Re: NVDA Web Browser Problem

Hi Arlene,

WINDOWS+B is a Windows command itself, not an NVDA command.

If you open the taskbar settings (easiest way is to open the start menu and start typing "taskbar"), then "Select which icons appear on the taskbar", make sure that "always show all icons in the notification area" is checked then it will ensure that you don't need to look in the notification overflow area to find some.

I think providing access to all notification tray icons even without that setting is the main extra thing that the Jaws setting does?

That being the case, we didn't want to use up a command to duplicate something which could already be achieved with an existing command.  As for why Windows chose WINDOWS+B to get to the notification area, I have never figured that out.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hi Arlene,

JAWS is my primary screen reader, and I do not have any issues with it.  I
am trying to learn NVDA.

Hi, Do you have another back up screen reader to rectify your problem? If
you do, then try your back up screen reader and see if you have that same
problem!  If NVDA is your primary screen reader you are in trouble.

Folks,

Several weeks ago, my NVDA (version 16.4) was unable to access Firefox
(51.?).  When I opened a webpage, the arrow keys just said unknown when I
used them.  I uninstalled NVDA and Firefox and re-installed both.  I am now
on NVDA 17.1), and I have the same issue.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
