Re: strange problem with NVDA on websites with lots of adds
I use Windows 7 but my comments may well apply to Windows 10 as well.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
This problem may be related to another problem I've seen on occasion and I've seen one or two other people complain of. that is, repetition of text when using read to end on certain sites. When this happens to me, I copy the page to the clipboard, paste it into Notepad, and read the material I want. But that is hardly an ideal solution and keeps links from being seen and followed.
The behavior I observed on this page is that now and then a phrase will be skipped. I can go back and read by line and the phrase will be spoken as it should be. I saw this happen three times in the part of the article I read on this page. I had to read quite a bit of it after the first two skips near the beginning for it to happen a third time.
Also, a different problem I've seen a few people complain of and which happens to me is that NVDA will stop reading in a browser when using read to end on some pages. This appears to be some sort of reaction to one or more types of formatting because it isn't limited to any specifric site or page but may happen on this or that page on a certain site but not on others on the same site.

Okay, it's happened pretty consistantly with articles on this site.
This is just one, but look through her links and you'll probably find
others too. I also happen to find this topic quite fascinating!
