Creating a New Document with NVDA G-docs

David Russell
 

Hello NVDA Group,

I am stymied on what hot key combination to use that will allow me to
create a blank document using NVDA on G-docs.

Screen reader support is enabled.

When I find the line that says, "Click + to create new document," A
form field opens if I press NVDA key (insert) and spacebar at the same
time. I am not sure what this field allows.

If I try to copy the document from clipboard, nothing indicates it pasted.

Any tips would be helpful as all the tutorials seem to start with how
to open a doc not create a doc. Thanks.

You might want to have a cruise through the training modules from AFB here:  https://www.afb.org/blindness-and-low-vision/using-technology/assistive-technology-videos/using-google-docs-and-drive

They used NVDA and Firefox, but I would imagine it would be very similar with any browser, just taking into account any browser specific command differences.

I think this works only in chrome, but putting doc.new in the address field will open a google doc.  This also works with sheets.new, slides.new as well.

Christopher,

            After navigating to docs.google.com in Firefox, I tried entering doc.new in the Firefox address bar, and it works precisely as you describe.  This doesn't appear to be browser specific.

I am trying to figure out how this response is connected to "Creating a New Document with NVDA & G-Docs."   I suspect it was accidentally misdirected to the wrong topic.

The doc.new approach does not require you to be in Google Docs before invoking it.  I"m glad it works in Firefox as well.

Brian, Kerryn is referring to the "Download this tutorial as an MP3 audio file" link for each of the AFB training modules your referred to. Those links do not work, but the video in the YouTube frame does.
