I am using a Microsoft surface go. Got it a month ago. I'll try holding down
the power button. Could this problem have anything to do with the fact that
in nvda settings I checked the box that said guess the position of objects
when unavailable? I really hope I didn't break my machine by mistake. I
don't know why, but I feel so mad that I suck at using nvda. I probably did

Don't be too discouraged, breaking things is quite normal.
If this is a tablet with a separate keyboard, maybe Bluetooth was turned
off, the batteries died or the keyboard was turned off. Tab should at least
do something, or pressing any other key should interrupt NVDA from speaking.
If nothing happens even after reboot, we can figure it out from there.
Here's how to power off your tablet.
1. Try pressing the power button. If that doesn't start the process, maybe
things aren't set up to work that way, or something is preventing it from
2. The next thing to try would be a hard power off. This depends on the
machine, but generally holding power for at least 5 seconds will do it.
This doesn't give Windows a chance to shut down properly and save your work,
so I generally only do this if I can't easily shut it down any other way.
After that, just power it on normally.
