I have read the user guide but it was a very brief overview of the Screen Review Mode.

If you mean ObjectNAV, it's not that scary.

Actually tha'ts not quite true. I use screen
review on a lot of newer programs and activate things with
the mouse. I use screen review to read the screen, route and
click. I never if I can help it use object review.

Ah, I see.
What you are
describing is called “focus mode” where whatever key
you press will be dealt not by NVDA but by the web
application you are using. For example, pressing K
while playing a YouTube video will pause the video
if focus mode is on, whereas NVDA will move you to
the next link if browse mode is active.
Screen review, on
the other hand, will let you review the contents of
an app’s window. For example, under older programs,
activating screen review mode will let you see the
contents of the app that aren’t accessible with
keyboard commands. These days screen review would
not work properly in newer apps but you can find out
the contents of a window by doing an OCR (NVDA+R).
Well, I thought that screen
review mode meant that a page allowed you to
activate certain shortcuts that a page had.
For example, on YouTube you can
press “K” for it to pause and play.
Can you tell us what
you know about screen review? That way we can
help you fill in the gap.
I think I am
overthinking NVDA’s Screen Review Mode. Can
someone explain it to me? Or point me to
where I can learn more about it.
