    @jvesouza you want to set a file to be readonly in vscode? I think that is not possible, but we might have extension api for file system providers to set their files as readonly. So in theory an extension could add this functinoality

    @isidorn Sometimes I'm just reviewing a code and by accident I end up pressing a key improperly. As auto save is on, I end up making changes to the code without realizing it.
    If the file was open for reading only, it would not happen.
    Of course the solution is to turn off auto save, but ....
    Isidor Nikolic
    @isidorn
    @jvesouza yeah auto save is awesome, leave it on. For readonly toggle I suggest to create a feature request, ping me and we might add it in the future.

    Hi

    @isidorn
    Hello! You are one of our first users that provided great screen reader feedback so thank a lot for all that feedback through the years!

    @Neurrone
    Thanks @isidorn, I didn't realize that I was among the first. I just know that I open a fair number of issues haha
    I look forward to contributing code wise as well. I also really appreciate the responsiveness of the Vs Code team, its the first time that I dont feel like an edge case when reporting bugs which never get fixed and inevitable end up deprioritized
    Isidor Nikolic
    @isidorn
    Yeah thanks for all the issues :) And thanks for compliments. For contributing, usualy it is best to start a discussion on the issue, and once we figure out a potential solution we can take it from there.

    I think it would be cool if you could cmd or ctrl click a required npm or yarn package and it will bring it up on npmjs.org. Or maybe that could be an extension.
    Isidor Nikolic
    @isidorn
    @mr-winson please file a new feature request. Also this cannel is for accessibility issues and features only.

    We now support Keyboard Shortucts to Start and End a selection. More details here microsoft/vscode#95894

    How do I review terminal output with NVDA? I'm trying to launch a spring boot app and it has several hundred lines of output. As far as I can tell all I can do is go into browse mode and view the last dozen or so lines.
    Jared Stofflett
    @jareds
    Looks like it's easier if I configure my launch configurations to use the "internal console" when running chatty spring-boot applications since I can arrow up and down through the list.
    Isidor Nikolic
    @isidorn
    @jareds yeah, using internal console will give you our integrated termianl which should be nicely accessible. By default you will get the debug console, which should also be accessible but uses a tree to show results. Idealy you should be able to shift+tab to navigate over the debug console output
    Isidor Nikolic
    @isidorn
    If you updated vscode insiders this morning and can no longer update you will have to manually download a newever version https://code.visualstudio.com/insiders/

    Hey folks, feel like I'm going crazy. Could've sworn ctrl+p opened new files in a separate editor, but now it seems to replace whatever file is open. Is there a setting for this, or am I just imagining things?
    Isidor Nikolic
    @isidorn
    @ndarilek Try this one "workbench.editor.enablePreview": false
    Nolan Darilek
    @ndarilek
    Ah, just found that myself, finally found the right Google keywords. :) So I guess what was happening was I was opening files, editing them which automatically disabled preview mode, so they stayed open when I opened another. Is that change conveyed anywhere?
    By which I mean, to my screen reader? :)
    To the screen reader I think not. Ideally the tab aria label should say if it is in preview or not If this is missing, can you please file a new feature request and we can add it. Thanks!
    Nolan Darilek
    @ndarilek
    Thanks for the quick help. That one really confused me. :)
    Jared Stofflett
    @jareds
    @isidorn Thanks for the begin and end selection feature. I just used it for the first time to delete a bunch of old launch configurations and duplicate an existing launch configuration that only required a couple changes. It worked perfectly.
    Isidor Nikolic
    @isidorn
    @jareds thanks. We are having some discussions if "Select from anchor to cursor" should reset the anchor or not. Please provide feedback microsoft/vscode#98087
    Isidor Nikolic
    @isidorn
    Changed the role of the Activity Bar items to not be "button" but "tab". Will also set aria-expanded on each of those items. More details here https://github.com/microsoft/vscode/issues/97563#issuecomment-631520277

    I noticed that the insiders are using electron 8.3.0. I believe that this can improve accessibility in linux.
    Michał Zegan
    @webczat
    do you see improvements already?

    hello. happy GAAD to everyone.

    @webczat I still didn't realize it because today I'm involved in another activity and I haven't used it much.
    Nolan Darilek
    @ndarilek
    Anyone know if the RPM repository is broken? Haven't gotten an Insiders update in about a week.
    Michał Zegan
    @webczat
    okay. I haven't updated for some time
    Isidor Nikolic
    @isidorn
    Correct we are using electron 8.3.0 now!
    @ndarilek I see the RPM new insiders released 3 days ago. There were some insiders versions where we broke the update flow, so you might need to manualy re-download it. https://az764295.vo.msecnd.net/insider/2591ede95a52400d5d22989b16706f9b8b4831da/code-insiders-1.46.0-1590182651.el7.x86_64.rpm
    Isidor Nikolic
    @isidorn
    Due to some regressions we are going back to previous Electron version. We still plan to update to electron 8, but might take a bit more time.
    Alexander Epaneshnikov
    @alex19EP
    @isidorn oh it's unfortunate. can you give issue pointers to subscribing?

    @venkateshpotluri
    Hi, how can I read the message displayed on the status bar without moving cursor focus? That is, when connecting to a remote machine using SSH for example, NVDA announces the operation being performed. If I miss this announcement, I can switch to browse mode, go to the bottom of the page using control+end, and press the up arrow key once to read it. Is there an easier way to read this info without losing cursor focus?
    Isidor Nikolic
    @isidorn
    @alex19EP currently we do not have an issue to track electron 8 update. Though this is one of the blockers for udpate to electron 8 microsoft/vscode#97638 so once that gets looked into we will probably update
    @venkateshpotluri to get the whole status bar read currently you have to lose cursor focus, you can also just press F6 to move focus from the editor to the status bar. Unfortunetly there is this issue on the nvda side nvaccess/nvda#11064
    Alexander Epaneshnikov
    @alex19EP
    thanks @isidorn

    Does --force-renderer-accessibility Flag for electron applications add any functionality beyond what Accessibility Support implements?
    Isidor Nikolic
    @isidorn
    @LexiconCode well that flag is passed to Chromium and it should just enable accessibility support in Chromium. I am not sure if other electron applicatinos do something special for that flag, but VS Code does not, we simply forward.

    Hi, I'm wondering if there is a way to see on wich line number I'm on?
    I have a long file,... untill now I used, for example on NotePad++, to activate line numbers from settings, but there is a way to see it on the fly?
    José Vilmar Estácio de Souza
    @jvesouza
    Chromium accepts the --enable-caret-browsing flag which allows you to select the text displayed on the screen. What would be the effect of this flag on vscode?
