Re: NVDA and Google Chrome

First letter navigation is not ossible on the toolbar/bookmark list, but
you can create a folder in the toolbar and within that folder your links.
That wa you can use first letter navigation.

Chrome has imported my internet exlorer bookbarks. They appear in a
folder on the toolbar. When I open this folder with down arrow, I can
use first letter navigation.

I am using the latest version of NVDA. Getting to the bookmarks does work with hitting the alt key followed by spacebar then b. Still a little messy as it seems to open the bookmarks and put you on a random entry in the list of bookmarks and as you said first letter selection does not work. Doesn't seem that Google is great on their user interface.

When going to the bookmarks as described below NVDA repeats the name of
each bookmark twice.
