Can it auto read or needs text selecting manually first? 2 Years, 8 Months ago Karma: 0  
Hi There,

I'm wondering if the screen reader can automatically read text in view, or does it still need the text in question to be manually highlighted by the end user, then to press the > play button?

I ask, as I can't seem to find that option / understand it if it is in the plugins settings page. You can see my staging copy of my soon to launch site here;

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi,

it works in both ways, read the default text if nothing is selected or read the selected text if any.

The default text is auto selected using the CSS selectors parameter 'CSS Selector for main page area'

You find more detailed info in the PDF docs. Obviously if your template has no matches you won't get any text auto-read unless you select it explicitely.

Hi John,

Thanks for the reply. To be fair I'm still a little cofuffled regading the CSS selector's for my pages, I think I need to keep re-reading till I understand how I will get it working to read my menu items and main body of pages and footer.

I suddenly noticed my registration system was skewed, so I contacted the 3rd party provider of EasyProfile about it and they stated I should deal with the javascript issues that reg page is showing and it seems to relate to my Screenreader, could you take a look and advise please?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi,

i'm not sure about the problem with Easyprofile and what's skeded, however i found a javascript issue in the screenreader that prevents it to work.
To fix it, you should try to change the parameter 'Responsive Voice loading' from 'Remove server' to 'Local server' as was by default.
