That doesn't tell you if you have copied files or cut them, only text. And
unless you know the number of characters to expect to hear announced, when
there is more than a small amount of text on the clipboard, the function
tells you the number of characters. What if it is text you copied earlier
because, for some reason, new text isn't copied? This feature should be
changed. It should read anything, no matter how long. The user can stop
speech with control, as always. The screen-reader shouldn't decide for the
user what is too long to read from the clipboard. That is a complete
contradiction of the philosophy of NVDA and is not allowing the user to
decide what to hear and what not.

Hi sky

I have not used it for years.

Are you aware that if you say copy text to the clip board with ctrl + C you
can use the nvda key + C to confirm it has been copied. It will either say
what you have copied or say something like to much info to read out I just
can not think what it says just now or there is no content on the clip

I wonder if it could say it audible so you know it has been copied but also
have it so it could be turned off in the add on.

Usually the short cut key is what I use to confirm if needed.

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.
