Hi.

If you double tap on  the NVDA icon near the clock, a menu should come up. Double tap on preferences, then double tap on settings. Make sure the box to start NVDA and use NVDA on log on screen are unticked. Double tapping on them should untick them. Then double tap on OK.

Finally, double tap NVDA and double tap on exit. Then double tap on OK.
I hope that helps?

Cheers,

Mo.

Re: Learning to be efficient with screen review

Gene
 

Also, your last statement makes no sense. You say you must learn screen review first, then interact with each object with object review. That is not true. When you move in screen review, you are not moving by object unless you are using certain object navigation commands that work in both modes to move from object to object. When in screen review, you can move from object to object, then look at the object using screen review commands. But you say, "I stress a user must learn screen review first, then interact with each element of the screen via object review."

You can often look at the screen using screen review then interact with whatever you are working with wile in screen review. You move to an item, then use the move mouse command or the activate command. Technically, I don't know if those commands are working with the item you are on as an object, but from the user's perspective, you are working with things while in screen review.

If there is only one object, you don't necessarily have to go into review mode. You can simply use the review commands, numpad 8 for read current line, numpad 7 for previous line, numpad 9 for next line, etc. When doing so in object navigation, you are reviewing the current objject.

How do I turn off NVDA on a Windows Tablet?

I have a linx windows 10 tablet. The problem is I cannot turn NVDA off. Can someone help me please?
 


Re: Hot key for tablet mode?

 

No, you have to click tablet mode, the good news is you can just get back into action centre and turn it off, there will be a button that says its on I tried it once to see what I got.

At least there should.

If your system is entering tablet mode without warning, you could have a stuck or dirty board its why I use an external board.

Of course down side is when I go away, I will have a lot of trouble learning my laptop board.

Maybe I should take in fact I will try to take my pluggable bluetooth usb board but I havn't practiced on that either.

I mean I could take a full size about with me in the car but hmmm probably won't.

Failing that, see if you can just reboot the system.

Re: NVDA User Guide doesn't open in default browser

Chris Mullins
 

Hi Louise

You reference the “main NVDA website”, is this https://www.nvaccess.org/ and was it open in Edge when you accidentally opened the User guide? If this is not the correct site, what is the URL of the main NVDA website?

 

Your second statement is confusing as I don’t understand how you opened the user guide in Chrome if you had temporarily uninstalled Chrome.

 

Cheers

Re: Learning to be efficient with screen review

Gene
 

That is not necessarily true and is an over generalization. A user doesn't have to learn screen review first. It is easier to understand and learn screen review first and a lot of people know how to use it from using other screen-readers that have that feature. There are times when you can see something with screen review you can't see in object review. there are times you can see something in object review you can't in screen review. If the user is advanced to the point where he/she needs access in ways many less advanced users do, they should learn both for good access.

But you are making a certain statement that is not true. You can't use screen review on web pages. If you think you are, then you are using object review and you think you are using screen review.

When you are using screen review, you can still move from object to object as though you were in objecct review. I don't use the laptop layout, but if you use the commands NVDA key numpad 4 or NVDA numpad 6, those move you from object to object regardless of whether you are in screen review or object review.

Re: adding or amending an account to the windows 10 calendar

Hi Sarah,

When I did this, I opened the calendar, and, using Object review, moved the navigator object to the previous object with NVDA+numpad 4, or shift+NVDA+Left Arrow. You'll go past 4 or 5 days, then find the go forward or back a month buttons, followed by search, and eventually settings.

Cheers

Re: Drag and Drop

Jacob Kruger
 

Nancy, while don't use it too often, the following keystrokes might do the job:

NVDA + numpad divide Moves the mouse pointer to the current navigator object

shift + numpad divide Locks or unlocks the left mouse button


So, hover navigator object over what you want to drag-and-drop, and carry out the above keystrokes, move over to the target point, and do the same?

Re: Hot key for tablet mode?

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi


Not sure about the hot key for it but have a look in the following area on Windows this is on windows 10

I am guessing you might be using one of those things that can be a lap top or slide off the top to make a tablet?


Use the windows key + letter I to bring up the settings there you will be given I think 13 options. Locate the system one then press the enter key on it. you will be given more options then arrow down the list to tablet then press the enter key. Than have a look under that section. the first couple of settings may do the trick. I thin the first one lets you tell it not to go into tablet mode or go into it change it to the one you want. Also have a look under the settings just after it.


Hopefully that does the trick for you. I had a problem similar to it with another person a while back.


Maybe another one for trouble shooting with nvda.

Re: Excel 365: Adding Note on Cell

This sounds like the exact same issue I have with Excel 2016, not 365
using NVDA 2020.3. This was the first post I made to this list back in
December when I joined, and was recommended an alpha build to try to
fix the problem. As that was a few months ago, I would assume that
build has been integrated into 2020.4, though I don't know for sure.
This happens to me any time I use the context menu though. Usually in
my case, I use it to insert and delete cells, and just like the
original message, I have to alt+tab away from and back into the
spreadsheet to get NVDA to speak again. I'm not even sure if 2016 has
the note feature. Either way, I don't use it, but this is a problem
with any action involving the context menu.

pressed Enter on the New Note Add a note about this part of the

I would greatly appreciate any assistance.
