Re: Reading characters phonetically

Hi.

You need to press insert and the number 2 on the top number row to turn reading of characters off. then press insert number 3 to turn on the reading of words if you haven't already done so. I hope this helps?

Cheers,

Mo.

                Hi Chris. My NVDA screenreader insists on reading every character typed whereas I want to get it to say a word when the spacebar has been pressed. I tried insert key (on the number keypad) with f3 and though things had been changed ok. But unfortunately nothing seems to have changed and now if I try insert key with f3 nothing happens. Any help please? Cheers, Steve

Hi

In addition to what Luke described, pressing NumPad 5 3 times will spell out the current word, NumPad 8 3 times will spell out the current line, both phonetically.

Cheers

Chris

If your cursor is on the character, or the review cursor is, pressing the

numpad 2 key twice (desktop mode), will read the character phonetically.

 

If you want it to just read phonetically if you pause on a character while

using the arrow keys, like iOS Voiceover does in character mode, there is

an add-on for that, although I can't find it currently.
