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.

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.

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.

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?

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?

Hi, Gene,



I tried checking that box but that didn't work. I'll probably have to have
a

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.

I seem to remember that you could at least try to repair IE during the windows 98 days; I say try because no matter how much you repaired it, the same crashes seem to happen as often as not.  In the latest and greatest windows editions though, this so-called privilege has been taken away, or at least I can't find the repair option anymore.

After I sent my message yesterday, you said the problem doesn't occur in Edge.  Before you do anything else, test to see if this is a problem specifically and only in Internet Explorer.  You said it doesn't occur in Edge.  Try Firefox or Chrome and see if the problem is present.  If it isn't, then this is evidently a problem with Internet Explorer being corrupted in some way.  At that point, you can ask here about how to repair and/or reinstall Internet Explorer and see if either solution helps.   

If you can't solve the problem in either of those two ways, and if it only affects Internet Explorer, then, with Chrome and Firefox as options and Edge becoming increasingly accessible and Internet Explorer becoming increasingly old, the next question is whether it's worth solving the problem.  People may have other solutions to try but a reset, or whatever the correct term of Windows is may be something to try.  I don't know if you should do the reset that removes everything or the one that keeps your files and programs on the machine.

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.

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.

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.

 

Rosemarie

After I sent my message yesterday, you said the problem doesn't occur in
Edge. Before you do anything else, test to see if this is a problem
specifically and only in Internet Explorer. You said it doesn't occur in
Edge. Try Firefox or Chrome and see if the problem is present. If it
isn't, then this is evidently a problem with Internet Explorer being
corrupted in some way. At that point, you can ask here about how to repair

and/or reinstall Internet Explorer and see if either solution helps.

If you can't solve the problem in either of those two ways, and if it only
affects Internet Explorer, then, with Chrome and Firefox as options and Edge

becoming increasingly accessible and Internet Explorer becoming increasingly

old, the next question is whether it's worth solving the problem. People
may have other solutions to try but a reset, or whatever the correct term of

Windows is may be something to try. I don't know if you should do the reset

that removes everything or the one that keeps your files and programs on the

machine.

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.

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.



Rosemarie

You need to create a rescue cd and then boot from it and you can supposedly repair most bits of windows, but as yet although i made a cd as it has no speech I've not had to try to use it.

I seem to remember that you could at least try to repair IE during the
windows 98 days; I say try because no matter how much you repaired it,
the same crashes seem to happen as often as not. In the latest and
greatest windows editions though, this so-called privilege has been
taken away, or at least I can't find the repair option anymore.

After I sent my message yesterday, you said the problem doesn't
occur in Edge. Before you do anything else, test to see if this
is a problem specifically and only in Internet Explorer. You said
it doesn't occur in Edge. Try Firefox or Chrome and see if the
problem is present. If it isn't, then this is evidently a problem
with Internet Explorer being corrupted in some way. At that
point, you can ask here about how to repair and/or reinstall
Internet Explorer and see if either solution helps.

If you can't solve the problem in either of those two ways, and if
it only affects Internet Explorer, then, with Chrome and Firefox
as options and Edge becoming increasingly accessible and Internet
Explorer becoming increasingly old, the next question is whether
it's worth solving the problem. People may have other solutions
to try but a reset, or whatever the correct term of Windows is may
be something to try. I don't know if you should do the reset that
removes everything or the one that keeps your files and programs
on the machine.

Hi, Gene,

I think he did a clean install of windows 10 so I lost all my
files except for the music I have on my external hard drive.

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.

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.

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.

Before you do that try a clean install of nvda first. This is a bit less drastic. It's like if I have a headache and the doctor chops off my head. Lol! Ok, bad comparison, but I hope that at least helps a bit.
