This add-on gives information about CPU load, memory usage and other resource usage information.


  • NVDA+Shift+E: presents used ram, average processor load, and battery info if available.
  • NVDA+Shift+1: presents the average processor load and if multicore CPU's are present the load of each core.
  • NVDA+Shift+2/5: presents the used and total space for both physical and virtual ram.
  • NVDA+Shift+3: presents the used and total space of the static and removable drives.
  • NVDA+Shift+4: presents battery percentage, charging status, remaining time (if not charging), and a warning if the battery is low or critical.
  • NVDA+Shift+6: presents CPU Architecture 32/64-bit and Windows version and service pack numbers.
