#821 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Some more key commands needed when in flat review mode

Reported by: msuch Owned by: mdcurran
Milestone: 2010.2 Component: Display model
Keywords: flat review key commands Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


Some users who played with the flat reveiw navigation suggested te following:
It would be nice if some navigation would be added especially for this mode:
extendedPrior: jump to top of screen
extendedNext: jump to bottom of screen
extendedHome: get to beginning of current line
extendedEnd: get to end of current line.
These keys would act this way when in flat review, but would act normally in other modes.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Flat review is simply an extension of our current review functionality. NVDA never overrides system cursor keys for review.

I had also significant number of students who found review controls not very intuitive. I know that system with 3*3 keys is here from the begining of nvda but from my point of view and experiences this kind of control is really a complication for many users. Is it really a problem to add few new keystrokes and use arrows and pgup,pgdn,home,end in combination with some modifiers to work with review functionality?

The current system should not be too difficult to explain, although we could possibly do a better job of that in the user guide. Nevertheless, this should be discussed in #804. Something like this cannot be done for 2010.2, as it requires too many core code changes and will delay the release unacceptably.

In fact, NVDA currently supports all of listed functionality, though keybindings are different. Use shift+numpad7 to jump to the top of the review text, shift+numpad9 to jump to the bottom, shift+numpad1 to move to the start of line and shift+numpad3 to move to the end of line.
