Hmm, well it’s working now. I guess it was just temporarily confused. Haha. Thanks again.

Hi,

Is NVDA installed on the laptop? If yes, it might be that NVDA isn’t detecting touch capability on your laptop’s monitor (for this, we need a short log fragment).

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi everyone,

 

I recently purchased a touch screen monitor for my desktop PC and NVDA works as expected – when I touch the screen, it speaks aloud whatever I touch. However, I just got a new laptop that also has a touch screen and NVDA is not behaving that same way. When I touch my laptop’s screen, whatever I touch is activated immediately instead of spoken aloud. Does anyone know why this might be? I looked through NVDA’s settings but didn’t find anything. Strange that it would be different on these two machines.

 

Thanks,

Luke R.
