I don’t know but enter is what screen-readers generally say if you have
them set to speak such keys.

you Dina, Gene, and Brian for all your suggestions. I am curious at to what the
technical barriers exist for NVDA being unable to simply say ‘New Line’
for the enter key. Is it because of the lookahead it has to perform for the
‘line feed’ character? If that is the case, I would still be happy if it said
‘carriage return’ like it does when I move up and down lines in my Wordpad file.
out the NVDA global commands extension... it allows you to turn individual
keys on and off.
wouldn’t mind having the “Speak commands’ turned on when in Wordpad but
elsewhere it gets annoying! I wish there was a command to quickly turn ‘Speak
commands’ on and off.
not, I will have to get used to the silence. :)

NVDA doesn’t speak
any command keys by default. You already know what happens when you
turn speak command keys on.
You may find that
you quickly get used to not hearing enter. You may expect it since you
evidently have heard it in the past but giving not hearing it a chance for
perhaps a few days or a week may get you used to not hearing it and it may
not matter any longer.
I believe the option
should be available. People should be able to choose which command
keys they hear, but since I know of no way they can, if you get used to not
hearing it quickly, the problem may not matter

Good to hear from you again
after a long time. :)
Thank you Sarah. But you have no idea as to why
NVDA does not speak the enter key on Wordpad?

recommend Jarte. It is no longer being made, but it is one of my favorite
programs to use for an RTF editor and a docx viewer.

[nvda] NVDA speechless on the enter key in Wordpad
> Hello all,
worked on the Mac with Voiceover for many years, I am a newbie to Windows
and NVDA which I am learning through the user guide and enjoying it.
> A RTF editor is a must for
what I do and I chose Wordpad (I will welcome ideas for any better
NVDA-accessible and free editors). I don’t know what setting would
make NVDA speak the enter key whenever I move to a new line. Setting the
‘Speak commands’ option on does speak it but speaks all other commands I
press in the process.
