nvda accessibility with calibre:


Dan Miner
 

I just downloaded the latest 5.9.0 and the add-on. It does have some tricky spots in my quick check. However, the main UI and the quick guide viewed in the built-in book viewer does work. The book viewer is going to dump a paragraph at a time when using line navigation. Also, you will have to use object navigation to reach the pages to read them (NVDA+keypad 2 for desktop layout). But in the past, these were my barriers from using it. I may try using it again just for this reason.

Hi, last time I tried, it was a pain, but since then an add-on has
been
developped: https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/calibre.en.html
i haven't tried it, as i only use calibre's ebook conversion tool in
command line, so i can't tell how much it improves things, but since
it's here I assume it makes it at least bearable.
