Hi Scott and
to a guide on writing NVDA add-ons, yes there is one.
before we go any further, think carefully if your proposal
is unique to NVDA. If it is an app that can be made
accessible yet the developer is unwilling to take action,
then it should be an add-on. If it is a feature that can be
done through web browser extensions, then no, it should not
be an NVDA add-on unless we get a really good justification
The reason I
ask you to think carefully about this is because the add-ons
community has received proposals similar to yours in the
past. After discussing with the community, some did become
add-ons, while others became something else, the biggest
criteria being if a proposal is something that is unique to
Yes I have programmed before. I am not a python
programmer but should be able to pick that up. Is there a

requires significant commitment to see it through.
It also sounds like you're describing something
that would interface with Blackboard, Moodle, or similar.
If so, those are entirely accessible via normal web
