In ms word how to search a particular word


Mohd. Ahtesham Shaikh
 

 How can I search a word in Microsoft document and move the focus of the cursor once I have found that particular word 
 Similarly I have problems searching words in PDF documents.
 Your support will be highly appreciated

I find this a pain as well as it may highlight the first one or all as you select, but actually getting there without destroying the e highlight is a bit difficult.

I just played with this with NVDA a short while ago, and again with NVDA off.

NVDA is using Word's own search via the Navigation pane that opens when you hit CTRL+F or NVDA+CTRL+F.  When the search is done, focus is sitting on the "Next Result" button, and each activation moves you from the currently focused occurrence of the found word/phrase to the next, highlights are unaffected other than the one that indicates actual current focus moving from one occurrence to the next.  If I hit ESCape once I've arrived at the occurrence I'm interested in, focus jumps back in to the document itself and that instance is selected.  If I then right arrow or left arrow it removes selection if that's what one wants to do, or if I start typing it replaces that instance with whatever I type, which is standard behavior.

As far as PDF files go, much depends on the actual PDF reader being used, so it is vital to know that.

At least for word documents I activate the nvda's browse mode, then I press nvda + control + f, tipe the word and press enter.
On pdf files, since I use QRead, I simply press control + f, tipe de word and press enter. If I want to find the next occurrence, I press f3.

Hmm, that did not seem to work for me here. Which mode should word be in browse or edit?
Also of course there does seem to be an issue if the word is on page 2.
