NVDA + ctrl + F to invoke the search dialogue for the web content, and, then remember it's just numpad up arrow, and, not in combination with the NVDA/insert key to read the current line.

Hi all,

Sorry for such a silly question.

How can I get nvda to search for a word etc on a webpage.  This is what I am currently doing.

1.       When on  a page where I am looking for the word access, for example

2.       I press control plus f.

3.       2.  Type in the word to find.

4.       3.  Hit enter.

5.       I always seem to have to press escape to check if I am on the line with the word in stead of pressing insert plus up arrow to read the current line.

6.       What m I doing wrong?

7.       Thanks for any help.
