Yes and at times can get into a loop repeating itself for ever till its interrupted, but nevertheless it can be very handy since there are times when screen and other navigation modes will not see what that can, and this can enable one to point out a problem in, for example a bug report.

If you are asking about reading the current screen and nothing more, that command is NVDA key b.

But that command won't necessarily read the full screen. It may read just the focused structure, such as if you are in a dialog, it may read just that. (If you are in some other part of a program, it may read the full screen.

As the description says when using input help, reads the current foreground object.

Ah that happens when you are in an alternate universe to me as well but not the clock as I don't use it. Some things can be a little sluggish to appear.

Well it was in the earlier versions, but I notice unless its changed its name radically, the sound I put in the download is not available on a downloaded copy you need the source etc, that was my point.

Re: Browse mode navigation by heading in large Word document does not always work

Rick
 

Hello Felix:

That did the trick. It took NVDA over 45 seconds to navigate to the next chapter when the 2 key was pressed. I wonder what algorithm is being used in NVDA for this purpose, since it takes such a long time. If I use Word's built-in search function (Find) and I choose to search based on format and I choose Heading 2, it takes Word less than a second to find the next heading 2.

Hi,
NVDA contains a mechanism, called a watchdog, which will terminate certain routines when they block the main message loop for too long.
Maybe this is what happens.
In the Python console, you can type:
import watchdog
watchdog.terminate()
Can you navigate then?
Please note that you should start the watchdog again after completing your tests as NVDA is more liable to crash with the watchdog disabled.
The easiest way to get it back is simply to restart NVDA. But of course, you can also:
import watchdog
watchdog.initialize()
Best,
Felix

Am Fr., 19. Apr. 2019 um 02:42 Uhr schrieb Rick <softwarethatworks@gmail.com>:

Hello NVDA users:



I have a large Word document (over 180 pages) which contains numerous annotations ()comments, insertions and deletions) and is well structured with nested headings. There are 9 chapters at heading level 2 and many subsections at heading levels 3, 4 and 5. In browse mode, I can navigate through the first set of chapters using the 2 key. Each of these chapters is only 5 to 10 pages in length. However, when I attempt to navigate to a chapter that is 60 pages beyond the current chapter, pressing the 2 key has no effect. I can successfully navigate to subsections of the large chapter using the 3, 4 or 5 keys.



How does NVDA navigate a document in browse mode, does it go line by line until it reaches the next intended object, or does it perform a search, using Word’s built-in API’s? If it searches line by line, perhaps I am experiencing the same issue related to a timeout in the elements dialog when too many annotations are present.



Thanks, Rick

Hi Bill,
I joined you in the hunt for this sound and it looks like it's only available for when NVDA is being updated or installed for the very first time.
I also quite like this sound :)

Now, maybe you'll want to subscribe to the chat subgroup, since perhaps it will fit better there.
For subscribing, send a blank email to chat@nvda.groups.io
