Gestures, but you'll have to assign each one, and it asks you to enter
the gesture (which you need a keyboard for, though the tablet's built-in
keyboard might work).
If NVDA crashes, you can't simply press alt+ctrl+n like you can on a
regular keyboard to restart it, since NVDA is handling the Orbit Writer.
You'd have to restart it from the tablet.
