Re: windows virtual desktops
At the risk of being off topic, but hopefully not, why would you use them?
I ask because I looked into them. The thing I'd want to do is have them be saved and put stuff on them, e.g. all my audio stuff on one, games on another, something like that. But the big thing it seems to do is have apps/windows open on them. So for example, as I understand it, instead of running Firefox and Thunderbird and Skype and a game, and switching between four windows with alt-tab, I could put Firefox and Thunderbird on their own desktop.
But then that means I have to hit ctrl-win-left/right arrow to get to whatever desktop they're on, and then once I'm there, alt-tab between windows. Additionally, as I understand it, while it saves the desktops if you restart, you have to open whatever you want on each desktop again, it doesn't automatically, say, open Firefox on the Mozilla desktop.
So from a screen reader perspective, what's it doing to have eight virtual desktops? I'm honestly curious because I keep thinking they're an interesting idea, and then I kind of look into them, and then I can't see why I'd want to use them. But that's probably my lack of imagination, and nothing against virtual desktops.
I also don't leave lots of windows open, if I'm done with Thunderbird, for instance, I close it. I only open it up when I want to do something with email. Sometimes I'll have a reading app open and I'll go do something in Firefox and maybe open up multiple windows looking stuff up, but that's about it, and then I close Firefox when I'm done with that. Maybe that's why I can't see what they do.
