Re: Moving in Notepad

If you want to try another editor, I know for sure that Jamal Mazrui's EdSharp Moves by paragraph when you press control up or down arrow.  (Free program, empowermentzone.com, look for edsetup.exe.)



I'd like to be able to move by sentence too, but that seems available only if you're using NVDA with Word.

JAWS uses scripts for this purpose.  The script looks for a blank line and moves you beyond it.  If you are using a screen-reader that is not scripted to do this, it moves you to the next line by looking for one return.  That is my recollection anyway.  In your case, you say you stay on the current line so perhaps my recollection is wrong.  but whatever the case, NVDA doesn't behave like JAWS in notepad.

I can do it with JAWS just fine and have always been able to.
