May I ask what is the difficulty using the search facility built into Word?

Are you in Browse mode or focus mode when you press NVDA+control+f?

(Browse mode, for reading, can use single letter navigation keys and NVDA+f7 elements list like on the web.  Focus mode,you can write text - Word is normally in focus mode).

NVDA+control+f only works in Browse mode, so you need to press NVDA+spacebar in Word to switch to browse mode, but otherwise, it may provide a simpler "find" interface for some than particularly the task panes in the newer versions of Word.

Regards

Quentin.

The NVDA Find command only works in Browse mode, as stated in the user
guide. Press NVDA+Space, then NVDA+Control+F to use the NVDA Find
dialog in Word.

here are some tips to work with the find functionality of word 2010:

- hit ctrl + f to go to the search field
- enter the term you wish to search for, and hit enter
- use f6 (several times, maybe 3) to get back to the document, where the
first result is focused
- to go to next / previous search result: hit f6, the focus will jump to
the navigation toolbar, from there click previous / next search result
- again, use f6, several times, as needed, to get back to the document
where the search result is focused


I don't know the shortcuts for previous / next search result, sorry!
hope that helps!

Hi


I just tried it in microsoft word 2010 and if I done the following while in focus mode with the nvda search feature, it would bring up a search box but when i typed in what I wanted then tabed to search it would not go any where.


But now if you do the same to do a search with nvda but this time in browse mode you could type in a search  then it would find it no worries.


That was using the nvda find command.


I can not remember if before I could do it in focus mode?

By the way it was with a docx file.

Re: Windows 10 issues

Chris Mullins
 

Hi

I agree there is some confusion with the Settings window but I’m not sure if it’s a bug or not.  I’ve not had the Anniversary update yet so when I press Windows+i I land in the list of Settings categories on ‘System, which is reported as not selected.  When I press enter on ‘System’, the subsequent page displayed has a list of System sub-categories, all of which are reported as not selected when they are spoken by NVDA but nevertheless, invoke details of the relevant sub-category when enter is pressed. The same is true for the list of items I have configured for my start menu.  The question is, does a list item become ‘selected’ when it gets focus as in previous Windows versions or is it different for Windows 10?

 

Cheers

Chris

Hi,

Since I started using NVDA on my new laptop, I noticed a few issues.

The first issue is, despite the fact that NVDA can now read mail contents in the Mail app, I can't seem to get NVDA to read the mail content without object navigation.

The second issue is, in the Settings app, when I open a setting, I won't know whether a category is selected because NVDA won't say 'selected'. On my Surface 3 NVDA worked just fine in the Settings app.

I tried restarting with add ons disabled, still the same issue.

Any help in getting NVDA to work properly with the mMai and Settings app? Also on the other note, the issue with the calculator app is still not resolved.

Re: Temporarily disabling AVG protection Correction

Chris Mullins
 

Gene is quite right The first keypress should be NVDA+Numpad / however the second keypress should not be Numpad / but Numpad * to invoke the Context menu. Apologies for the incorrect post.

 

The corrected steps are:

 

  1. Press Windows+b to move to the system tray.

2Press enter on the Notifications chevron button.

3 Use arrow keys to scroll the overflow notifications list until you locate the AVG anti-virus button.

4 Press NVDA+numpad / to move mouse focus to the AVG button

5 Press Numpad * to activate the AVG context menu (Note: i can’t get the Applications key to invoke the AVG context menu, hence the 2 step process)

6. ‘Temporarily disable AVG protection’ appears in the Context menu list.

 

When you activate the disable option, a dialog appears with various warnings about removeing protection and instructions about re-enabling it.  You can also set a timer to automatically re-enable protection after a certain time has elapsed.

 

HTH

All references to numpad 8 should be changed to numpad slash.  So to move mouse focus to the button, the command is numpad insert numpad slash.  To left click the mouse, the command is numpad slash

I have been having some issues with portable versions of the latest nvda today. On a couple of xp machines the good old file that scans things in MSSE has become hyper active during me trying to run and extract the new version over old ones and used up all the processor time making it just hang with 80 percent of power in msse. I have with some patience managed to get task manager going first and stopping the process makes nvda get extracted I have to point out here that at no time does msse complain about nvda, it just seems to be hogging processor time when, presumably scanning the files as they get extracted into the folder.
Most odd.
I will look tomorrow to see if older versions of nvda cause it, Isuspect that the recent update of msse has done this.
