Re: still some carricter help

Don't hold NVDA down when pressing 1.
The reason NVDA shift z and NVDA arrows and such aren't working, I
suspect, is because you're using the desktop keyboard layout. Please do
the following:
1. Go to the NVDA menu, Preferences, Keyboard, or press CTRL+NVDA+k.
2. Select laptop in the Keyboard layout combo box, then press enter.
Does it work now?

I don't know how different versions of Microsoft Word display such
material. It used to be displayed in a list and you could not left and
right arrow to spell just as you can't in a list of file and folder
names. Use numpad 1 to move backward and numpad 3 to move forward.
These are screen review commands. I don't know if you would benefit
from using screen review commands anywhere else but you might benefit
from learning basic commands.

Numpad 1 is move back to and read previous character. 2 is read current
character. 3 is move to and read next character.

Numpad 4 5 and 6 are the same for word.

7 8 and 9 are the same for line.

Thanks guys the numpad 5 does spell out the word, but it doesn't let me
arrow through the word carricter by carricter, any other options?
