Yes. This would work. But I want the same, convenient way of reading the date without leaving the application I am working in, but from my Braille keyboard.
If I use Windows+b, I am taken out of the application and have to get back to it using Alt+tab.
Thanks for the input.

Emne: Re: [nvda] How can I get the date from a Braille display?
I cannot completely vouch for this working with a braille display as I am only just getting to grips with this myself but using a qwerty keyboards windows B and arrowing until focus is on the clock will announce not just
the time but the date with speech in NVDA.
I hope that you get the same result with a braille display.
On a laptop keyboard, I am able to get the date by pressing NVDA F12 twice quickly.
On my Freedom Scientific Focus40 Blue, I can’t seem to do two presses quickly of NVDA+F12. The second press of F12 just sends an F12 through and I get the Save As dialog.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
