Today I released the beta version of my newest NVDA addon, which reads subtitles for all videos, even live streams!
LION, Live, Intelligent OCR for NVDA, is an addon which uses the OCR technology to periodically scan the screen and report only the text which has been changed, avoiding repeating static text. This last feature is the reason I called it intelligent .
To toggle it, use NVDA+alt+l.
Some of its most important settings are the OCR interval, the time between scans, and the possibility to crop parts of the screen from scanning, which which allow you to remove tv logos or other text which may be repeated unnecessarily. Also, it decreases CPU load and generates quicker OCR results.
After you change a setting, toggle the addon for it to make effect.
The OCR target setting doesn't work very well at the moment, hence I called it a beta. I thought that, in these times, the addon might help people kill boredom, even in this beta stage.
Use full screen video, at the best quality you can find, since this addon works like human eyes, a little worse than them, for now.
