locked Re: Poll: I think ducking should go; and other NVDA features proposal and wider discussion
this, I am in complete agreement with, because on the whole, the concept you're proposing flies in the face of what NVDA is truly all about.
It has been stated time and time again, that they do not wish to turn the software in to bloatware, and quite frankly, we have problems a plenty with another screenreader that shall remain nameless for that very reason.
Quite apart from the fact the other charges like a wounded bull for a product that quite frankly should be readily accessible to any and all blind people, and not require a government grant just to have your computer fully functional and mildly accessible for your work place, among other things, it's fast becoming apparent that said product while a good many people like it and use it, is almost becoming as big in file size as the operating system it is supposed to make more user friendly for us.
and while you might not utilise a particular feature set,, others do, so it should not be removed because not everybody uses it. it was introduced for a very good reason and some of you are wanting that feature taken away? I'm sorry for my harsh words, but that is rather arrogant and gauche of you to believe that yours is the right way to go about things.
The developers have had to weigh up the costs of implementing certain feature sets out of the box as against the footprint on the overall system, and they have done a marvellous job at keeping that footprint relatively small.
Hell, unlike others in the field, there is no display driver added in to the video chain, and that, quite frankly is no bad thing as even something as trivial as that can and does decrease performance, especially when on the whole, UIA is a far better way of gathering the information a screenreader needs.
