Re: Finding in MS Word

Kerry Fielding <littlemisslovely1973@...>

Well, being a relatively new NVDA user, I simply opened word 2016, typed in a bit of text then did control+nvda+f and looked for the word dog.  It seems to work for me but then I only input a very small amount of text

Are you in Browse mode or focus mode when you press NVDA+control+f?


(Browse mode, for reading, can use single letter navigation keys and NVDA+f7 elements list like on the web.  Focus mode,you can write text - Word is normally in focus mode).


NVDA+control+f only works in Browse mode, so you need to press NVDA+spacebar in Word to switch to browse mode, but otherwise, it may provide a simpler "find" interface for some than particularly the task panes in the newer versions of Word.

The NVDA find command doesn't seem to work in MS word. When I press it
it treats me as having pressed ctrl-f, which is the regular Word find
and which doesn't work as well. How do you find text in a Word
