MathPlayer Navigation Commands in Word
To start navigation:
 In NVDA, press NVDA+Alt+M. (The NVDA key is Insert. Caps Lock can also
be enabled as an NVDA key.)
 In WindowEyes, press Ctrl+Shift+A.
To exit navigation:
 In NVDA, press Esc.
 In WindowEyes, press Ctrl+Shift+A.
Navigation modes
There are two navigation modes, each of which can be set:
 Speech after move mode: Whether the expression is read or
described (a summary/outline) after each move.
 Navigation mode: Navigate by subexpression, small piece, or
character (shift+down/up arrow will cycle to smaller/larger modes and then
wrap around). See next section for
explanations of these modes.

Navigation Modes
 Enhanced mode: Navigation is by mathematically meaningful pieces
(operators, delimiters, and operands).
 Simple mode: This moves by words except when you get to a 2D
notation (fractions, roots, …), then it speaks the entire notation.
Zooming in lets you explore the 2D notation in the same mode. Zooming out or
moving out of the 2D notation brings you back to the outer/higher level of
navigation.
 Character mode: This is actually two useful modes  word mode and
character mode (zoom in to get "real" character mode). Moves by
words/characters. This differs for numbers of more than one digit and
function names such as "sin" that are multiple characters. Otherwise, word
and character navigation is the same.
Typical Use
Typically, you begin navigating by zooming in (down arrow) one or more
levels, and then moving right (right arrow) as desired. Some larger expressions
require zooming in again as you move to the right.
Backspace will take you back to where you were, which is not always
the same as moving to the left. For example, if right arrow moved you out of a
fraction, backspace will take you back to where you were in the denominator and
left arrow will land on the entire fraction.
