Re: holding off on 2022.1 due to Code Factory dragging their feet

 

Hi,

As for Clock add-on, the original author of this add-on is not maintaining it, and I have no plans for releasing future releases of this add-on (stating this as the last known maintainer). Please consider this add-on abandoned and end of support.

Cheers,

Joseph

Cursor Locator

  • Authors: Noelia Ruiz Martínez, Sergio Gómez Codina.

This add-on makes possible to know the position of the system caret respect to the start of the current line, while typing to add text in documents or multiline controls.

This feature deppends on the visual appearance of applications. Therefore, you may need to disable line adjustment or configure the add-on for different programs.

This panel is available from NVDA's menu, Preferences submenu, Settings dialog.

It provides the following options:

  • Report line length: You can type or choose a line length (number of characters between 0 and 600), which will be announced by a hight tone when it's reached. (The default value is 80 characters).
  • Maximum number of beeps for start of line notification: You can type or select a value between 0 and 600. The default value is 0.
  • Maximum number of beeps for end of line notification: You can type or select a value between 0 and 600. The default value is 0.
  • Pitch of sound for start of line: You can type or select a value between 20 and 20000. (The default value is 400 hertzs).
  • Length of sound for start of line: You can type or select a value between 20 and 2000. (The default value is 50 milliseconds).
  • Test sound for start of line: Press this button to test the configured sound for start of line.
  • Pitch of sound for end of line: You can type or select a value between 20 and 20000. (The default value is 1000 hertzs).
  • Length of sound for end of line: You can type or select a value between 20 and 2000. (The default value is 50 milliseconds).
  • Test sound for end of line: Press this button to test the configured sound for end of line.

Commands

You can modify the gestures to the following commands trought the NVDA's menu, Preferences submenu, Input gestures dialog:

  • NVDA+control+shift+l: When possible, reports the lenght of the current line (System caret category).
  • Not assigned: Shows the Cursor Locator settings dialog (Config category).

Changes for 2.0

  • Added ability to repeat notifications when reaching end and start of line.
  • Added support for Office documents, and Notepad on Windows 11.

Changes for 1.0

  • Initial version

Lions intelligent OCR
Enhanced Winamp
Clock
Day of the week

Re: Whether or not recommending new NVDA user to set Capslock as NVDA key

 

Well its prefference.
I mean I like the capslock as modifier key because of its central location.
And I set all my boxes like that but insert on my laptop is not in the
right place and I have got used to it.
Caps lock is always in the same place.
Of course if you need to use caps a lot then maybe not no rule its
user experience.

Subject: [nvda] Whether or not recommending new NVDA user to set Capslock as
NVDA key

Hi all,

I would like to ask for your opinion.

Some new NVDA users, including desktop and laptop owners, will ask for my
opinion on whether they should set the Capslock as the NVDA key.

With regard to desktop and laptop environment, the logic that I have
provided them are as follows:

1. setting Capslock key as NVDA key, you have to press the key two times in
order to input capital letters. But if you have to frequently press the
Capslock key to type capital letters, then setting Capslock key as NVDA key
will not be a good option.

2. setting Capslock key as NVDA key, you have one more option of NVDA key,
which you can choose from using the Capslock key or Insert key as the NVDA
key. But if you do not set Capslock as NVDA key, you will most probably have
to limit to pressing Insert key (laptop) or Insert key or Numpad 0
(desktop).


How would you advice new NVDA users if they own a desktop or laptop
regarding this issue? thanks.





















Re: Version 22.06 of Joseph Lee's add-ons posted: Add-on Updater, Windows App Essentials, Event Tracker (deep maintenance), Object Location Tones (deep maintenance), ObjPad (deep maintenance) #addonrelease

 

Have a nice break.
I actually will for myself assuming I don't reaquire covid or
something else doesn't go wrong be out of the office for 4 days or so
on vacation.
I have not decided but I am seriously conciddering not taking my
workstation with me which means I won't be getting mail or anything at
all.
Just my recorder and shortwave reciever and thats about it.
Its hard to take a techbreak, luckily my phone aint smart so I don't
have to bother about that but yeah, seriously conciddering going
offline completely myself.

Hi all,

With the release of NVDA 2022.1 stable version, I'm delighted to announce
the immediate release of five add-on updates:

* Add-on Updater 22.06: internal changes.
* Event Tracker 22.06: compatibility update.
* Object Location Tones 22.06: compatibility update.
* ObjPad 22.06: compatibility update.
* Windows App Essentials 22.06: many goodies and bug fixes. Note that
the version offered will be 22.06.1 due to a last minute change requiring a
version bump.



Of these add-ons, Event Tracker, Object Location Tones, and ObjPad are in
deep maintenance mode. I have no plans for future releases of these
add-ons,
and I cannot guarantee that these add-ons will be compatible with the next
release of NVDA unless someone steps up to maintain them; consider them
abandoned and end of support.

Now that add-ons were updated (Add-on Updater should be offering them to
you
as of this moment), I can finally take a vacation I needed for some time.
Therefore, I will not release add-on updates of any kind throughout June
2022. Don't worry if I don't respond to you on a timely manner about my
add-ons - consider me offline.

See you all in July.

Cheers,

Joseph







Re: holding off on 2022.1 due to Code Factory dragging their feet

 

Well there are a few changes but nothing massive unless you use win11
and office.
I have installed it but had to manually get zoom enhancements as not
released to community.
Outlook extended has a dev version as outlined by feeds but not a stable yet.
Vlc is a no go but well thats that.
Most things work.
As for code factory so happy I rely on sapi only.
Of course I can't wait for those trolls on audiogames.net talking
about how nvaccess should keep nvda working and that its not fair for
nvaccess to keep breaking nvda for no reason.

For Windows 11 specifically, you can find the full what's new here:



But just from the blurb, there are a few things for Windows 11. Firstly
using UIA in newer versions Word by default, which should make it much more
responsive. There are also various Windows 11 bug fixes, for apps such as

I just got a similar email from Amazon, and having seen this thread,
looked over it to see what it looked like. There are spaces between
the equals signs, which is why NVDA reads it the way it does. I
personally find those quite annoying.

Shaun Oliver
 

same here. there's a truck load of add-ons I have here that I use with regularity which precludes me from updating at this time, however, in saying that, it's not always best to go get it immediately anyway due to the fact that if you have incompatible add-ons, especially those you use all the time, you're going to find those self same add-ons becoming showstoppers.

right now I have far too many to justify the update.
