My hunch is that this issue is likely not new with the latest 4.1.2 release but I wanted to report
it anyway to see if others could duplicate this.
Here's my setup. This is a windows 7, 32-bit machine using NVDA 2013.2, which is the current
If I open a file in Writer, I am usually able to move through the document with arrow keys and
perform standard editing commands with appropriate accessibility feedback. Sometimes, when the
file is first opened I might have to press alt a couple of times to move focus to the menu bar and
back to the document, as I occasionally don't seem to get feedback when I open a document but this
is something I can work around.
Here is the real problem that I am seeing, or should I say hearing. If I use the page-up or
page-down keys to move through the document screen by screen, accessibility seems to be gone and I
can't use arrow keys to track where I am, as I receive little or no feedback. This also happens if
I hold the down arrow key down for a while, forcing the cursor to scroll through the document.
However, if I press control-end or control-home to go to the bottom or top of the document,
accessibility returns and I am able to track my progress in the document.
Interestingly, I don't see this happening with OpenOffice 4.0. With their version of writer,
pressing page-up or page-down reads the first line of the new screen, as you would expect.
