I do know that some internal laptop keyboards have an inability to be able to detect a number of keys pressed at once. I used to have an old Sony that did this, may moons ago. the only option was an external keyboard.

In keyboard help, control shift nvda speak when held down together but the arrow keys do not speak.

First thing to do is turn on keyboard help - think it's also just NVDA +
number row 1 - to make sure that when you enter the other keystroke that
the correct one is being passed/recognised, etc.?

Stay well

Assunto: [nvda] Laptop Layout issue

HP EliteBook 8440P running windows 7 Professional with all updates. NVDA is
set to laptop layout. I can't set the voice parameters with
NVDA+Shift+Control and the arrow keys. Has anyone else encountered this
behavior? Is there a work-around?
