Re: Find On Page


Hi Glenn


First, it is important to ensure you are in Browse mode, otherwise the standard browser Find will activate. Press NVDA + Space to toggle between Browse and Focus mode.


To clarify the commands:

  • NVDA + Control + F performs an NVDA find on the page.
  • NVDA + F3 will find the next instance of what you searched for.
  • NVDA + Shift + F3 will find the previous instance of what you searched for.


These commands should be working reliably in Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Firefox etc.


Hope this helps.

I have always tried both control + F and then when I remember/rediscover that it doesn't work, I try insert + control + F and that never works right either.

It should take me to the word, and F3 should repeat it, but it does something, but the word is nowhere around my cursor.
