Re: Problem with windows 11 notepad, and browsers
I don't want there to be any misunderstanding of what I am saying. I am not saying that the person who started the discussion shouldn't have discussed problems with how Notepad or other programs work in Windows 11 compared with how they work in Windows 10. I am pointing out kinds of approaches I think are important when working with programs and screen-readers. As I said, screen-readers work in complex environments. I am not objecting to people asking about or pointing out problems. I am saying that where there are problems, unless or until they are resolved, you may be able to efficiently work around them in the meantime. I've been using read current line in screen-reader searches for a long time. I don't know if the annoyance will ever be corrected but I can avoid the excess speech problem using Reade current line.
I also see, from time to time, people asking about excessive and
repetitive speech when an e-mail message is opened in this or that
program. Opening the message, then when the message has opened
fully, issuing the read to end command stops the behavior. If you
do this regularly, it becomes second nature. You may want until
the moment you hear a bit of speech before issuing the command or
you may want to try to develop a sense of when enough time has
passed that issuing the command will start reading. You may save
a bit of time that way.
