Re: Reading parts of the cursor's line


Chris Mullins
 

I tried this in ms Word and it works without moving the Word cursor. You can move any number of lines within the current screen, in addition, Numpad keys 4, 5 and 6 will read previous, current and next word on a line and numpad keys 1, 2 and 3 will do the same by character.

Cheers
Chris

Hi Robert
Assuming desktop keyboard layout, try switching on "Caret moves review cursor" (NVDA+6 on number row), then use numpad 7, 8 and 9 keys alone to read previous, current and next lines.

Cheers
Chris

No problem to read the current line. I often just need reading the line before and/or after the cursor. For instance, with Jaws, insert+7 enable to read the line before the cursor and insert+9 the line after the cursor ! I'd like to do the same with NVDA.

Thanks,

Robert

Hi.
Try pressing NVDA plus L. NVDA will read the current line. Press NVDA plus down arrow. NVDA will read the next line.
Hope this helps.

Hi, everyone,

This is one first question: is there any way to read the current line before the cursor and after the cursor as well?

I'm discovering NVDA with enjoyment!

Thanks a lot,

Robert
