I cannot install this add-on either!

It said that it needs a minimum of NVDA 2021.1!

That is what I have, and I really need this add-on, because I need my
numpad to act like normal arrow keys instead of NVDA functions!

I don’t know how the other person was able to install it!

Have a great one!

Hello David,
I'm not finding this addon, but am definitely interested in it. If
you've got a url that would be great or maybe the dev could put it
the community addons page.

I don’t know why it is not on the Community  add-ons page but the
Global Commands Extension add-on add the ability to both detect
announce copy and paste and select, as far as I can see as well as
does for NVDA in it s default settings. So install that and the
is sorted. I stopped using ClipSpeak ages ago.
It includes a host of other invaluable features as well.  I
especially use
the multiple level volume controls, quick access to speech history
system tray short cuts. It also adds a setting to enable NVDA,
like Jaws,
to loop around with single letter navigation to the top of web
pages if no
more elements are found. So if you press H for heading and there
are no
more headings it will announce that you are going back to the top
of the
page and find the first heading again for you.  The announcement
this better than Jaws as you are clearly told what is happening. I
this particularly useful. This specific feature is not enabled by
   in Global Commands Extension and you have to enable it in

The best way to learn all the host of available features is to hit
plus J  which plays a tone to indicate that a layered series of
have been enabled , a bit like Jaws plus spacebar.  Now hitting
the H key
will open all the available commands in a menu from which you can
up and down to easily run each command and at the same time
learn the

keyboard shortcuts for each command.
I think it is a brilliant add-on and gets regularly updated
automatic notifications which come up in NVDA to invite update.
I have an older version of the actual add-on install but which the
add on
updated itself through NVDA to be compatible with the latest

Presumably you will need the latest initial add on version to work
in the
latest NVDA. A web search should find it I think.
I will try and find it myself if no search can find it.

I had the same thing.  I can only assume that it won't be
