    How to Read by Sentence in Narrator in Windows 10


    Narrator is a screen-reading app built into Windows 10.

    Narrator lets you use your PC without a display or mouse to complete common tasks if youre blind or have low vision. It reads and interacts with things on the screen, like text and buttons. Use Narrator to read and write email, browse the internet, and work with documents.

    Starting with Windows 10 build 18262, you can now read next, current and previous sentences in Narrator. Read by sentence is available with the keyboard and with touch. Sentence is also now a new Narrator view.

    *note Move by sentence doesnt yet work for Braille.

    This tutorial will show you how to read next, current and previous sentences in Narrator in Windows 10.


    CONTENTS:




    OPTION ONE [/i] Read by Sentence in Narrator

    • Caps + Ctrl + M to Read previous sentence




    OPTION TWO [/i] Read by Sentence using Narrator View

    *note The different views in Narrator include items, characters, words, lines, sentences, paragraphs, headings, links, form fields, tables, landmarks, and suggestions.
    1. Turn on Narrator.

    2. Press the Caps + Page Up or Caps + Page Down keys until you hear sentences to change to that view.

    3. You can now click/tap on a sentence to have it read by Narrator. You can also navigate with Caps + Left arrow for move by previous sentence and Caps + Right arrow for move by next sentence.

    That's it,
    Shawn

    Narrator stops reading 1/4 down the page

    Thank you for your response.

    I understand narrator has limited functionality. However, I regularly used narrator for the same purpose prior to upgrading to Windows 10.

    I tried uninstalling and re-installing Adobe Digital Editions as suggested. Narrator still will not read the whole document.

    Any other suggestions before I downgrade back to Windows 8?

    Thank you

  6. How to make Narrator read ENTIRE Word Document (Windows 10)?

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft community.

    We understand your concern and will certainly assist you to fix it.

    Narrator reads what is displayed on the screen, including the contents of the active window, menu options, or text that has been typed. Narrator is designed to work with Notepad, WordPad, Control Panel programs, Internet Explorer, the Windows desktop,
    and some parts of Windows Setup, and may not read words aloud correctly in other programs.

    Please try to disable and enable narrator and check if it helps:

    1. The quickest way of getting into the Settings in Windows 10 is from everyone’s favorite, Start Menu. When you make a click on Start Menu, you will notice Settings listed there. Click on it and your Settings window will be opened.
    2. As you have entered the Settings, you see many options listed. Find out Ease of Access and click on it.
    3. The Ease of Access will again list you many options under it. And by default Narrator is selected at the lists on the top.
    4. Select the option that allows you to use the slider and switch off the Narrator and again switch on.

    Also, refer the below link for more information:

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows/hear-text-read-aloud-narrator#1TC=windows-8

    Note: Applies to Windows 10 also.

    Please let us know if the issue got resolved or you need any further assistance.
