Re: Addon development: how to switch focus to another NVDA object?

 

Sam,

            This question is far more likely to get the audience you're looking for on the NVDA Development group.


Although there are a few folks who are developers who post here, the bulk of us are end users who don't have any real working knowledge regarding the actual source code for NVDA itself nor any add-ons.   By contrast, the NVDA Development group is dedicated to that.

Addon development: how to switch focus to another NVDA object?

Samuel Kacer
 

Hello all,

 

I am currently developing an addon and I am trying to figure out how to have NVDA jump to another NVDA object.

 

Essentially I am wanting for when the user presses NVDA + E, the current focused object’s siblings are searched and the first one that is editable text is focused. Here is my code:

    @script(gesture = 'kb:NVDA+e')

    def script_findEditor(self, gesture):

        # get the first sibling of focused object

        obj = api.getFocusObject().simpleParent.simpleFirstChild

        while obj is not None:

            if obj.role is controlTypes.ROLE_EDITABLETEXT:

                obj.setFocus()

                return

            obj = obj.simpleNext

        ui.message('couldnt find editor.')

 

 

I am developing this for use in IntelliJ which uses Java Access Bridge GUI. It does not work as expected, if the object doesn’t have a editor sibling it correctly outputs the message, but if it does, it doesn’t output the message and nothing happens.

 

Some help in understanding why it might not be working is greatly appreciated.

 

Kind Regards,

Sam

 

 


Re: strange radial box

 

Until or unless the original poster makes a statement, no one knows for sure what he's talking about, nor the exact behavior he's referring to.  Pretending otherwise can be your thing, but it's not mine.

Issues like this require clarity, as well as example pages where said behavior occurs so that others can test out what happens for them.  So far, we've got neither.

I know what both of the above are, and if we're talking about radio buttons
it would be helpful to have a URL for a page where the "odd behavior" is
occurring.

Hello all

On another list, a discussion about data recovery has come up, and lead me to wonder if there are any data recovery tools that are known to work with NVDA?

I don't want to be too specific about the kinds of data recovery, to keep the question open enough to attract a variety of answers.

That said, here are two examples:

1. A folder accidentally shift-deleted from a hard drive.
2. Software that records audio to a USB stick in .wav format, but doesn't write the file length header until after the recording is done. If that software (or its host, like a Behringer X32 or Midas M32) is shut down while still recording, the data is still on the stick, but shows a zero file size because the length bytes were never added to the filesystem.

Either of those can, in theory, be resolved by appropriate data recovery and forensics software. But which such software might be accessible with NVDA?

Hello again,

You can also visit webpage:

www.iobit.com

and there you can download iobit tools.

One of a tool is tool undelete data.

You must use just the tool, that is working in Nvda.

All tools are working in Nvda.

Hi all,

You can select between free and unfree version of Recuva.

Recuva is also free.

There is Recuva.  It is not freeware though, but it is inexpensive and can be used with NVDA quite effectively.  In fact, it is the same company that brings us CCleaner.  Here's the link

Scope of the Calibre addon

Jens Gierke
 

Hi,

I'm irritated about the Calibre addon for NVDA. Does it allow reading
ebooks with Calibre or is it only to make use of the converter
capabilities? Even with the addon installed I'm not able to read any
book content in Calibre's ebook viewer. There is no browse mode and also
the review cursor/object navigation doesn't help.

Best regards,
Jens


BrailleExtender: use a custom table

Vincent Le Goff <vincent.legoff.srs@...>
 

Hi everyone,


I posted on this list a little while ago to know how to change Braille symbols for specific characters, not that the so-called "official" symbols are not correct, but I feel they aren't pertinent in computer 8 Braille and I would like to alter (without altering for other users).  BrailleExtendr seems to allow to override the used Braille table, though it's still a new feature that is apparently not quite stable.  Sorry if I should post this question on another list, I'm not sure where.  Cn I get some info on how to do it?  My tests just don't work out of the box, I don't seem to be able to get away from the "official" tables.


Thanks,


Vincent

Re: strange radial box

Luke Davis
 

I think you are talking about radio not radial, and buttons not boxes. That assumed:
Are you saying that tab doesn't work for you? With many radio buttons, I often can hit either escape or tab to get out of them, once the option I prefer is selected.
If that is what you are experiencing, it is common.

Out of curiosity isn’t the focus placed on the AM and PM so that no matter how large a number before the focus is the start time will be determined by AM or PM?

 

Also, I plan on creating some more clock chimes.

Hi everybody,

 

I am Abdel, a collaborator for the add-on Clock and calendar.

 

Someone reported the following bug when using quiet hours:

 

If the start time is greater than the end time, the duration of the

quiet hours does not arrive until the end time.

 

In principle, it must be the next day that must be automatically chosen

through an internal code.

 

This code is in the timeInRange function, defined in the dtfunctions module.

 

This function has been corrected as follows, to fix the bug:

 

> def timeInRange(startTime, endTime, checkTime, use24hour=False):

>     """

>     A function that can be used to check whether the time range

> received as a parameter does not match a specific time.

>     @param startTime: The start time in the range.

>     @type startTime: basestring.

>     @param endTime: The end time in the range.

>     @type endTime: basestring.

>     @param checkTime: The time that will allow for the verification.

>     @type checkTime: basestring.

>     @param use24hour: optional: A boolean to determine whether the

> specified times format are 24-hour format or not.

>     @type use24hours: boolean.

>     @returns: A Boolean corresponding to the verification.

>     @rtype: boolean.

>     """

>     start=parseTime(startTime, use24hour)

>     end=parseTime(endTime, use24hour)

>     check=parseTime(checkTime, use24hour)

>     if end<start:

>         end+=timedelta(days=1)

>         if check < start:

>             check+=timedelta(days=1)

>     return start<=check<end

 

 

The 19.09-dev version of the add-on is downloadable here, it is also

available by clicking on the "development version" link on the community

site, as well as with addonUpdater, in the dev channel:

 

> http://cyber25.free.fr/nvda-addons/clock-19.09-dev.nvda-addon

 

 

It will remain in development version during a period of 2 weeks.

 

Thanks in advance for confirming me if the bug persists or not.

 

Kind regards,

Abdel.
