Reading WEB Pages


Steven Hicks
 

Hi all,

 

new install of Microsoft Windows 10 and NvDA.

When I open a web page, I cannot move around to read it with the arrow keys, it only responds to the tab key, any ideas why please?

 

Many thanks in anticipation,

Try the command NVDA key space.  See if you can move then.  If you can, change a setting in browse mode settings.
Open the browse mode dialog with control NVDA key b.
Tab to enable browse mode on page load or very similar wording.
If it isn't checked, check it with the space bar.
Press enter. 
If that setting is the problem, it should be solved.

Which browser are you using? Most browsers in their settings will have a check box to toggle using arrow key nav.
Always remember to include name(s) of browsers when asking these types of questions.

Also make sure that you're in browse mode with NVDA+Spacebar.

That is not intended for screen-reader users.  It is a way to allow sighted users to have a virtual cursor on the web page.

Thanks so much everyone, I will give that a try, not on the machine at the moment.

Not sure why but I also had that problem on 2 different computers and for that last 3 years of NVDA updates.

I fixed it by going into NVDA preferences, settings, advanced.

Then tab and hit space bar. Now you can tab to use UIA with edge and other chrome based browsers. you want to set that to no. Now every thing will show in the browser.

I don't think this is the issue here. If you go to desktop then toggle back does it work then? I've seen this effect on machines with slow processors or little ram. I guess the data to enable the browsing gets lost or something. Also always use the 64 bit version of a browser, as sometimes this seems to screw up accessibility. Until we know the browser involved, then we are just guessing.
