Notepad++ addon


Greg Wocher
 

Hello,

I have downloaded the notepad++ addon. I am having trouble getting it to install. It is downloaded as a .zip so I renamed the extension to .nvda-addon. After doing this it says it is missing a file when I try to install it. What might i do to try and fix this so the addon installs?

Hi Greg,


What added enhancement does this NVDA add-on give to the program?  It seems quite accessible here without any add-on.

Hello,
From looking at the web page for it, it makes the code completion accessible and a few other minor items.

My main problem with Notepad++ and using either JAWS or NVDA is that selected text does not get indicated. I also believe that Nodpad++ might have an auto-complete or error marking to help with syntax and variable names, but I have no idea if any screen reader provides this feedback.

Notepad++ does have auto-completion, and the NVDA add-on makes it accessible. Another thing I really like about it is that you can have it been once a line of text reaches a certain length. That was very useful for me when I took some online programming classes where my lines of code had to be less than 80 characters.
