Re: Reading Charts

But we don't know if that is at all likely.  I am assuming that the machine speaks and that the data has already been heard at the time the pressure was taken.  It's possible that there is a bug or problem with the machine so it isn't stored correctly but if it was correctly spoken, that would be very unlikely.  Also, my talking machine allows me to go back and check memories with speech.  Every time I've done so, the memory is correct.
 
While I agree that someone might want the reassurrance of making sure, it is very unlikely that errors will occcur.

No screen-reader can read images.  There is no written text to read.  Maybe
you could use OCR to make the charts readable for a screen-reader but if
accuracy matters, I have no idea how accurately the numbers would be
rendered and you would have to check numbers that look wrong or not routine.

But I don't understand the question.  You said you want to send the charts.
Aren't you sending them to a sighted person?  Why does it matter if NVDA can
read them?

My apologies I should have mentioned that the charts are sent as images.
