NVDA menu


Robert Doc Wright godfearer
 

Is there another way to open the menu other than insert+n? I am working with a lady whose hands are broken so that it is difficult to do many of the key commands. When she tries to press caps loc n I think she accidently hits another key before releasing and it kicks the window right out again. We have been trying to get remote setup so that I can finish setting things up.

Robert, 1 thing you may wish to try is to go to "Ease of Access", then
click the "Make the keyboard easier to use" link. Now, click the
"setup sticky keys" & configure them in the way that's best for your
friend.

Sticky Keys that Jackie suggested, lets you press key combinations one key at a time.  So instead of pressing ALT+F4 together to close a window, you press alt, let it go, then press F4 and let it go.  When Sticky keys is enabled, the NVDA key becomes sticky, so you can press caps lock, let it go, then press n and the NVDA menu will open.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Can she access the system tray?  If the Windows key b command is difficult for some reason, she can go to the desktop and shift tab twice. 
 
You can also access the system tray icons by installing the system tray add-on and using insert, either insert, f11 to open the system tray dialog.  However you work with the system tray, you can open the NVDA menu from there.  Use the right click command in the system tray itself, the context menu key.  Just pressing that key opens the menu.  You may not hear any indication that it is opened, but if you down arrow, you will see all the items in the menu.
 
In the system tray dialog, if you are on NVDA, you can either tab to the right click button and press the space bar, or use the command alt r.

Space may be easier, as its a larger key.

You might also look into some of the voice control stuff. Can't
Dictation Bridge do commands? Or is that something in Windows? I thought
there was some way to have Windows execute commands when you yell at it,
but I haven't looked into it. But if there is, I'll bet you could set
something up to get at the menu with it.

My wife had the solution that worked just fine. You go to NVDA in the system tray winkey+b

Press space on notification shevron

Arrow to NVDA and press the space bar

Then you can arrow to preferences, tools….

I'm not sure how WINDOWS+B is easier than NVDA+n, but I'm glad you found a solution which worked :)

Re the notification chevron, you can make that part of the sequence a little easier by going into Windows settings (not sure which version of Windows here?) and setting it to always show all notification items.  In Windows 10, the settings page is called "Select which icons appear on the taskbar" (type that into the Start menu search to find it).  Then you can skip the notification chevron - press WINDOWS+B to move to the notification area, then arrow to any notification icon.

Note, that this seems to be one of those settings that Microsoft sometimes helpfully resets for us during Windows updates.

I set it while I was still on 1809, and before I even upgraded to 1903, it had turned itself back off again.

I guess MS figured I couldn't possibly have meant it.

Sticky Keys that Jackie suggested, lets you press key combinations one key at a time.  So instead of pressing ALT+F4 together to close a window, you press alt, let it go, then press F4 and let it go.  When Sticky keys is enabled, the NVDA key becomes sticky, so you can press caps lock, let it go, then press n and the NVDA menu will open.

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.

Robert, 1 thing you may wish to try is to go to "Ease of Access", then
click the "Make the keyboard easier to use" link. Now, click the
"setup sticky keys" & configure them in the way that's best for your
friend.
