Tasks completed in the week:

  • Started the week by reading the documentation of speechSynthesis Web API.
  • Spent time on understanding the existing implementation of text to speech in the a11y external script.
  • Developed the initial design of speech velocity feature.
  • Implemeted the speech velocity so that the user can choose the desired the reading velocity from : Normal, fast and slow.
  • Tested the speech velocity for cross browser compatibility.
  • Improved the announcements made by other functions of a11y plugin when Screen Reader is enabled.
  • Spent time in figuring out the reason of a major bug in the a11y plugin, i.e., sometimes screen reader starts reading, and doesn't stops till the tab is closed.
  • Prioritized the task for next week.
