Re: speech rate control

Someone else presented the short way.  If you didn’t see the message, hold control NVDA key and, while doing so, up or down arrow.  .  I never use it but I tried it after sending my message. 
 
You'll have to see if you like it.  Instead of skipping by one increment, the fast method skips by five increments.  this may or may not give you the control over speed you want.
 
If you change something else, such as the voice pitch, use the left and right arrows to move around the options until you get to speed.  Then use up and down arrow to change the speed.  I think it remembers what you set last so if you move to speed, you won't have to keep moving to speed.

Hi Gene

I thought that there is a short way or what is called on-fly method
like with jaws.

You are right that this is cumbersome.

I think that nvda developers or those designing addons should come up
with the simpler method activated by a key command.

Thanks though for your assistance.
