If you want to use it to check whether keys are working or find out what keys are on a new keyboard, press NVDA+1 (number row 1) to turn input help on.  Then it will read every key you press without doing anything, so you can test what different keys are or whether they work.

 

Once finished, press NVDA+1 again to turn input help off.

Re speak command keys, you can also toggle this with NVDA+4 (again 4 on the number row).

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.
