Re: Audio Recordings with NVDA (Brandon Keith Biggs)

NVDA, and other speech to text services, read all table content in a
not-so-easy to understand way when doing a read all command.
True, many websites have alt content and are very nice to read, but the
vast majority don't, or don't have very good descriptions.
I think you should start with Voice Dream reader, then once you have
experienced that, start working with NVDA on something like this.
