What exactly is this feature?
I see references in T113708 but not in the source code of the extension.
$ cd extensions/Math $ ag speechRule (nothing) $ ag speakText (nothing)
Would that be linked to http://www.gh-mathspeak.com/examples/grammar-rules/ and Web speech API?
Speech help hints are generated by the Mathoid service, not the extension itself (it just relays whatever Mathoid generates). It is currently disabled for performance reasons, but if there is enough support to have it, we can probably enable it.
@Beta16 I agree that this is very handy for accessibility but we will need evidence that community support exists for this before considering enabling it. Can you provide us with a page/document that shows some kind of community discussion?
@Dereckson , @Danny_B , why does this specific accessibility improvement need a community support discussion? Surely we have broad community support for any reasonable improvement that helps our blind readers and editors. Is this not a reasonable improvement? cost/benefit..? I assume all possible renderings include some sort of alt text ; so is the concern that a spoken version isnt strictly necessary for accessibility?
@mobrovac , what are the performance reasons you mention? I'm assume you mean server-side performance, and not increased network traffic or client-side browser processing time, or any of myriad other types of performance reasons.
Is this performance reason serious? how bad does the performance degrade? Will users somehow experience this performance problem (e.g. slower render), or is something only the ops team will 'see' and fix/manage by adding more processors where/when/as required?
