Re: Screen reader speed in demo

When I was looking at “demos” on Youtube it would have helped to get an idea of how fast a power user might use the screen reader. Like, quickly blow through some tasks just to give UX’ers like me an idea of what we're dealing with. Then slow it down so we can comprehend the reads, pauses, keystrokes, etc. I’d be interested in watching the demonstration if you happen to record it!

Regards,
Darryl
