Welcome to my NVDA Add-on Repository. This page aims to bring together all of the optional components available for the free, open source screen reader known as NVDA. Before you can install any of the below add-ons, you must first install NVDA. You can get NVDA at this link and follow the talking installer. The add-ons listed below are separated into headings and if there are multiple parts to a specific add-on, such as voices that can be downloaded, they will be listed under subheadings.

Instructions for installation

You can install an add-on by following these steps.

  1. Press insert+n to enter the NVDA menu
  2. Press t for tools
  3. Press A for "manage add-ons"
  4. Press tab until you get to the "install" button (or simply press alt+i)
  5. If you tabbed to the "Install" button, Press space or enter to activate it
  6. Browse to the folder where the add-on you want to install is located
  7. Press enter on the add-on to install it
  8. NVDA will ask you if you want to restart at this time. Whether you choose to restart is up to you but it is a good idea to restart especially if you install other voices

Application Specific Add-ons

BitTorrent Sync

Author: Nick Stockton
Version: 1.6
This add-on currently provides the following Accessibility improvements for BTSync:

  1. Provides a hotkey (CTRL+Alt+Tab) to set focus to the tab control of the main dialog or the folder preferences dialog. The user can then use left-right arrow keys to move between tabs and the tab key to jump to the body of the tab as normal.
  2. Prevents list view objects from firing multiple focus events. Without this fix, NVDA would repeat the currently focused list item of some list views incessantly.
  3. Allows the user to use the Applications key or Shift-F10 key combination to open the context menu for the currently selected item in a list view.
  4. Labels some edit boxes within the program that have incorrect or no labels.

Classic Selection

Author: Tyler Spivey
Version: unknown
This addon reverts the behaviour of NVDA+f9 and NVDA+f10 that was introduced in NVDA 2016.3.
The old behaviour copies the selection to the clipboard on the first press of NVDA+f10, while the new one selects on the first press and copies on the second. The new behaviour has some disadvantages. Text can't be copied without being selected (and thus moving the cursor), where that's available. For places it's not (example the console), it adds an extra press of NVDA+f10.
The addon adds two new gestures under the Classic Selection category to start and end selection, which are bound to NVDA+f9 and NVDA+f10 by default.
Download the stable version of Classic Selection add-on here.

ClipSpeak

Author: Damien Sykes-Lindley
Clipspeak is an addon that allows NVDA to automatically announce clipboard operations (such as cut, copy and paste), along with other common editing operations such as select all, undo and redo. In order to prevent announcement in inappropriate situations, Clipspeak performs checks on the control and the clipboard in order to make an informed decision as to whether such an announcement is necessary. Because of this, Clipspeak's announcements may be inaccurate. By default, Clipspeak's gestures are mapped to those commonly used by English versions of Windows.
You can download the development version.
