Re: Why is the NVDA report time not accurate to the second

Hi

What happens if a new minute starts between when you   fetch minutes then seconds? All elements of the time should be captured at the same point.  There will always be a lag between when you grab the time and hear the announcement of it but at least the time will be consistent.

 

Cheers

If you do make something that announces time to the second, make sure that the

seconds announcement is generated just before speaking.

 

In sudocode, I mean:

 

fetch hours, minutes

speak hours

speak colon

speak minutes

speak colon

fetch seconds

speak seconds
