Re: Learning to be efficient with screen review


If there is only one object, you don't necessarily have to go into review mode. You can simply use the review commands, numpad 8 for read current line, numpad 7 for previous line, numpad 9 for next line, etc. When doing so in object navigation, you are reviewing the current objject.

Going into screen review doesn't work on web pages because of how browsers send data to the screen.

Are you talking about using commands such as numpad 8 while in object navigation or are you talking about actually switching to screen review mode?

I agree to a point, however I would learn how to use screen and document view. There will come a time when you must use them because programs don't work well in object mode. For example, there is only 1 object but a lot of stuff on the screen that can be clicked, or using screen review is the only way to get around the app/website. I know how to use all the views. I prefer screen review and use it for getting around when I have a recalcitrant app/website.

You need to use object navigation. Screen review is much more limited in Windows 10 for technical reasons someone else will have to explain. When you use NVDA key b, you are actually reading all the objects available to the program.

I have found the NVDA screen review inconsistent and I am trying to figure
out why and how to get around the problem.

Try this experiment:
1. Type Windows with R to issue the Run Command
2. Type an invalid drive letter say M: or I: and press enter.
An Error message will appear.
3. Use Insert numpad 1 or Insert Numpad 7 to switch to screen review (you do
not want to be in object review).
4. Use the 8 and 9 numpad keys to read the error message.
This works fine.

Now press Windows I to go to settings.
1. Arrow down and right to Update and Security.
2. Use Insert-B to read the entire screen. That works..
3. But now try these review mode commands to review the screen.
Insert 1 or 7 to make sure you are in Screen review mode
7 8 and 9 on the numeric keypad to read the top, current and following lines
and keep pressing 9.
You will only hear the word "Bottom".
They do not work. You cannot read the Windows update screen in settings
using screen review.
You can explore your computer with object review, but I can't figure out how
to read that screen, slowly at my own pace with the screen review mode.

Why is this? When focus cannot go to all areas of a screen, how can I read
what's there? Or even if focus can go there, how can I select and copy with
NVDA-F9 and F10 or read it slower?
