help with obtaining positional info in documents

macOS and Mac Apps
Hi; I was wondering if anyone can tell me how to get information on position in a document. Is there a specific shortcut key I can use to get line and column information? Specifically, I want to make sure tabs are aligned in pages and also that bullet points for example are in line underneath one another. Is this possible with VO? Thanks for any help.

There are a few VO commands that are similar but not exactly what you're asking for. VO and T will speak the text attributes. This includes the alignment. VO command f3 will describe the size of the object in the Voiceover cursor. And finally, VO command and f3 twice will give the position in inches with respect to the top left corner of the screen. HTH
