moderated find next

OK I use the insert control f to find something on a web page and it works as it should. What is the find next command? I thought it was f3 or control f3 but neither seems to work.
Thanks

I don't use insert on a web page.
Try just control + F and F3 to repeat it.
I only include the insert key in eMail messages.

Glen is right. Pressing f3 on a Web page will move to the next instance of what you last entered in the JAWS find dialog.
As a reminder pressing insert-space followed by the letter J will let you enter a search term for a keystroke you may have forgotten. In this case, entering the word "find" would give you a list of JAWS find commands.

That really depends on what it is you're trying to find.  The straight browser find works perfectly if you're interested in finding something in the page text, but controls like buttons will be ignored.

There are times when forcing a screen reader find to "take in everything" is worth doing, but it depends on what it is you're trying to search.  And depending on what's on the web page you may or may not be able to force a screen reader find function.

JAWS find is triggered by CTRL+INS+F3 and you use INS+F3 to do a JAWS Find Next. and INS+SHIFT+F3 to do a JAWS Find Previous.

Excuse me, that was a typo for triggering JAWS Find, which is CTRL+INS+F,  NOT F3

And this presumes the desktop keyboard layout is in use.  Substitute CAPS LOCK for INS if using the laptop layout.

If you use insert-ctrl-f fo r find, then I think you have to use insert-f3 for find next.

good luck.

This is understandably confusing. With Edge and Chrome, and as I recall with IE (but I'm not completely sure), use F3 by itself to repeat a search after using the JAWS insert-f find command. The same is true for Outlook messages. However, it is necessary to combine the JAWS key with F3 when repeating a search on a Word document.

I've just tested all those commands before posting. I can't speak for Firefox or other email programs. I didn't test a PDF file.

It's a shame JAWS had to make an exception for Word, causing all this confusion, but F3 has an independent function in that application.
