Re: Mudlet & screenreaders

I'd say the possibility that NVDA devs accept this request is very unlikely. It was stated a bunch of times that NVDA controller API is not mean to be a full-fledged speech interface and never will be so.

Re: Mudlet & screenreaders

I'd say that a word or line based callback would be all we need. Excellent! Two more questions and then I'll be off requesting these callbacks: 1.

Re: Mudlet & screenreaders

Impossible because we have no way to find out when NVDA has finnished reading the line. If NVDA developers implement this one, will this be possible? Also, is this the preferred way?

Hi, I'm a long-time MUDder and interested to help with testing/ideas as well. I downloaded the Mudlet referred to in this forum (Mudlet-ScreenReader-2.1.1). However, I didn't find any key reference/manual for using it with a screen reader, and honestly, since this is pre-alpha, I didn't expect to fi...

Re: Mudlet & screenreaders

Hi, Thanks for wanting to make Mudlet accessible for the blind. I have tried the system, and have had the same problems as tspivey. I am, also, using the NVDA screen reader (http://www.nvaccess.org/) Thanks again! [Moderator Edit {2016-07-25}: updated link - old one was http://www.nvda-project.org b...
