Enable Windows Navigation by Numbers; Provide Voice Control of Windows Desktop & Apps by Enumerating all Visible Selectable Objects
Google provided Android users with full control of Android when Google implemented voice access back in 2016.
A video of what needs to be implemented for Windows can be seen at:
(Completely hands-free control with Voice Access for Android)
As per the video demonstration, each time the user navigates to a new page, every selectable object on the page is assigned a unique number.
To select an object all a user has to do is to say the number for the object they wish to select - simples!
With regard to Windows, when navigation by numbers is selected, every single selectable object on the Windows Desktop and within Windows applications, including menu objects (when selected), is to be labelled with its own unique number. In addition, it shall be possible to adjust the font size of the unique numeric labels assigned to each selectable object.
It is to be noted that number selection is to be the primary method of navigation; only necessary frequently used voice commands are to be supported - such as Show Numbers, Hide Numbers, Scroll Down Slowly, Scroll Up Slowly, Take Screenshot, etcetra - i.e. typically used commands not normally visible on-screen. It may be helpful to allow Windows users add their own voice commands.
NB: An extensive and feature-rich voice command list as afforded by Nuance in their Dragon range of voice recognition products or Microsoft in the Windows Speech Recognition 'engine' is NOT required; indeed, it is doubtful that few users ever master the extensive list of commands provided!
Thanks for passing this feedback on to us Peter. If you enable Windows Speech Recognition you can speak the "Show Numbers" command, and that will add a number over each control that can be selected. Please continue to leave your feedback here and upvote posts that you agree with.
