When you open Add-Ons Manager there is a Get Add-Ons button at the bottom.  You can also download NVDA add-ons from the NVDA Community Add-Ons Page <https://addons.nvda-project.org/index.en.html> or from private developers, then double click on the file when NVDA is running, and you'll be asked if you want to install the add-on.

As Joseph has already noted there are no NVDA add-ons for Libre Office (or at least there aren't on the community add-ons page, who knows if anyone noodling around with NVDA and Libre Office might have created an add-on, but chances are slim).

Re: Why has this not been fixed

 

I can confirm that it is down to the synth. Both Vocalizer and Espeak pronounced 'cup' correctly, whereas Windows OneCore and Microsoft Speach API version 5 pronounced 'cup' as 'Cuban Peso'.

Re: Why has this not been fixed

Do you have multiple languages on your computer? Also have you looked into the dictionary may be corrupt? Because its miss pronouseing what is typed.
A synthesizer only reflex punctuation and some conjunctions. The rest is handled by the screen reader and dictionary.

Why does NVDA still say Cuban Peso for cup when cup is mentioned in a
sentence? Like in the following,

Mr. Coffee 12-cup programmable coffee maker in black/chrome.

Also Mariana islands is echoed for MP3 sometimes. Perplexing for me!

Hi all,

 

Windows 10 App Essentials 20.07 is now available, mostly bringing support for Version 2004 Cortana for non-English speakers.

 

IMPORTANT: version 20.07 requires Windows 10 Version 1909 (November 2019 Update/build 18363). If you need to use this add-on on Version 1903 or earlier, version 20.06.2 can be found at:

Re: Why has this not been fixed

Bryce, that is more a function of the synthesizer you're using as
opposed to NVDA itself. Mine says 12 cup. On the other hand, mine
trips on other things that are equally annoying.

Question about synthesizers, was, Re: [nvda] Question about mail app

Evidently, a response was made to the wrong thread. I've changed the subject line, though I may not have punctuated the change correctly.

Regarding the question, there is an add-on that may do what you want. See this page:

Hi Hettie,


You can go to http://www.ninite.com and download either open office, or libre office.  Both have word processors, are free of charge and work with NVDA.

If you are just looking for a free stand alone word processor, you can get one from http://www.jarte.com

Hope this helps.
