Re: Add-on Input Lock when NVDA Keyboard Help is enabled

Sure. But why would it be a problem if the Input Lock add­on also blocked the track­pad when in Keyboard Help mode?

This is a difficult one. I understand why it would be helpful, but at the same time the expectation is that with keyboard help mode on, NVDA commands will not carry out their intended function.

I am using the Input Lock add-on with a user who is learning to
touch-type. The idea is to block the touch pad from moving the cursor
or mouse pointer.

Now, when NVDA's keyboard help is enabled, I notice the track pad does
move the mouse pointer, hence my question:

Is it possible to have Input Lock blocking the mouse when keyboard
help Is enabled? This would really be of benefit to a new user who
needs to explore the keyboard without the fear of doing something
wrong on the keyboard or in other ways.

Thanks for this great add-on.
