Re: Another NVDA question

Gene,

 

What a strange thing to assert!

 

As I speak, I can use browse mode on this message and look around at areas that the live cursor cannot get to. I can also use this feature reading Word documents. I can, in fact, use it everywhere that the JAWS cursor moves to.

 

Would you like to clarify your statement?

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

Browse mode doesn't apply.  It is used in web browsing and reading PDF documents.  It is a specific feature that certain browsers and PDF readers support.  The JAWS cursor equivalent is what is being asked about.

Hi, Howard,
You will need NVDA's browse mode to move freely around the screen.
NVDA + space bar toggles between focus mode and browse mode. You can tell you are in browse mode when you hear a high  "pip" sound. When you are in focus mode you will hear a dropping "chopping" sound. A good idea is to turn on keyboard help with NVDA +1 Then try NVDA+ space bar and listen to what it describes as you repeat it a few times.

All the best,

Cearbhall

NVDA-b reads a dialogue. NVDA-numpad 7 changes review modes, sometimes screen review will read things, sometimes it won't. The next thing to look into, if neither of those work for you, is object navigation.
