I just had a look at your addon and it
doesn’t seem to be compatible with the latest stable version
of NVDA. That’s unfortunate.
Ther is a add-on, develloped by me, that allows the reading
of status bar in Windows 10 File explorer...
You can get it at:
The option that I think Janet wants does not exist in NVDA,

Normally, as Gene noted, you should be
able to use NVDA+end / NVDA+shift+end to read the status
bar, however there is a bug preventing that from Working
in File Explorer in Windows 10 - https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/6769
One thing you can do, is use NVDA's
next and previous object commands (NVDA+numpad 4 /
NVDA+shift+left arrow for previous, NVDA+numpad 6 /
NVDA+shift+right arrow for next). That will move object
navigation through the items in the list. One quirk is
it won't announce "selected" for items which are
selected, but will announce "not selected" for items
which are not selected. (It's not so much a bug as, 99%
of the time people are moving through the list one item
at a time and don't want to hear every item as
use tab and shift+tab to ensure you
are in list view for selecting files.

nothing is difficult unless you make it appear so.
