Re: keyboard shortcut to launch speech viewer in NVDA?

Wow, I'm a huge keyboard user but never thought about finding a shortcut to
turn on the speech viewer. Great question. I've always used the NVDA menu
shortcut key, Ins+N, and from doing it so often I know I arrow down twice
(to tools), then arrow right to expand, then arrow down once to speech
viewer. It's kind of muscle memory now. It's not exactly a single
shortcut key but it does let you turn it on using the keyboard.
