One new add-on, one updated add-on: Input Lock 1.4 (new), Add-on Updater (proof of concept updated) #addonrelease


 

Hi all,

 

Please join me in welcoming one new add-on and one updated add-on to the stage:

 

  • Input Lock (new by Jose Manuel Delicado): lock keyboards, mouse and touchscreens from accidental input. Add-ons website entry: https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/inputLock.en.html
  • Add-on Updater (proof of concept updated): August 16th snapshot attempts at detecting end of file error as reported by some users, also adds Input Lock to list of add-ons eligible for update checks. Also, for those using latest NVDA alpha snapshots, this add-on will try to use checkable list box control that ships with NVDA.

 

Cheers,

Joseph

Input lock sounds like quite a dangerous idea! I assume that its easy to get out of is it?

Hi, the new add on updater seems to have fixed the EOF issue. i did previously try deleting the update file for add ons but that made no difference, yet it was odd that before no portable version had the issue, only installed ones, but as I say its working now.

Poor old windows got in a bit of a mess with me switching versions of nvda to update them all though. I had to fiddle abit to get sense out of it, but then I do not think stopping and starting different nvda versions in quick succession was actually a use case considered!

Hi!

I am pleased to report that, after I installed the latest snapshot of the Add-On Updater, the settings for this add-on appear in my NVDA preferences again, and I can also check for add-on updates manually from the Tools menu as I did before that option temporarily disappeared.

Many thanks for your work on this excellent add-on, Joseph! And thanks to all add-on developers for their work to make NVDA do even more than it can on its own.

Bye for now!

From Clare
