I can not found a command in NVDA for reading selected elements in lists. Sometimes we need to delete or copy elements, and so I want to know what is selected.
This plugin has a script that reads selected elements, and its total number.

  • Keystroke: Shift+NVDA+l

Blocking #245

I forgot documentation for the script. I have changed the word element for item. Excuse me for my English.
Changes:
Changed title from "Global plugin: report selected elements in lists" to "Global plugin: report selected items in lists"

I have added a spanish translation for this global plugin, considering an example shown by Peter. I have create a locale\globalPlugins folder in the configuration user directory (%appdata%\nvda in installed versions). And there I have included the translation, into es\LCMESSAGES, source and compiled files (selectedItems.po and selectedItems.mo).

I did a quick change to the plug-in, more of a personal preference thing really, this new version says the number of selected items, then says the items.
For example: "3. bla.txt hello.rtf test.txt"
Get the modified plug-in here:

Hello! If you want, you can modify the global plugin contained in selectedItems.exe file, attached in #comment2. It is my las version for the plugin, and it contains code for localization. So your version could be translated into different languages too. Thanks.

Hi.
I am not sure how this plug-in is related to my question.
But I think that I understood what extra this add-on does.
Why isn't this out as a reviewed community add-on yet?
Also, this could be merged into NVDA core.
Please clarify,

Please clarify,

Hi, you asked me about tickets which I have opened and not fixed, or I have understood that. This one is an example.
About NVDA core, I can't decide. Imo perhaps we can use the same keystroke which reports selected text, but to avoid issues I used another one in the add-on.
If you are interested about this add-on, you can request its revision on add-ons mailing list, thought if it's include in the core the add-on wouldn't be necessary.
Anyway it's available long time ago at

Thanks.

Hi:
I also think so.

@norrumar, would you be willing to integrate this into the core, perhaps as part of the existing report current selection command (NVDA+shift+upArrow)?

I have created a t1839 branch for this at

You can review it.
