NVDA keyboard list


heather albright
 

Hello, does anyone know where I can find a file for NVDA commands. I am working with a person and they find the guide overwhelming that comes in the NVDA user guide. I wish they would just have all the commands separated.  I know why they did the guide like they did by listing all the commands touch, laptop and desktop. But, this person just wants the commands for a desktop and not all the other info. They are very overwhelmed with to much info and they do not know how to skip the info they do not need.

I do not want them to be discouraged and I want them to use their computer. If anyone knows where I can find  an NVDA command file list, please let me know. Thank you, Heather

Perhaps you can find what you want, but I don't know how likely that is. Have you looked at the quick Reference Guide for commands? It just lists commands. It lists commands in a specific order, for each command, the desktop one is given first.

But how is the person going to use the computer? Only a small number of commands may be needed. Read to end, Read title bar, quit, Run NVDA, adjust speed of speech commands, and the quick navigation commands for browsing, or perhaps only a small number of them. You may do best to make a list yourself or, if you tell us how the person is going to use the computer, we can make a list. Most of what a lot of people do is not using screen-reader commands, but Windows and program commands. the commands I've mentioned above may be about all that a lot of users will use.

I really object to what I've seen of this list. it mixes Windows commands with screen-reader commands and doesn't indicate or explain the difference.
For example, say next carachter is given as right arrow or numpad 3. These are completely different commands. Right arrow is a windows movement command when working with an application cursor. Numpad 3 is an NVDA command. it moves within the object or in review mode and doesn't move you in the document. Right arrow moves you in the document and announces where you have moved. This is not the way NVDA commands should be presented. NVDA commands are not Windows or program commands and they should be given as completely separate commands and program commands should not be included in such lists.

Yes, guess I should create one for her. That is why I was not wanting to point her to a site as they mix their key command list and do not say they are a windows command an an NVDA command, windows does not get the credit. So maybe they should say windows keyboard commands with NVDA instead of NVDA commands. Thak you all for your help! Cheers Heather

I'm not saying this to comment on whether you should make your own list, but it should be noted that the Quick Command Reference in NVDA help doesn't list windows or program commands. All commands are NVDA commands.
