Re: Using the num pad keys to review text


Christopher Gray
 

Hi:

This may explain why I sometimes find myself unable to review an entire window/screen. In a DOS box, things work well. But in other windows, I often can't find what I would expect, say, when using COBRA.

Is there a way in NVDA to move the caret and review in that way? If this is a complicated question, I would be happy for a pointer to the places to look in the UOser Guide/Help.

Chris

Hi,
In NVDA world, numpad is strictly used to review contents of a control, not to move caret as you can do with JAWS.
Cheers,

This issue refers to the same friend of mine who has issues with his Braille display. I say that only as reference. I don't see these issues as linked.


He has opened a word document. He cannot use the numpad 4 and 6 keys to review text, like with Jaws. Is this expected functionality or is there something I've forgotten to tell my friend to help him better? When I open a word document and attempt to read word for word using numpad 4 and 6, I get the same result he does. I don't see any of the text in the document, but, the name of the document and menu options.
