My computer has stopped talking, what do I do?

A common cause of this problem is that the speech on yur screenreader has been paused.

Here are the shortcuts to resume speech on the most popular screenreaders:

  1. JAWS: Insert + down arrow
  2. NVDA: The shift key resumes speech if it was paused, or you can toggle Speech Mode using NVDA modifier key + s (by default, the NVDA modifier key is the Insert key).
  3. Supernova: Left Control + 0 [Alt + Control + 0]
  4. VoiceOver: Command-F5.
