locked Re: Poll: I think ducking should go; and other NVDA features proposal and wider discussion


I am sure many people miss out on addons because they don't know about them.

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!
