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.

Subject: Re: [nvda] Keynote for NVDA
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 board.
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.
