Default value of Start from: Current location
Whether or not capitalization should be taken into account when seeking a match
Default value of Match case: not checked
Whether or not to limit matches to those which match the entire word or phrase
Default value of Match entire word only: not checked
Whether Find should look down and/or to the right for the next match or up and/or to the left.
Default value of Search backwards: not checked
Whether or not Find should wrap around to the top/bottom of the window if there is no match found from the starting location in the direction of the search.

Having performed a search, you can quickly search for the next or previous match without having to return to the Orca Find dialog box.
Because it is afeature, when there is a match, Flat Review will automatically be activated and the matching item or text will become the current review item. Note that focus within the application will not be modified, nor will the caret be repositioned. If you need to accomplish either, please see .
