Add the ability to use insert or caps lock in Narrator

I'd like to see an option under Narrator's general settings pane to use caps lock, numpad insert or extended insert as the Narrator modifyer key. For some reason, I'm finding that only using caps lock as modifyer to be a bit wonky. Indeed, I'm coming from Jaws and NVDA, so this may be a newby's foyble, but this would make my transition that much more smooth.

    THis is an interesting request. It makes sense in that it would make the transition from JAWS or NVDA easier for users. We’ll pass this on to our product team and let you know when this becomes available.

        I like have one LED ON/OFF in Caps Lock and visual alert in vídeo screen. I´m work with 5050 keyboard.

        I completely agree. I like having the capslock key as a Narrator modifier, but it would be advantageous to allow the user the ability to change that to the extended insert key, the numpad insert key, or a combination of any or all of the three. Great suggestion!
