Braille Verbosity Schemes
SuperNova includes four default Braille verbosity schemes that have been carefully designed to address the needs of specific groups of Braille readers.
Minimum: Provides supplementary Braille output for someone primarily using another access method. Minimum shows only the text on the screen, which is useful for checking spelling, punctuation, grammar or for proofing. Minimum is not intended for complete functional use of the application with Braille alone as it does not show the state or types of Windows controls. Minimum Braille verbosity is useful for new Braille readers to use in conjunction with other access methods as there will be less clutter shown on the Braille display.
Low: Displays text and also the common states of Windows controls, such as the checked state of checkboxes and radio buttons, the positions of track bars and progress bars and whether controls are disabled. This scheme is intended for confident, experienced Braille users, or users who are making some use of another access method.
Medium: Provides good general access in Braille. It includes the text and state information shown by the Low verbosity scheme, plus the type of the control, such as buttons or list boxes. Medium verbosity will also indicate the cell position in tables and whether cells in Microsoft Excel have comments, errors or formula text.
High: Expands on the Medium scheme by including the number of items in a menu or list, the size of tables, the text of comments, errors and formulae of cells in Excel, whether links have previously been visited and shortcut keys to activate controls in dialogs and menus. Suitable for users with larger Braille displays.
NOTE: the verbosity labels were changed in version 11, read the list of old and new Braille Verbosity items.
