Thanks Rick,

Sounds very interesting. I'll pass it on to Federico.

I'll let ou know if he manages to do what he needs to do with comments.

Hello Sylvie and Ollie:

I am not sure why moving to the next and previous comments shortcut keys do
not work. I am running the latest desktop version of Word in Office 365. One
way to find out the actual shortcut key is by navigating the ribbon. Press
Alt+R. This will place you in the Review tab of the ribbon, where the
commenting feature resides. Now press Ctrl+right arrow until you hear
comments grouping. On my version of Word, I needed to press it 5 times. Once
there, use the Tab key until you hear previous button. NVDA should also tell
you the shortcut key. Pressing Tab one more time should get you to the Next
button where again, NVDA should let you know the shortcut. On my version of
Word, there are 4 buttons in the comments group of the Review tab. The first
is to insert a comment, the second is to delete a comment, the third is to
move to the previous comment and the fourth is to move to the next comment.

Navigating the ribbon is a great way to learn shortcut key combinations for
future reference.

Hello Sylvie and Rick,

As a matter of fact it didn't work for him either. I don't know how he
settled the issue; maybe he decided to use footnotes instead of comments, as
he mentioned that to me over the phone.

Thanks to both of you.

Hello Rick, Ollie and all,

The shortcut to go to next and previous comment does not work here.

May be it is different from one language to the other.

I hope it worked for your friend Ollie

Hello Sylvie and Ollie:

The method described by Sylvie will find more than comments if
present in a document. For example, if track changes was used to
record changes made to a document, the A key while in browse mode
will also move to those as well as comments. Furthermore, when using
the A key in browse mode, it will take you to the place in the
document where the selected text associated with the comment is, but
will not place you in the actual comment for editing, deleting or

Word has built-in keystrokes for navigating comments in a document
which will work with any screen reader. Alt+N will move to the next
comment while Alt+V will move you to a previous comment. When using
these commands, you are actually placed in the comment and can
perform the keystrokes described by Silvie to respond to or delete a

Hello again Ollie,
If you enable the browsing mode in word with Nvda+spacebar, you can
jump to one comment/annotation by pressing a.
When you are on the comment you want to see, right click with the
appropriate key or shift+f10 and use the down and up arrow keys. You
will find a menu entry to modify, answer, delete or mark the comment
as closed.
You can also display the list of comments in pressing nvda+F7, you
can choose to display the list of annotations and browse through the
different comments.
If you don't know the keystroke, when NVDA says "has a comment", you
can have it read in pressing nvda+alt+C.

    Hello again Sylvie,

    My friend says to thank you very much for your help, and has
    another related question:

    How can he return to a comment after exiting it with Esc?

    Thanks again, also on his behalf.

                Hello all,

                A friend of mine is a teacher. His students do their
                homework in Word, and he needs to corect them.

                He'd like to insert comments to explain his
                corrections, and has found the keyboard shortcut to
                so, but doesn't know how to return to the main text.

                Would  anyone know if there's a shortcut to exit the
                comment and return to the place in the text where he
                left off?

                Thanks in advance; I don't have Word installed, so I
                can't help him.
