[macvoiceover] Re: macbook battery menu query

For the battery, you're setting a visual display option, and the info that shows up then when you access the battery menu, is its opposite. So as VO can only read the menu option and not the icon itself, it reads the opposite of what you've set.

I thik I understand what is happening. If you look at the safari view menu,
you will see hide this or hide that.  this is the action that will be
performed if you activate the item. This is the case with the battery and even the time menu. It does not tell you what it set to but rather what it
will be set to if you punch it.

  Ah, perhaps I wasn't clear enough.  (also, see my prior note)  I
wasn't saying that the options don't appear to speak the opposite of
what you've selected; I was simply saying that this behavior is not a
bug.  I've given the reasons for this in my earlier note.

Thanks for your response and have a lovely evening!…

Smiles,

Cara  :)

I beg to differ.  When selecting percentage, vo most definitely
speaks time remaining as hours/minutes.  When you select time
remaining, vo speaks the remaining time as a percentage of 100 for
remaining battery life.
Try it yourself, and you'll see this is what happens.

this is not a bug.  When you set that option, you're setting a
visual option, not an auditory one.  thusly, no bug!  <smile>  the
auditory feedback you're getting from VO is simply a voicing of the
status in the menu itself, and not actually reflecting the visual
status of the icon.

HTH and have a great day!…

The time/percent options are reversed.  (and it's still that in

Just set it to whichever one you want, then try it out.
I use icon mode myself, but choose what works best for you.

Hi all.

Just wondering when you bring up the battery menu and choose
show, you have an option for time and or percentage.
Can anyone tell me what the percentage option is for? I've
selected percentage and when looking in the battery menu there's
no percentage option shown. It  is showing me in hours how much
battery capacity is left.
Thanks to anyone who may know something about this.
