Jean, First of all, I must have copied this tutorial "getting started with NVDA" from the web and pasted into Wordpad. I believe it was to help window eyes users transition into

could i ask in what program are you trying to do it in?
On a desktop computer to go into screen review is the nvda key + 7 on the numeric keypad.
The commands given are review text or text review commands you can use with screen review.
Depending what you are trying to do you may need to route the mouse to that position? or activate a button with a object navigation command.
Make sure also your num lock key is turned off.
the other thing to is on the numeric keypad we can use screen review press the nvda key + 7 to go into that mode.
Using the nvda key + 1 on the numeric keypad will take you down the modes like document review I think it is called and object navigation.
the document review mode may only show in some applications. if it can.
using the nvda key + 7 will take you back through the modes if there this may change in each application to what it reveals.

When I hit numpad 8 to read current line, it reads a completely different line.  Same with previous line, word or character ETC. The tutorial was called getting started with NVDA.

What do you mean when you say they don't work?  Assuming the commands are doing something, what are they doing?

I've been trying to follow the following directions, but these
directions are not working for me. I made sure I was in desktop layout.
It was a brief tutorial by Joseph Lee and I had copied it to wordpad and
was trying to use the numpad keys to read it.

Screen review commands
Note the pattern as I give these commands:
Read previous line, numpad 7.
Read current line, numpad 8.
Read next line, numpad nine.
You move in screen review to the previous or next line when you issue
those commands. You can keep moving and reading until you get to the top
or bottom of the screen.
Read previous word, numpad 4.
Read current word, numpad 5.
Read next word, numpad 6.
Read previous character, numpad 1.
Read current character, numpad 2.
Read next character, numpad 3.
Note the pattern:

Thanks for any suggestions.
