Re: How to read Command Prompt using NVDA
Brian's Mail list account
I think the point to make is that a command prompt window is not like any other. Its a kind of dead display, with one live edit area which is focussed normally. To read results after they are displayed you have to use the review cursor.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
To be quite honest, myself I cheat and send all output from a command to a text file somewhere.
Such as pin.exe address >pinresult.txt
then I simply view the text file at my leaisure. If you want to append to it just use >> instead.
Piping is something that dates back to those days of yore of Dos and was to some extent nicked from CP/M

That doesn't give us much to go on. What are you pressing?
You should be using the review cursor.
The keys are in the commands reference, but if you've got a numpad then
numpad 7/8/9 should read lines regardless of which layout you use.
