Re: In ms word how to search a particular word

Hmm, that did not seem to work for me here. Which mode should word be in browse or edit?
Also of course there does seem to be an issue if the word is on page 2.

Subject: Re: [nvda] In ms word how to search a particular word

I just played with this with NVDA a short while ago, and again with NVDA off.

NVDA is using Word's own search via the Navigation pane that opens when you hit CTRL+F or NVDA+CTRL+F. When the search is done, focus is sitting on the "Next Result" button, and each activation moves you from the currently focused occurrence of the found word/phrase to the next, highlights are unaffected other than the one that indicates actual current focus moving from one occurrence to the next. If I hit ESCape once I've arrived at the occurrence I'm interested in, focus jumps back in to the document itself and that instance is selected. If I then right arrow or left arrow it removes selection if that's what one wants to do, or if I start typing it replaces that instance with whatever I type, which is standard behavior.

As far as PDF files go, much depends on the actual PDF reader being used, so it is vital to know that.
