Orca 3.24 Screen Reader Enters Development, Promises Numerous Improvements

Orca 3.24 has entered development recently, and, a first preview, versioned 3.23.4, is now ready for public testing for those of you who want to get an early taste of what’s coming in the final release of the application, which will launch this spring on March 23, as part of the GNOME 3.24 Stack. There are numerous improvements implemented so far in the Orca 3.23.4 snapshot, and among those that caught our attention, we can mention better support for handling web pages whose content is constantly and quickly replaced, the introduction of custom support for ARIA switch role, along with improvements to how ARIA regions are displayed.
