Re: Endnotes in Word

Quentin Christensen

Hi Kelby,

Apologies for not replying sooner - I've been busy this week!

At the moment, there isn't an NVDA command to do what you want.  If you have any ideas on how to best implement something, I'm open to taking suggestions back to the team?

What you can do, currently, which is a Word command, is use the Go To function:

Press control+g to open the go to dialog
Press shift+tab once to move to the "go to what" list
Down arrow to "footnote" or "endnote" as appropriate.
TAB back to the "Enter footnote number" (the text will change for different elements)
Type 80

To move to the next footnote now, press CONTROL+PAGE DOWN (or CONTROL+PAGE UP for the previous one).

Kind regards

I don't really need to buy the entire training package; most of the
features of Word carry over from JAWS to NVDA. What I'm trying to
figure out how to do is go immediately to a particular
footnote/endnote, say note 80 of a document, without having to arrow
through the entire thing.
