If you use the command numpad insert numpad times, which I think is numpad asterisk, the object navigator will move to the position of the mouse pointer. You can then spell the entire item by pressing numpad 8 twice quickly or spell the current word by pressing numpad 5 twice quickly.
The numpad commands for read current letter, move forward and read the next letter and move back and read the previous letter are:
numpad 2, numpad 3, and numpad 1.
I don't know how well reading is done if you read as you do. Reading is not intended to be done in this way. You might get much more efficient and pleasant reading if you use the intended method, the read to end command in a document or web page. Do you know the command and have you used it?

It may be that I'm just misunderstanding what you want, but is this not
already available with the flat review commands?
Not sure exactly how this is handled if you're using the mouse to get NVDA's
placement to use the flat review commands to read character by character, but
I'd be curious if one of the follow cursor settings would allow it to keep track
of the mouse's position and then let you review that position with the flat
Just a thought.
