The add on is in Dutch and if you do the following on the
installed version of NVDA you can have it in English. Press the
Windows key, then arrow to all apps, then NVDA, then NVDA user
configuration, then press the Enter key. Locate the addons
folder, then locate the object enhancer folder, then press the
Locate the Doc folder, there will be 2 folders inside of it.
Locate the Nl folder then copy the readme.html file. Go back one
step and locate the En folder and paste it in there. It should
override the other readme file. Now when you bring up the help
section in the addon, the first part will be in Dutch and the
rest will be English.
For a portable version do the following. If it is in the NVDA
folder, locate the user configuration folder, then press the
Enter key. Locate the add ons folder then press the Enter key.
Locate the object enhancer folder, then press the Enter key.
Locate the Doc folder, then press the Enter key. There will be 2
folders inside of it. Locate the Nl folder, then press the Enter
key and copy the readme.html file. Go back one step and locate
the En folder and press the Enter key and paste it in there. It
should override the other readme file. Now when you bring up the
help section in the add on, the first part will be in Dutch and
the rest will be English.
If after that has been done and you hear NVDA speaking in
another language, use the NVDA key + Ctrl key + the letter V.
Next, tab down until you hear NVDA say Automatic language
switching (when supported) and uncheck that box. Save your
settings, then open the add on help section. The first part will
be in Dutch and the rest will be in English.
If you do not want to do the above, there is an English text
file which you can read within the zip file.
To be quite
honest, we forgot that we had this add-on made. My own boss
asked me the other day to look into a functionality to label
objects in NVDA as they can do in JAWS, turns out we already had
something on the table :).
I'll give it some love where needed, since it would be
tremendously useful for our own work as well. If anyone has a
pull-request that it wants to push then I will look into it.
