since NVDA is not getting them either.

I like VS for the Intelisense support, which is very convinient
comparason to Eclipse. You just start typing and get the list of
suggestions without dancing by pressing Control+Space as it
with Eclipse.

What is this VS 2015 add-on referred to, or is it just included
of NVDA itself?

Asking since also, at times, play around with VS.Net 2015
edition, but, for example, the new project dialogue doesn't
seem to
read/rendered by NVDA 2016.1 at the moment, and NVDA doesn't
to react to rest of environment either?

I am not familiar with Python on the daily basis, but can find
