I have an opinion about why I don’t consider the feature useful to
me. I don’t have an opinion about the question asked nor do I assume how
other people use the feature and what they may think of it, though I suspect
some people don’t use it because of excessive verbosithy so that is an
opinion. I didn’t clearly say that I don’t have an opinion about the

thought you didn’t have an opinion. It sounds like you have pretty strong
opinions about this to me.

I don’t have an opinion. The behavior does occur but I don’t know
if it matters to people. I never use the command because it is so
intrusive. Every down arrow is spoken, every control left and right
arrow is spoken and lots of other commands. If I want to move to the
right three words in a document, I hear control right arrow every time I issue
A far more important question may be, who uses this command and why is it
important. Would more people use it and find it useful if it were much
more limited, such as if it announced home, end, tab, and such keys but not
the amount of verbiage the command results in when it is on?

I would like your opinion on what I see.
I checked the
"Speak command keys" checkbox in the NVDA "keyboard" settings.
When I type
"nvda + F12", I can hear the command.
But when I type "nvda + F1" or "nvda
+ control + k", I don't fully hear the command. The window that opens stops
the announcement of the command key.
I think this is not normal and that
the command should be heard also in these cases.
