Enhanced Touch Gestures 20.07 #addonrelease

 

Hello everyone,

 

Enhanced Touch Gestures 20.07 is now available. Notable changes include support for NVDA 2020.1 or later, a keyboard command to toggle touch interaction or touch passthrough (depending on NVDA version), and deprecation of coordinate announcement beep and other changes.

 

IMPORTANT: Enhanced Touch Gestures add-on is applicable if:

  • You have a touchscreen computer running Windows 8.1 or 10.
  • You have NVDA 2020.1 or later installed on this computer (will not work on portable copy).

 

Also, the following features from the add-on are deprecated and will be removed in an upcoming release:

  • Coordinate announcement beep (hear where your finger is when you move around the touchscreen with your finger)
  • Touch passthrough (temporarily turn off NVDA’s touch support for up to ten seconds)

 

In case of the latter, the command used to enable/disable touch passthrough (either a custom command, or starting with add-on 20.07, Control+Alt+NVDA+T) will toggle touch interaction in an upcoming add-on release.

 

As always the new version can be downloaded from community add-ons website or via Add-on Updater.

Cheers,

Joseph
