An addon can’t be better as what the screen reader itself can provide, but this addon makes it easier to handle the screen reader functions..

I have not used the add-on yet. Will it make some applications more NVDA-accessible? For instance, will VLC Media Player be more accessible with it? If so, it is great.

this is very niceley done and useful. I like to see the scan mode feature in NVDA.
Regards and many thanks,
One of the strengths of NVDA is superb support for object navigation. However, there were requests from people who wanted a more intuitive way to do this, including using just the arrow keys to navigate between objects, and since early this year, a way for NVDA to have something similar to scan mode in Narrator (Windows 10 version 1607). The wait is over: introducing ObjPad, an add-on that introduces more intuitive object navigation facility and basic implementation of scan mode feature, along with possibilities such as one key command to move focus to the current navigator object and more planned for the future.
The add-on (for now, a development snapshot) can be found at:
Feedback is appreciated.
