I wonder if it is an add-on, as Ron suggested. I don't have the
behavior in Chrome or Edge. I do have it in Brave.

It also happens in Chrome as well.
When in the search field for google search page, no keys are
echoed. This only started recently.
I have observed at least similar
results using Firefox and GMail compose/edit boxes.
I cannot be sure but I think this
is the same symptoms/problem...
To clarify, I don't think the
cursor is not moving, it is just not speaking when it is
This is happening more often with
recent versions of NVDA.
Unfortunately, I do not have a
set of steps to reproduce the problem.
As others have reported, moving
away from the edit box and coming back is the only known
Until recently, I had only
experienced this while using Linked-In message
At that time, probably 2/3 years

I haven’t tested with
the browsers you have named but the Brave
browser, another Chrome-based browser,
displays this behavior in the Google search

[nvda] NVDA 2021.3.1 cursor doesn't
move in Google product edit fields
Hi. When I type into
Google product edit fields like the search
fields in Youtube or Google search, I can't
move the cursor around the text using the
ARROW KEYS unless I TAB out of and back into
the edit field. I tried both Microsoft Edge
and Google Chrome with the same result, but
they are both chromium-based browsers. I
only have those browsers installed on my
computer, and they are both up-to-date.
This doesn't happen in other edit fields
like the Windows search box. I'm using
Windows 10 Pro Version 21H2 (OS Build
19044.1466), NVDA 2021.3.1, Microsoft Edge
Version 97.0.1072.62 (Official build)
(64-bit), and Google Chrome Version
97.0.4692.71 (Official Build) (64-bit). Has
anyone else come across this?
