locked Re: NVDA for Android and IOS

Not sure what the point would be.
NVDA is a windows application, there's no advantage to porting it to IOS or Android, since those platforms already have screen readers, (IOS even has one built-in), what would be the usage case for making another one?
Android has multiple screen readers, so AI suppose another one
there couldn't hurt, but it won't be NVDA, since porting a windows
app to a linux environment isn't really something that can be
done easily, (or in some cases) at all, because of the way they
work, and to be honest, NVDA falls into the second category. To
make a linux screen reader, you need to do things entirely
differently than on a windows system. Basically, it would be a
matter of rewriting NVDA from scratch, and since there's already
some very good screen readers for linux, Android and OSX, there's
not much point to it.

Are there any plans in the pipeline for developing an NVDA app for Android and IOS? Is it possible?
