That's what I thought too.

On a separate note, I was thinking that we can use langdetect library to detect the language of every paragraph on the fly and switch to that language. This would allow to automatically switch between two Latin-based languages, or between Chinese and Japanese. Maybe some day if I have enough time I'll work on that...

So, like among the latin languages, it is not possible, without lots of processement, to switch from chinese to japanese and vice-versa...

Language map can be edited in preferences. Do Chinese and Japanese use the same Unicode character set or different ones? If they use the same set, autmatic switching won't be possible.

Hi,

I have some issues with BrowserNav.

The version 1.11 doesn't work for me. If I press "p" or "shift+p" I only get a beep and nothin happens. Other commands like "nvda+alt+arrows" don't work either. No crackling when I press quick navigation commands like "h" for headings.

This happens both with Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.

If I check for updates I can download and install v. 1.9 which seems to work except for the new commands like "P" and "shift+p".

What am I doing wrong?

I use NVDA 2020.1 on an old laptop with Windows 8.1.

Other add-ons that I have installed are:

Add-on Updater v. 20.06.1

Mozilla Apps Enhancements v. 1.11

OCR v. 2.0

SentenceNav v. 2.7

TextNav v. 1.4

I hope you can help me because this add-on is really very interesting.

Thanks in advance.

Bye.

Gigi

Now a days, I assume that is doable...

Back in 2013 when we make the automatic language switching module it was very time consuming, since the machines 7 years ago do not were so powerfull...


And, do not forget that the language detection works allright in long paragraphs or text, but do not work reliably with one or two words...

By instance, suppose an english system and a text in portuguese. Since portuguese have several characters not existing in english, like á, é, ç and so on, is relatively easy to detect, and switching to portuguese, but if you press Alt to go to the menus, it is impossible to detect the language should be switched to english...

Except if you create a rule to always read the menus in the default language, and even that do not solve the problem, because I have the system in portuguese but some apps have the menu in english...

All were discussed in the message that started this topic, which is in the NVDA Group Archive.

This question can be answered, specific to NVDA users, by Searching the NVDA Group Archive..


Please read the above and search the archive using the terms enclosed in square brackets below:

[“new features” add-ons Tony]

This returns all of 2 messages to review when the Option 1 in the above referenced document is employed.


For answers not specific to NVDA users, but applicable to all, use the web search technique (Option 2) from the above noted document, but omitting the operator,
site:nvda.groups.io/g/nvda, from the search using just the search terms listed above.  If required, fine tune your terms by adding more if you’re getting too many results that aren’t relevant, or taking them away one by one if you’re getting no results or very few results that do not answer your question.  This is how one learns, over time, to refine searches to get the information you’re seeking while eliminating extraneous material.  The use of exact phrases, e.g., “Notre Dame” and “flying buttress,” can be very effective in getting more focused information than using those 4 words outside of a phrase or even the phrase, “Notre Dame,” combined with the two words flying and buttress.

If you don’t find what you’re looking for after doing the above, then try Searching the Windows 10 for Screen Reader Users Group Archive or Searching the JAWS Group Archive if accessibility on the PC is the  information you seek.  For Android accessibility questions, try Searching the Android Accessibility Group Archive

pycld2 is better it has built in function to split string into languages, but you have to  pip install from github not pypi. The version on pypi has issues on install.

Hello Tony!
Very good your add-ons, it's a great job.
I have a couple of suggestions and some issues.
The first thing is if you could move the settings of your add-ons to
NVDA's built-in preferences, this would allow you to configure
profiles. It happened to me that the enhanced word navigation feature
doesn't work well in UIA controls, for example in the Address Bar of
Microsoft Edge, in Onenote, Quick Notes, etc. What happens is that
when you press ctrl and arrows, select that text and NVDA says
selected. However, I like the way it works with VS Code, so I have to
be activating and deactivating that function. With indent nav in apps
like the ones I mentioned, quick notes or onenote, so does the same,
NVDA says selected. Both add-ons work, but it's tedious that NVDA
verbalize that in these cases.

Thank you very much!

Best regards
