Re: Only speak pressed keyboard characters and nothing else

There are options you can turn off which will reduce what is announced, although nothing that will directly do what you are asking. If you are using the built-in eSpeak NG voice, sometimes pressing SHIFT can stop speech a little quicker than control. Shift actually pauses NVDA - and pressing shift again continues speaking exactly where it left off. Control stops speech and does not have a corresponding "continue" function.
Some options you could turn off:
- Everything in the document formatting dialog (NVDA+control+d) - this dialog controls whether NVDA announces text changes (eg bold or change in alignment), elements such as lists or headings on web pages etc.
- Everything on the Object presentation dialog (NVDA+control+o).
- Automatic say all on page load, in Browse mode settings (NVDA+control+b) which controls whether web pages are automatically read out as they finish loading.
Otherwise, there isn't an option (or group of options) that will do exactly what you want. Those I highlighted will do some, which may be enough.
Otherwise, I would recommend learning more about NVDA - once you understand what it is reading, it is easier to ignore the parts that you don't need at that moment. We have started offering a range of training modules. I'd recommend the Basic Training for NVDA to start with as it contains most things you need to know.
