Hi Tony! Thank you very much for all these add-ons, especially
WordNav. I used that Tony enhancements add-on a lot in VS Code but it
had to be enabled and disabled, since in UIA NVDA it said selected and
unselected all the time.
Since you corrected that, I imagine you already know how to do it, you
could correct that same error for IndentNav? In Visual Studio has that
behavior, NVDA says selected and unselected every time I use it. It
also happens to me in Windows 10 Sticky Notes, which also uses UI

Thank you very much in advance!

sentence nav, word nav, and symbols, does sound quite interesting.

Will give it a try.

Hello all,

This is Tony, author of many NVDA add-ons. During holidays I updated
many of my add-ons, and wrote two new add-ons, so I would like to
share them with you guys. This is a long email, so please feel free to
navigate by headings!

Please note that links on the official website have not been updated,
as it seems that nobody has access to that website anymore. Therefore,
please download directly from Github, download links included below.

New add-ons:


It takes word navigation to the next level in NVDA. It standardizes
what exactly does word mean, e.g. does it include punctuation before
and after, moreover, it offers various definitions of word, some of
which might be useful for software developers, for example when they
are working with camelCaseIdentifiers. It redefines Control+Left/Right
keystrokes, as well as it adds optional Control+Windows+Left/Right
keystrokes. Configuration panel included!



Console toolkit

This is a collection of tools for heavy console users. Among its
features are:

·More realtime speaking of console output

·* Beep on update

·Control+V shortcut now works in ssh connections

·Editing of current prompt in accessible window

·Capturing command output, including multi-page, and displaying it in
an accessible window

Please note, it supports the default Windows console, a.k.a. command
prompt, as well as windows PowerShell.





This add-on allows to read text sentence by sentence using Alt+Up/Down
keystroke. I managed to improve its performance a lot, now it reads
sentences much faster, especially in large paragraphs. I also added
experimental support for Microsoft Word and WordPad – before this
version built-in NVDA logic applied to sentence navigation in these
programs, and many users have complained about that. Also, a number of
bugfixes. Also I wrote extensive documentation, since sentence finding
code has become so complicated, even I myself is having a hard time
reading my own code after a couple of years since first release 😊





BrowserNav contains a set of improvements to browse mode in NVDA.
Besides a number of bugfixes, this new version includes command to
jump to next text written in different style (bound to tilde, that
weird key right above Tab), and a command to scroll down to reveal all
the hidden content, bound to backslash. That last command might be
useful for websites, that load content dynamically. This includes
Youtube, that doesn’t load the entire page and expects users to scroll
down to reveal certain elements, and also so called infinite scroll
webpages, such as Amazon and Facebook.




Tony’s enhancements

This add-on is an incubator for my experimental ideas, yet I believe
many of them might be quite handy for many users. In particular, this
time WordNav and Console toolkit mentioned above have graduated from
this incubator. 😊 Among new features that I added are QuickSearch
command, that allows to quickly find predefined text or regular
expression in text files. I personally find it useful for editing
markdown, because you can set the regular expression to search for
next/previous heading, and also for programming. Another new feature
allows to set system priority for NVDA process – this might improve
responsiveness of NVDA, especially when CPU load is high.





NVDA Symbols

This is not an add-on, but rather a comprehensive (more or less) table
of unicode characters with their proper English names. In particular,
it includes math symbols (the ones that are not defined in NVDA),
Greek letters, technical symbols, various arrows, etc. If you’re
Greek, you would probably want to exclude Greek letters from this
dictionary. If you speak CJK languages, you would probably want to
exclude fixed-width punctuation page from that dictionary. This table
would need to be added manually to your symbols.dic file in NVDA user
config directory.



Let me know what you think!

Belated happy new year!
