Re: when on a web page nvda doesn't select a link

Gene New Zealand <hurrikennyandopo@...>


Try the following if not done already

When the browser is open use the NVDA key + letter V

Make sure you are in the webpage first.

you should hear nvda say use screen layout on, if it is on turn it off with that same key combo.

That same setting can be done through the browse mode settings with the same name make sure it is unchecked.

This will put both the line and link on the same line where the other when on will have the text on one line and the link on another. Usually in that case you have to tab to the link.

any how give that a whirl. any how when i do also bring up the elements list with nvda key + f7, i usually press the letter for the link i want until i get to it then simpley press the enter link and i am there.

I sometimes happen to encounter it, so I would usually repeat an action so that it does not fail for the second time. If it is not working for you, I activate the focus mode, then I tab to the desired link, and then I press enter, so that I activate the link. If it is to no avail, I play with different browsers. I also make sure whether a web page is maximized, so that NVDA is successful in communicating with it.
