Re: NVDA menu

I'm not sure how WINDOWS+B is easier than NVDA+n, but I'm glad you found a solution which worked :)

Re the notification chevron, you can make that part of the sequence a little easier by going into Windows settings (not sure which version of Windows here?) and setting it to always show all notification items.  In Windows 10, the settings page is called "Select which icons appear on the taskbar" (type that into the Start menu search to find it).  Then you can skip the notification chevron - press WINDOWS+B to move to the notification area, then arrow to any notification icon.

Quentin.

Sticky Keys that Jackie suggested, lets you press key combinations one key at a time.  So instead of pressing ALT+F4 together to close a window, you press alt, let it go, then press F4 and let it go.  When Sticky keys is enabled, the NVDA key becomes sticky, so you can press caps lock, let it go, then press n and the NVDA menu will open.

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.

Robert, 1 thing you may wish to try is to go to "Ease of Access", then
click the "Make the keyboard easier to use" link. Now, click the
"setup sticky keys" & configure them in the way that's best for your
friend.
