Re: Initial Windows 11 experience with NVDA


 

Bob,

          Your post is triggering this message, but it is in no way aimed only at you:  Windows 11 and NVDA are not synonymous.  Windows 10 and NVDA are not synonymous.

           Discussions of what one may be finding with regard to Windows 11 really belongs on the Chat Subgroup.  I have been trying, for quite some time, to make the membership think about whether what they're discussing is NVDA, versus Windows, versus a given application program when it comes to shortcuts, settings, etc.  These things are different, completely different.   Windows and applications program shortcuts and settings are entirely screen-reader agnostic.  They are the same whether you're using NVDA or JAWS or Narrator.

            There is also a dedicated Groups.io Group, currently known as Windows 10 for Screen Reader Users, which is soon to undergo a name change, that is dedicated to all the post Windows 8.1 versions under current support.  That, or the Chat Subgroup, is where findings regarding the latest Windows operating system should be discussed at length.

             Given that Windows was developed as the intended 21H2 release to Windows 10, and rebranded by Microsoft very, very late in the game, it's unlikely that there will be any huge changes from an accessibility standpoint.

              Even discussions about new features and settings of Windows 11 is almost certain to be screen-reader agnostic.  The tweaks will be done with new Windows keyboard shortcuts.

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.
