    Narrator's navigation not accessible

    Running 8.1 and trying to set up narrator's text box to follow reading. Found that getting to narrator is OK but there is no navigation available there. This is where I can do the needed adjustments. Any ideas on what is wrong?

    I've just gone to the start screen, typed narr, that's all I needed to see the narrator results, one of which was narrator settings. Is that what you mean as that's where you do the adjustments. Or am I barking up the wrong tree?

    Just started narrator and there's a button on the task bar which when clicked brings up what you might be wanting but I'm not familiar with the software.

    I am/was looking for a means to encircle/highlight text to be read.
    This is critical to my needs and found reference to using a blue frame to encircle text and also to highlight. I by mistake did both but learned this needs to be set up in Narrator's Navigation section. I cannot find that Navigation area either by the direction U took nor others I tried.

    Click the task bar icon for settings including mouse/keyboard Navigation.

    When Narrator is open there's no icon for it on the task bar?

    Yes and when I right click there is navigator.
    I must be the dumbest mouse around but I see nothing about a blue frame to encompass text for reading. Help again.

    Try a left click on the task bar icon.
