Hi Max,

Welcome to the group.  If you can describe the problem you are having clearly, you will normally get a pretty helpful response from everyone here in the group.

Do you have a particular question now?  You mentioned seeing what kind of response this question got but I can't see one there.

Regards

Quentin.

Hi All.

 

It appears this list is not like some others I was on briefly.  I haven’t been flamed for asking a stupid question or been told to go look it up.

 

Here is my problem.  When I select help from the NVDA menu and then user guide my browser opens and I am on the table of contents. Then I down arrow to 5 navigating with NVDA.  When I press enter or space bar nothing happens.  I have to scroll the screen and click the mouse.  But that’s not all.  I can see that the screen changes but NVDA continues reading the table of contents.  I printed out the entire user guide and put it under my CCTV reader but that takes a lot of time.  I have tried the NVDA key + numpad keys and I can move to the desk top and back to the table of contents but I haven’t figured out how to move to the page which is displayed.  This effects other sites as well but this seems like the best example.  I am using windows 10 and Microsoft edge which should be the latest versions because automatic update is turned on.  Can someone get me out of this catch 22 situation. 

 

 

73 (Regards).

Hi Max. If you not aware already I’d learn using your NVDA hotkeys for browsing on the web. If you are also a JAWS user H for switching to different headings is one key to get you started. Now you should be able to press enter on the links within the user manual. I’ve done this successfully with Edge and Firefox. Try that out and let me know how it goes.

I'm not sure what is causing the problem.  Which browser are you using?  It sounds, from what you describe, that the browser is moving to where it should be but the NVDA browse mode buffer isn't updated. 
 
One way to work around the probem is the following:
Move to the item in the table of contents you want to read.
Select the title of the item, you can select the whole line, which includes its number in the outline, and copy it to the clipboard.
For example:
4.1. Launching NVDA
Open the NVDA find dialog, used when in browse mode.  The command is insert control f.  You can use either insert.
Paste the line into the search field and press enter.  You should be moved to that part of the guide.
You can save the guide in whatever formats your browser offers and use find in whatever you are using to read the document in the same way.

As long as you press enter on the link (and not the bullet beside it),
you should be moved to that section. That doesn't work in Edge.
Switch to another browser and you should be fine.
Alternatively, navigate by headings until you find the part of the user
guide you want.

If you are saying that it is necessary to use h to move by heading before the table of contents links work, then that is a problem with the coding of links in the Table of Contents that needs to be investigated.  Such links, that take the user to the text desired, shouldn't require any certain procedure to be executed before pressing enter on them will work.  Are you saying that the links don't work if you open the page and tab or read or down arrow to the link?  Are you saying a move by heading command needs to be issued first?  and in which sscreen-reader?  H is move by heading in both JAWS and NVDA.

Try firefox and see if thatworks. Also try reinstalling nvda if you can. It seems like sometign somewhare is broken. I don't use edge for this reason. Firefox and chrome just tend to work better.

I see that you are using Edge so my question about the browser being used isn't necessary to answer and others have dealt with my questions about whether this is a general probem or not.  However, my suggestion of how to move using the find command may be useful at some time so even if you generally don't need it, it may be useful on some page at some time in the future.  and it may be useful in other contexts.  For example, I like to save PDF documents as text files and read them in Notepad.  In such a case, using a line in a table of contents, or part of a line, the whole line may not be suitable for some reason, is often a good way to find something quickly.

Hello Max:

 

The table of contents is a hierarchal bulleted list. Unfortunately, the bullets are not part of the links, so when you up and down arrow (or use the I key for list navigation), you are most likely on the bullet and not on the link. Hence, hitting Enter or the spacebar will have no effect. You can check this by:

  • Navigate to the table of contents line that you would like to jump to.
  • Press the tab key (or the right arrow key twice) to move to the actual chapter link and you may hear “link” followed by the starting number of the section you want to jump to.
  • At this point, if you press the left arrow, you should hear “out of link, space” and pressing let arrow again will land you on the bullet (which will vary based upon the indentation level).

A better way to navigate the table of contents line by line is by using the tab key, which will make sure you land on links and not bullets.

 

I am not sure why bullets are shown in the table of contents. Since HTML allows list attributes that can hide the bullets, maybe this could be considered as an improvement next time the help document is updated.

Hi All.

 

It appears this list is not like some others I was on briefly.  I haven’t been flamed for asking a stupid question or been told to go look it up.

 

Here is my problem.  When I select help from the NVDA menu and then user guide my browser opens and I am on the table of contents. Then I down arrow to 5 navigating with NVDA.  When I press enter or space bar nothing happens.  I have to scroll the screen and click the mouse.  But that’s not all.  I can see that the screen changes but NVDA continues reading the table of contents.  I printed out the entire user guide and put it under my CCTV reader but that takes a lot of time.  I have tried the NVDA key + numpad keys and I can move to the desk top and back to the table of contents but I haven’t figured out how to move to the page which is displayed.  This effects other sites as well but this seems like the best example.  I am using windows 10 and Microsoft edge which should be the latest versions because automatic update is turned on.  Can someone get me out of this catch 22 situation. 

 

 

73 (Regards).

Hi Max,

 

Welcome to the group.  If you can describe the problem you are having clearly, you will normally get a pretty helpful response from everyone here in the group.

 

Do you have a particular question now?  You mentioned seeing what kind of response this question got but I can't see one there.

 

Regards

 

Quentin.

Hi


Try the following in the browser when in focus and you know you are in the page.


The shortcut is nvda key + letter V


It will say some thing like use screen layout off this is what you want and will put the link on the same line as the text.


There is also a settings under the browse mode settings where this can be done either checked for on or unchecked for off.


See if that  does it.

That is a setting I recommend against using unless you are working with specific kinds of sites such as message boards.  I consider it to generally be desirable to have each link on a separate page, in other words, having use screen layout turned off.  There are all sorts of ways to get to the link such as tabbing or shift tabbing, but being on the link is not the problem.  the original message says that Max can see the text change but the screen-reader keeps reading the table of contents.  the link has been activated.  It appears that the problem is how the Edge browser works with this page.  So if that is the case, people can use my method or they can use a different browser.

Hi Gene


Use screen layout does not work in microsoft edge here I am using windows 10 version 1809 but does on other browsers if needed. I always have mine turned off.


The other way i would do it is either the elements list which works in the edge browser or maybe use the find command. I will make edge teh default browser and see if i can get it to do the same.
