If it does exist, then it should be mentioned at least in your announcement email!

Hi,

That command does exist and is unassigned by default (Joseph decides to drink a bottle of black coffee to stay up all night and work on documentation…). I’ll mention this fact in the readme later in August.

Cheers,

Joseph

Dear Joseph, there should be a command for putting screen curtain on and off and it should be off by default!

Hi everyone,

 

I’m delighted to announce the immediate release of updates to Add-on Updater and Screen Curtain. Note that these add-ons are proof of concept (prototype) add-ons and should be used to provide feedback to people developing these feature in NVDA Core:

 

  • Add-on Updater (NVDA Core issue 3208): Joseph Lee
  • Screen Curtain (NVDA Core issue 7857): Leonard de Ruijter/Babbage B.V.

 

In case of Add-on Updater, today’s build includes work from checkable list (NVDA issue 7491), thus serving as a field test of that issue. If you have any comments on checkable list, please send them to Leonard.

 

To check for add-on updates:

 

  1. If you have Add-on Updater installed, go to NVDA menu/Tools/Check for add-on updates.
  2. If you don’t have Add-on Updater, go to community add-ons website and install Add-on Updater.
  3. Due to addition of Screen Curtain in “add-ons under development” category, you’ll need to check for add-on updates a second time to update Screen Curtain.

 

Changelog:

 

Add-on Updater:

  • When new add-on updates appear, the first entry will be selected and announced automatically.
  • Added ability to exclude add-ons from being updated. You can configure this by going to NVDA menu/Preferences/Settings/Add-on Updater panel. From “do not update add-ons” checkable list box, check add-ons you do not want Add-on Updater to update. This was requested by an add-on author.

 

Screen Curtain:

  • Added a check to make sure magnification wrapper can be imported.
  • Added an unassigned gesture to toggle screen curtain.
  • Added a toggle menu item in Tools that shows state of Screen Curtain.

 

Enjoy.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi


Where Joseph refers to is check under the input gestures section of nvda.


When you get there press the enter key then go to tools then screen curtain and asign a key.


I missed that one 2 in the latest update of the add on  of where to assign a key.

.

I was looking either under tools menu under the preferences section there is a menu there for screen curtain and when checked is on and unchecked is off. I went with the short cut when it was done.

You will need the latest version of screen curtain.


I did not realize it either there is also a gesture where you can open the add on manager quickly with a gesture in that section.

Hi Joseph
I just updated the add on to update add ons  and it got the latest.
I read to get the curtain one which i already have i had to go back a second time for it to see it and up date it so i did.
Only thing is it is still looking and i could not really cancel it it went on for quite a few minutes yet all the other add ons which i have were already updated.
I had to restart nvda so it would stop it from looking. Would that also be because the other add on is not up there? or a bug?
