I find nowadays that I used the Aria shortcut key as a useful navigation aid
on supported web pages like the BBC.
In Jaws, the shortcut key is semi colon 
I tried to find similar functionality in NVDA.  Initially I Googled this
with out success and could not find it easily in the NVDA Help

Turning NVDA keyboard help on and going through all the keys by trial and
error I have found that the aria landmark key in NVDA is D. this is actually
a more intuitive key than the Jaws use of semi colon.

I thought I would pass this on. I think most people will find the use of the
D key helpful using pages with  Aria landmarks such as the BBC useful.
