Re: Something missing from the NVDA menu?

Hi Sharon,
 
Are you saying that when you press akey whether it's the, Alt key, down arrow, up arrow or Tab, this what you're hearing instead of the options or whatever you might be navigating? 
 
If so, you can press, NVDA key + 4, on the number row above the main keyboard to toggle the speaking of command keys like arrow, tab and other  keys on and off.
 
Or, if you press, NVDA key + N, for the NVDA menu then press, P, for preferences and press, S, for settings
 
Now down arrow to, Keyboard, and tab to, speak command keys, and uncheck this checkbox.  Tab to, Okay, press enter and make sure to save your settigngs.

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

I can't tell which option I'm on when I hear just keys.
