From the NVDA manual:

Desktop: shift+numpadDivide

Laptop: NVDA+control+[

Locks the left mouse button down. Press again to release it. To drag the mouse, press this key to lock the left button down and then move the mouse either physically or use one of the other mouse routing commands

Subject: [nvda] Drag and Drop with NVDA

 

Hi guys,
So, was wondering if this is possible at all using NVDA? I mean, drag and drop as far as I know is something that need to be done using the mouse.
From a blind perspective how it would be done if at all possible?

Thanks :)

Cheers,

Re: Somehow I missed this: NVDA reads Kindle books!

Hope Williamson <hopeisjoyful@...>
 

Yeah, because Amazon decided to allow you to use your own screen reader to read the books 2-3 years ago. It’s a nice feature sometimes. Although I still prefer the TTS on the Kindle for PC, which is also still available.

Well, next time I want to study for law via the power book I was reading on kindle in 2017 I'll know it will be more accessible, or at least more accessible by what ever time that is, or if I have to study somethingn for a job etc.

This is good good news, and it could only get better with nvda eh?

All Amazon apps are free, including Kindle, whether it is for PC, your phone, or something else.
The books, however, usually aren't free, although there are often promotions where you can get free or discounted Kindle books (http://ereaderiq.com, for example, will email you every day with some of these).

The chat subgroup is for anything, anything at all, that is off topic for the main group.   It has been primarily focused on various technical discussions, but need not be so.

The current NVDA Group Welcome Message and the Monthly Reminder both contain the following two paragraphs.   If the question posed in the second one is asked and answered honestly, you know whether your topic belongs in the main NVDA group or on the chat subgroup:

The NVDA Group has a Chat Subgroup (see: https://nvda.groups.io/g/chat, Group Email Addresses section) that has as its purpose the asking of virtually any “off-topic” question about anything you can think of, including just socializing.  It should be used for exactly that purpose. Only those who are already members of the NVDA Group can subscribe to the Chat Subgroup.  The Chat Subgroup has generally had technically focused topics related to using specific program features.

Before choosing where to post, please ask yourself the question, “Is what I’m about to ask directly related to controlling or using NVDA, or whether a specific program is accessible with NVDA?”  If that can be answered, “Yes,” then post to the NVDA Group, and if the answer is, “No,” then the topic belongs in the NVDA Chat Subgroup.

I think it's pretty clear that questions about Python coding and how to use Notepad++ features are an obvious, "No," when the above question is posed and the advice given followed.

All it takes is asking that question, answering honestly, and posting accordingly.

If the discussion were about how to code in Python, what the structure of a JSON file is, or similar, that would be off-topic but would also be perfectly appropriate for the chat subgroup.

I hope that some of our members that are also Python coders will have some suggestions for you.

We are getting a bit far afield from the topic of the list, I think, but I have
to point out two things here:

1. Kindle Unlimited can be less than $10 per month, if you buy a one or two year
subscription during the week of Prime Day (sometime in July); and
2. You can only get books that are in the Kindle Unlimited program--many aren't,
although many are.
