Re: Question about NVDA profiles and layouts

I've never tried it, but there is certainly an application dictionary add on so one can have bespoke words defined as spoken a certain way in an application. I've not seen it on the list, but it seems to work.

Subject: [nvda] Question about NVDA profiles and layouts

Hi folks,
So I have a question for you all, perhaps it has been asked here but if
so it was way before I joined this list so here it goes.
Is there any way to switch between the desktop and the laptop layout as
we switch between profiles created?
That is, suppose I have a profile created for a certain program and
there I configured to use the laptop keyboard, whereas out of this
profile my default layout is the desktop one.
When exiting that window of that program, would NVDA get back to the
default layout of my choice? Would it actually never change because
there isn't any way to do such a thing?
In case of it's the second option, don't you think it'd be interesting
trying to develop an add-on that would allow one to do that if so one wants?
