Jene, I, too, prefer the default behavior of NVDA to not wrap.

It would be much more convenient to go to the last item I’m looking for and

I respect that and this may be your preference. However,
having a toggle would allow you to continue to enjoy doing things the way you
like doing them and would also give others the freedom to navigate with the wrap
feature enabled. JAWS enables this by default but contains a toggle for users
who don’t like it. I was unaware that third-party addons existed to facilitate
this. I will investigate them and will also encourage the developers of these
addons to consider having them approved by the addons community which will make
them easier to locate. I personally prefer to download NVDA addons from the

no such setting. I think that, after a short time, you may get used to
this not occurring and it will fade away to a minor annoyance or perhaps
times, I consider it an advantage not to have rap. Let’s say I am going
downa page looking for something. I want to see if I’ve found all the
relevant headings or buttons or whatever I’m looking for because I’m not sure
which one I want to use. If I find what I want near the bottom of the
page, then have a rap occur, I am once again at the top of the page. It
would be much more convenient to go to the last item I’m looking for and receive
a no more buttons or headings, etc. Then I can work with the last item if
it’s the one I want or I can move backwards to the one I want which may be far
closer to the bottom of the page than the top.
don’t have a strong feeling about this, I think page rap is an example of too
much automation which creates as much or more inconvenience than it tries to
another question occurred to me just now. Does rap cause improper jumping
back to the tops of pages in today’s environment? Many pages change these
days as you move through them. they display more of the page as you move
down. This is to accommodate portable devices.
question is, say you are moving down a page by heading or by a control such as
by button. Does rap cause the screen-reader to rap to the top before the
page changes and appear to show that you reached the end of the page when you

Wrapping Around Web Pages When Using Quick Nav
When I am navigating a web page
with quick navigation keys (H for headings, E for edit fields, etc.), when I get
past the last of these on a page, it does not wrap back to the top of the page.
With JAWS, it wraps around and I find this useful. Is there some setting I can
change to make it wrap around?
