Hello Ralf,

Here is the procedure:

In Total Commander:

Ctrl+f to go to ftp

Tab twice to reach New Connection and press Enter

First edit box should be "Connection Details" (I hope it corresponds, because I have Total Commander in Italian). This
is where ou should enter the connection name for future use.

Tab once to reach Host Name (not readable

Then tab three times, and you reach Username (not readable)

Tab once and you reach Password (it doesn't say Password, but it says something like "Textbox protected"

Tab twice and you'll find another silent textbox; I don't know what it
should be...

Tab again and another silent editbox will appear.

Tab once and there's a button that isn't spoken.

That's all.

I'm using the latest version of Total Commander and the latest Alpha of

hth, and thanks for your work.

Hi Ollie,

I'm the author of this addon and use ftp as well. I never missed anything, lol.
Can you give me a step by step description about what text boxes you are speaking and where I can find them? I can
try to make them read.

Thanks Jarek.

I've installed it, but it doesn't tackle the unreadable edit boxes in FTP. It doesn't really matter, because I'm so
to them, but it might be difficult for others.

I've been in contact with Christian Ghisler, the dev of Total Commander for many years now, and he had explained why
those text boxes cannot be read by screen readers, but I don't remember the technical explanation he gave me.

Hello Jarek,

I didn't know there was an add-on for Total Commander and NVDA.

It would be interesting to see if it makes some parts of the ftp
connection settings.

Where did you find the add-on, please?

Thaks, ciao,

Thank you very much and excuse my English.

Greetings to all
I have both Free Commander and Total Commander installed on my
I thought Nvda would announce the panels at Total Commander, but it
When I press Nvda + T, only the Total Commander window is reported.
The Tab key does not report panels.
So I want to ask if any of you are using Total Commander, and
whether it will ever be implemented into Nvda by announcing panels
in Total Commander.
