Luke there is talking dosbox at.
In there there is a dosbox for nvda file.
It uses a file called redir to emulate things, and the nvda
controler, it aint perfect but works.
The other thing you do use use a bns emulator and asap or jaws
for dos inside the package.
I guess it would be nice to actually use the actual dosbox actual
package with nvda though.
Hi folks. I’d like to use DosBox, a piece
of software that emulates an MS-DOS environment. (If you don’t
know what I’m talking about, you’re probably younger than 30.
Lol.) Anyhow, DosBox simulates the text-based DOS prompt but
isn’t actually a text application. As far as NVDA is
concerned, the DosBox window is all graphics.
Are there any strategies for making
something like this accessible for us NVDA users? I’m a
developer and recently started learning Python so I can author
NVDA add-ons. Could an add-on be created that monitors the
DosBox screen and translates it to NVDA-readable text, perhaps
employing OCR or something? If so, would anyone want to
partner on such a project?
