Re: new member and a few questions

The ctrl+c/x/v situation is that NVDA will voice the keypress in some situations and not in others. From previous posts I understand it is not easy to do in programming terms. As for the add-on, this only confirms you have pressed the correct keys, not that the function has actually worked. I don't use the add-on, it is something I live with and it is not an issue.

hi dan.
and about your last questions, nvda does not announce copy, peist, cut by default and if you want this feature, you need to install addon or contact developers of nvda to include this feature to this great screen reader.

Hi Dan,

Welcome to the group!

Re "Line feed", what program are you in when it announces that? For
me, in most programs, it doesn't necessarily announce anything when I
press ENTER, but as I left or right arrow through the text it
announces line feed when it gets to where I pressed enter? This is to
indicate that it was a deliberate press of ENTER and not just reaching
the right margin for instance.

You can set NVDA to "Speak command keys" by pressing NVDA+4 or from
NVDA's keyboard preferences dialog. This will announce "ENTER" when
you press that key. Note that it will also announce things like
"CONTROL+RIGHT ARROW" as you move by word, "NVDA+END" before reading
the status bar and so on.

Re saving files. Again in word, if I press control+s, NVDA reads:
Save As tab selected Save As Alt, F, A " That is using the
default setup of Word showing the "backstage". If I set it up to go
straight to the save as dialog (file - options - save then check
"Don't show the backstage when opening or saving files".

If I have it set to go straight to the save as dialog, I get:

Save As dialog File name: File name:
Save as type: Save as type:
File name: combo box collapsed
edit Alt+n
selected some filename.docx"
Which is exactly the same if I press f12.

In Wordpad, when I press control+s, I get:

Save As dialog
File name: combo box collapsed
edit Alt+n
selected Document.rtf

In Notepad I get:

Save As dialog File name: File name:
Save as type: Save as type:
File name: combo box collapsed
edit Alt+n
selected *.txt"

Not sure if that helps though?

First I am very greatful for this list and all the
work developers have put into NVDA.

Q1. Instead of announcing “line feed”, Is it possible to cause NVDA
to announce new line or blank when pressing enter to move to a new line?

Q2. Recently NVDA in my class room will not say “file name” when
pressing control + s when saving file for the first time.

NVDA will not say “save as” when pressing f12.

When we press control + c or control + v, NVDA does not announce,

“copy” or “paste.” Is there some setting that is not correct?

Thanks for reading this long email and thanks in advance for your
