NVDA object navigation


Lexi
 

Hello everyone, I'm looking to use NVDA's OCR feature more. Can someone please explain to me how to use the NVDA object navigation? I sometimes need to click on things but I can't interact with the text after I OCR it. Thank you all in advance.--
Please be blessed and be safe. Thank you,
Lexi


 

Lexi,

Take a look at the following topic in the archive (which I so happen to have started):

NVDA OCR - Can you save the text result somehow?

I think it may answer at least some of your questions.

Hi Lexi, So as far as object navigation goes, at least in laptop layout, you press NVDA+Contro+left/right arrow to move between objects, and NVDA+Control+up/down arrow to move between groups of objects. Once you've located the object you want to click on, press NVDA+shift+backspace to move the system focus to the object you want to click on. As far as OCR is concerned, that's a different feature entirely. Put your cursor on the image you want to recognize and press NVDA+r. Hope this helps.

Also, section 5.4 of the NVDA user’s  guide documents the object navigation feature.

This is the section number in NVDA 2021.3 RC 1.

To quickly open the manual you can press

Insert+N, H for Help followed by the enter key.

Actually it’s nvda shift  left right not control. Nvda control left right can be used to move you between words of a particular object as far as I’ve found.

Thank you, that made sense. I appreciate everyone's help. Another question I have is, how do I move the cursor in NVDA? Do I have to use the mouse?

If you mean the mouse, which JAWS refers to as the JAWS cursor, you move object navigation to where you want it to be.  If you are using the desktop keyboard layout, you then move the mouse by using the command NVDA key numpad slash.  You click it with numpad slash, as you do in JAWS.

Not at all. consult the documentations for more on the keyboard shortcuts you can use. There are a lot, some of which I don’t even  use and more of them I forget as I don’t use them.
