In jaws and other screen readers, when you're in IE or FireFox, you can press CTRL+F and a dialog will come up, letting you type in a particular text string and pressing enter. It moves the virtual cursor (Or whatever you want to call it) to the next occurence of the text string you typed in. But when you press CTRL+F in NVDA, you get a toolbar, and it's hard to navigate it. I was wondering if you could somehow make something that would allow us to find and go to a particular location on a page in IE or FireFox, just by typing the text in. That would be very useful. Thx.

Sidenote: on my system NVDA +ctrl +F only works with right ctrl.

Unfortunately, this is probably a keyboard specific issue. Some keyboards seem to dislike certain combinations of three or more keys.
