It provides a script without gesture, which allows to retrieve and give the language of the current keyboard.




To set a gesture to the script giving the keyboard language, follow these steps:

  • Open the NVDA's menu, with "NVDA + N";
  • Go to NVDA's preferences menu;
  • Then go to the submenu "Input gestures".
  • Then select the category "Input", and open it with right arrow.
  • Go to the item labeled "Gives the language of the keyboard in use, if pressed twice, give the default language of the system";
  • Once done, press Alt + A to add a gesture, and type "NVDA + F4" or another gesture of your choice;
  • This done, press the up arrow once, you hear "your chosen gesture, all layout";
  • Validate on enter, then tab to OK then enter;
  • Your chosen gesture should then call the script giving keyboard language.
