Thanks, Brian. Except for table navigation commands and the single letter shortcut keys for HTML documents NVDA is a bit more consistent in that almost all other NVDA commands involve using the NVDA modifier key. I personally don’t mind that Vispero occasionally plays a bit fast and loose with this rule but I could see how a user could get confused thinking that the command to bring up a list of spelling errors is a Word command and then wondering why it’s not working at all if they switch to using NVDA.

David,

One of my favorite quotations that makes an occasional appearance as my signature:

    A sensible person realizes that all principles that can be expressed in a statement of finite length are oversimplified.

          ~ Robert Heppe

Heaven knows when it comes to trying to make generalities about software that observation is absolutely true.  I'm really glad that you caught what I was trying to do was cover what are "general rules" that do have exceptions, but you can usually figure out when you've got one going on (e.g., the single letter browsing commands, which work only in the screen reader, and nowhere else).
