Re: Audio charts

Hi Jason,
I tried running Sonification Sandbox - it doesn't seem to be
accessible. Am I missing anything? I have Java access bridge enabled.
I wish they had a command-line version of their tool, but I couldn't
find any traces of it.

Yes, your feature request is very similar to my idea. What I have in
mind is maybe more quick-and-dirty approach: you select a range of
cells in excel and then press a magic key combination that triggers my
add-on and plays a rapid series of tones. But if someone implements
your feature request, that would be good enough.

Dear Tony,

there is a tool called audio screen but it works only in .svg files which
are opened in browsers in full screen. This is quite uncommon for diagrams
in general. That's why the tool is not being used by most people. Your idea
is very good. i have created an issue some months ago on Github with a more
detailed method which could be very efficient. Please feel free to comment
on it:

Betreff: [nvda] Audio charts

I am wondering if there is a way to visualize time series information as
audio signal? For example the way I envision this tool is that larger
numbers would correspond to higher pitch tones and the entire time series
would be synthesized as variable-pitch sound a few seconds long. I often
need to deal with time series at work and it would be very helpful to get
the general idea of shape of the curve. Reading the numbers one by one is
not an option, since there are typically hundreds and often thousands of

Does anybody know any existing tool capable of that? I am currently thinking
about writing an NVDA add-on for that, but I just want to check if maybe
something like that already exists.
