[access-uk] Re: TALX and continuous reading

Hi Sunil

I think if you look at the Talks manual you will find it says that you can't do 
a continuous read of a whole web page because of the fact that Talks, unlike 
desktop screenreaders, has to rely on the screen and can't access the 
underlying html or wml of the page, so I think you're out of luck for the time 
being.

  Hi again Steve, the TALX+dwn arrow works fine in a .txt document.  It doesn't 
work on a webpage where there are links, TALX seems to stop talking when it 
sees a link.  I was having problems with a Wikipedia page which is full of 
links.  Is there any way of telling TALX not to stop reading when it sees a 
link?

  Hi Sunil,

   

  This is simple, and I am surprised you didn't know it <Smile>.

   

  You just press Talks down arrow, and continuous reading will begin from the 
cursor position.

   

  All the best

  Hi, is it possible to make TALX read continuously without having to cursor 
down after each line of text has been read?  I'm really tempted to buy a 
Bluetooth keyboard to make emailing and surfing quicker but I'm just wondering 
if I'll still have to arrow through webpages line by line.cheers
