Re: [attention to joseph lee, sticky keys with NVDA

I disabled and enabled the add-ons as you explained to me, but the problem remained there even with the sticky keys turned off.
To remind you again what is the problem, when I press the insert plus f12 to check the time it works, but when I press it twice to read me out the date it doesn’t work.
And that happens withother commands where I have to press them more than once.
Thanks in advance

And sticky keys option in Ease of Access isn’t helping, and did restarting NVDA (both with add-ons enabled and disabled) improve the situation?
I am a single handedperson so to be able to use my laptop keyboard I need to use the sticky keys.
My problem is that I am noticing that the sticky keys are interfering with the capslock,
And the other problem is when I come for example to press the insert plus f12 twice to check the date it doesn’t work.
And that happens also with the other commands that we have to press them once, twice and more to do do certain things.
In my opinion the sticky keys are not working as they should with NVDA.
Can you please do something about it to be resolved?
I hope you will be able to understand what I mean.
Thanks in advance
Dear NVDA community:
For those on NVDA users and add-ons lists: a few days ago I announced Project Hidden Singer/Big Bang, a project to restructure code in Windows 10 App Essentials and say goodbye to old workarounds. This is partly motivated by the fact that, with NVDA 2017.3, features from this add-on will make their debut as part of the screen reader itself, so the add-on is no longer required for some major tasks. The below announcement is just a first step in this project, with the complete picture emerging by September 2017.
As part of NVDA 2017.3, NV Access, together with Joseph Lee, a Windows Insider and a noted NVDA expert in United States, have developed a set of features designed to improve user experience for Windows 10 users using NVDA. Prior to the upcoming release, an add-on called Windows 10 app Essentials have included features such as sounds to indicate appearance of search suggestions, announcing top search suggestion in braille and various workarounds for Windows 10 and various universal apps. Joseph, the author of the Windows 10 App Essentials, is delighted to announce that these features will be part of upcoming NVDA 2017.3, scheduled to hit the air sometime in August 2017.
As part of this work, I (Joseph Lee) would like to announce three important things:
