Re: Single key navigation in Google Chrome

it's almost certainly nothing to do with browse mode being off.  Even if you turn off browse mode and then move to another page, using a bookmark, from history, by typing an address in the address bar, etc. you will automatically be placed back in browse mode. 
 
The first questions are, can you read a web page in other ways, such as by moving with the arrow keys and by using commands such as read to end.
 
Are the quick navigation keys the only navigation method that doesn't work? 
The answers to those questions are the first things we need to know.

Hi


No


make sure you are in browse mode you can use the nvda key + space bar to do this. Depending how you have it set you will either either hear like a key been typed this means you are in focus mode where you can type like in a form. If it makes a higher sound maybe like a ball been bounced it will be in browse mode.


if you want to hear it spoken that is how i have mine press the nvda key + ctrl key + the letter B. When the settings come up for that section tab down until you hear the following Audio indication of focus and browse modes and uncheck the box then apply and ok it Then from on you will hear it spoken as say in the browser or if you have microsoft word when you change modes.


hope it helps.
