Re: Object Navigation - Where and How Do You Use It?

Hi Brian

I understand you are using Object navigation in this case to gain knowledge of how to use it but I thought I would make you aware of the Virtual Review add-on.  With Virtual Review installed, pressing NVDA+Ctrl+w when the About window is in focus, will open a temporary textual window containing the information from the About window you can’t access in situe using the keyboard.  You can arrow around the virtual review window to read the info then press escape to dismiss it and return focus back to the About window itself.

You can’t use keyboard commands to look at various system information displayed on that screen – you must use object navigation to read them.

Thank you for this specific example.   Again, this is very handy for me to have as I now have a specific location where playing with object navigation gets me a result I cannot get otherwise, and I've been told what that result would be.  I just went through the list of items near the top of the About pane and got "status green" for each after it was read, and had no idea of exactly how I was supposed to (or even if I could) get to that information via NVDA.
