The typing sound means focused mode, the bop noise means browse mode, it makes sense actually.

NVDA space toggles browse mode off and on. But if you are using sound for the notification, I don’t know which sound means what and I don’t like using sounds instead of speech in such ways. I have NVDA set to say browse mode when it is on and focus mode when it is off. If you want to change from sound to speech, I’ll explain how to do it.
Also, by default, NVDA automatically changes from Browse Mode to focus mode and back again depending on what structures you move to in a web page and how you move.
I am very much against this being default behavior. I think it is confusing to new students of NVDA and causes them to concentrate on learning when the automatic changes occur when what they should be concentrating on is when to use which mode. Manually changing from mode to mode, in my opinion, helps create understanding and helps concentration be on what it should be on, not a secondary consideration.
You can change this behavior as well, if you want.
I am referring to the internet and brouser mode. Sorry if I wasn’t very clear with what I was asking.
It isn’t clear what you are asking about. Are you asking about navigating using what in JAWS would be called the PC cursor? You may be asking about the Internet and browse mode but that should be clarified.
Hi can someone explain to me what is the commands to toggle on or off the NVDA’s normal navigation mode please?
Thanks in advance
