IF accessibility public build

Postby Orinks » Thu Jul 11, 2019 4:57 pm

Hi Steve,

Given the accessibility build's relative stability, are you going to upload it to flight1 soon to make it the public version?

Perhaps with P11? I think if we do everything else like the reader autotaxi and all that that's phase 2, and phase 1 is just getting the main stuff accessible, which it pretty much is now.

Thanks.

Yes, probably a good idea to get everyone on the new version as soon as possible.

This new version is also available from the Ideal Flight Downloads page.

The upgrade focuses mainly on Accessibility but there are many improvements where necessary, and some new features. Please see the Report page for details.


Work has already started on the next Ideal Flight version which continues with the accessibility theme.

Please note that the new speaking module comes only with Ideal Flight 10 Special Edition with >augmented unlocked, and the Prepar3D v4 version Ideal Flight Professional.

I'm expecting to upload an update before Christmas. All versions have some work on them to correct some minor issues, see the Report page for details.

The speaking versions, IF10 SE >augmented for FSX and IF Professional for P3D v4 64bit, speak out all the messages that IF makes to the sim. Also most of the Autopilot commands and controls are spoken as they are used. Speaker voice and rate as well as output method (speakers headphones etc.) are all selectable. A major subset of commands has been incorporated, with the rest to follow. It's not possible to speak about every action with every control in the sim, but most are accessible.

The plan is that after Christmas this shall be fully fleshed out with selectable items for speech and other options. Also some degree of flight assistance will be included.

Continued development and support will be included for all versions.
