Re: Finding in MS Word

It has always seemed a bit odd to me the way word search works. The nvda search in browse mode is more convenient in many cases.

I can confirm this also. Windows 7 and office 2010
here are some tips to work with the find functionality of word 2010:

- hit ctrl + f to go to the search field
- enter the term you wish to search for, and hit enter
- use f6 (several times, maybe 3) to get back to the document, where the
first result is focused
- to go to next / previous search result: hit f6, the focus will jump to
the navigation toolbar, from there click previous / next search result
- again, use f6, several times, as needed, to get back to the document
where the search result is focused

I don't know the shortcuts for previous / next search result, sorry!
hope that helps!

solution I would appreciate it.

This has not been the case in the past and I don't think I'm doing
differently than I had been before. I have, regardless of screen reader,
had many instances where I didn't seem to get the screen reader find with
INS+CTRL+F but generally would on a subsequent try. Not in this case. I
smell a possible bug.

I worry a lot. . . I worry that no matter how cynical you become it's
enough to keep up.
