Hi Robert,


Can you tell me how the window hierarchy changed? The only thing I notice so far is that my silence previewing feature is broken. I hate working on that because I have to identify what changes when previewing starts and ends, and those changes happen very fast! Anything about what changed you could tell me would be greatly appreciated.


You mentioned a release soon. When is the 2.1.3 release scheduled? If it's soon I may hold off on releasing the JAWS script-- except for Silence Preview in the alpha It's ready to go-- just have to write the message.


Thanks.


Gary

Thanks very much for the interest.

I'm preparing the addon for you.
I try to make it ready for Audacity 2.1.3
Unfortunately, the window hierarchy of the new release has changed and
I have to compensate for this.
However, I think it should be ready tomorrow evening.
Hold the line...

Hello.
I also think that this addon would be very interesting for me. Could you
make it available? Many thanks.

Hi Autery

There do not exist official Addons but some private attempts.

I have written my own one but it is without installer. This means that you
have to put the *.py file manually at the appropriate place.
(e.g. at "C:\Users<your
name>AppData\Roaming\nvda\appModules\audacity.py")

It has certainly less features than the corresponding JAWS script.

Here are some features:

1. The additional (key) commands can be viewed within the input gesture
dialog of NVDA [NVDA+n,p,n], under "Audacity.
Some do not work because I've got a special build of Audacity and I'll
omit them here.

2. NVDA+e
   pressed ones, reports the selected tracks.
   twice pressed, reports all muted tracks  pressed three times, reports
all tracks that are soloed.
3. Page Up/Down
   Jumps 3 tracks up or down.
4. NVDA+a
   Reports current audio position, during stop or playback (or
recording...).
5. NVDA+j
   Reports the selection start
6. NVDA+k
   Reports the selection end or says "long" if "Length" is chosen in the
selection tool bar.
   Those three commands omit automatically unnecessary zeros and alike, for
instance 02:00:22.300 gives two hours 22.3  seconds. Pressing those
shortcuts quickly two times in succession spells the values.

6. F9 or F10
   reports the playback or recording peak respectively.
7. NVDA+volume down/up
   extends or contracts the left selection boundary and plays a preview
from this position.
8. NVDA+shift+volume up/down
   extends or contracts the right selection boundary and plays a preview
from this position, i.e. a bit of what comes after the selection.
9. Pause (on the keyboard)
   key to tap a tempo. A high click means that the measurement has started.
Tap eight or more times to "catch" the tempo. A longer delay resets the
measurement. Use the next key combination to read the measured tempo:
10. NVDA+pause
   pressed once, announces the measured tempo in beats per minutes, i.e.
128.7.
   If you're in the input box of the click track (or rhythm track) of
Audacity's generate menu, this value will automatically inserted.
   Pressed twice, announces it in classical tempo description, for instance
"Largo", "Andante" or "Presto"
11. Key for context menu
   opens directly on the first item of a track's drop down menu, for audio
tracks, this would be "name". In general, this add-on avoids unnecessary
information such as "Audacity->Panel->Track view->Track one, when e.g.
switching from another application or the tool bars and speaks just "track
one".

I think that covers the main points.
Note: A description of the commands is also available with NVDA's input
help enabled (NVDA+1 toggle).

Tell me if this add-on could be of any help to you or if you would like to
have another feature added.

Hello everyone,



Is there any Audacity add-ons for NVDA?



If yes, where could I find them?



Thanks in advance!!
