Hmmm, I guess the terminology has changed then.

The laptop commands are the following:

NVDA+back space, will rout the review cursor to the system focus!

Shift+NVDA+back space will rout the system focus to the review cursor

The NVDA guide lists the laptop equivalent for the desktop equivalent!

Have a great one!

I appreciate all the suggestions.  However, how does  one do this using a laptop?  Your keystroke suggestions are for a desktop layout not a laptop.


I have searched through the NVDA help and can find nothing about moving the screen cursor or system cursor to the currently focused object.


Maybe this can't be done on a laptop?

Hi all,


I am trying to get some info from a field on the page but it says to use the mouse to view. I have looked at the object navigation methods after the suggestion on another list but I still can't figure this one out.


If there are any hams on this list who use the site and know how to get the email address of someone on using NVDA I sure would appreciate some help.
