Re: Audio Recordings with NVDA (Brandon Keith Biggs)

My reason for using a screen reader like NVDA is that smart designers
have already worked out what syntactic content might be useful to
listeners besides just going text-to-voice.  Though not blind, I would
appreciate hearing an ALT attribute while I'm driving down the road,
sweating at the gym, or crammed into an airline seat.  Likewise table
headers as I hear cell contents, and even link titles even though I
can't click them, but knowing I can later if important.

My hidden agenda is to explore this as a service.  Could Access2online
expand to provide audio recordings with such embedded syntax of
websites, product descriptions, requests for proposals, etc?  If so, I
would be subscribing to my mission to invent future technology jobs for
our prison inmates and parolees.  If so, I would also be adding a reason
for content producers to be accessible, because an audio version would
be more useful.
