[Nvda-dev] Newby

Hi Listers,

 

I am new to this list and have previous experience in Visual Basic, C# and a number of other languages.

 

I am currently working on automating the office products for work and believe that it could benefit NVDA in respect of the support that is rended by Microsoft Office.

 

Therefore, I have decided to use Python for this project.  Note, I have no previous experience with Python and may ask silly questions to those experienced Python Gurus.

 

First of all, I have installed Python 2.5 and Active States Win Python.

 

I download the pyTTS and pyAA modules and because of its version, it will not install.  Is there a version for Python 2.5 and where can it be obtained?

 

What is the other dependencies for NVDA to run?  I tried looking on the Website and the Wikkie gave me a 404 error and was not found.

 

Thanks for any assistance.

Hi.
If you are using NVDA source, after you obtain the archive from svn there is a test file inside the archive in the top level of it called dependencies.txt or something like that. It will tell you all of this. Just for sake of being able to, I'll copy and paste it into this email below. Besides, this should make those links clickable.
 
The NVDA source depends on several other packages to run correctly. Below is a list of the relevant packages along with the URLs where the packages can be obtained.
Python 2.5:
http://www.python.org/
comtypes (for python 2.5 specifically):
http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/comtypes/
Note that NVDA may have problems using versions of comtypes earlier than 0.3.3.
wxPython unicode (for python 2.5):
http://www.wxpython.org/
Python Windows Extensions (for python 2.5):
http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/pywin32/
Several other packages, made available for convenience in the NVDA miscellaneous dependencies package:
http://trac.nvda-project.org/wiki/MiscellaneousDependencies

You do not need pyTTS and pyAA. Are these still mentioned on the web
site somewhere? If so, let me know what page so I can fix it. :)

The wiki has been taken down, but I am moving the development articles
to trac. Please see:

Welcome aboard! :)
