Re: In relation to Ted Notepad and NVDA

Dejan Ristic


Yes, that's the programme from the link you presented to me.

Well, I'm sure that there are more visual lines, for, when I arrow down, I read the status so that I am sure of the number of line I am on. That's how I know that there are more lines on the screen. The status bar is checked, and when I press the key command to read it, I'm informed of the line number.


Previous NVDA versions worked well with Ted.

Hi Dejan,

I'm not familiar with TED notepad directly, is this the one:

When you move by line, could it be that the text on one line might be fairly long, and TED is wrapping it (visually), but still treating it as one line which wraps over multiple lines?

It's a slightly different behaviour to say Windows notepad, but I've seen it in some other editors.  In generally NVDA should read the text at the cursor, so assuming when you press DOWN ARROW that the cursor is actually moving down by a couple of (visual) lines to after the next linebreak character, NVDA should just be reading where the cursor is.

Kind regards

When I use Ted Notepad with NVDA, it is impossible for me to read a piece of text line by line. When I press either up or down arrow, NVDA reads the text as if it is contained in one line, although it fills up to two, three, or even more lines.

One more thing:

When I type in Ted, I happen to press enter to go to new line, NVDA always repeats what is typed in the previous line, and then repeats what has just been typed.

In order to check whether Notepad worked fine, I filled it with some text, and I found that it worked quite well. It means that I can read text line by line when using up and down arrows.

Thankful once more,
