Thats true actually.
I didn't mean all addons but yeah we do need to be carefull on
what we should and shouldn't have especially because nvda could
end up bloated.

I agree with you on the ducting. I don't use it a lot with
NVDA because I use a computer and long before ducting, I used 2
separate sound cards and have total control. However, I am
using ducting on the iPhone and the way Apple has instituted it
works great and is definitely an advantage. For those who can't
run 2 separate sound cards, it is truly a godsend.
As far as including a huge number of add-ons with NVDA, I also
disagree with this one. One of the good things about NVDA is
that it is under public license and is subject to a lot of
different additions and variations. I would hate to see it
become so bulky that is gets like JAWS which has so much
bloteware and features that many people don't use that it is at
times extremely redundant. People in developing countries
probably appreciate the slim and streamline aspects of NVDA. If
they need it only for word processing, why should they have to
include a bunch of add-ons that would make the download so much
larger and perhaps create a situation where there could be
conflicts with their desired tasks.
...just my opinion.

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!
