    How to Turn On or Off Activate Keys on Touch Keyboard when Lift Finger for Narrator in Windows 10


    Narrator is a screen-reading app built into Windows 10.

    Narrator lets you use your PC without a display or mouse to complete common tasks if youre blind or have low vision. It reads and interacts with things on the screen, like text and buttons. Use Narrator to read and write email, browse the internet, and work with documents.

    Specific commands let you navigate Windows, the web, and apps, as well as get info about the area of the PC you're in. Navigation is available using headings, links, landmarks, and more. You can read text (including punctuation) by page, paragraph, line, word, and character as well as determine characteristics like font and text color. Efficiently review tables with row and column navigation.

    Narrator also has a navigation and reading mode called Scan Mode. Use it to get around Windows 10 using just the up and down arrows on your keyboard. You can also use a braille display to navigate your PC and read text.

    When in an editing area (ex: text box) while typing by touch, a touch keyboard will appear in the lower part of the screen and Narrator will play a sound to indicate that a keyboard has appeared. To enter text, double-tap the characters you want to enter.

    To enter text more quickly, you can turn on the On the touch keyboard, activate keys when I lift my finger Narrator setting to enter characters as soon as you lift your finger off the character on the touch keyboard.

    Narrator Keyboard Shortcuts to turn On/Off not working


    Hi, first, the hotkeys are disabled if you have ever ticked the checkbox & No in the initial pop-up dialogue when Narrator starts.

    This says these can be enabled again in Narrator's general settings. I've not found that yet.

    Second, you can set Narrator to launch automatically in Settings:

    Turn On Activate Keys on Touch Keyboard when Lift Finger for Narrator [​IMG]


    Third, you could turn Narrator on like this:
    Type
    Narra in Cortana's search box.

    Click
    Narrator
    (first find at top in Cortana's window).

    Fourth, you could do this to start it:
    Windows key + R, type
    Narrator
    <return key>

    Turn On Activate Keys on Touch Keyboard when Lift Finger for Narrator

    NArrator won't turn off

    If Narrator only activates in Minecraft, it is not Windows Narrator. There is a setting in Minecraft that activates a voice and sounds. Look at the help files for turning it off. Or check at the Gaming Forum as suggested..
