Dear NVDA users across the world,
I'm pleased to announce to you the availability of the final
version of NVDA-addons.org, the first website created to serve as
an international directory for both official and unofficial NVDA
Indeed, this project aims to gather the download links of all
possible add-ons, within logical standards of usability. You won't
have to search in Google anymore to, at the end, find an outdated
version uploaded to Dropbox, or ask through your preferred mailing
list until someone is able to rescue and send you as an attachment
that add-on that is distributed from mailbox to mailbox for years.
In NVDA_addons.org, your favourite add-on may be hosted by
Dropbox, but we, both users and administrators, will make our best
to guarantee you its most updated release. Moreover, you'll be
able to know before downloading any add-on its exact compatibility
range and development status.
The platform has been self-developed by us and has the following
- Table of add-ons on the home page: As simple as typing
NVDA-addons.org in your preferred web browser. Last updated
add-ons are shown at the top and official add-ons, those
published at add-ons.nvda-project.org, are flagged as
- Filters: You can filter add-on table by add-on's name,
summary, release channel, minimum NVDA version and last tested
- Paginator: Browse the add-on table 50 by 50.
- Dedicated page for each add-on: See its author, website,
description and available downloads, with supported NVDA version
range for each of them.
- Direct download both from home page and add-on page.
- Supported by advancedAddonFiles: The directory already
contains all the add-ons added to the Spanish-speaking NVDA
Community website, NVDA.es. This is because NVDA-addons.org is
only an interface for advancedAddonFiles, the application that
manages add-on additions and updates.
- Automatic translator in all pages, powered by Google.
- top 10 downloaded add-ons: All pages include a widget showing
the 10 most downloaded add-on releases along with their last
tested NVDA version.
- Newsletter: With our newsletter, you'll get a digest of
updated and added add-ons each week, and also special notices
and information about review requests. Subscribe by sending a
blank message to news+subscribe@.... This is also
displayed as a widget in all pages.
- Donate: We'd prefer not to ask for donations, but the
Spanish-speaking NVDA Community Association, stablished in Spain
as a legal nonprofit, survives thanks to them. Maintaining
NVDA-addons.org is only one of our initiatives. You can donate
through PayPal, credit/debit card and GitHub Sponsors, using the
widget at the bottom of each page.
- Direct contact: We are human and willing to help. Send us your
thoughts, questions and suggestions to admin@....
How can you collaborate?
- Adding new add-ons: You can submit a review request for one
add-on that is not registered. It doesn't matter if you are its
author or not. Once we've verified it doesn't contain spam,
it'll be published to receive public comments regarding add-on
usability and security. In absence of them, or after they've
been resolved, the add-on will be added to the database. If
you've specified your email, you'll be given direct access to
update that add-on. You can also submit a review request for
already registered add-ons to discuss usability or security
- Letting us know of add-on updates: If you find an outdated
add-on in our database, don't hesitate to reach us at
admin@... with all the information you have about
the new version. We'll happy to publish that new version,
provieded that it's from the same author or we have reasonable
evidences of abandonment from that maintainer and a new one
continues the development.
What happens if you have an interested friend who doesn't know
English? That's, in fact, the idea behind the translate widget.
Just choose your native language and enjoy. We know that no
translation can match a human translation, but this is our easiest
and simplest solution to have NVDA-addons.org internationalized.
If you want to export our catalog to your local NVDA website,
don't forget that it's available in JSON format at
On the other hand, don't worry to write us a message in another
language. We'll make our best to reply you.
What is coming next? We're now announcing the first version of
the website but can't wait to think about the future. Héctor
Benítez has developed an add-ons store prototype for
NVDA-addons.org, which will be enhanced until it gets to a stable
version that we all can use to review the catalog and download the
add-ons we want from NVDA directly. You can download the
prototype, in spanish, from:
I really hope this new tool is useful for you and every NVDA user
you know. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
