Re: caret browsing question?


 

You know I havn't needed to use that feature for a bit.

Granted nvda does have its own carrot settings so maybe thats why.

I havn't needed it but maybe wi will try it with some stuff.

I havn't needed screen layout either or anything like it.

Those who use Windows 10 Narrator may be able to discuss the question more. But for one thing, we don't even know if any screen-reader is aware of the virtual cursor used in caret browsing.  Just because a virtual cursor is present doesn't mean a screen-reader is aware of it and I doubt it is.  Just because a real cursor is present, doesn't mean a screen-reader is necessarily aware of it.

I just tried an experiment.  I turned off browse mode in NVDA.  I then turned on the virtual cursor in Firefox.  NVDA didn't respond in any way when I moved the arrow keys.

Interesting. I figured it was redundant, but I guess you'd need it
without the virtual buffer, so it's probably more useful for things like
narrator then.
