bug or feature? alt+F4 doesn't close speech viewer


Bob Cavanaugh
 

Hi all,
I don't use speech viewer all that often, but as my last message
indicated, I find it useful for testing things. That being said, when
I'm done testing, the only way to close speech viewer seems to be to
restart NVDA. Is this a bug or was this done on purpose? I've tried
both alt+F4 and control+W with no luck.

Hi all.

You need go to the NVDA menu, tools, speech viewer and the window is closed.

Regards.

This is a known issue.  I created an issue for it last year: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/10791

The speech viewer window can still be closed by pressing alt+n, t, s again, or by using the shortcut key (if you have defined a shortcut key to toggle speech viewer). Creating a shortcut for speech viewer (in NVDA's input gestures dialog) is recommended for users who frequently toggle this feature on and off.

Kind regards

Quentin.
