Re: Pass next key through

Carlos Esteban Martínez Macías

Hi all.

For more information: In the sleep mode, NVDA Disable the Reading of the Window and only accept the command for Disable it. Keyboard layout desktop: NVDA+shift+s, Laptop NVDA+shift+z.

Yes, NVDA+f2 have the function of pass the key pressed after the command to Windows or the application.

I don't think there is such a feature available currently, unless that program has its own speech then you can activate the sleep mode with nvda+shift+z. 

Otherwise, the only option I see is that you press NVDA+f2 each time before the command.

good luck.

Hello again,


I will be using a program whose hotkeys may conflict with NVDA commands. Is it possible to set the Pass Next Key Through command to act as a toggle; i.e. to pass all commands to the other program until the Pass Next Key Through command is pressed again? I would like it to act as a toggle.


Thanks again,
