Re: Reducing the reading speed of NVDA

The voice rate this way increments or decrements by 5 levels. Any way to do it just by one level without going to settings?
I am a laptop user thus using NVDA + Shift + Ctrl + Up/down arrow.
Before I answer your question, I want to make you aware of one of the handiest commands for a new NVDA user when it comes to finding the keyboard shortcuts used to control the vast majority of "commonly used" features: NVDA+N,H,Q (which is INS+N,H,Q in desktop keyboard layout) will cause the Commands Quick Reference to open in your default web browser. The question you're asking is about one of the common features/tweaks, and the keyboard shortcuts for changing the reading rate, is found there under Synth Settings Ring, copied here:
Synth settings ring
|Move to next synth setting
||Moves to the next available speech setting after the current, wrapping around to the first setting again after the last
|Move to previous synth setting
||Moves to the next available speech setting before the current, wrapping around to the last setting after the first
|Increment current synth setting
||increases the current speech setting you are on. E.g. increases the rate, chooses the next voice, increases the volume
|Decrement current synth setting
||decreases the current speech setting you are on. E.g. decreases the rate, chooses the previous voice, decreases the volume
You'd have to get yourself to the speech rate for your chosen synth using one or the other of the first two commands, then increment/increase or decrement/decrease the rate using the third and fourth commands, respectively.
