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.

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.

I think it would be easier to press Windows+r, type narrator and press
the enter key. to get rid of Narrator, just press the exit button in the
Narrator window, and then press space bar on the yes button..

in addition to the above, pressing Windows+u and then alt+n started
Narrator, but exiting Narrator still required alt+tabbing to the
Narrator window and pressing space bar on the exit button. and then
pressing space bar on the yes button.

pressing Windows+enter applied to the earlier versions of Windows 10,
and eventually was changed to control+Windows+enter in later versions of
Windows 10 as to expand and improve Narrator's capabilities.

Good luck!  I had much trouble with turning it off.  Nothing worked.  I felt like a Christian scientist with appendicitis.  I decided not to use it any more.

Hello Laura:
 
If you are not at the Windows 7 Desktop, Press WINDOWS KEY+M, to minimize all open program windows and give focus to the Desktop.
 
Once the Desk Top has focus, press ALT+TAB, until the Narrator window is announced.
 
Release the ALT Key, which will give the Narrator window focus.
 
Tap the TAB key, until Narrator announces the Exit button. Press ENTER, to activate the button. By default, The focus is on the "Yes" Button. Press ENTER, to activate the button. Narrator is then unloaded.

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 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.

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.

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.

Yes, Windows key-U has always worked in Windows 7 to launch Narrator, but this is not a toggle. You have to tab to the exit button to turn it off.  In Windows 10, you can ttoggle Narrator on and off at will by pressing Control-Windows key-Enter.

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.

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.
