Or you cann assign a hotkey for the speech viewer. It toggles the speech window on or off…

You can alt+tab to the speech viewer and then alt+f4 to close it.  The speech view shows a transcript of what NVDA reads.  Visually it sits on top of other windows so it is always visible - using the mouse, you can click on the window instead of alt+tabbing to it, but you then still need to alt+f4 to close it. You can also close it from NVDA's tools menu (the same way you opened it).


Having said that, it shouldn't stop you opening another NVDA window - I just opened speech viewer and then opened the general settings window and it happily let me have both open.  Have you perhaps got an NVDA settings window open already?

Well think about this for a moment. You do not want to close that window

using normal things so as far as I'm aware, alt/f4 closes it. If any other

combination was use it might go away when its actually needed!

Is there a way to close the Speech Viewer? Whenever it is up, I can't bring

up the NVDA dialog (via Insert N) to change settings. I am given an error

message that another dialog is already open, and am forced to close NVDA.
