Re: Using Nvda so I get the entire screen

May it be changed?
I'd believe so.
However, be warned that it's not advised to change default keystrokes, for many reasons. One of them is that if you get used to your own keystroke for a command, when you have to work with another computer, of course said keystroke will be different and you'll be at the risk of don't remembering it.

Now, here are the steps if you still want to change something:
If you go to NVDA Menu > Preferences > Input Gestures (maybe this latter don't have this exact name, but it's something close to it) you can set any keystroke according with your preferences.
You'll have a filter where you can type in something that is a part of the command name or its description.
When you've finished typing, hit tab and you'll be presented with the results for what you've typed. You can then press up/down arrows to move through the options.
When you find the result you want, hit tab until "add" and press spacebar.
Just after pressing spacebar on the "add" button, enter with your new keystroke for this command.
Then you'll have to choose if this command will be valid for the laptop or desktop layout, or even both.
When you've finished with it, OK to exit this dialog.
That's it :)

Can you not just hit windows b and look for the dropbox section? I know it's not a 100 percent work around, but for now try this. I never have used the add on, as so far DB is working fine.

hope that helps

Re: cannot download weather plus and when I type, keys do not speak

 

Hi,
First let me say that two different questions as it looks like it's the case here, would be better suited in different threads. Of course, that's my opinion and the final decision is still yours :)

Now:
cannot download weather plus; when I try, I am taken back to the desktop.
I'm not sure of what you are using for downloading it.
At any rate, as far as I know, this add-on is being rewritten, which means you would find a better and more stable version of it if you wait for a while.

Also, when I type, the keys do not speak; meaning they remain silent.
Try pressing NVDA key+F2, NVDA being the insert/caps lock key, according on what you've set it up.
If it solves your problem, don't forget to save the change. To do it, press CTRL+NVDA+C.

Hth

True what Mr. Vogel said. However, Farhan, please ensure that all

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.
