Not necessarily, or if it does, you first have to know they exist.  Because of the many objects and how you have to find and move into containing objects, you may well find objects you wouldn’t have found if you had looked manually. 
 
There are times when you might want to use control b and times when you will want to look manually but neither one is sufficient by itself in all circumstances.

Thanks Gene.
I didn't know NVDA-b would select the object when stopped like that.
The facility to browse through the objects manually allows more careful consideration though. :)

I meant NVDA b.  I’m not sure if that is the same thing as is being discussed but, if you are in object review, using that command moves through every object in the active window.  And if you stop when a certain object is being announced the object navigator will be on that object.

NVDA+2 (main keyboard) toggles speaking of typed characters?
I'm not sure what you had in mind there Gene.

Is scrolling through all the objects the same thing as using NVDA key 2 on the main  keyboard?

Hi Quentin ,

I'm not too concerned with arguing the case for default key strokes being setup.

So long as it goes into the manual then people can set the keys up if they wish.

I think these functions can be very useful though. When using object navigation to find elements that we know are on the screen somewhere but may not have a clear sense of the object hierarchy it can be a lot easier if time consuming to just scroll through all of the objects.

I have certainly used this on occasion.

I've assigned them to 3 and 9, prev and next respectively.

Very best wishes,

David
