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
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outdated version uploaded to Dropbox, or ask through your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
The platform has been self-developed by us and has the
- 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 issues.
- 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 https://nvda-addons.org/files/get.php?addonslist
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: https://nvda-addons.org/files/get.php?file=tienda
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.
