I'm not sure what you'd exect to happen, when you do a find, it's supposed to take you to the location of the found text. That's exactly what the control-F does, and that's exactly what I'd expect it to do. Why would I expect it to begin reading from that point, I didn't ask it to read, I asked it to find, and it does that. If you want to read from where it puts you, use the read commands, and guess what? It starts reading, just like you'd expect.
Maybe it's my unix herritage, but when I put in a command, I expect it to do just what it's supposed to do , and nothing else. If I tell it to find something, it's because I want to find something, not because I want to read from that found spot to the end of the document, or from the start to where the text was found, the purpose of the find command is to find text, and it does that task very well, and that' all it does, because that's all it's supposed to do. I don't understand why you would want the command to do something else in addition to finding the text in question. What's the point?? Especially if I'm looking for that text, because I know it's a link I want to click on, I sure don't want the screen reader to pick up and start reading down to the end of the document, I want it to find the text, and put me on it, and let me decide what to do next, whether that's click on the link, read the next line, or read to end of document, that's up to me, not the find command. It'd be kind of silly to expect anything else.
