i'm surprised Steve as I heard about it in 10th grade, first year in
high school.

Hi Laz,

Actually I thank you. I really genuinely didn't know of this technique. I
am doing this from the point of view of a totally blind user.

All the best

Some of you may not be aware of the fact that Steve is a dealer for several
screen readers in the UK who may apparently be using a promotional technique
commonly referred to as "card stacking," which is used to knock down a
competitor's product by pointing out any real or imagined shortcomings in
order to make your own seem better to the consumer. While the uninformed may
be fooled by this technique the informed consumer who takes time to check
into the product himself without the added bias and rumor will simply make
up their own mind after looking at all the available information.

He is also doing this to NVDA on at least one UK list where people are
seriously considering moving from Window-Eyes to NVDA instead of JAWS.
Since he joined this list I can only imagine that his bottom line is the

One good thing about this "card stacking" technique is that it opens up the
door to actual improvement that could be made in NVDA so I say, please
continue Steve.

While this is your choice, I must highlight that the average user
really doesn't really see these issues as standard. You, on the other

a different screen reader. Undoubtedly, these features will be good. I
can say that the digits issue is being tested at the moment in
snapshots, but I assume will only give you the opportunity to choose
between digits and the current default, which is controlled by

Agreed. It will never be my primary screen reader, until more
configuration is added.

The inability to switch off blank lines when cursoring, no key
labelling, the inability to switch numbers to digits or handled by
synth, I could go on with this one. But no, it is simply not
configurable enough by the average user yet.

I agree I’m also surprised in outlook2010 when you are arrowing throw
folders it doesn’t say NVDA 9 unread again a feature other screen
have. I also am surprised you can’t label buttons in a program or on
websites. NVDA is missing some very obvious things in my opinion. If
added these things it would probably be my primary screen reader.

Surprising that something as basic as key labelling is missing though in
NVDA. All the other screen readers have it.

NVDA says copied to clipboard in browse mode because Microsoft makes
feature available. NVDA has done this for a long time. I don't know if
did in the early days but this has long been the behavior.

Running latest released version of NVDA on a win 10 64 bit machine.
Just noticed that while in a browser, IE or Chrome or Firefox, when
selecting text and copying it to the clip board with control c NVDA now
says copied to clipboard. I don't think it did this in the past. still
no announcement of pasted from clipboard or cut to clipboard. Have I
totally lost it or is this something new and if it is new can we get
more such key labels added as well?
