Hi Joe, Thanks for your updates.  I forgot where to go to get this new add on updater.  I have nvda 19.2.

Can you shoot me an email with the link to your site or the updater file?

Thanks in advance.

Subject: [nvda] Joseph Lee's add-ons wave 1: Add-on Updater 20.01 #AddonRelease

 

Hello NVDA users,

 

For the next few days, I’ll be releasing first 2020 updates for various add-ons (for some, the very last version from me). For most add-ons they will require NVDA 2019.3 or later – if you are using 2019.2.1 or earlier, you can ignore these releases for now except Add-on Updater.

 

As first part of release wave, Add-on Updater 20.01 is now available. This is a mandatory update (compatible with NVDA 2019.2 and later) as it is designed to prepare the community for NVDA 2019.3. After installing 20.01, you’ll see a message about NVDA 2019.3 and add-ons. If you wish to see which add-ons are compatible (majority are), select “compatibility” button offered.

 

Note: Add-on Updater 20.01.x is the last series to be compatible with NVDA 2019.2. Shortly after NVDA 2019.3 is released, another update to Add-on Updater will show up, this time compatible with 2019.3 and later only.

Cheers,

Joseph

Joseph Lee's January 2020 add-on updates wave 3: goodbye Easy Table Navigator, Golden Cursor, ObjPad, SystrayList, Virtual Review #addonrelease

 

Hello all,

 

The next wave of January 2020 add-on releases consists of letting go of add-ons I’m no longer maintaining. These include Easy Table Navigator, Golden Cursor, ObjPad, SystrayList, and Virtual Review. These five add-ons (plus Screen Curtain) were maintained on behalf of the community for a while, and in order to reduce my workload, I’m letting go of these. For some, another maintainer will be maintaining them, while others are looking for new homes.

 

Update details (updates will show up in a few hours from now):

 

  • Easy Table Navigator, ObjPad, Virtual Review: updated with modern NVDA features.
  • Golden Cursor and SystrayList: not only updated to use modern NVDA features, they are incompatible with old releases. For SystrayList, donation request dialog has been removed.

 

Note that all of these add-ons now require NVDA 2019.3 or later (if you are using NVDA 2019.2.1 or earlier, you can ignore these updates for now).

Cheers,

Joseph

Joseph Lee's 2020 add-on releases wave 2: Resource Monitor, StationPlaylist, Windows 10 App Essentials #addonrelease

 

Hello all,

 

In continuing with January 2020 add-on updates for Joseph Lee’s add-ons, three add-ons are seeing updates today:

 

  • Resource Monitor: localization updates.
  • StationPlaylist: localization updates and strictly powered by Python 3.
  • Windows 10 App Essentials: localization updates and last release series to support Windows 10 Version 1809 (October 2018 Update).

 

Note that all three add-on updates require NVDA 2019.3 beta or later (if you are using NVDA 2019.2.1 or earlier, you can ignore this add-on for now).

Cheers,

Joseph

It’s right-Alt+5 on the US international keyboard – that is, the digit 5 on the main number row.

For the benefit of anyone using an English (British) Keyboard layout, the Euro (€) can also be generated by holding down the right hand Alt key (Labelled “Alt Gr”) and pressing the number 4 on the top row.

For those who do not have a numeric keypad on their keyboards I'd suggest using the Windows built-in program Character Map.  You can use the search for field to search for a symbol by name.  Searching for Euro sign brings up only two characters, the Euro currency sign (which is not the Euro sign) and the Euro sign, which is named exactly that.  I haven't figured out whether there is a way to get the status line at the bottom to read the actual ALT plus digits key sequence one can use, but it does display.  Someone else may know that.  You can, however, select the character and copy it for pasting out of character map.  I often find myself doing just this for the degree symbol, as I never seem to recall the ALT plus digits shortcut for it and that character is not on my keyboard.

Re: euro symbol

André
 

Yeah, sorry. It was my mistake. But in fact Ctrl + Right Alt + E only
works from within Microsoft Word. At least on my PC it does not from
within Excel (I have version 2010), as well as Notepad, Thunderbird, and
probably most of the text editors. CtrlRight+Alt+E seems to be a
Word/specific hotkey, while Right Alt + numpad  is a Windows
functionality and therefore complies with in  application with text
input. (By the way, I use also newest Win 10.)

The keystroke right-hand-side Alt plus letter E does not work with standard qwerty keyboard layout, but it works for instance with the German qwertz keyboard layout.
To my knoledge, the procedure with 'hold Alt and press 0128 on the numpad' is the only universal procedure on Windows.
If you don't have a physical numpad, then usually pressing the Fn key allows you to turn your laptop keyboard layout into a numpad, where letter j corresponds to numpad 1, letter k to numpad 2, letter l to numpad 3, letter u to numpad 4, letter i to numpad 5, letter o to numpad 6, number 7 to numpad 7, number 8 to numpad 8, number 9 to numpad 9, and letter m to numpad 0.
Another alternative should be to use the international US keyboard layout. But there I don"t know any details myself.

Hi,

On the Spanish community, a member reported that the add-on did not
correctly report the remaining days for leap years.

When pressing NVDA+F12 thrice on January 3rd, 2020, the addon said "362
days remaining" while, as 2020 is a leap year, it should say "363".

Ivan proposed a PR which I have just merged.

Since I don't have access to the addonfiles repo on github/nvdaadons, I
could not update the development channel for this add-on.

So don't use addonUpdater to do this update, nor the download link
provided on the add-on page on our community website.

Thanks Ivan and Spanish community.

The corrected add-on can be downloaded here:

http://cyber25.free.fr/nvda-addons/clock-20.01-dev.nvda-addon

It will remain in development version for a short time, just long enough
to check if other bugs have been detected.

Kind regards,
Abdel.
