can't use the letter K to get from link to link


Rosemarie Chavarria
 

Hi, everyone,

 

Recently I had to have my computer repaired. Yesterday I brought it home from the shop but found that now I can't get to the links list with NVDA f-7 or the letter K. Whoever repaired my computer must have changed some settings on it. I have the proper boxes checked but don't know why this isn't working. Here is what I was trying to do. I wanted to go to the Gmail site to find out if I had messages in my spam folder that aren't spam. When I hit K to go from link to link, all I get is K and nothing else. When I hit NVDA f-7 to go to the links list, I get a message asking if I want to turn on caret browsing. What could bee causing this?

 

Thanks for your help in advance.

In browse mode settings, tab a lot of times until you get to a check box that says, Trap all non-command gestures from reaching the document.
 
If it isn't checked, check it.  Of course, the tech may have done something else or corrupted or deleted something NVDA needs to perform these tasks properly, but this may be the solution.

Hi, Gene,

 

I tried checking that box but that didn't work. I'll probably have to have a sighted relative look at it and see what's going on. I wonder if the tech did delete something that NVDA needs.

 

Thank you for trying to help though.

Can you reinstall nvda from scratc h and see if that works? You might have to do that, but use narrator to navigate to the exe where the installer is and then run it probably in admin mode.

Take care

Aa, sounds like somehow your NVDA key got unmapped from the insert key. Go into the NVDA menu, then preferences, general, and make sure that the NVDA modifier for insert is checked. If you wind up having to check it, then be sure to save your configuration afterwards with NVDA+CTRL+C.

The weird thing is that it happens in internet explorer. Not only that but if I'm trying to read a title bar in IE, I get "0 T" instead of the insert key. I don't have that problem in microsoft edge.

If it's reading 0 t when you try to press NVDA+t then it sounds like numlock is on rather than off.  Try pressing num lock and see if it still happens.

Regards

Quentin.

What did you have repaired on the computer?  Did the tech do anything other than repair just what you asked?  Did he update anything or do any other work?
 
Also, and not necessarily related to the question, you might be able to reset, I'm not sure what the correct term is in Windows 10, Windows and tell the reset to leave all your programs.  But that would need discussion by others  because I don't know enough about that option to do more than suggest it as a possibility.

Dumb question, but, are you definitely focusing on the web page contents, and, can you tab around link to link?


If so, then try toggling between browse and focus mode to make sure it's in browse mode before you try the keystrokes?


But, the main thing is to firstly make sure you're working within the webpage contents?


And, yes, know this could just be me asking dumb questions...<smile>

Makes me think that maybe your input language has been set to some language other than US english, and, so, your keyboard is behaving oddly?

Aa, sounds like somehow your NVDA key got unmapped from the insert key. Go into the NVDA menu, then preferences, general, and make sure that the NVDA modifier for insert is checked. If you wind up having to check it, then be sure to save your configuration afterwards with NVDA+CTRL+C.

Subject: [nvda] can't use the letter K to get from link to link

 

Hi, everyone,

 

Recently I had to have my computer repaired. Yesterday I brought it home from the shop but found that now I can't get to the links list with NVDA f-7 or the letter K. Whoever repaired my computer must have changed some settings on it. I have the proper boxes checked but don't know why this isn't working. Here is what I was trying to do. I wanted to go to the Gmail site to find out if I had messages in my spam folder that aren't spam. When I hit K to go from link to link, all I get is K and nothing else. When I hit NVDA f-7 to go to the links list, I get a message asking if I want to turn on caret browsing. What could bee causing this?

 

Thanks for your help in advance.

How do I change that?

Makes me think that maybe your input language has been set to some language other than US english, and, so, your keyboard is behaving oddly?

I can tab from link to link so I'll try that first.

Dumb question, but, are you definitely focusing on the web page contents, and, can you tab around link to link?

 

If so, then try toggling between browse and focus mode to make sure it's in browse mode before you try the keystrokes?

 

But, the main thing is to firstly make sure you're working within the webpage contents?

 

And, yes, know this could just be me asking dumb questions...<smile>

Can you reinstall nvda from scratc h and see if that works? You might have to do that, but use narrator to navigate to the exe where the installer is and then run it probably in admin mode.

 

Take care

Hi, Gene,

 

I tried checking that box but that didn't work. I'll probably have to have a sighted relative look at it and see what's going on. I wonder if the tech did delete something that NVDA needs.

 

Thank you for trying to help though.

In browse mode settings, tab a lot of times until you get to a check box that says, Trap all non-command gestures from reaching the document.

 

If it isn't checked, check it.  Of course, the tech may have done something else or corrupted or deleted something NVDA needs to perform these tasks properly, but this may be the solution.

Really depends on operating system version, and, honestly, it was just a form of guess - if keyboard works fine in other contexts, then it's somewhat unlikely?

First thing is to just open something as simple as notepad, and, make sure all the normal key combinations work like they should - things like ' ", shift + number row keys, etc. - that's a common symptom if, for example, someone has switched over to UK english keyboard layout, but, is used to the US english layout.


Then, think the easiest way to double-check is to find the control panel, find language, and, tab around the window that should come up, until you find something like a list of languages installed, and, for example, mine is there set to English (South Africa). Keyboard layout: US. Available for download
Keyboard layout: US.


But, this might not be relevant at all, if the keyboard operates normally in other contexts, and, would then just suggest trying it out in a different browser to see if it still misbehaves, since that would then point out that it might indeed be an NVDA configuration issue?
