Ok. Makes sense; however, Orca still runs with speech turned on.
I'm not sure I get your point here.
For this reason, locking keys still need to be announced.
They will be, when Orca is doing its normal thing.
This is a normal standard most AT developers have. On the other hand,
maybe we want to be different than them?
I'm not sure I follow you here, either.
Either way, can we have some sort of alert put in the settings
somewhere that mentions something about announce displayed text only
is a setting for cognative disabilities?
An alert? In the settings? I'm not so sure about that. In the existing
documentation, however, is the following statement:
Only speak displayed text
Checking this checkbox causes Orca to only speak actual text
displayed on screen. This option is intended primarily for low
vision users and users with a visual learning disability.
I can add a statement to the effect that NumLock and CapsLock state
changes will not be announced if that setting is set.
