What I told you is that I used to use the caps lock as an insert as well, not the insert key as a sticky key.
So now in NVDA I should start to use the insert key in some cases.
Thanks for your help

I'm not sure where you want to use it not as a sticky key. You can completely turn sticky keys off and then turn them on again very conveniently if your computer is set to do so. There are other ways to completely turn off sticky keys but for now, try either shift pressed five times. To turn them back on, try either shift five times and, when the dialog comes up, press either enter or the space bar. I haven't discussed other ways to turn them off because I haven't experimented with the other ways much.

Yes you are right, the capslocked was adjusted to be used as an insert key as well by the person who did my first installation most probably.
As I switched to NVDA from window eyes as it stopped running, I experienced those 2 problems which 1 was resolved,
Now as I never used the insert key before and in NVDA I have to use it not as a sticky key, but for other uses like the example I gave you, I don’t know if it works.
Sorry for all the trouble I’m giving you but without the help ofexperienced persons like you I won’t be able to resolve them.
Thank once again for your help
the insert key isn't defined as a sticky key by Windows. Keys like shift, control, alt, are defined as sticky keys. But NVDA causes either insert to act like a sticky key. I don't know if this is by design or by accident but by doing so, it has provided a significant service to those who use sticky keys and want to do so with a screen- reader.

Many thanks for your support to help me and for the details you have sent me.
I used to use window eyes before but I had to switch to n v d a because window eyes has stopped running.
I go to the voice settings when I need to change something as you explained, but what I said in the previous email was just a example problem, the only one have
With the help of gene I resolved the capital letter problem.
As I never used the insert key as a command key before I still don’t know if it is going to work with n v d a.
I hope you will be able to understand wat I mean.
In the official materials, we say to press say NVDA+control+up arrow to increase the speech, since you may have either insert or caps lock set as the NVDA modifier key (you can have both, in which case you can use either). Any tutorial which write commands as say insert+control+up arrow is essentially the same, just use caps lock rather than insert if that is what you have set as your NVDA modifier key.
Whether you use the numpad insert, extended insert (the one in the "six pack" above the arrow keys on most desktop keyboards) or the caps lock key, they should work as "sticky" keys if you are using Sticky keys in Windows. You might find that using the voice settings dialog is an easier way to change the speech rate as once you get into it ("Voice Settings" from NVDA's preferences menu or NVDA+control+v), you can tab to the appropriate slider and then adjust the rate.
Note if you are using Windows 10 and the newly available OneCore voices, these are often slower than other voices. To overcome this, search for "Change text to speech settings" in Windows itself and adjust the rate there first.
