OK, so if I’m using chrome or edge,
Do I hit F9 to turn on reader mode/immersive reader?
I ask because sometimes it comes up on some websites and other times it doesn’t.
I hear jaws or Nbba or somebody like that say immersive reader sometimes but not all the time.

Immersive reader is another name for reader mode. It won't take
away control from your screen-reader. It may have a read aloud
button where reading is not done by the screen-reader but you have
to manually start that option.

don't know about imersive reader. Reader mode strips out all the
social media links e.g. "share on facebook" etc, as well as all
the annoying ads that are sprinkled through many pages, letting
you,k for example, see the ingredients and instructions for a
recipe without the intervening disruptive ads. Or you can read an
entire article without all those interruptions. In firefox, which
is the easiest to use, in my view, you just hit f9 to invoke
reader mode. That's all there is to it. When you move to another
site, its turned off, so must be turned on each time you want to
use it. You can also tottle it off if you're on a site where it
didn't work well for some reason, just by hitting f9 again.

What is Reader mode?
Is it the same as immersive reader?
I seem to believe that if I use immersive reader it just
continuously reads the whole webpage with no control to read
line by line word by word, paragraph, etc.

Use reader mode in your browser if available. Gets rid of all

I run into this a lot too and would appreciate any ideas
about how to bypass it.

On many websites, on lots of lines NVDA says
inserted advertising inserted inserted
This information doesn't seem to be on screen so it's
probably a function of NVDA. I'm sure it's something I can
turn off if I knew how or where. Can someone give me a hand
with this one?
