I think it is a fabulous idea.
I’ll definitely use such a manual.

I think it’s a great idea. I reckon loads of people will find it useful, myself included 😀
As the subject says, I am planning to write a guide on how to browse the web more efficiently with NVDA.
As you all know, NVDA has a ton of single navigation commands to navigate to different webpage elements, E.G. Landmarks, headings, block quotes, links, the newly introduced groupings and articles etc. However, there doesn't seem to be much info in laypersons terms about what these elements are, much less how you can use them to get around the web quicker. There's loads of dev info on w3c, but nothing much for your average screen reader user navigating the web.
I would post it on the community wiki as frankly I'm only one woman and don't know everything. So it'd be a community effort much like the JAWS to NVDA guide, which I did most of the initial work on.
What do you all think of such a project? Would you find it useful?
Also, if a similar thing already exists, I don't want to reinvent the wheel.
All the best,
