It should be noted that insert f1 places you in a key describer function. Press any key or combination of keys and you will hear a brief description of the command, if any. If no command corresponds to the key or combination, you may simply hear something like the letter or number spoken. You probably have to be in the program you want to work with for program specific commands to be announced. Just systematically going through different combinations, such as insert and each letter or function key or number key will teach you a lot. Or in some programs such as Internet Explorer, just pressing every letter of the alphabet will teach you a lot. From the little playing around I've done, it appears that the key describer will only announce commands that are specific to NVDA. For example, pressing tab while in Internet Explorer won't tell you anything. this is an Internet Explorer command. Typing the letter k will tell you something because that is a command in NVDA.
