Wy not just use read to end? You won't hear any blank lines then.

Because it does not solve the problem totally. For example: what if I want to read the previous paragraph, but there is a lot of blank lines between the current and the previous paragraph?
An add-on like this would help me a lot.
Thank you!

I have no objection to an add-on or feature in NVDA that would skip blank lines when you up or down arrow reading the next line of text. I don't recall seeing that asked for in the past and as I understood the question yesterday, it was how to avoid blank lines when down arrowing through a message, appearing that the person was reading line by line.

When reading documents in a word processor or mail as HTML, it is my understanding that control down arrow or control up arrow will read by paragraph, skipping blank lines in documents. I haven't used that feature enough to discuss it further, others may have.

I read the original request as Gene did.  I thought it might be possible to control this either with punctuation level or possibly by adding a regular expression match for a blank line in the default dictionary, making its substitution be nothing at all, but neither of those methods seem to work.

If any other regex geeks are reading this, the expression I used to match a blank line is:  ^\s*$
I still have "blank" being announced when I am down or up arrowing line by line through text.

Hi all,

This request has been made to NVDA developers directly through this
Github ticket: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/2522. I
encourage you to contribute to that conversation by possibly sharing
(i) use cases or scenarios where you experience this, (ii) why this
has a negative impact on your experience, and (iii) other pieces of
context for this issue that might make its importance more clear to
the devs.

Thanks.

Hi,
Please note that core developers might not be able to get to this issue for a while as we prioritize evaluating existing pull requests and high priority bug fixes and maintenance work.
