Gene's solution is what I was going to suggest, except that as described it probably won't work.
In order to use this, you must first go into Screen Review mode, by pressing NVDA+numpad7.
Once you do that, follow Gene's instructions.
Don't forget to return to object review mode after, by pressing NVDA+numpad1.
These are desktop layout commands, rtfm for the laptop versions.

You don't have to go into review mode. These are object review commands.
