Re: Moving Focus and Brows Mode Cursors at the same time in editable Browser Elements?

Bruno Aníbal Prieto González

In Microsoft Word, using UI Automation (in advanced options this is
activated) the same thing happens, there is no way to synchronize both
modes as you can do with this option deactivated.

I'd love to see that problem solved.

I am wondering if there is a way to connect the focus mode to the brows
mode in rich text editors or editable elements in the browser?

1. Open:

2. Press o to get to the "Application" and hit enter.

3. Press escape until you are placed in the editing area.

4. Arrow down several lines

5. Press NVDA+space to go into brows mode.

6. Arrow up and down to find out your cursor when editing is
different than your cursor when in brows mode.

7. In brows mode, hit h to go to "A simple table to play with" and
hit enter.

8. Press read current line and it will be on the last line you were
on in focus mode.

I'm sure someone would find this behavior useful sometime, but it is really
making using rich text fields annoying in the browser.

Is there some way to connect these two cursors together?

I have both Caret moves review cursor on, and Focus moves navigator object

Thank you,
