Re: Google docs with NVDA and Firefox ESR


Is defined on Google docs. If you see the google docs help, you will see that they recomend to change some default keys, for example the NVDA starting key to avoid conflicts with docs.

control plus alt plus z is a key combination that does something else already on my machine.  is this actually in google docs this is defined then?
One assumes this should not clash with keybooard shortcuts or are people going to have to find another shortcut for any program that launches via the shortcut in question?

Hello Mary and all,

Google Docs works fine with Firefox ESR and NVDA.

Did you activate screen reader support in pressing ctrl+alt+Z?

If so, NVDA should announce that screen reader support is enabled.

If you want to write in the document, mae sure that forms mode is on in
pressing nvda+space. You should then be able to use your keystrokes.

I hope this helps.

I have a Windows 10 machine with the latest released version of NVDA and Firefox ESR version. I am able to read a Google document but I can’t interact with it. That is the arrow keys don’t talk, and I am unable to copy text from the document in order to paste it into Duxberry to print it out. Is there a key or a clue to working better with Google Docs in this combination? I suppose chrome would work better, but I have that’s far less than impressed with chrome. I don’t really feel like learning another web browser if I don’t have to. Besides, I get these Google doc link in my email, and fire fox is my default web browser. So even if I wanted to try chrome, I’m not sure how I would do that given the fact that I’m not willing to change my default browser to chrome.
