Re: Shortcut commands stopping working in NVDA

It’s not sticking keys. It happens on my keyboard as well, and on my laptop keys as well. I already submitted a lot of logs on a github page, I think in regard to this. Narrator will even stick as well. The only way is to reboot, or do the left shift right shift, control, etc.

This is not anything new, now we need to figure out why this happens.

I say the following not to be snarky, but if it is actually sticking keys, we already know why this happens.

Another good thing, and dirt cheap, is to obtain a USB keyboard (and thrift stores are loaded with them, fully functional) to keep "as the testing spare" and check if the issue persists, when it occurs, on a different keyboard that's available for the machine.

If the shortcuts work immediately when you use the alternative keyboard, and consistently, you know you have a hardware issue of some sort with your primary keyboard.  While these are, relatively speaking, rare they are far from never happening.

Yep.  Discipline.  Accountability.  Joy.  Fun.  Responsibility.

That's what life is about.  And in that order.
