Wow! this screen reader performs faster than an other I've have been using, but don't know the name of.
I have a question: Despite I don't speak neither write chinese but I can translate it, on the help & feedback section of the screen reader there's 2 qq groups: one is private while the second gives me a question. I want to colavorate with them, in case I have problems with the reader. I have been showing to some of my Friends and they liked it. Don't know what the latest versión is, but I'm gonna enjoy it when is fully translated, I mean sorted, so I could translate into spanish. Is the translation going? I really miss this screen reader in a while, since I use Talkback all the time.
@Nuno69, Did you saw the eMail I've sent you kind of yesterday?
Thanks and sorry if I was gonna annoy you, but I have university for 3 hours.

Subject: Commentary Screenreader - huge updates, work in progress and an announcement



Hello!

So some time ago I posted here about this chinese screenreader, which as you probably remember had some pretty innovative stuff on it as translator, OCR ETC.

Now I would like to inform you about some things.

1. The program is more or less in english now. 90% of the interface is in english now, there are flaws in the translation but I will be fixing them ASAB

2. There's the screenreader's whatsapp group, the link is:

https://chat.whatsapp.com/BgLbrGKmvQ2LmNVO0VmonW

3. You can buy the screenreader in the group. Just ask there and I will get back to you ASAB

4. The link to get the screenreader is:

Well, the actual developer does not speak any English, but yeah. It would be cool to see a Telegram group. I've even considered making one myself, for those that don't want to use Whatsapp.

I've heard from some that everyone is on Whatsapp, but I guess that is not the case.

For all who are on the Eyes-free list, @nuno69 is not the dev, but a support agent.

Take care!

Hello!
Even from this unfinished shitpile, which is my manual you can make your opinion.
Warning, I didn't set up the website yet.

Commentary Screenreader: user guide
Written by Nuno (nuno69a 'at' poczta 'dot' fm)
1. Introduction
1.1. What is Commentary Screenreader?
Commentary Screenreader is a screenreader for the Google Android operating system. The thing that makes it better than every other screen reading software available on the market is how much innovative features this program has.
They include: build in translation service, build in Voice Assistant, OCR, object recognition and many, many more!
1.2. System requirements
The program has the following system requirements:
Device: the target device should be an ARM X86 or ARM X64 compatible device. It is unconfirmed if the program will work on any other CPU architecture (Android X86 or other)
Memory: Commentary Screenreader requires atleast 50 MB ROM memory and 1 GB RAM memory to run fluently. It might be possible to run the program on lower-end hardware, however the reliability and usability of the software is not confirmed.
Operating System: The program requires minimum Android 4.4.2 to run, however some features are available from Android 8 upwards only.
1.3. Permissions
The program requires some special permissions in order to make it fully usable. These include:
Microphone: used for consuming the build in voice assistant.
Managing phone calls: used for proper altering of the speech settings in different states of the device.
Memory permissions: used for reading installed plugins, extensions, sound themes and other third-party components.
Location: used for consuming the build in GPS service.
Camera: used for some OCR capabilities like object recognition, scene recognition ETC.
Other permissions are required for proper functioning of the program and denying them is strictly discouraged.
1.4. Getting help
There is a number of ways you can contact the support team. Probably the most reliable one is Telegram. In order to join the Commentary Screenreader official group, please navigate to the following URL:
https://t.me/jieshuochat
Other ways include E-Mail (written at the beginning of the document), and our forum at
https://jieshuo-screenreader.com/forum
2. Installation
The installation process for the software is straightforward. Make sure you meet all the requirements shown above and then proceed to the following page:
https://jieshuo-screenreader.com/download
Depending on the device you are downloading the file on, you might place the download on your target device.
After you're done downloading the file, navigate to the path where the file exists and execute it.
Warning! On most Android devices you will be prompted for disabling the security feature which prevents external applications from being installed. It is strictly recommended to re-enable it just after the installation process finishes.
In order to enable the screenreader you have to navigate to your accessibility settings and enable the Commentary Screenreader service.
Warning! Remember to suspend your previous screenreader before enabling Commentary, as gesture conflicts may occur.
3. Gestures
Commentary Screenreader has a very flexible and extensible gestures system. These are divided into the following types:
Basic gestures: gestures used for the basic operations. They are mostly performed with one or two fingers. If the gesture requires drawing of an angle, the first half should be performed across the whole screen and the other half might be shorter.
Fingerprind reader gestures: gestures performed on the fingerprind reader. This feature is available from Android 8 and above, and not all devices support it. It is known that the feature is supported on All Huavei Devices and on some Xiaomi devices. However the exact model numbers are not known.
Multipart gestures: gestures which are made of two or more basic gestures. There is no default setup for any multipart gestures. They must be setup on your own.
Edge gestures: gestures performed at the very edge of the screen. Because of how hard they are, there is no default setup for them. They must be set up on your own.
The program might also be used with keyboard, volume buttons and headset buttons, if applicable.
3.1. Basic gestures listing

Hi.

Hmm, after reading the manual I see the same problem with this screen reader as I see it in Talkback, a lot of complicated swyping gestures to open menus for choosing a selection mode and the like. wouldn't it be easier using a Voiceover type rotor gesture to switch if you want to jump by chars, words, paragraphs and the like? Also, why would you need gestures to go to the home button or recent apps? You mostly have a button at leased for home and if not, you have a software w´button.

I will certainly try the reader out, but as it sounds now, it runs into the same gesture mess which talkback has.

Greetings Moritz.

Hömma, willze watt von mir oder wie, weil wenn nich, dann lass dir mal sagen, laber mir kein Kottlett anne Wange und hömma, wo wir gerade dabei sind, dann iss hier hängen im Schacht, sonns klapp ich dir hier die Fingernägel auf links, datt kannze mir mal glaubn.

Hello guys!
Some features I did not find in the reader: The possibility of darkening the screen, a way to navigate through titles, links, buttons, etc.  And a way to control the speed of tts through gestures.
Anyone know if this screensaver has it?

Complicated two finger+gestures are patented by Apple, so Android must move around them. Two finger gestures are really one finger performing the gesture, but 2finger is a passthrough of sorts. Long press is a similar effect.

I'm the only adventure at c: master hahahaha I have unlocked just about everything!

Lol, Samsung said fuck you to Apple and stole the gestures from them and that's why I respect this company
