No you do not have to listen to all of it first as long
as when you open the about section it starts to read
press the ctrl key.
Check which keyboard layout you are using press the
nvda key + ctrl key + the letter K.
It will open the keyboard settings it should land on
your keyboard layout.
Mine speaks desktop so then you just close it
If you already know the keyboard layout miss the above
Make sure you are in object navigation mode first use
the nvda key + number 1 on the numeric keypad to do this
I am not sure what it is for the laptop version I would

case I would use the nvda key + 8 on the numeric keypad
to go up a level or the laptop command if in that
Then I would use the number 7 on the numeric keypad to

numeric keypad. It takes me up a level to

Hello everyone, when I
go into the NVDA menu, and click on manage
add-ons, and I go to about add-on, it reads
all the information all at once. Does anyone
know of a way to slow this down? Reading it by
words, lines, and characters doesn't work. I
only need a little bit of information, and
that's at the end of all of the information
that it gives me.--
