When I type in vs 2008 code editor, NVDA tries to read the whole text after each key press. It is rather annoying.

It is caused by event_valueChange on the editor object. I can provide a patch to ignore this event for the devenv app module, but I wonder is it a right way to fix it? Why we don't ignore value change events on editable controls in general?

Replying to aleksey_s:

Why we don't ignore value change events on editable controls in general?

Because in theory (and perhaps even in practice for some controls), not all editable text controls use the value to represent text. They aren't necessarily one and the same. The abstraction should only know about text, not value, as value is an implementation detail.

So if you have nothing against the fix, I'll commit it into main. Without it, usability of NVDA in visual studio is doubtful.
Milestone changed from None to 2011.1

Alright. We're heading into a translatable string freeze soon, though, so once that happens, user visible changes since the last release need to be avoided where possible to avoid unnecessary changes to the What's New. In other words, this is probably the last change like this that will make it into the release and it needs to be done in the next day or two. This does need a What's New entry in bug fixes.
