One request about new plugin

Casalino
Hi,

One of my friends, a blind old man, has several difficoulties in typing
on a computer keyboard.

He was using so far a particular software designed for blind that allows
typing easily pressing the keys twice to have them confirmed.

In this way He was able to find handy the desired key without risks of
errors in typing.

Now He has asked me to implement a plug-in for nvda to abtain the same
feature.

Could someone of you indicate in wich direction I sould investigate to
achive this kind of result?

Thanks in advance

How familiar are you with python?

Also, has he checked out filter keys, to prevent him from accidentally typing things twice?

Also, does he use braille or speech mostly?

I could write this for you pretty easily, in fact it would be a useful addition to the NVDA Add-ons website.

Basically, there's an event_typedChar, you will implement that.

Hi All,

 

I wonder if some one can tell me how does nvda get the number of tables in a word document.  When you read through a document, it numbers the tables such as table 1, table2, etc.  How is this done?

 

Thanks.

Hi,

I in the past have contributed in nvda writing some drivers for synthesizer or Braille display (for example hims displays).

If you can help me I am very happy.

Unfortunatelly I have no so much time to learn about the plugin system and this man needs help.

I think you can prevent accident twice typing by a pre-defined time.

If you do not press the same key in that time, the key has to be considered lost and not typed.

If you press the same key in that time, the key will be considered as intended.

Thanks


Gianluca
