Re: Checking file size in the "Properties" dialog using NVDA

CARLOS-ESTEBAN <carlosestebanpianista@...>


If you use keyboard layout laptop, the commands are:

First NVDA+shift+up arrow, and after NVDA+page dawn or NVDA+page up. When NVDA says object review, press: NVDA+up and dawn arrow for read next and previous line, NVDA+control+right and left arrow for read by Word and NVDA+right and lefht arrow for read by characters.

Well, other users says the commands for the layout desktop.
