my normal mode suddenly changes to text review mode

Hi friends
Sometimes, when I read a document in Word or Notepad, I find myself in
text review mode. Hence, I can’t edit or navigate with system carret.
I cann’t even get back to normal mode by pressing insert+back space.
why does it become like that? What is the solution?

Try NVDA+space.

Hello. I think that we may need some additional information as there are things you have written that I honestly am not following.


NVDA does have what is called a screen review mode. However, this affects only how the numeric keypad is used for reading text but this mode does not affect standard arrow key navigation. I am also not aware of an insert-backspace command.

Could you please be a bit more specific in what you are experiencing?

In other words what exactly happens when you open a document and you try to navigate through it? Please provide the exact steps you are taking, along with specific keystrokes you are using. Are you using the number pad or the standard arrow keys for navigation?

What exactly is happening when you try to navigate through a document and what are you expecting NVDA to do that it is not doing?

I am using the standard arrow keys for navigation. Indeed, it
sometimes become difficult to read with the standard arrow keys for
navigation. The problem is when I try to write or read. Because, when
I open a document to read and edit, the system carret (the edit
cursor) remains at the beginning of the document. And when I try to
read word by word with control + left/right arrow, it doesn’t work. In
this case, I read word by word with control+nvda key + left/right
arrow, which is reading keystroke for text review mode. to be able to
edit and read with the standard arrow keys for navigation, I restart
my pc; and it temporarily works fine.

Sorry, that happens with a new document or with a document you have received by mail or donloaded from Internet?
