Searching for Colored Text
kelby carlson <kelbycarlson@...>
JAWS has a feature where you can get it to skim to parts of documents
where the text is colored or in a certain font/style. Can NVDA do
this? The "skim" feature during say all is much more limited and just
means the speech isn't interrupted.
I do not know if the github entries referenced here: http://nabble.nvda-project.org/NVDA-Does-NVDA-read-highlighted-text-td38134.html
will prove helpful, but that topic was posted elsewhere back in 2015 and the ticket(s) have to do with background/foreground color of text.
I know that it's possible to have NVDA tell you what the background color is on the text you are currently viewing is, but I'll be darned if I can remember how to do it.

Kelby, Jaws does have a scripting feature wherein colors can be
searched for. Having said that, & having worked w/it for many years,
ie, nearly 25, I can tell you that the reliability of the feature can
be pretty iffy at best.
I don't know how true these rumors are, though I suspect they do have
veracity, & that is that the mirror display driver that Jaws has will,
at some point in the future, no longer be permitted by Microsoft,
simply because of the security holes such a driver opens up. It's not
something we like to talk about on public lists, for very obvious
reasons, as we're not wont to give the sickos out there, of whom there
are many, any amunition, but let's just say it's a disaster waiting to
happen, &, in this case, it's 1 of the few areas where the relative
smallness & perceived nonprofitability of our population has worked in
our favor. If that happens, then at least some of the methodologies
that Jaws uses to search for colors will also disappear.
