Process to make an NVDA app-specific addon for a web-based application


Julie Stoltz <jstoltz@...>
 

Hi all,

I am very new to this group and the NVDA application, and I apologize if I have missed anything critical in the steps to address this.

 

I searched the archives and development guide and did not find an answer to my question.

 

Our company provides a web-based app to our clients. I have been looking into NVDA and I see that it can be used to create application-specific behavior. However, such addons are named for the executable file that opens the application. In our case, our application is opened with a web address in an Internet Explorer 11 browser.

 

Can NVDA work with domain-specific web applications? If so, how should the addon be named? Are there any config settings I could use to create an alias (I believe this is how JAWS addresses this issue)?

 

I know I can create an addon for IE itself, but that option would likely interfere with other sites or applications run through IE, so I don’t want to go that route unless absolutely necessary.

 

Any guidance at all is greatly appreciated.
