You are right, there is no package for Python 3.4.

In the project description:

'''Adds support for the standard Python curses module on Windows. Based on https://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/#curses. Uses the PDCurses curses implementation.'''

Do I have to install the curses package mentioned there before install/use windows-curses? How to use this windows-curses? still "import curses"? I am so confused!
