Re: nvda announcing clipboard functions and other keystrokes

Here's how to fix this, and hopefully have it wait until something has been copied.
* Write an addon which binds control x and control c. When you press one of these keys, It sets a flag.
* Have the addon create a window and call AddClipboardFormatListener. When responding to WM_CLIPBOARDUPDATE, it should speak cut or copied depending on what was pressed.

Thank you Gene from NZ. While I'd still like things to be different, this is
a good check to make sure something's been copied or cut to the clipboard.

When ever i do a copy and pastei always use a extra step which is using
the nvda key + letter C and it will tell me if there is text there or not.

My self i do not need to know or hear it say copy or paste. it is just a
matter of when i do do a copy i put in that extra step.

The same idea if you use the nvda key + f9 key to start a mark and then
the nvda key + f10 to say it has been copied i can confirm with the
extra step if needed.

I used that add-on for a short while. The problem I found was that it
reliable. There were times that I'd use it, hear the announcement, only to
find that the action hadn't been true to the announcement. The add-on
to verify the keystroke, but doesn't wait to do so till after the action
itself has been verified. This is one small area where Jaws is still

There is an addon which makes these announcements available.

It is called Fake Clipboard announce or something like that.

You should able to find it on the addons repositary.

Hi, I have to figure this out and don't have an nvda machine to poke
around on. It never used to bother me that NVDA doesn't announce cut,
copy, paste, in particular, and other functions accessible using
windows standard keys, but I've got a friend who is a new user of NVDA
and he needs some more feedback from keystrokes, particularly these
clipboard functions. Is there a setting to enable speaking for these
keys, or do I need to install an add-on for this?
