Re: NVDA's normal navigation mode


Yes, it should be an option. If you want the word spoken then you should have the option to have it say it. Or set the sound to that if you are not a beginner using NVDA.Or, if you are a beginner to NVDA. Yes NVDA rocks! What I’ve always liked about it is this! You can add your addons as you like not pay for it with them added.  If you are not a computer coder then you don’t need them where as if you pay for an expensive screen reader you pay for them weather you want them or not.  Same with the voices. I like how you are given the choice to buy them and add them to NVDA. I like how you are given the choice to add the things you want as you choose.  I hope these words are right. I don’t want to ruffle people’s feathers.

I'm not making a general statement that spoken words are better.  I'm saying that when someone begins learning the Internet, they are thinking about all sorts of things.  I think that hearing the words will both help remember the terms and what they mean and that it will make it a little easier for the beginning student.


I also think that automatic mode switching should be off for beginning students.

And they do.  You just want to insist that using spoken words is "better."  I don't think it is given how frequently mode changes (as things are set up by default) and that extra verbosity just gets in the way.  The two sounds are quite distinct and not used otherwise contextually.

I do not understand why some seek to separate a person from their actions.  The self is composed of an individual’s thoughts, actions, and expression, which are contained in and actuated by the body.  What you do and say is the clearest indicator of who you are.
