Re: Another NVDA question

It's not just in Windows 10.  Now and then, I see times when Windows b reads something that other methods won't read and I also see times when other techniques read something that Windows b doesn't read.  I don't see this often, but I see it now and then and if I can't find something on screen I think should be there, I try all methods until I find one that works, if any do.  Also, because of the complexities of looking at all the layers using object navigation in some programs, it's simpler and easier to just use Windows b and let everything read at times, until it gets to what I want.  Then, if I stop reading very quickly, object navigation, which follows what Windows b is reading, is in the right place or just about the right place.

There are still some bits of software where nvda b will read stuff that
neither screen nor object nav can venture though. That seems to be a bit of
an issue on soome windows 10 screens.

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.
