Here is a correction about the Global Commands Extensions add-on and
portable versions. I said very recently that the Global Commands
Extensions add-on doesn't work fully in portable versions of NVDA.
That appears not to be true. I haven't tested it again because I'm
not sure if it will change settings I don't want changed, it does so
many things. And I don't know if everything changed is reverted if
I uninstall the add-on. But I just tried another add-on that hadn't
worked before in a portable copy of NVDA with no other add-ons
installed and it worked. An add-on was keeping it from working. I
think that is very likely the case with this add-on as well. I
think it is very likely to work fully if you try it in a portable
copy of NVDA unless you are running an add-on that interferes with
it. I didn't try to find out what add-on is causing the problem.

Global Commands Extensions.
You can download it from this page as well as read an extensive
description about the add-on.
It has a lot of capabilities. You may want to try it.

There is another add-on that announces cut, copy, and paste,
from what I've read. I don't recall the name and I'm not sure
what to search for. I did one search without success.
Someone else will likely provide the name. You may try that

A few days
ago, I downloaded the new version of ClipSpeak compatible with
the latest version of NVDA. Today, I noticed a problem. Things
would work fine for a while, and then, while in Chrome, I
wouldn't be able to switch between browse and forms mode. When
navigating through a list of items in my clipboard, pressing
the down and up arrow keys closes the clipboard instead of
moving to the next item in the list. Restarting NVDA
temporarily resolves the issue. After about the third or
fourth time of restarting NVDA, I finally disabled the add-on,
and now, everything works as it should.
I'm finding no way to email the developer except for the
address given in the About Add-On dialogue, to which I can't
seem to navigate. So, I'm posting this here in the hope he
sees it. I love the verbal feedback I get from ClipSpeak when
copying, pasting, etc. I hope this issue can be resolved.
