Re: NVDA Plugin Development - Get text highlighted with mouse

Gene
 

Are you saying the only thing you want NVDA to do is read highlighted text and not perform any other functions of a screen-reader?  Never speak at other times, never use browse mode on a web page, etc?  This sounds to me to go far beyond a simple plugin.  There may be other programs that do what you want that aren't screen-readers.  Evidently, this person is sighted.  That appears to be the case from the implications of what you wrote, but it wasn't specified.

I'm not sure if this the correct forum, but I can attempting to get some more details on how to get the currently highlighted text so that it can be announced.  If this is the wrong, forum, please can you advise on the forums that NVDA developers look at to get this type of question answered.

Basically, I am attempting to create a simple plugin for NVDA, where NVDA is running quietly in the background, but when a specific key-sequence (say NDA+shift+A is pressed) will trigger NVDA to speak the currently highlighted text.  I've found out how to switch on and off the speak mode from a plugin, but I cannot find any API documentation on the methods available, and objects returned from the api python module.

[Background: I am working with a stroke victim who is having difficulty reading blocks of text.  He does not want a full screen reader, he just wants the contents of message bodies read out, and I've spoken to another visually impaired person who would like this type of function.]

Other observation: is it likely that I will need to create application specific plugins for different browsers?  If so, please can somebody point me to the APIs for Google Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and IE.

Hi,

I’ll forward this query to the actual NVDA development forum.

Tracking mouse on second monitor

davewp196@...
 

I'm not sure if this is a configuration issue or a fundamental restriction with NVDA 2016.3, but I find that mouse tracking does not appear to be working when scrolling over a web page (in Google Chrome) when positioned on a secondary monitor. (extended desktop).  


If I move the Google Chrome window to the main monitor, everything seems to work OK, in that when I move the mouse of the text on a web page it is spoken.  [Note: Context menus [right-click mouse] are working OK, it is just that web text is not announced as you move the mouse over the webpage.

Thanks

Dave

Announcing version 16.12 of ObjPad and Enhanced Touch Gestures

 

Hi all,

 

I’m delighted to announce the immediate release of version 16.12 of Object Pad (often shortened to ObjPad) and Enhanced Touch Gestures. The biggest highlight is enhanced ways to navigate the web via browse mode.

 

Enhanced Touch Gestures (http://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/enhancedTouchGestures.en.html):

·         Added support for Microsoft Edge, Chrome, PDF’s and other browse mode scenarios (requires NVDA 2016.3 or later installed on a touchscreen computer running Windows 8 and later).

·         Added lists and landmarks to elements you can navigate via web touch mode.

 

ObjPad (http://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/objPad.en.html):

·         Added a fourth mode called “web mode” that allows you to use up or down arrow keys to choose the navigation element and left/right arrows to navigate between elements.

·         Web mode works in Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Microsoft Word, PDF’s and others where browse mode can be used.

 

Enjoy.

Cheers,

Joseph

From the manual:
Automatic focus mode for focus changes
This option allows focus mode to be invoked if focus changes. For example,
when on a web page, if you press tab and you land on a form, if this option

is checked, focus mode will automatically be invoked.
Automatic focus mode for caret movement
This option, when checked, allows NVDA to enter and leave focus mode when
using arrow keys. For example, if arrowing down a webpage and you land on an

edit box, NVDA will automatically bring you into focus mode. If you arrow
out of the edit box, NVDA will put you back in browse mode.
Audio indication of Focus and Browse modes
If this option is enabled, NVDA will play special sounds when it switches
between browse mode and focus mode, rather than speaking the change.

My comments:
One way to open the browse mode dialog is with the command insert b or
insert b if you are using the desktop layout. You can use either insert.
This command may work in the laptop layout as well, I haven't checked.

In this case, we don't know what behavior you want. It isn't just a
question of turning this behavior on and off. Different options cause
different behavior as the manual excerpt shows.

One of the biggest issue I have come across are weird keyboards. I encountered one for Guide yesterday, sold by Dolphin, which has no windows key or an alt/control key, and esc is big and just above the cursors, no function keys and no keypad but a weird key that works a bit like a laptop key.
Insert is on the right second column in.
Nightmare and no home key markings either.
