Hi, tgabjs fir the response

what you mention is what I said that i use but doesnt solve the problem:
"o solve this normally I try to use nvda+* to move the cursor to the place or copy the text and paste it into a notepad and use the cursor to read the wors and letter by letter."
is far from ideal since the cursor varies according the type of place where your mouse is over is not the same a windows icon, than a web page or an excel document, also it doesnt work well with several situations in web pages, what the mouse over reads at some exact point is not the same if you use this key.

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 review commands.
Just a thought.
