Re: unable to disable add ons for a given config profile?

Oh, the nvda modifier has to be included when reassigning the gestures? I have not had a need to go in there, until today. I'll play with it maybe after work or so as that is coming up in a few hours and I kind of need to be ready.

You can go into the Input Gestures dialog and reassign any key you want.
Simply go in and redefine the speech history keys to use the NVDA modifier and some other keys.

I don’t see how not having this feature makes sense, but ok? I’ll write up the report on my phone later today and see where it goes.

Happy Monday all.

I can’t do that because of the game I play, and the stuff I use. Is there a feature request on github about this. Right now I’m a bit lazy. I can look later when I get on my phone. Besides are not alt shift arrows used to read  stuff in windows if I recall? When I do that I hear “move below and move above” I’ll look at maybe reassigning those until you can disable addons in a config profile.

This is currently not possible, and it's not a bug. Your best solution is to reassign the gestures for the add-on until such functionality is possible. I don't even know why the add-on author didn't use shortcuts with the NVDA modifier key as opposed to Shift+F11, Shift+F12 and F12. Doing it this way will ensure that the shortcuts won't conflict with those used by application.

I assigned mine to Alt+NVDA+Up and Down Arrow for the  speech history, and NVDA+Alt+Period to copy the last spoken phrase.
