A lot of these can be done with nvda add ons, though the prevent mute might be of interest if a stand alone package, given the mess sighted people ooften leave our machines in in just a ten second useage!

Hello all

Those of you who use and have come to love the free Stascom utilities by Jacques Stassen, take note that Stascom 2019 has just been released. This release has many new exciting features. To those who have not used the program, I recommend that you give it a try. You can download it from:

We have many times been down this route. The short answer is no, since the dependencies used by NVDA are PC specific and indeed windows specific. If you really wanted to do it it would in effect be a completely new screenreader that emulated the windows system but then of course mobile operating systems are nothing like windows and the concepts are totally different anyway. I think this in itself is why we have not seen massive adoption of touch screen windows systems except in niche environments.
Horses for courses as they say.

Are there any plans in the pipeline for developing an NVDA app for Android and IOS? Is it possible?
Right now, Talkback and Voiceover do support external keyboard, but it would be so much more convenient if there could be an NVDA application for mobile phones with similar commands as that of a PC. What do you guys think?

Re: Question about NVDA profiles and layouts

 

Yep, I got this add-on a while back.
However, as for layout switching in the way I described, I've never heard of anything about. So am wondering if it's possible at all :)

Subject: [nvda] Question about NVDA profiles and layouts


Hi folks,
So I have a question for you all, perhaps it has been asked here but if
so it was way before I joined this list so here it goes.
Is there any way to switch between the desktop and the laptop layout as
we switch between profiles created?
That is, suppose I have a profile created for a certain program and
there I configured to use the laptop keyboard, whereas out of this
profile my default layout is the desktop one.
When exiting that window of that program, would NVDA get back to the
default layout of my choice? Would it actually never change because
there isn't any way to do such a thing?
In case of it's the second option, don't you think it'd be interesting
trying to develop an add-on that would allow one to do that if so one wants?

The effort involved in "converting" NVDA to run on anything other than Windows
would in my opinion be greater than starting from scratch (but with a good
understanding of what a screenreader should provide for the user) and writing
new code.

Android (alongside which you might as well include Linux systems in general)
and iOS work so completely differently from Windows that very little of the
code which has been created for NVDA would be useful or transferrable.

I've no idea how "easily" the Linux Orca screenreader system might be
transferrable to Android, but that's about the only possibility I can think of
for re-using code from an existing project to work on a different operating
system.

Antony.

I remember that it was discussed a long time ago in the Romanian community. Someone suggested it  for Android and Linux. Anyway, I don't know if this will be possible in the future. However, I consider that an NVDA aapplication for IOS isn't necessary, as VoiceOver is a very good screen reader, That's my opinion as an IOS user.

Hi,


first, no, it is not possible.


This would not work, becuase:


  • You should program NVDA from the Scratch for each operating system.
  • Apple does not allow to execute binary Code and grab system information on iOS.
  • And many more problems...

Ali

Hi,

Personally, I'd say that both of these are highly unlikely. The amount of effort involved for android would most likely be immense, and apple's sandboxing infrastructure would make this impossible unless something drastically changed in their approach. Apples and oranges and all that.

Daniel

liked how I could review the output window as well.


I tried mirc, however found that reviewing output with object nav

contain all the text, and missed the last few lines.

Thanks for any help,
