Braille display cursor routing


Jason White
 

Testing with NVDA 2017.2, I noticed that if I press a routing button on a
braille display in Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Word, the cursor is shown
below the character next to the routing button (i.e., dots 7-8 are displayed) but it turns out that the cursor has not moved at all from its prior location.

In this case, I tested with a Freedom Scientific Focus 40 Blue display, Grade
II contracted braille enabled, with computer braille for the word under the
cursor.

Is this a known issue, or can others on the list reproduce it?

Hi Jason,

If you open NVDA's Braille settings:

1. Press NVDA+n (your NVDA key should be either INSERT or CAPS LOCK)
2. Press P for preferences
3. Press R for Braille (or down arrow to "Braille Settings" and press ENTER).

There is an option in there "Braille tethered to".  It sounds like yours is tethered to "Review".  If you change that to "Focus", it will move the text cursor as you expect.

You can also press NVDA+control+t to toggle this.  Possibly you accidentally pressed this when intending to read the title bar of a window?

Regards

Quentin.

Thank you, and my apologies - I overlooked that setting, which must have been
changed at some point for some reason. The method you describe below worked as
advertised.

No problem at all, easy to do!  I'm glad it was a nice easy fix :)

Hello there,


You can toggle this setting with the key combination


NVDA + Ctrl + t.


I use it a lot, because keeping the cursor tethered to Review doesn't show a lot of stuff on the left of the braille display. On the other hand, when I do translations and need to use cursor routing a lot, I need the cursor to be tied to Focus.


hth, ciao,

Ollie
