I always liked NVDA+a and don't find it awkward at all, but then
again I use the caps lock as my NVDA modifier key, and "a" is
right next to it. :)

NVDA, A was awkward, but I’m used to it now. I should go
check What’s New after any update. I’ve done it, but there
are so many new steps that I usually can’t find what I’m
looking for. Maybe I’m just a lazy old thing. Lololol.

If you have NVDA setup in laptop
keyboard layout, then NVDA+A should still work for say
all. If you are using NVDA in desktop keyboard layout,
then the keystroke is NVDA+down arrow.

that first and see if it comes back again.

I've only noticed one thing so far, and it's not
necessarily a bad thing either, just something new
to adjust to. The pauses after periods are shorter.

become accustomed to with time, and isn't

NV Access is pleased to announce that version
2020.3 of NVDA, the free screen reader for
Microsoft Windows, is now available for download.
We encourage all users to upgrade to this version.
NVDA 2020.3 includes several large improvements
to stability and performance, particularly in
Microsoft Office applications. There are new
settings to toggle touchscreen support and
graphics reporting. The existence of marked
(highlighted) content can be reported in browsers,
and there are new German braille tables.
Please note, after updating any software, it is a
good idea to restart the computer. Restart by
going to the Shutdown dialog, selecting “restart”
and pressing ENTER. Updating software can change
files which are in use. This can lead to
instability and strange behaviour which is
resolved by rebooting. This is the first thing to
try if you do notice anything odd after updating.
While downloading NVDA, please consider becoming
