english documentation in my drop box account.

*Object enhancer add on for NVDA

Object Enhancer allows you to change how NVDA announces
objects on the screen using an intuitive interface. It can
be used to change the label of an object, but depending on
how you’re using it, has functionality to change basically
any property of an object.
Changes to an object are saved in a definition. A

• Attribute changes that will be applied to every object
that matches the definition
• Optional relationships with other definitions. A
definition can inherrit criteria from other
You can obtain a copy of it for NVDA 2021.1 from my drop
box account at https://www.dropbox.com/s/wld98w3bv5s2l9i/object%20enhancer.zip?dl=1
The add on is in Dutch and if you do the following on the
installed version of NVDA you can have it in English.
Press the Windows key, then arrow to all apps, then NVDA,
then NVDA user configuration, then press the Enter key.
Locate the addons folder, then locate the object enhancer
folder, then press the Enter key.
Locate the Doc folder, there will be 2 folders inside of
it. Locate the Nl folder then copy the readme.html file.
Go back one step and locate the En folder and paste it in
there. It should override the other readme file. Now when
you bring up the help section in the addon, the first part
will be in Dutch and the rest will be English.
For a portable version do the following. If it is in the
NVDA folder, locate the user configuration folder, then
press the Enter key. Locate the add ons folder then press
the Enter key. Locate the object enhancer folder, then
press the Enter key. Locate the Doc folder, then press the
Enter key. There will be 2 folders inside of it. Locate
the Nl folder, then press the Enter key and copy the
readme.html file. Go back one step and locate the En
folder and press the Enter key and paste it in there. It
should override the other readme file. Now when you bring
up the help section in the add on, the first part will be
in Dutch and the rest will be English.
If after that has been done and you hear NVDA speaking in
another language, use the NVDA key + Ctrl key + the letter
V. Next, tab down until you hear NVDA say Automatic
language switching (when supported) and uncheck that box.
Save your settings, then open the add on help section. The
first part will be in Dutch and the rest will be in
If you do not want to do the above, there is an English
text file which you can read within the zip file.
quite honest, we forgot that we had this add-on made. My
own boss asked me the other day to look into a
functionality to label objects in NVDA as they can do in
JAWS, turns out we already had something on the table :).
I'll give it some love where needed, since it would be
tremendously useful for our own work as well. If anyone
has a pull-request that it wants to push then I will look
