It's not a work around because it's not a fault. It's just a sensible and
easy way of getting to know your keyboard.

Since it announces letters and numbers unshifted, it is reasonable that it
announce the shifted items as well. Of course, you can do what you are
saying, but it is more convenient and better design if input help can
announce shifted items. Your method is a work around.

I thought input help was designed to give instructions on NVDA commands
rather than keyboard layout. For keyboard layout type investigations, open
a text file and switch on speak typed characters, NVDA+2.

I didn't realize this until now but I was playing with input help today and
I found that NVDA doesn't announce what shifted number keys do nor what
shifted items such as punctuation keys do. If you hold shift and press a
number key, you will hear something like shift plus and then the number is
announced. That doesn't give useful information. What if I wanted to find
the dollar sign. I couldn't do so using input help. And I couldn't know
from input help that shift slash is the question mark. I'd hear something
like shift plus slash. Why is this the case and can it be changed without
unreasonable effort?
