Clipspeak will read the following commands:

CTRL+A: Select all
CTRL+Z: Undo
CTRL+Y: Redo
CTRL+C: Copy
CTRL+V: Paste

Is that what you are after?

The idea of a more customisable "speak command keys" comes up from time to time, but the problem is everyone wants different things. My idea would probably be to have a simple set of options, say checkboxes for groups of keys like:
- function keys
- arrow keys
- modifier keys


If anyone has a really clear and widely useful variant on that they'd really like to see, do feel free to write it up on GitHub:

I am aware that if you go into the NVDA menu keyboard settings, it is possible to turn on and off the announcement of command keys. I am wondering if there is any way to customize this. I want to hear NVDA say control C when I copy text, control V when I paste, but it is very annoying to hear down arrow every time I hit the down arrow. Can I set this so I can hear some of these keystrokes, but not others?

Thanks for any help on this.
