hello James:
 
In Windows 7, when you press WINDOWS KE+U, you open the Windows Access Centre. When you tab to the "Start Narrator" button and press SPACE BAR, to activate it, not only do you activate Narrator, but Narrator starts each time Windows starts.
 
If Laura follows my suggestion, it would prevent that from happening.

For windows 7, control windows u will bring up several choices, and you must alt tab back and forth  to draw attention to speech. Hope this helps.

I don't care what the MS site says.  Windows key-Enter does not toggle Narrator on and off in Windows 7, at least not on my HP desktop.  I don't think there is any way to toggle it on and off in Windows 7 like there is with the  Windows 10 shortcut key  Control-Windows key-Enter.

Hello Richard:

 

I tried WINDOW KEY+ENTER, on a machine running Windows 7, it did not work.

Sorry, you are right.

Here is what the Microsoft site says:

On a keyboard, press the Windows logo key + Enter.

This will both start and stop narrator.

 

The control key was added in Windows 10.

Control+Windows-key+Enter.

That is the toggle for Narrator, whether you start it from the edit box or if you start and stop it with that keystroke.

Hello Laura:

 

To start Narrator in the current session of Windows 7 but, not have it start each time Windows 7 starts, Tap either WINDOWS KEY, type "narrator" (without the quotes), then press ENTER.

Bill,

 

Thank you for the info.  Narrator came on but it didn’t help.  When I pressed tab, narrator would say tab and when I pressed up or down arrow it would say up arrow or down arrow.  Jaws won’t speak on that computer and I thought narrator might help me figure out why.  That computer has Windows 7 and Jaws 16.  I guess I’ll have to wait until I have sighted help available to tell me what’s on the screen and get Jaws speaking.

Hi, Laura. There isn’t one shortcut in Windows 7 to turn on Narrator. Try the following:

 

1. Press Windows key plus U

2. Press ALT plus N.

3. Press ENTER.
