APIs such as IAccessible2 and UI Automation may have custom states on their objects. Examples of this could be a contact in an instant messaging program, with a custom state of ''away' or 'online' etc.
NVDAObjects should contain a customStates property which is a list of strings which are the current custom states.

  • IAccessible2: use localizedExtendedStates, or extendedStates.
  • UIAutomation: use itemState

customStates should be a dictionary, where the keys are the non-localized custom states, and the values are localized states. I.E. for programmatic use you use the keys, for speech and braille you use the values.

This is similar to #235 and might be useful at some point

I am closing this in favor of #235 since the discussion goes further there and touches this aspect as well.
