Re: NVDA saying form

David Mehler


I am also seeing this behavior. I have not changed any settings
between my previous NVDA version and my current one.

I don’t update NVDA using the updater. I generally test new versions by

updater, this setting evidently isn’t. You evidently had it off before.

I checked and the setting is on by default in recent versions. I don’t know
how far back this setting has existed. Since you didn’t hear form and out
of form announced, at some point, you turned the setting off. If it should
be retained by the updater and isn’t, this bug should be corrected. This
setting also announces landmarks and I wouldn’t be surprised if you wanted
to avoid that verbosity as well.

I don’t know if this setting used to be checked by default in NVDA. The
setting to change is in document formatting. Uncheck the check box that
says announce landmarks and regions.

Hi Don and List,

I also an hearing "form, or landmark form" on web pages with edit fields.
This started a week or 2 ago......................................
I am using current version of chrome, win10 20h2 and n v d a 2021.1.
Of course, I am not aware of changing anything.
Just more mutant electrons I guess.

Running the latest released version of NVDA on a Win 10 system Something has
changed after the update to the latest version of NVDA or maybe the update
of a addon.
On a web page if I get to a edit box to enter some data NVDA first announces
form. Where do you turn this off?
