New with NVDA need help

Mard, Elizabeth@DDS
 

Hello,

 

I am in the process of creating accessible documents and was given the NVDA application to test document accessibility. I have been using it on my lap top at work with great success, but due to C-19 I am using it at  home on my HP tablet and I cannot figure out how to get it to quit. The instructional guide book does not offer guidance regarding a tablet or at least I could not find it. Can anyone assist me with this?

 

Thank you,

from mack Elizabeth, open the menu , insert n, go to prefferances, settings, look at section 5, keyboard, and make sure everything is the way you want it.

To unload NVDA, if that's what you want to do, the command is NVDA key q, then enter.  Not just NVDA key q.

Do you need to just turn it off in the current session?
If insert+q, or capslock+q, or numpad insert+q (insert is the numpad zero key with numlock off) isn't working for you, you can:

Press insert+n, which opens the NVDA menu. Then move up once, and you should be on exit. Select that option.

If you can't get to the NVDA menu, selecting the NVDA item in the notifications area of the system tray, should get you the menu.

You can also kill NVDA in task switcher, like any other program.

If you are trying to keep NVDA from starting, you can, with NVDA running, press NVDA+n (NVDA key in that context is one of the insert keys I mentioned above), go to preferences, then to settings, then to general, and un-check the box for automatically start NVDA on login.
Do check the box for save settings on exit, if it isn't already, then press OK.
Then restart Windows, if you can't otherwise stop NVDA.

And, while there's nothing wrong with asking if you have trouble, all of this is in the NVDA manual that comes with the program.

And every NVDA user, particularly new ones (but it's incredibly handy for old-timers too, when looking for something you seldom use), should commit the following two commands to memory:

1. NVDA+N,H,Q - Open the NVDA Commands Quick Reference in your default web browser.

2. NVDA+N,H,U - Open the NVDA User Manual in your default web browser.

You can also find all the documentation under the NVDA install folder, documentation subfolder, language specific subfolder.  This is typically:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\NVDA\documentation\en"   for English Language versions.  Substitute fr for en for French, de for en for German, etc., etc., etc.

It's the HTML files that are found there that get opened via the commands noted above, but you can also open that folder and activate the HTML file (and they're clearly named by purpose) you need to view.
