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

Thank you for the information. Your suggestion is actually in the works already. Our developers are creating a new implementation that will not be browser dependent. Unfortunately, that is about a year away, and we have a client that needs accessibility much sooner than that, so I was hoping to create a solution for the interim.

Hi,

At the moment there is no way of creating domain specific add-ons. I think a better approach might be looking into making your app usable with browsers other than (or in addition to) Internet Explorer, as IE is under maintenance mode at the moment.

Cheers,

Joseph

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.
