Welll, now that the JAWS-Users list has been shut down, which happened abruptly and without warning last night, this list is likely to become even more active.

Hi Listers

 

Any opinions on using Audio Description on Netflix? What are some winning combinations - smart TV with or without Roku 3? FireStick? Better on tablet? Better on PC? Better with Apple TV? Any failed combinations? Known issues?

 

Thanks

That depends, at least from a "how it looks" perspective, on the type used.  It certainly appears that either some use a 2-space convention or the type itself has a somewhat wider space.

When it comes to proportional fonts some "compress" a space far more than others do, but all compress it in comparison to "wide" letters like M and W, for instance.

I wish there were a way to convey this in a truly meaningful way for those that cannot see.   The differences between fonts, in many respects, that are all proportional fonts can be radical.   For those here who may have once been able to see, think about the difference between how a True Type font such as Vivaldi or Palace Script look when compared with Times New Roman.   Even though both can be read with relative ease, when the content is short, try to imagine reading an entire book in one of the first two script fonts as opposed to Times New Roman.  I'd be exhausted by the end of the first page, because letter form matters, and matters a lot, when ease of visual scanning and processing are involved.   There are an awful lot of fonts that were developed to be "visually interesting" for things like posters, invitations, and the like but are not ever intended to be used for article or book length material for publication and reading by the masses.   Any of these being machine read, or converted for Braille displays, are exactly the same in those contexts.   There's a gulf that cannot be fully bridged due to sensory modalities at play and the fact that, in the case of Braille, the whole idea of font as I experience it is absent.

Cudos to FS for a couple of improvements I haven't seen documented:

1. Allowing use of the ribbon in huuuuuuuuge Access database files. To extract reports at work from our 16000 item Access database, I for years had to use either NVDA or narrator, as JAWS would freeze up. Today I can use the ribbon to export small reports from this humongous database without switching screen readers. Yea!

2. In Excel with JAWS 2018 if I select a series of numbers I can read from the status bar "average, (a number), count (the number), and sum" (a number, the total). With earlier versions of JAWS 2019 only 'average' was spoken. Now all three items are available. I use this function often to total student hours. Yea!!!

I happen to disagree, but hey. I still use two spaces after the end of
a sentence as I still find it easier to read text, even word processed
text, where that convention is followed.

Hah..the tone was indeed a little on the strident side. It’s not something I care enough about to get worked up over. I vaguely remember either my father or some grade-school teacher trying to insist on the two spaces. But as I started to read more, I literally was only seeing this regularly from people used to using typewriters, or at least that’s how it seemed.

Actually now that I use braille output more than speech, I find myself surprised at how many people on these lists for instance use the two spaces.

It’s ok of course – just an observation.

There exists scads of research out there in regard to what makes text more (visually, not machine) readable.   It's pretty well known that serifed fonts are easier for humans to read than ones without serifs.

I thought it was actually kind of amusing to read the linked article passionately screaming that one space was enough and to find myself having a harder time reading it as a result.   Single spaces in proportional fonts are often very narrow, as they generally only need to be when separating words, but that makes them insufficient for separating sentences to my visual taste.

There are certain feuds that will never be settled.  This is one of them.  I'll continue using two spaces after a full stop before commencing my next sentence, thanks.
