Turn off keyboard echo alltogehter. I do this as I don't use it personally. There is also an option under speach somewhare to stop that.

Take care

Hello Everyone.

I have a user who is trying to make the transition from jaws to NVDA. He would like NVDA to read keys like tab, shift tab, enter, alt F4 etc but not the down arrow, up arrow, left/right arrows etc. Is there any way of forcing NVDA not to read certain modifier keys?

Very best wishes,
