Re: Changing speech rate not working
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
To double check what Tyler suggested - if you press NVDA+1 to turn on "Input help", every key or set of keys you press gets read out (rather than doing whatever it normally does) - if you press an NVDA keystroke, such as NVDA+shift+control+down arrow, NVDA will read out the keys AND what function they do. If your keyboard is only recognising some of the keys, it should read out something like CONTROL+SHIFT+DOWN ARROW or NVDA+SHIFT+DOWN ARROW etc.
Press NVDA+1 to turn input help off again.
Note that you can also adjust speech settings such as rate from NVDA's settings screen. Press NVDA+control+v to open the settings directly to the speech / voice settings and tab through that screen to the option you want to change.

Try using caps lock instead of insert, or the other insert key.
