Re: I'm dissappointed


But is a old feature. Reading the "whats new" file it was introduced in NVDA 2013.3. Personally, I awaited for that feature for many time (as I comented in other mail, I started to use NVDA at about 0.5) and I used it on the snapshots first... I never understood why NVDA has it disabled by default, but is one think that I enable first when I install NVDA.

Never tested that way!

It is a very good feature not communicated to the users!

I found the setting.  I almost never do anything in that dialog and I didn't know about it.  You don't use left and right arrow, you use up and down arrow, the same keys you would use normally to move up and down a line.

Joseph, I think she was refering to the possibility of pressing
LeftArrow or RightArrow to go back or forward one line, phrase or
paragraph during continuous reading...Unfortunately that is not yet
possible in NVDA...
