Provide option to allow key combinations to be pressed sequentially so that a user who can only use one finger can enter commands such as NVDA+q by pressing these keys one at a time. As some key commands use more than one modifier, e.g. NVDA+SHIFT+... the sequence should be considered complete when the first non-modifier key is pressed.

I also think that this is an important option. It's already implemented in other screen readers, and users witch depend on it can not migrate to NVDA, even if they want to.
I suggest a new option in keyboard settings dialog, a combobox that sets timeout for theNVDA key:
I think this is much more flexable and doesn't duplicate Windows functions.

This is a simple global plugin to emulate sticky NVDA key.

many thanks for this plugin.
really there are many who started to use it.
but one modification need to be done if you please.
can you write some lines that enable the users to set the insert key locked for a certain period of time?
many thanks again.

This implementation ties the sticky NVDA key to the Windows sticky keys functionality. If Windows sticky keys is enabled, the NVDA key will also be sticky. If modifier locking is enabled, the NVDA key will lock if pressed twice and unlock if pressed thrice.
Milestone changed from None to 2012.3
