Try the following in the browser when in focus and you know you are in the page.

The shortcut is nvda key + letter V

It will say some thing like use screen layout off this is what you want and will put the link on the same line as the text.

There is also a settings under the browse mode settings where this can be done either checked for on or unchecked for off.

See if that  does it.

Hi All.


It appears this list is not like some others I was on briefly.  I haven’t been flamed for asking a stupid question or been told to go look it up.


Here is my problem.  When I select help from the NVDA menu and then user guide my browser opens and I am on the table of contents. Then I down arrow to 5 navigating with NVDA.  When I press enter or space bar nothing happens.  I have to scroll the screen and click the mouse.  But that’s not all.  I can see that the screen changes but NVDA continues reading the table of contents.  I printed out the entire user guide and put it under my CCTV reader but that takes a lot of time.  I have tried the NVDA key + numpad keys and I can move to the desk top and back to the table of contents but I haven’t figured out how to move to the page which is displayed.  This effects other sites as well but this seems like the best example.  I am using windows 10 and Microsoft edge which should be the latest versions because automatic update is turned on.  Can someone get me out of this catch 22 situation.

Hi Max,


Welcome to the group.  If you can describe the problem you are having clearly, you will normally get a pretty helpful response from everyone here in the group.


Do you have a particular question now?  You mentioned seeing what kind of response this question got but I can't see one there.
