Re: NVDA announcing shortcut keys

David Goldfield

Pressing NVDA-ctrl-R isn't always a guarantee that you'll be able to revert back to a previous setting as a user could have saved a configuration, exited and then later restarted NVDA. In that case relying on the keystroke to revert to the previously saved configuration won't work.

Thanks this is the correct place to disable shortcut keys. I don't know what keystroke I accidently hit to mess up my settings. I will remember the insert control r for the next time these old stiff fingers hit the wrong keys.

Even if that is the applicable setting, you can see why using
control+NVDA+r is so much more convenient and efficient.

NVDA 4 is speak command keys on and off.  that isn't related to
