dcbahr 14 Posted August 3, 2015 Share Posted August 3, 2015 Hi there. I am trying to figure out what format Evernote notes open in when they open in a new window on the Desktop client. This is because I am totally blind and every screen reader I use cannot read a note opened from the Evernote desktop client. It just has a blank screen. However, when I do a Select All and then copy the text to the clipboard and paste into a plaintext app like notepad, I can read the note. The problem is that all the formatting is gone. So, I understand that Evernote uses the ENML for notes, but I wonder if there would be a way to have a note rendered in the desktop client as if it were a webpage, so that I could sue my screen reader's web viewing mode to read the note and its contents? it's as if the note is just an image of the actual note itself. i'm just trying to figure out how to make this desktop client usable because the web clients (beta and regular) are becoming less so as time goes on. But when I open up a new note in the desktop client and look at the window class, it says something like WebhostView. I don't know what that signifies but it seems like there would be a way to get the text of the note in some sort of navigable format. The problem, too, is that I can't read what I've written in a note once i"ve typed it. Because whatever it is being rendered in isn't recognized by the screen reader to read it back. So, my main question is, how is the info in a note encoded in the desktop client and how hard would it be to modify that encoding so that it looks like, say, an email in MS Outlook, which is fully accessible with my reader. Does anyone have any advice on this? Sorry for the long post, but I just wanted to get my ideas out there.Thanks, Dave Link to comment
