For MS Word, one of the Dutch NVDA users requested the possibility to jump to the next/previous spelling error using quick navigation. I agree that this might be an interesting feature. The p key would be an option for this.

So, two options have been mentioned:

  • P: second letter of word spelling
  • control+; , although @ruifontes argued against it

Also, we do have some punctuation keys left unbound, including semicolon, left and right bracket, dash, equals, `period, slash and accent grave

Well, why not W for wrong?

Actually, the more I think about this one, the more I like it. W for warning could also be applied to alerts on web pages.

So, we go for w here. But what message will someone get when there's no error left?

  1. No next spelling error. This fits the case, as a grammatical error is also related to how you spell things
  2. No next proofing error. @dkager brought this one up, and I like it
  3. No next warning. At least spelling errors get a red line underneath to warn the user. Furthermore, this one can be generalised to alerts and other types of warnings as well, as I proposed above.
