I want to see if these keys work properly using a different screen reader.

Hey madison.


Press some keys?

If I understand correctly – have you tried the JAWS key pass through command to do this?

Jaws key + 3.

Okay, all I want to do is press a couple of keys that don’t seem to work with Jaws, can I do this with Narrator?

the current build of windows 10 you start narrator  with keys Ctrl+windows key+enter

And you can turn it off, if it is on, with that same set of keystrokes, too.

If you've not invoked Narrator before the first time you do you will be presented with a "tour of narrator" dialog, called Narrator Home, which you can simply dismiss, or check the checkbox to never show it again, and then dismiss it.

Other bits about Narrator can be found in Settings, Ease of Access, Narrator Pane.  It's worth taking a look there as you can configure certain things, such as turning off Narrator Home among other things, about its behavior.
