locked Re: Poll: I think ducking should go; and other NVDA features proposal and wider discussion
I think that perhaps the most important reason to add certain add-ons to the program itself is that a lot of NVDA users don't know, and won't know, that add-ons exist or where to get them.
I'm very curious if anyone has any idea what percent of NVDA users use add--ons and knows where to get them and how to see what is available. It may not be practical to do such a study but I'd be surprised if more than thirty or forty percent of NVDA users use add-ons. And some of those users may use ones that instructors told them about or installed. The user may not know where to get them or where to find out what is available.

Interesting topic! Personally I only agree with half of it. It would be indeed great if at least some add-ons became part of NVDA, and I would include Screen Curtain among those.
On the other hand, I totally oppose the exclusion of the ducking function. It’s extremely useful, especially with services like Youtube or Google Play Music. Often it’s the only way to hear the screen reader without having to close everything else.
Let’s see what other opinions come up!
