Ok Thanks joasiph 
i'm currently testing your program. 
I asked Quentin C from NVAccess to add this feature in to the NVDA Screen Reader and he got back to me very quickly and he said that they are working on this program and he provide me a web link to the Screen Curtain.
Thanks Joasiph again for this wonderful add on. 
I don't like people to see after my shoulder. When I'm doing work on my Computer.

There may or may not be announcements regarding this add-on on this list for a while, as I plan to shift attention to the corresponding NVDA feature in order to apply lessons learned through this add-on. The next big thing might be ability to update Windows 10 App Essentials through Add-on Updater, but that won’t happen until October at the earliest.

Hi all,

Add-on Updater August 27^th build (proof of concept) is now available. This build brings:

  * User experience feedback: when add-on updates dialog appears, all
    add-on checkboxes will be checked by default. This is in response to
    feedback from people regarding user experience of having this
    checked/unchecked. My original intent was to check them, but
    couldn’t find a solution for a while. This fix also addresses a
    problem where users of most recent releases could not update their
    add-ons due to missing wxPython attribute when running NVDA 2018.2.1.
  * Development snapshot download: fixed an issue where if you told
    Add-on Updater to download development versions of add-ons, it would
    download stable releases instead. This was internal to the add-on –
    no changes to add-on server.

Important notes:

  * If you are running NVDA 2018.2.x and happen to use August 25^th
    build (the original, not revision A), you need to apply this update
    manually. To do so, go to NVDA add-ons website
    (, go to “add-ons under development”, look
    for Add-on Updater, and download the build offered.
  * This is a proof of concept add-on, thus no stable build will be
    released and should be used to send feedback regarding add-on update
    feature in NVDA (which I’m working on).
