Yes, I know about typing the partial name of what I am looking for.

I don't know why, if you are in the details view, you hear those things.  Do you know what you are looking for and its name in the list?  If you type the first letter or the first two or three letters if there are many items with the same first and second letters, you will move immediately to the item if there is only one.  In other words, if you type mai for example and there is just one item called mail, you will move to it.  I don't know if there is something called mail in the list but that is an example.  The more letters you type if there is something that has many of the same first letters as others, the more likely you are to be on the item.  So even with a lot of verbosity, it will be much faster than up and down arrowing  or just typing the first letter repeatedly. 

I didn't change the details because what you are hearing has nothing to do with the details shown.  You are hearing announcements about the interface, that the item is in a grouping, for example.

I don't have Windows 11 and I don't know if this has changed.  In Windows 10, you won't see all the same things but you can get to a list of processes that is similar to the list in Windows 7 in the Task Manager.  Once you open it, use the command control tab many times to get to a part of the dialog called details.
I believe you have to tab once to get to the list. 

In Windows 10, you shouldn't hear excessive verbosity and you can move through the list in the same way as in Windows 7.

Re: What are NVDA Add-Ons and What Are They Used For?

Chris Smart
 

You know, I don’t think the User Guide actually says what Add-Ons are for, but mentions them a lot, in various contexts.

 

Add-Ons are little programs or configurations supplied by users which add to or change NVDA’s functionality.

Re: What are NVDA Add-Ons and What Are They Used For?

Aravind R
 

NVDA Add ons are additional functions, developed by third parties
which will work with NVDA to give us more facilities and improve our
working capabilities.
For example, OCR in windows10 on photos and PDFS are done more
efficiently using one add on"NAO".
Captcha image reading is done by one add on called cloud vision which
is not present in NVDA.
In future, these add on functions might be included in NVDA itself.
There are hundreds of add ons, which will enhance accessibility in
various areas including language translations.

Re: What are NVDA Add-Ons and What Are They Used For?

 

Kenny,

Just in case you may be a former (or even current) JAWS user Add-Ons are analogous to JAWS Scripts.  You can also consider them, in the NVDA screen reader sphere, to be analgous to web browser add-ons/extensions for a given web browser.

NVDA itself, the core code, has certain functions it performs but it, like all screen readers, is not "all things to all people."  It offers the ability for third parties to create add-ons that provide functionality that the core code does not.  Every once in a great while something that started out life as an add-on gets integrated into NVDA core code.  One good example of that which is currently "in the pipeline" is that the Add-On Updater Add-On functions are supposed to be integrated into NVDA itself at some point in the future.

It is impossible to state briefly what add-ons are for because there are just so many and they do so many different things.  There is no one I know of who has anywhere near to every one of the NVDA add-ons installed and active because they don't need or want a lot of the things certain add-ons do.  It's a "mix and match" situation where you pick and choose according to needs you have.

The two primary download Sources for most NVDA Add-Ons (some home-grown ones will appear in neither location) are:

NVDA Community Add-Ons Site

NVDA Add-Ons Directory (hosted by the Spanish-Speaking NVDA Community Association)
Your best bet as far as learning about what they're used for is going to the Community Add-Ons Site as a starting point and looking at the names of the add-ons, and clicking through to look at the more detailed descriptions as well.

Of course in the UK it all comes out in British English, so there is no way to know. However I have encountered some bizarre sites over the years that switch languages all over the place for no apparent reason, and then those settings come in very handy!

Yes Bob, the room needs to be I think it is called open in the settings on the web at zoom.us otherwise you could not get into the room to claim host as far as I know.
If the room is open then once in the room you can go to the participant list and then go to your name and tab to more option and down arrow to claim host which will pop up a window put the key in and press enter and you should be made host.
