Re: Hi


It will be interesting to see what others say.  I don't think that it is a good idea to provide add-ons that provide a way to do something that lowers the chance that the most versatile and useful way will be learned.  That was also the problem with the Window-eyes JAWS imitation interface.  It may have gotten some JAWS users to use Window-eyes, but the imitation JAWS interface had less functionality than the real Window-eyes interface.

I was the mentor of this addon initially developed by Rui Batista and
currently maintained by Joseph Lee...

I do not agree that it will force the users to do not learn NVDA review
tools, but it will be usefull untill they learn...
And it is also usefull to users coming from Jaws...
