Good Day: Beings they are using the f5 key to refresh the window
to make the correction. Is it possible to refresh the window in
your instructions for when the f1 is pressed? I don't know if
that would work or not, but just thinking about the logic of this,
I thought I would throw it out there for an idea.

Thanks for reporting this. We can see the issue,
but don't have a solution at this stage. On the basis that it
"often" works, and even when it doesn't, the experience is no
worse than it was previously, it will likely be left as is for
If someone experiencing this can see anything interesting
in the log and feels like writing up an issue on GitHub, feel
free to tag me so I can follow it. Although I could replicate
it when I first read the message, I was in the middle of
something else, and now I was going to have a look at it, I
can't replicate it :)

Subject: [nvda] The f1 key not bringing up sections properly
in nvda 2020.4 beta 1
has any one else notice in nvda 2020.4 beta 1 when you go into
the settings of nvda say you pick a section then press the F1
key it is meant to bring up information on that section or the
setting you are looking at.
It seems to work some times bringing up the right section and
other times it brings up the user manual.
but it seems also if the user manual comes up while looking at
settings if it does not come up correctly press the f5 key and
sections seem to come up correctly.
What I mean if the setting you are looking at then press the
f1 key and
the user manual comes up instead of the section you are
looking at press
the f5 key and the section you are looking at comes up
I tried this in a couple of different browsers with the same
the user manual coming up instead of the right section until
the f5 key to bring it up. I will have to do more playing
around with it.
I am guessing it should come up correctly on all settings you
find out more into on not just the ones with check boxs.
