Add hotkeys to Winamp that will announce the elapsed time, remaining time, and the total track length. Currently, to extract this information, one has to consult the 'jump to time' dialogue box (which opens using the ctrl+j keystroke), and calculate the remaining time themselves.

This is a very important thing. I think it will be useful if we have unified keystrokes for the famous players not only Winamp. It will be easy to remember.

See http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4078384/software/nvda/plugins/winamp.py mfor an enhanced Winamp app module which includes this functionality. However, I don't think all of these features should be accepted into the main distribution, as they aren't available to non-screen reader users either; e.g. explicitly setting volume to 25/50/100%. Reporting of remaining time is fine, as it's probably easy for a non-screen reader user to determine this quickly, so a screen reader user should have similar access.

A new program, entitled MP Access, created by the same person of the Enhanced Winamp NVDA App module, has been released to the public.
In addition to the already mentioned winamp App module, this program also adds enhanced support to Foobar 2000.

Update: There is an add-on available from NVDA Community Add-ons website called Extended Winamp which performs the functions listed in this ticket. Thanks.

Not sure what to think about this issue. It seems the extende Winamp add-on covers the issue raised here.

@jcsteh Mind if I close this as wontfix?


jcsteh commented Jul 3, 2017

I think we could take a PR for this, but it's not something NV Access will work on.

@jcsteh jcsteh added feature and removed enhancement labels Jul 3, 2017
