Re: NVDA menu

The answer is object navigation.


If you use the number pad to read by object, you can get the info in smaller chunks. So NVDA and the number keys are your friend. Use numbers 1 and 9 on the number pad on their own to switch between previous and next screen review mode. If you want a kind of invisible cursor like JAWS for example, you need screen review. If you want to examine particular items in the operating system hierarchy, then object navigation review mode is what you want.


Please refer to the user guide for a much better explanation.

I honestly don't have the answer to your direct question, but since you say the information you need is near the very end of what NVDA is announcing, could you not snag it from what NVDA just said?

I cannot recall whether this is an NVDA feature, or an add-on, but I am positive that it has been mentioned on many occasions that there is a way to snag the last sentence (or maybe somewhat more) that NVDA just finished saying.
