Hi guys,
I distinctly remember reading about an NVDA add-on that attempted to make accessible web input boxes that NVDA would incorrectly read as blank. That would come in handy for the website I'm trying to use, but I've completely forgotten what the add-on was called, or where I read about it. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

If you for whatever reason wish to contact me, the best way to do so is through Discord (Minionslayer#7549). You'll get the quickest response times, and by extension, a higher priority. I also sometimes post my thoughts (for the better or worse) over on Twitter at @Minionslayer2.

It doesn't look like it's Browser Nav, and I can almost swear I read about it on the official listing. I'll have a look back through my history. I'll check out HammerTools as well.

I also think it is browsser nav. here are  the relevant docs:
Many modern web applications, notably Jupyter among others, use edit boxes, that are not that accessible, e.g. they appear blank, but you can copy text in and out of them using Control+A, Control+C and Control+V keystrokes.
BrowserNav offers an experimental feature to edit those edit boxes in a more convenient way.

Only thing is, it doesn't look like it's working. It installs fine, an entry is added to the add-on manager and it's enabled, but none of the default keyboard shortcuts work, and there's no section for it in the Input gestures dialogue. I'm running version 1.12, and NVDA 20.3.
