Re: JavaScript events related to Screen reader virtual cursor

No, that has nothing to do with whether the mouse moves.  Mouse tracking means that when you manually move the mouse, NVDA reads what is under the mouse when you move it to a new position.  That’s one way you can tell if the mouse moved where you want it to move.  I don’t know if announcements are always made, but its one way to check.
 
You must manually move the mouse.  The command is, using the default desktop layout, numpad insert numpad slash.  Hold numpad insert and press slash while doing so. 
 
There is no way to have the mouse move automatically.

Hi Jean,
 
Yes a sighted user would hover over the notification to keep it for longer.
 
I have set mouse tracking on, which I think is the way to tell NVDA to move mouse alongwith the browser mode focus. But mouse cursor does not move on majority of the places, that's what people tell me.
 
I have been using screen readers for little less than a year now, and probably do not know some commands and jargons very well, sorry for that.
 
Thanks,

No, there is no way to know about virtual cursor position, especially if the mouse is not following the browse cursor. If you use the focus cursor then it will get events, as well as if the mouse moves in or out of the elements .

If I am reading 50 pages document.

I read few pages. I wants to stop here. now how can I know, in which

page I am on?

2. In the same way can I know, line number?

3. If I press page up, my cursor will be in first line of previous page.

In the same way is there any trick, so that I can go to end of the same

4. Is there any shortcut key to read whole page?

Hi Steve

The numeric elements on a full size keyboard are referred to as NumPad, which is the separate keypad on the right hand side of the keyboard, and NumRow, which is the top row of the main body of keys  on the keyboard.  The commands you refer to use the NumRow keys, not the Function keys.  Use NVDA+NumRow2 to toggle speak typed characters and NVDA+NumRow 3 to toggle speak typed words.  Alternatively, use NVDA+Control+k to open the Keyboard Settings dialog, where you can set these and other keyboard related parameters.

 

Cheers

Chris

                Hi Chris. My NVDA screenreader insists on reading every character typed whereas I want to get it to say a word when the spacebar has been pressed. I tried insert key (on the number keypad) with f3 and though things had been changed ok. But unfortunately nothing seems to have changed and now if I try insert key with f3 nothing happens. Any help please? Cheers, Steve

Hi

In addition to what Luke described, pressing NumPad 5 3 times will spell out the current word, NumPad 8 3 times will spell out the current line, both phonetically.

Cheers

Chris

If your cursor is on the character, or the review cursor is, pressing the

numpad 2 key twice (desktop mode), will read the character phonetically.

 

If you want it to just read phonetically if you pause on a character while

using the arrow keys, like iOS Voiceover does in character mode, there is

an add-on for that, although I can't find it currently.
