On laptops that have either a touch screen multimedia control panel or multimedia control buttons, nvda will not speak the keys when they are pressed or there effect. this is especially concerning for totally blind users as they won't know that they have hit a key until an application pops up, wich often causes nvda to falter for a moment.

this is the patch I've compiled after implementing support for multimedia keys. a few notes: 1. nvda will not speak the volume keys, even though those keys are included in my modifications. 2. there are some aditional keys, such as keys for opening your web browser and launching special applications. these keys are included. 3. you must have speak command keys enabled for this to work.
