Re: There is something not right about this release of NVDA, but I can't put my finger on it

CONTROL was always the traditional command, although since SHIFT works (and sometimes as noted, more effectively) with eSpeak-NG and Windows OneCore at least, I've moved to recommending that more now.  Last I checked, it didn't work with some of the third party synths, but of course that is open to change as things get updated.

I have found in cases like that, SHIFT is often more immediate (with the advantage you can press it again to keep reading from where it stopped).
This just shows how much a creature of habit I have become.  Even though I have looked at the Commands Quick Reference I can't even count how many times and never noticed this, always using CTRL (or ESC, which has the same effect on speech - stopping it immediately).

I can easily see SHIFT becoming the go-to pause speech command, as the ability to pick up right where you paused [if the synthesizer supports same] is something that comes in incredibly handy in so many instances!

If you think that you can think about a thing, inextricably attached to something else, without thinking of the thing it is attached to, then you have a legal mind.
