Re: loss of shortcut keys

Quentin Christensen

I just commented on the linked issue, not sure if it's useful, but what I said was:

"As you noted in the log, at one point, eery keystroke includes the Windows key.  I have had keyboards in the past where they seemed to get a modifier key stuck down (shift, alt or control, etc) - in that case, what I did was very technical, but basically I just kept pressing the offending key quickly  and repeatedly until say a dozen times in a couple of seconds and it usually sorted itself out.  If you try that with the Windows key when this happens does it make a difference?

Otherwise, a log with add-ons disabled would really help confirm this is NOT caused by an add-on."

And Gene, it's still worth reporting issues in Windows 7.  Obviously if the issue ends up being with Windows itself, you're probably not going to get much resolution, but NVDA still supports Windows 7, so we are willing to look Windows 7 issues (and for an issue like this, if we confirmed that it happens across Windows versions is potentially useful)

i had this issue for awhile, but thanks God, i found a workarround for it.
when nvda keyes dont work, do the following.
1. press nvda plus q.
2. nvda exit dialog options are in the background.
3. press alt plus tab to find the dialog box.
4. press scape to close it.
in normal cases, when you press nvda plus q, nvda dialog box is
available and you can navigate immediately instead of using alt tab.

By God,
were I given all the seven heavens
with all they contain
in order that
I may disobey God
by depriving an ant
from the husk of a grain of barley,
I would not do it.
