Re: [NTB] Accessibility Issues
- Hi Veli-Pekka,
Currently we only have the Blind User Mode to check which does
the following. As far as the other items you listed, I'll send
them on to Eric to make sure he takes note of it for future
releases. (He is busy programming now; "reclusive mode" :-)
The feature is at View | Options | General and is called:
Blind User Mode:
Autoscroll hides dialog when active and message dialog boxes make
a sound when displayed. The Find dialog box will automatically
close after a search operation and the Replace dialog box will
close after a "Replace All" operation. When an item is selected
from the Quick List, Outline, or Clipbook list, the focus remains
on the list control instead of jumping back to the document. This
makes it easier to use NoteTab with screen readers.
