Re: Keynote for NVDA

Hi Ron,

In this case I think the subject line refers to the opening or focus of this nvda convention and not a piece of software.

I’ve had egg on my face before, so I always have paper towel close to hand!!

Hi Group,

I have not participated in the NVDA Conference and so I am ignorant of this Keynote business.  Are they incorporating Keynote Synthesizer into NVDA or somehow making it usable with NVDA?  Is this a free or paid product?

I used to like the way that synthesizer sounded.  Any information on list would be greatly appreciated.

Hello everybody and the NVDA Conference folks. Sky here. I wanted to let you guys know that I went on TeamTalk and listened to the keynote, and it was the greatest keynote I ever heard! I am also very happy that it is being sustainable for the future and so on and so forth. As an adaptive technology specialist training blind folks how to use screen reading software I can tell you folks that I defenatly do training on NVDA, and my clients enjoy it too!  however, I am finding a shortcoming with it that I think could be addressed in future versions, and I will list it below.

Often times when I train on NVDA, one of the first things I will do is I will download the clipboard speak add-on, so that the client knows when they have copied text to the clipboard. Is there any chance that this function could be put into the core? The reason is that it would save myself from having to add the function and it would also help some of my less technically minded clients. Because often times, as we all know, the less technically minded clients want things to be able to work straight out of the box, and they’re not going to fight with their screen reader just to get something to work. Thanks, Sky.
