I'm not sure but the first thing I'd say to try is to make sure you are in object navigation mode.  Issue the command numpad insert numpad 1 until you hear either that you are in object navigation or you hear an announcement something like no previous navigation mode.
 
Then follow the entire procedure you described and see what happens.

OK here is what I am doing and it must be something wrond.  I use the arrow keys on the web page until it says tab specs.  I then hit insert slash then slash again to left click.  Nothing happenss on the pace.  I have sighted help use the physical mouse and it opens the specs on the laser.  Forgive this old man but what the heck am I doing wrong?

Down arrow from the tabs or move in any other way you want to read the material.  When you select a tab, the information on the page changes below the tabs and you read it as you do any web page information.

So how do you read the info that comes up?

I just checked.  As I thought would likely happen, when you left click a tab, the text changes under the tabs. 
 
Never assume that if you don't hear speech after taking an action on a web page, that nothing has happened.
Also, If you have JAVA script disabled or are using a script blocker, I don't think the tabs will work.  I believe they are JAVA script controls.

It probably won't say anything automatically.  If you activate the tab in that way, the contents of the page may change to reflect the name of the tab.

I am using Google Chrome and the web site is listed below.  There are
several tabs for description, specs and so on.  If I try to use insert
slash on the tab NVDA says nothing and when I follow by the left click
nothing happens.
