A long talking of Nvda on web


Jarek.Krcmar
 

Hello everyone,
I'd like to get rid of the verbosity of Nvda on the web.
Nvda tells me:
Heading 1, 2, rows 5 columns.
That seems very lengthy.
Can Nvda be set up to be less talkative?

Please give an example of a URL where you have this problem, so we know what
NVDA is telling you about.

Otherwise we can only guess, which may not be helpful...

Jarek,

Yep. Try pressing CTRL+NVDA+D and check/uncheck things there accordingly.

Please press nvda-n - in the nvda menus choose preferences - then settings -
then arrow down to browser - you can check/uncheck - meaning turn on and off
several settings that can help. For example: I have tables turned off.
Hope this helps.

Hello,

I cannot find the preferences.

I pressed the keys Ctrl+Nvda+S, and there is a formating of documents. There I unchecked anouncing the columns.

The command is NVDA control d for document formatting.

I don't know what you intended to type.  You must have used control NVDA d, not s, as you write.  If you had used s, you would have opened the synthesizer settings, which you clearly didn't. 
 
Control NVDA d is a shortcut.  It allows you to open document formatting, without opening the NVDA menu, then preferences, then find document formatting starting in the NVdA menu.  I'll let others describe just how you get into document formatting.  I'm not familiar with the newer interface.  But you won't find anything more if you do that.  You are already in document formatting with control NVDA d.  The menu method gets you to exactly the same place.
 
However, using the NVDA menu and preferences in that menu are important to know about so you can look through options in NVDA.  The shortcuts we are discussing are fine for getting to a part of settings immediately, but they don't subvstitute for knowing the basic structure of NVDA.

It depends on the website. But in addition to what others have told you, you can try turning off layout tables (nvda+control+b, uncheck the box).

Ok, here's how you can access the Document Formating Settings the hard way, so to speak :)
  1. Open NVDA Menu (NVDA+N).
  2. Down arrow to settings. Actually, probably you won't need to down arrow because this will be the very first option so if I'm right, just press enter here.
  3. Now down arrow until Document Formating.
You can also use first letter navigation which will make your life easier.

On a related note:
Is there a section of the NVDA Userguide or Keycommands telling about these shortcuts to the NVDA Settings? It's something really important to know and I couldn't find it anywhere.

Hi


To get to document formatting quickly use the nvda key + ctrl key + the letter D this will bring up the document formatting dialogue where you can make changes



Depending which menu you might want to go into  change the last letter.


I usually only say do the general settings so would replace the D with a G.


the keyboard with a k



browse mode with a B

the synth settings with a S

The voice settings with a V

The keyboard with a K


The mouse settings with a M


There are probably more but depends what you want.


I think on some of them you can also asign as a gesture.
