Re: Pausing nvda...

Hi List,

Maybe I've missed some posts on thisthread.
The simplest way to pause and resume nvda reading is to press the shift key,
like a toggle, off and on.
It works.

Another? As in: other than speech mode off, which does exactly that?

Or, do you mean a command that will do what speech mode off does, but also
globally disable keyboard intercept as sleep mode does for an application?
If you want that, I don't know of anything, but then I can't imagine why
having that would be easier than unloading NVDA.

Setting your speech synth to "No speech" will do something similar to speech
mode off, and I suppose you can do that with a profile, which you can't do
with sleep mode.
