Well the OCR API is there so it should be as simple as Microsoft adding a little scripting to sort this out which they can do as Narrator can be scripted for by developers internally at Microsoft. In my humble opinion they should allow any developer to script for Narrator as this would open up Narrator’s use in third world markets where the cost of other screen reader software such as Jaws for Windows is frankly too high to even consider (don’t personally have any issue with FSI products just mentioning the cost). This would save developers from having to download other options such as NVDA which is a great screen reader however developers are busy people and frankly don’t have the time to go off and find other options such as NVDA.
It is really great that we can now tell developers to simply press Control plus Windows Enter on Windows 10 and up comes Narrator. Further more now that Narrator is as good as it is on Windows 10 we should be pointing developers to use it as a testing tool for Windows software and applications.Phil Muir supported this idea ·
