Re: Shortcut commands stopping working in NVDA

Curtis Delzer

happens to me also, and in my case all NVDA commands such as shutting down, 'NVDA+N, for getting into the menus, all is non responsive, so I just re-start NVDA which always fixes it.
control-alt-N is not non-responsive since it is a system command, not one internal to NVDA.

If this is a hardware issue why does restarting NVDA fix the issue?

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.
