Re: Proposal for a new braille feature


Hi Quentin,
I think without use of a hack from Jamie (NV Access), it becomes a bit hard to hunt down issues via GitHub. For me, a Google search with some keywords helps in locating the ticket in question or an issue that references the original ticket.

Thanks Joseph - I did look before adding the new issue but nothing else came up for me.

Hi everyone,

It turns out we do have several tickets regarding this suggestion.
Thus I’ll go ahead and close others.

Hi Jordy, everyone.

This is a good suggestion, and I've created an issue to officially
request it / track its implementation on Github:

Jordy particularly, if you are on GitHub, if you comment on that
issue, you will be notified of progress of the feature.

Kind regards

Hi I just did some research on this and I found out that alt + F7 goes
to the next misspelled word in Microsoft Office applications. so if
your cursor is blinking to show you which letter you are on with your
Braille display than the first letter of the misspelled word should
half the blinking cursor. please let us know if this works for you at
least as a temporary workaround. if it's actually effective then the
developers may not want to implement the feature the same as it would
have been in Jaws or supernova

Hope this helps,

Hi all,

I would like to propose a new feature for the braille output in NVDA.

In many other screenreaders, you can view miss spelled words (and bad
grammar) in braille with a line of dots 7 and 8, well or not blinking.
example: in Jaws I can activate a feature that helps in MS Office to
show spelling and grammar mistakes with a constant line of dots seven and eight.
In Supernova I can do the same, but there the line blinks.

Is it possible to add a feature as described above in NVDA 2016.3 or
in a newer version?

I cannot program in Python 2.7, or not good enough in Python 3.5, so I
can’t help, but I will help if I can!

Hope someone’ll add this proposal to GitHub!

Thanks in advance!

Best regards,

Jordy Deweer.
