Re: can't use browse mode to read a google doc in firefox

There's a built-in keystroke in google docs.  Holding down ctrl and alt, press a and then r and you should hear speech.  This is not as effective as continuous reading, as it doesn't move your editing cursor, but you can at least hear a say-all-ish reading.

Hi all,

I got an  email with a link for a google document that is housed on
somebody's google drive. I'm not logged in, so I can't edit this doc,
and I don't want to. But what I would like to do is read continuously
with nvda plus down arrow on the desktop layout. But if browse mode is
on, all I get is blank, blank, blank. With browse off, of course,
continuous reading doesn't work, so all you can do is arrow down a line
at a time which is laborious and slow in a 17-page document. Is there a
solution here?
