Hi Didier and Chrys,

Thanks guys for your confidence in my humble efforts! Feel free Didier
to include the script in the Slint toolbox.

Indeed Chrys, I use Slint as my platform, so it is of interest that Orca
can be scripted as well. I thought of the need for scripting Orca after
running into some accessibility issues with some programs. Anyway, let
me go through the SOPS documentation and learn what I can.

Thanks once again for this great console screen-reader!

@Chrys: Ishe uses Slint (maybe among other distributions) which provides SOPS.

@Ishe: you will find the documentation in your Slint system in:

For sure your script will interest other Slint users!

I will include it in the SOPS package if you agree.

Howdy Ishe,

Awsome! This is for sure useful to others. I‘m all in with having a central
place for storing scripts and addons. Let me create an repo on github for that.

By the way :), are you using a Desktop on your linux machine? If yes, maybe are
you using Orca? If yes, do you know that you can use your script with orca as
well using SOPS ( simple orca plugin system)? I created that years ago and used
it as base for fenrirs script executor (so those are very compatible but some

Hi Storm,

Thanks for that link to your scripts. I also support the idea that there
should be a central repository where users can post their scripts.

As for now, I only have one script that I wrote out of desperation to
get battery status. Let me try sending it as an attachment, perhaps you
can also add it to your other scripts. Or, others may find it useful as

Howdy Ishe,

You could create a git repository of your scripts. I have one at:


Although, now that I think about it, maybe we should have an "official"
script repository on github. Most people are familiar with the github fork
and pull request system, so that may be the way to go. Then you could fork
the repository, add scripts, and do a pull request. It would make it easier
to have a central place to send people to for scripts.

Thanks for this scriptable screen-reader! After going through the
