- Different focus from say all and arrowing through
Re: Different focus from say all and arrowing through
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
In laptop keyboard mode, I'm using NVDa+a to start say all.
I have not used NVDA+space to enter browse mode in word. I guess I could check to see if I'm entering by default, but I haven't seen any signs of doing so: as in typing an h and moving to a heading.

command you are talking about does exactly the opposite. It means that the
review position will change as the cursor changes in a word processor document
where there is a cursor or in a list and perhaps elsewhere. It doesn’t
cause the system focus to change when you use screen review. That’s one of
the points of screen review and object navigation. You can review things
and keep your position unchanged where you are working as your review position

Are you using browse mode or working directly in the program? That
may be what is causing the problem. If you are using browse mode in a word
processor, try reading when not in browse mode and see if tracking is
If my suggestion doesn’t solve the probloem, I have another one but
I’ll wait to see what you say about this one.

While proofreading a long document using say-all, I'd find a place
for editing, and hit control to stop speech, but then when I'd arrow through the
document, I'd be in a different place. I have focus follows caret set in
review, so I figured the focus would, well, follow the system caret. I
thought the system caret would travel with the say'all cursor.
I'm a little rusty on NVDA concepts, since for a long time, I did most of
my work on a Chromebook, but now I'm using my win 10 machine a lot more again,
and MS Office.
