Re: select and copy not working
I didn't state that properly. You can't tell if select is
just checking what is on the screen. I was thinking about
cutting and pasting. I believe NVDA has a command to read the
selected text, but I don't recall it. However, if you are moving
and selecting and you don't hear NVDA say selected as you move,
that is a good indication that selecting is likely not working.
But whether NVDA itself is interfering with selecting or if it
just isn't saying select when it should and selecting is occurring
may not be able to be known definitely. But if you move and copy
something to the clipboard and it is there, selection must have
worked, or if you select and delete.
and of course, as I said, you can try things like select and delete or copy to clipboard with another screen-reader. But whatever you do, I would first unload NVDA and run it again and/or reboot.
If you can't copy or delete what you intend to select using more than one screen-reader, then it is very unlikely that the screen-readers are the problem and you aren't hearing select because nothing is actually being selected.
