Subject: Accessing the text of comments in Google Docs


When I am reading a Google Doc, JAWS says comment start, followed by the text on which a comment has been made and then comment end. Is there a keystroke to get to the text of the comment when the cursor is on the text to which the comment relates?

Essentially a keystroke similar to alt+r followed by n that does this job in Word. Being able to view comments by and by in this way while reading a document would be very helpful.

I know of the alt+control+shift+a keystroke to open the full list of comments, but that is quite an inconvenient way to interact with comments.
