find command


Ervin, Glenn
 

Hi,

I have never had luck on a web page with NVDA finding text.

I have tried control + F

Insert + F

And insert + control + F

And it never finds text that is on the web page.

Does anyone know what I’m doing wrong?

 

Thanks.

Hi


Is the insert key your modifier key or another like the caps lock or extended insert key? It would be that one you chose but you probably are using the right one. for example nvda key +ctrl + letter f key.

When you use insert control f, do you hear search dialog if you wait for speech after issuing the command?  That is what you should hear when the NVDA search dialog comes up.  I didn't see when I read your message the first time, that you have tried NVDA f so I gave that command in my first message.  Also, I find at times, and I don't know if this has been corrected in later versions than I am using, that if ai do a search, sometimes the search lands on a line that doesn't contain what I am searching for.  Repeating the search from where I am causes it to work properly.

Does NVDA have a repeate find key like F3 that Jaws uses?
I would prefer to not have to bring up the same search dialog.


Gene
 

The command is NVDA key f3.

Hi

Make sure you are in browse mode when you press NVDA+Ctrl+f and once search text is entered, press NVDA+f3 to move to next instance, NVDA+shift+F3 to move to previous instance.  You must be in browse mode for it to work properly.

 

Cheers

hi gene.
thanks so much for your helpful reply.
i did not know nvda f3 and i used nvda control f for finding items
again and again.
i really appreciate you God bless you!
moreover, which version of nvda do you have?
for me, nvda says find dialog, type the text you wish to find. edit blank.
also, i tried in focus mode and does not work for me.
instead, firefox find will be appeare and nvda says
toolbar: find in page edit blank.

That's what NVDA says.  But I didn't write everything.  The important thing is that NVDA find opens adialog.  If, for some reason, the dialog doesn't come up but some sort of find comes up, that’s very likely the find in your browser itself.  It won't work with NVDA.

I understand this is due to some page formatting issues that means that nvda thinks its on the right line, but is one out. I am not sure if its been fixed either.
