Re: loss of nvda hot keys

Pranav Lal

Hi all,


I can reproduce this with a fair degree of consistency.

  1. Use the program keypass 2.
  2. Copy and paste some user names and passwords into chrome or firefox.
  3. After about 10 to 15 instances of copy and pasting credentials, NVDA’s hotkeys should fail to respond. The best way to check this is to see if the nvda key + q exits nvda. If it does not, you know that the hotkeys are stuck.


You then have to restart nvda for the functionality to be restored.

I'm not familiar with the keys suddenly stopping - do you know, is there an issue on GitHub for this?


Firstly, have you restarted your PC after updating NVDA?  And are you using any add-ons?
