Thank you for this message. I will definitely check out that link. Can you interact with these objects? This software is not standard when it comes to controls which is part of the reason it took me ages to learn it, LOL.

Hi Janet, I'm glad you've got something working for now. Based on your description I think it's unlikely JAWS scripts are being used. I am sure there's a way somewhere to check if JAWS scripts have been installed or not but I don't know where it is located in JAWS.
So as far as object navigation and NVDA is concerned, it's essentially the equivalent of the JAWS touch cursor or whatever Window eyes called it. The equivalent of the JAWS cursor is screen review/review cursor. I'm only familiar with laptop keyboard layout but I know many others can explain the desktop layout keystrokes.
So object nav is essentially moving between groups of object, so:
- to move to the next object, press NVDA shift right arrow
- to move to the previous object, press NVDA shift left arrow
- to move between groups of objects, press NVDA+shift+up/down arrow.
NVDA is in object review move by default. To cycle between review modes, press control+page up/page down.
There's also an exercise in this in process post that I suggest trying to help get a better understanding of object navigation. https://www.nvaccess.org/post/in-process-20th-november-2020/
It's under the heading "using object navigation in Windows 10 settings).
Object nav does take some getting used to if you used a different screen reader in the past, but once you grasp it, you can access a lot more information. Hope this helps.
