Re: I am really loving Nvda's object navigation


 

Gene, please discuss it. I, for one, some of us do not know.

Hi, Molly,

I think screen review is a way to get around the screen when you can’t do it
with just regular keystrokes.

Hey guys?
What is screen review? I’ve never heard of it.

I never use screen review, I alwyas use object nav as for me I can get
around and skip windows I don't want to see. the laptop layout even though
I'm using a full sized keyboard as it just feels more like mac os for me.

known.

Screen review is very easy to explain in terms of how you switch to it and
use it and I will discuss it if people want to know.

Hi,
As I said multiple times before, screen review won’t work in newer apps, but
I do agree that in some cases, screen review is helpful for some tasks.
Cheers,
Joseph

However, there are times when screen review provides access to the same
things and is more convenient to use.  Object navigation can provide access
to things at times that screen review can't.

Hi,
One important thing to remember: I recommend using object navigation for
cases where you can’t navigate with a keyboard. Object navigation commands
(and for that matter, Golden Cursor add-on) won’t replace the value of using
keyboard commands (let’s not go into Golden Cursor add-on, as it is way
different than object navigation). Part of what makes NvDA useful (or for
that matter, any screen reader useful) is distinguishing when different
methods are appropriate.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hi.
Happy holidays.
I’ve not tried the golden cursor yet, but it sounds interesting. My goal is
to be able to use object navigation in all my favorite apps, word, outlook,
etc. It’ll probably make navigating them much easier. It really is neat.

Yes!
That is why I love NVDA so much!
You can get to every element on the screen whether it be a toolbar, a button
on the toolbar, or what ever!
It is beautiful to have the Golden cursor add-on to navigate with the mouse
as well!
Go NVDA!
Have a great holiday everyone!

Hey guys, Molly here again.
I just like to say that I really like Nvda’s way of navigating objects. It
is great to be able to press Nvda plus shift and the arrow keys to explore
items on the screen I never thought were there. I am fascinated by how it
works. It actually reminds me of how VoiceOver works on the Mac, but I don’t
want to get in to that.
Anyway, it’s very cool.
Happy Holidays
