Re: NVDA announcing teams alerts
There is no reason to believe sighted people get tired of seeing
it. They can ignore the display if they want. Sight is not
necessarily analogous to sound. A stock ticker on a web page, if
a screen-=-reader constantly speaks the updates would be so
distracting and interfere so much with listening to other content
that the page couldn't be used. A sighted person can simply not
look at the ticker.
the interesting thing about the thread is that it sounds as though speech is heard whether you are in the program Window or not. If you are in the Power Point Window, it sounds as though you still hear the notifications. This should be something the user can control and I hope it is made possible.
