Hi folks,
I've installed the screen curtain add on.

It appears to be running when I go in to the add on manager, but it
doesn't appear just under the tools menu. Also, it does not appear
when I search for it in the gestures / tools area.

What am I missing?

Hey Joseph

The add-on works like a charm on my Lenovo laptop. I have also set up
a toggle hotkey, Windows key+s in my case. I am thrilled about this
add-on, because I often have to work with confidential information
and one never knows when there might be prying eyes around.

Excellent work!

Kind regards

    Gesture assignment: yes, it should be mentioned, and I’ll do just
    that for Screen Curtain for the next release (in September).

    Hi Joseph

    Just downloaded the screen curtain add on hearing screen curtain on
    and off i like that much better than the beeps.

    I also checked out the documentation as well and had a quick read.

    I think maybe some people may know or some will not that you can
    asign a short cut key to turn it on and off. There was no mention in
    the help section or where to go if you are a new user of the add on.

    I Until i looked under the gestures section then tools then screen
    curtain i did not know where this could be done.

    Some people may not be aware you can asign a gesture to some of the
    add ons.

    Do you reckon it needs to be mentioned or not just looking at it
    from a new user.

        Hi all,

        Screen Curtain August 7^th build will hit the air in about half
        an hour from now. This build includes following changes as a
        result of basic add-on review:

          * Settings: now configurable. You can now ask NVDA to not
            enable screen curtain when it starts (default behavior from
            now on). Also, the add-on is ready for configuration profile
            switches – that is, you can enable or disable screen curtain
            while in certain situations (using an app, for example).
          * Documentation: greatly improved. It now mentions new
            settings, toggle state, and a link to the actual NVDA issue
            is provided.
          * Toggle messages: instead of playing a tone whenever screen
            curtain is toggled, a message will be spoken and brailled.
            The tone will be heard if screen curtain is enabled when
            NVDA starts.
        Also, this add-on will once again show up on add-ons website
        under development section as it has gone through basic review

        Thank you.
