Re: Google Docs Menu Issue


wow, thanks! I don't think I need proper tutorials.. I have friends who can help, but this is the first time I had to use Docs after many years, and, though I have Screen Reader support enabled, I didn't know I could enable braille.

Funny that I see all the mnus, but not the content of edit fields...

Ciao, great help! Thanks,

Hello Ollie,

Mystic Access sells tutorials on the google suite "".

In the google suite, you need to enable screen reader support, and on the google suite access menu, you need to enable Braille support.
Look at "".

Hello all,

Taling about Google Docs, I can see the menus and options ok, but when I edit text or enter new text I have no braile output on my pm 40.

Is that normal, orshould I enable or disable anything?

Thanks in advance,


ps: Windows 10 1909 and latest NVDA Alpha.

That’s correct, however, typically when you turn off Focus mode,
you’re able to see the menu and options above the doc edit window.
However, when I turn off Focus mode, the Doc window is the only thing
I see.

I actually think Google designed it this way. Browse mode should be
turned off when using Google docs. Use it in focus/forms mode. Give
them accessibility feedback at the below link.;data=02%7C01%7C%7C31007bfd74304b1fb00d08d7f11c2390%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637242975461848666&amp;sdata=P3T39ZwqcTANVYnDvP5i987kC3vz6hMUHKDl0H6DmbI%3D&amp;reserved=0
