Re: nvda key v

Did you check while in browse mode?  If a key only functions under certain conditions, you must be working under those conditions for the command to do what it is stated it will do and it is necessary to be under those conditions to have it described in input help.  You must be in browse mode.

Oh, my bad.
I just checked and indeed, with the NVDA help mode on, pressing NVDA+shift V doesn't report anything at all.
Then again it's described on the keystrokes reference as I just said.

Re: Please help me: About background color in word 2010 with NVDA.

 

I am using Word 2016, but I believe this remains exactly the same as it was in Word 2010.

What you wish to do can be easily done with a global find and replace, using some of the additional features.

First, you are going to want to set the highlight color that you want to use behind the keyword you are going to work with next. And I'm going to presume that one of the available highlighting colors is acceptable:
ALT+H, I - Open Highlight dialog, arrow around to get the highlight color you want behind your keyword.  Hit Enter to save that as the active highlight color.

Next, do a global find and replace for your Keyword:

1. ALT+H,R  Home Ribbon, Replace tab of the Find and Replace dialog.
2. I will presume you're trying to replace existing keywords with their equivalents with the bold formatting and background color.  So, I'm going to use "keyword" as my keyword in this example.  In both the find and replace boxes, enter keyword.
3. ALT+M to activate the More button. I recommend checking the "Find whole words only" checkbox so that you don't accidentally snag parts of words for a short keyword.  You can do this just by hitting the letter Y immediately after activating the More button.
4. ALT+O,F to open the Format Button, Font Option, and set your font as you want it, clearly with Bold chosen in this case.
5. ALT+O,H to state you want the keywords found highlighted as well.  The highlight color will be what you chose at the outset.
6. ALT+A, Replace All.  You should then get a dialog that comes up telling you how many replacements were made.

If you need custom shading behind each things become a bit more difficult, but I won't cross that bridge yet.

I don't know if in 2010 is the same, but in 2019 befor the controls for highlight and color, you have a control where you can select some background color...

Dear All,
I have a question about Microsoft word 2010 with NVDA and here is my situation.
- I'm a freelance content writer and today I got a request regarding keywords in my content.
- They want the letter's color of all keywords to be in black like all the words in document.
the exceptional things is :
- the keyword must be bold, this is not my problem because just CTRL + b can do it for me.
- they want the background color to be changed in the diffent color depending on each keywords while the letter color is still the same as whole document.
Previously I select the keyword and use the different color which I can do from the color in Font Style menu. So, the color is different e.g. keyword is green but other is black. That is not the thing they want for this case.
 How can I do to change only the background color at the position of the keyword while anything else is the same?
Sorry for my English, but please help me.
Thank you.

Hi


no |All the pages i use it on it works great. Are you using a stable version of nvda or a snap shot?


Some times when you go into a page is it defaulting to a form field? If so just use the nvda key + space bar to get out of it then use the find command in browse mode.


I have been caught out that way when i do not hear it say some times which mode it is in.

Re: nvda key v

Nimer Jaber
 

If you are focused on a link, pressing enter will activatie that link. if there are multiple links on a line, or if the link is in the middle of a line, simply pressing down arrow probably will not place focus on that link, so you will have to put focus to the link before trying to activate it. I wouldn't say that this changes the behavior of links, only your behavior of how you interact and navigate the web page.

thanks.

Hi Troy,

Much of it should still be the same, but there have been changes in the last couple of years.  From memory a one of the biggest was the change to the way the review cursor copying works (NVDA+f9 to start marking, then NVDA+f10 TWICE to select and then copy) - I also took the opportunity when I updated that, to expand the whole review cursor section as well.  In the most recent update, I also changed the references to the NVDA settings to refer to the single settings dialog with categories, rather than the many individual dialogs, which we had up until recently.

Can you still use it?  Absolutely.  You might find that a command has changed here and there, so if something doesn't work exactly as the book says it should then do feel free to check with me (it could be an error in the book, and it might be one I haven't found yet) and I can get you on the right path.

Kind regards
