Re: bug or feature? alt+F4 doesn't close speech viewer

Quentin Christensen

This is a known issue.  I created an issue for it last year:

The speech viewer window can still be closed by pressing alt+n, t, s again, or by using the shortcut key (if you have defined a shortcut key to toggle speech viewer). Creating a shortcut for speech viewer (in NVDA's input gestures dialog) is recommended for users who frequently toggle this feature on and off.

Kind regards

Hi all.

You need go to the NVDA menu, tools, speech viewer and the window is closed.

Asunto: [nvda] bug or feature? alt+F4 doesn't close speech viewer


Hi all,

I don't use speech viewer all that often, but as my last message

indicated, I find it useful for testing things. That being said, when

I'm done testing, the only way to close speech viewer seems to be to

restart NVDA. Is this a bug or was this done on purpose? I've tried

both alt+F4 and control+W with no luck.
