Re: NVDA Features feedback

Hi:  I apologize for seeing this on a late date.  However,  I must agree on the fact of hearing enter every time it is pressed or a new line comes up.  Not only that you are going to need edxtra coding when it isn't needed.

It is a whitespace character like the tab or blank which are correctly spoken by NVDA.
Tab cannot be distinguished from other whitespace unless announced.  Blank is generally only announced going character by character or line by line if a line is blank.

Newline is very simple to deduce by context, and I doubt that very many would ever want that announced as a routine matter.

Not that I need to understand, but I'd like to:  Why do you have such a desire for Enter/Carriage Return/Newline to be explicitly spoken?  And, as a follow up, how is it that you cannot deduce its presence in almost all cases?

Heaven knows I would not want enter echoed every time I type it just like I don't want space echoed in the vast majority of cases.  But that's me.
