Re: browse mode

This comes from a forum so has no guarantee: 


You could just stop all the Sophos services if you're a local admin.

The following command would do it:

wmic service where "caption like '%Sophos%'" call stopservice

Note: Change stopservice to startservice to start them back up.

That may well be the problem. You may like to try an alternative or temporarily disable it, seeing if the problem is eleviated.

Are you running HitMan Alert or a Sofos Antivirus professional product? These can play havoc with keyboard mappings and NVDA.

The symptoms described don't match the problem.  Here is the original description:
when I press the H key for headings it says no checkboxes no edit box no link but it doesn’t say anything about headings
Nothing was stated about web pages not being able to be read.  Nothing was said about any occurrence of the word "unknown" being spoken. 
I have never seen this description of symptoms associated with the problem the corrective procedure is supposed to correct.  I see no reason to perform this corrective procedure until there is some indication that the problem has any of the symptoms associated with the problem this procedure is supposed to fix.

Subject: Re: [nvda] browse mode

the tool Brian is refering to if it is the same bug i think it might be
grab a copy of nvda 2018.2 rc2 and download it and install it to your
computer. Then while nvda is running use the nvda key + letter N to go
into the preferences of nvda then go to tools a sub menu will come off
it then locate the following menu called Run COM Registration Fixing
tool... then press the enter key.

I am not sure after that but after the process should register any
broken dlls that nvda needs to use.

let us know if it does the trick.

By the way after you press the enter key on it the menu e pointed you
towards i am not sure if there are any thing or screen after that to follow.
