It may be used by many screen-readers in somewhat similar ways but
it can't be assumed. System Access doesn't use it in that way, nor
did Window-eyes. And in JAWS, it reads dialog boxes and perhaps
full screens, but in NVDA, it reads a lot of objects and thus may
read material JAWS won't read when the same command is used in the
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I haven't compared but it may be that if you are using the Touch
Cursor in JAWS, the command reads more as it does in NVDA.

insert+B is a standard screen reader command I do believe.
It works with JAWS, too.

That NVDA command insert + B (NVDA KEY + B) also has the
effect of reading the hidden items at times when the virtual

you get little or no feedback when trying to read a
relatively inaccessible screen such as in a dialogue box in
an off the shelf piece of software or sometimes some sort of
pop up on a web page, and when you switch to the object or
screen review and nothing is rendered, then press insert + B
and listen to the results. It may take a bit of time because
NVDA will read everything on the screen including the names
of tool bars, menu items system items such as
move/size/minimize/maximize and so on, but also many times
it will read what sighted people see on the screen that is
not apparent using other NVDA methods.
Also try the insert + R recognition feature with Windows OCR
and NVDA. This also works on some somewhat inaccessible

What I'm saying is that it is important to know the
command I gave, regardless of whatever issues you may

Yes, but I still have issues with NVDA that I need to
resume with tech support.

With NVDA, if you want to try to get more information
in a dialog, use the command NVDA key b. You may want
to try it as an experiment when copying files to this
card. If you use NVDA b, you may hear much more
information in a dialog.
