Re: An omission in the NVDA interface and it's not standard

I think i suggested this way back when we used to use Trac, but nobody thought it a good idea.
also not sure why it would make any difference how the property sheets were shown, you would simply go to a different tab by default with the command. I'm assuming that when in the property sheet that controls many others, you would have a short cut put in as part of the text, unless my earlier comment about redefinition was more valid now.

Hi,

Ideally, a link to the user guide might help from Welcome dialog.

Cheers,

Joseph

If it is unlikely, is there some way new users should be alerted to look at
the documentation for such commands? Perhaps some sort of information
should be included in the dialog that comes up when the program is run or
maybe there is a different way. I didn't know about such commands for quite
awhile. I learned how to use the menu in the documentation and I didn't
check farther because I had no reason to think there was anything to look
for. I wonder how many people, such as I, who have a lot of experience with
Windows programs assume that no such commands exist because they expect to
see them somehow shown in the interface.

Hi,

A few years ago there was a huge debate on the development channel regarding
how we can do this. But, as of today, it is highly unlikely that it can be
done due to vast paradigm shift that has just occurred on settings dialogs.

Cheers,

Joseph

Every so often, when I look through the NVDA menu, I wonder why accelerator
commands aren't given. these are usually commands such as control and a
character such as a letter or a number. NVDA has lots of these commands,
usually being combinations of control NVDA key and a character such as a
letter or number. The synthesizer dialog, for example, opens with NVDA key
control s. The voice settings dialog opens with control NVDA key v. Why
are none of these commands voiced when moving through the NVDA menu? This
is an important way for those who know enough about Windows basics to know
what they mean to be made aware of such commands or to quickly review them
without the cumbersome need to look in documentation. It also is standard
for menus to voice accelerator commands.
