loading nvda not there


Joe Hunter <joehunter@...>
 

Hi all, since installing via the updater of version 18.1 and the current 18.1.1 the ability to load and unload keys of alt and ctrl plus n does not seem to work. Has this changed as when I open insert 1 to open help to determine what key does what, it does not appear to be there either. Joe

This is not a function of exactly but of the Windows explorer application. If you have a NVDA icon on your desktop and that icon has a shortcut key associated with it than the alt-control-N will work.

So, find the NVDA on the desktop, and then type control-enter to open its properties. Tab through the dialog until you hear shortcut and then type N followed by enter. At this point the keystroke should be working again. You can do equivalent process for other items on your desktop like Word or Mail, if you like.

Unless of course some other shortcut has hijacked the shortcut sequence. You can of course make it anything you want. I have = set up as narrator for example.

A minor correction to Jonathan's message.
We press alt + enter on a file or in this case, a shortcut, to get its properties, not the control key.
I like using shift + control for all my adaptive software shortcuts, I think it is easier for me than control + alt.
