I don't understand. Please be clearer about the problem. NVDA is written in all capitals as it always is.

Hi, I've seen places in the User Guide wair NVDA is ritten as nvda, not as NVDA as it should be. Such as: You can also get to the NVDA menu via the windows system tray. Either right-click on the nvda icon located in the system tray, or access the system tray by pressing the windows logo key+B, DownArrow to the NVDA icon and press the applications key located next to the right control key on most keyboards. When the menu comes up, You can use the arrow keys to navigate the menu, and the enter key to activate an item. And I've seen parts of the User Guide ritten like that?

Cool thanks so much but how about the following errar that I found as well? In the section 5.2 Navigating with the System Focus you have the following: Report title NVDA+t Reports the title of the currently active window. Pressing twice will spell the information. Pressing thrice will copy it to the clipboard. Should be Three times

Thrice is a valid English word, so this isn't an error.

But what does that word mean in this sentents? Here is the sentents again. In the section 5.2 Navigating with the System Focus you have the following: Report title NVDA+t Reports the title of the currently active window. Pressing twice will spell the information. Pressing thrice will copy it to the clipboard. This is what I think it should say: In the section 5.2 Navigating with the System Focus you have the following: Report title NVDA+t Reports the title of the currently active window. Pressing twice will spell the information. Pressing three times will copy it to the clipboard. I think this makes more sence than the first sentents?

Thrice means three times. You can check a dictionary if you disagree.

No I don't disagree with you, but as like me, I would think that most people wouldn't understand that word, so I'm just calling for this to be fixed so there isn't any confusion. With that word.

This is not a particularly complex word. The context and structure of the word should be enough to allow people to figure it out even if they don't know it. Unless Mick disagrees with me on this, it will not be changed.

thrice was eliminated previously and replaced with three times, this particular instance seems to have slipped the net, and is the only instance in the whole userguide.

It is also quite an uncommon word in the english language (old).
Have replaced with "three times" to match all our other instances.

There's also an instance for the same command in globalCommands.py.
