Re: Problems with capslock as NVDA modifier


When the caps lock key is activated here, I gget a message saying caps lock on. I get a message saying caps lock off when I turn it off. I'm not sure why you aren't hearing a message. Also, NVDA emits a sound if the caps lock is on and you type a carachter holding down the shift key to alert you that it is on in case it is unintentionally on.

I'll say this though I imagine you know it, but not knowing what you know, I don't want to assume. Be careful not to press the key twice quickly, since that turns caps lock on and off.

If you don't hear the beep I described nor hear any spoken announcement, I'm not sure why, but let the list know.

Subject: [nvda] Problems with capslock as NVDA modifier

Hello all,

I am using the latest NVDA with Windows 10 2004 on a laptop. I have the capslock set as the NVDA modifier. Occasionally the capslock key will activate and I end up typing in all caps. I have no way of knowing this. I’ve checked the NVDA settings to be sure the capslock is set as the modifier and it is. Any suggestions?
