For some reason that link didn't "linkify" in your original message, so I'm repeating it here.  The actual download page for the add on is listed here:  http://www.screenreader.ai/ 

This topic is again giving me the chance to call on the powers that be that control the NVDA Add-Ons pages to create a third one under the hierarchy:  Community Developed but Unvetted.   There are scads of NVDA Add-Ons that get mentioned in passing over time and I have little doubt that a number of the individuals who've developed same would jump at the chance to have their work listed in a central repository just like the Stable Add-Ons and Add-Ons Under Development pages at https://addons.nvda-project.org/index.en.html.   It can be made perfectly clear by the chosen page title or text at the top of said page that use of these add-ons is entirely "at your own risk" and they have not passed any official vetting process.   So many of them are just great, and work just fine.   A mechanism on that page should also exist for reporting back if something has broken, not because those maintaining the page will fix the add-on itself, but it might be noted and/or delisted entirely if that persists.

Hi


Just tried it. It does not show up under the add on manager as a add on so apart from the shortcut given on one of the pages there is no real way to see if there are any steps missed to make it work. it also does not show up any where else. has any one else got it to work? If it does work it will need to be updated so it works with the latest version of nvda.


I just got to remember how to remove the ones with out it be shown in the add on manager. maybe more info can be found under the explore user configuration directory i think it is called.

hi


it also does not show under the nvda user configuration directory as a add on either. so I am guessing it just did not install unless it was compatible with this version.


Did any one get it to work in earlier versions of nvda? and if so how did you do it?

Was it just a matter of installing the add on and using the shortcut or did you have to sign up so you could use it?


I did a while ago see reference to this add on which did have more information but do not know where it has gone.

Hi Everyone,


I installed the image app and found it worked extremely well.  The download and installation was seemless.  Although I'll need to use it more, to establish its capabilities, my immediate impression is that the add on is a very useful tool for us. 



Cheers


Ivan

This is so cool! I'm the creator of this add-on, love that it's being useful for people! 

If someone has any idea for improvements or other add-ons, please tell. I'm reachable at oliver.edholm@...

 

I installed it, but have not played with it.  It absolutely does show up in Add-On Manager if it is actually installed.

I will repeat the link to the reddit page that describes the add-on.  There is a link there to its download page:  https://www.reddit.com/r/Blind/comments/b11tcr/image_describer_nvda_addon/

Hi


Until it goes up on the nvda community website I can add it to my website or at least a link to the page and the short cut to start it so more people can take it as they say for a test drive.

I will link it off the nvda add ons page on my website at http://www.accessibilitycentral.net

For more people to try it out  the add on author should have it put on the add on website and see what you have to do to meet its criteria.

Just been playing around with it to see what it says on images etc seems to work well. I might even try it on home photoes etc to see what it says and what is in it. My wife is usually good and gives a description of who or what it is as in naming the photo etc.

I noticed also if it is named it gives you other descriptions of what is in the image.


I will do this in the next day or so.

As in adding it to my website until it is approved.

Hi Gene!

Thank you so much!

I can’t wait until I can try this add-on!

I would love to hear my pictures described.

I have wanted this for a long time!

NVDA gives me a present so often, because of all of these great add-ons LOL!

Thanks!

Hi David


the link to the reddit page is  https://www.reddit.com/r/Blind/comments/b11tcr/image_describer_nvda_addon/

?From off that page it will give you a link to the add on and also says the shortcut to start it.


So it can be used now there was a message from the guy that made it in a previous email. all i will be doing is adding it to the nvda add on page and also putting it under recently updated on the main page so more people can try it out so they know about it.


He would probably get more coverage if it goes on the official nvda community add on website but not sure how long that takes and who runs it.

Hey all!

I just installed the add-on, and it is describing my pictures that I took right now!

This add-on is working so well.

Wow, thank you so much for this add-on!

This will be huge!

Hi Ivan,


Did you try it with capchas and if so how did it work?

Hi Everyone,


I installed the image app and found it worked extremely well.  The download and installation was seemless.  Although I'll need to use it more, to establish its capabilities, my immediate impression is that the add on is a very useful tool for us.

hi


it also does not show under the nvda user configuration directory as a add on either. so I am guessing it just did not install unless it was compatible with this version.


Did any one get it to work in earlier versions of nvda? and if so how did you do it?

Was it just a matter of installing the add on and using the shortcut or did you have to sign up so you could use it?


I did a while ago see reference to this add on which did have more information but do not know where it has gone.

If it does work it will need to be updated so it works with the latest version of nvda.


I just got to remember how to remove the ones with out it be shown in the add on manager. maybe more info can be found under the explore user configuration directory i think it is called.

This is pretty cool. What I am wondering about is if you feed this
thing pictures will it learn what items are and get better? Like a
chair book car even car type would be nice. I would love this for many
many pictures if it did that. Also it would be cool if machine
learning could tell us what things are in non described videos. That
will be the day.

What we need is some sort of cloud repository I'd imagine that would be quite big.

What would you use and how much would it cost, I don't have the cash for a major subscription as such, but I guess I could manage something like 1-2 bucks a month or something.

It seems to be using Google's AI. If an image is too large, it feeds NVDA the HTML of that page saying the image is too large, or something like that.

Hi

 

Until it goes up on the nvda community website I can add it to my website or at least a link to the page and the short cut to start it so more people can take it as they say for a test drive.

I will link it off the nvda add ons page on my website at http://www.accessibilitycentral.net

For more people to try it out  the add on author should have it put on the add on website and see what you have to do to meet its criteria.

Just been playing around with it to see what it says on images etc seems to work well. I might even try it on home photoes etc to see what it says and what is in it. My wife is usually good and gives a description of who or what it is as in naming the photo etc.

I noticed also if it is named it gives you other descriptions of what is in the image.

 

I will do this in the next day or so.

As in adding it to my website until it is approved.

I will repeat the link to the reddit page that describes the add-on.  There is a link there to its download page:  https://www.reddit.com/r/Blind/comments/b11tcr/image_describer_nvda_addon/

Hi Gene!

Thank you so much!

I can’t wait until I can try this add-on!

I would love to hear my pictures described.

I have wanted this for a long time!

NVDA gives me a present so often, because of all of these great add-ons LOL!

Thanks!

Hi! Funny you said, I'm actually working on an NVDA add-on to solve captchas by connecting to an anti captcha service right now... The current Image Describer add-on will probably not solve the captchas though.

It'll be for free if you solve under a certain amount of captchas per day, would love to have some test users before I release anything though, please contact at oliver.edholm[at]gmail.com if you're interested.

Hi!

Right now I'm not storing any of the images for privacy reasons. The descriptions are going to get better though, eventually the add-on will also do face detection, emotion recognition, icon classification and some sort of OCR.

Regarding videos I'd love to know more about the use case, it's doable from a technical standpoint. I'm reachable at oliver.edholm[at]gmail.com.
