Re: Say all


I should have said object review or screen review?  I just tested and you must be in object review for the command to work to read the entire document.  If you are in screen review, just the current screen will be read.

Are you saying you have to be using object navigation and not flat review?  I've never compared.  But your terms don't match any NVDA terms for navigation and review settings.

You have to be in global screen nave not screen nav for that one to work
 It is actually what I use to avoid moving the cursor when reading and is
actually the say all command in Dolphins Supernova.

There is another way you may be able to listen to the file even if other
suggestions don't work.  Use the command numpad plus.  There are three keys
on the last up and down column of the numpad.  the top one is a regular size
key.  The second one is a long key and the third is another long key.  You
want the second key, the first long one from the top rightmost column of the
numpad.  At the beginning of the file, press that key.  Reading should start
at the beginning and continue.  If you want or need to stop, pay careful
attention to where you are stopping.  Remember a number of words in their
correct order.  Write them down if you aren't sure you will remember them.
You will have to find those words, using the Notepad search command control
f.  I am not explaining all you need to know to use the search.  If you
listen to the file in this way, the review position will change but it
appears it is not exactly where you stopped reading.  If you move to the
exact position where you stop in terms of where the actual cursor is, you
can press the key you pressed before and reading will start from where you
left off.

The numpad 2 key is for read current character when used by itself.  When
used with numpad insert It moves you into a navigator object inside of the
one you are in.  for example, if you are in an object that says Wordpad
window but you aren't in the actual window, that command will move the
navigator review into the window.  these are NVDA commands.  They aren't
related to the problem being discussed.

This can also happen pretty much exactly like this if you use the numpad 2
key instead of the actual down arrow key?

Stay well

seen the same thing happen once in awhile.  the cursor doesn't move down as
text is read and after a little while, reading stops.

  This is most likely a problem with your synthesizer. Try another one.
