Re: Using Nvda so I get the entire screen

Yes and at times can get into a loop repeating itself for ever till its interrupted, but nevertheless it can be very handy since there are times when screen and other navigation modes will not see what that can, and this can enable one to point out a problem in, for example a bug report.

If you are asking about reading the current screen and nothing more, that command is NVDA key b.

But that command won't necessarily read the full screen. It may read just the focused structure, such as if you are in a dialog, it may read just that. (If you are in some other part of a program, it may read the full screen.

As the description says when using input help, reads the current foreground object.

What is the keystroke for nvda to read a whole bunch of good stuff? May
it be changed?
