Actually no, you couldn't support just one screen reader and get away with it. The users of the unsupported ones would chew you out. I do happen to feel that JAWS sucks but if I made a game that supported only Window-Eyes I'd be chewed out for playing favorites. And I'm sure people have been trying to get FS to change their policies for years with no success.

so you are saying:
jaws sucks, window eyes do not, but i cant only support the good screen
reader for what i am trying to do?
I disagree.
you can support only one, indeed.
and in fact, this owuld be a reason for the complainers to actually try
to get fs t change its policy.

That could pose a problem. Window-Eyes doesn't do that but then you couldn't
just support Window-Eyes. And from what I've heard it's a pain in the arse
to get JAWS to not hog the keyboard.

Hello Kai,

My main issue with this is not how to implement the functionality, that is
simple enough. Rather it is the fact that jaws, as the only screen reader
in the bunch as far as I'm aware, blocks keyboard input when DirectInput
is being used. I need to use DirectInput for keypresses in BGT as it is by
far the fastest and most reliable way to work with the keyboard on
Windows. So this leaves me with a bit of a problem. If Jaws is running,
the screen reader API calls would work fine but the keyboard wouldn't. If
Jaws is shut down or put to sleep, the API calls would not work but the
keyboard would. Do you see the problem?

Feel free to get on the forum with this discussion and we will see what
some other users there think.

Kind regards,

Philip Bennefall

Greetings list.

anyone know if BGT has any provisions for interacting with the various
screen reader API's? I would, for instance, like to replace a lot of the
SAPI TTS events with direct Jaws speech output, since Eloquence is about
200
times faster than SaPI.

If not, anyone know if this will be slated for a future release?

Kai
