+1 for keyboard only control, the whole concept makes no sense without that.

However, the issues with finding the "insert manual brake..." command may be because in this instance it is "break" not "brake" That highlights another issue though. What happens when the user misspells words? should we use a spell-checker to guess possible alternatives to the words used? The trouble here is that brake is spelt correctly, it is just the wrong word.

Does anyone know if the HUD uses Levenshtein distance?
If so I would have thought that "insert manual brake..." should find "insert manual break..."

Hi all, I'm testing hud with libreoffice. It is a great idea, even if
doesn't work properly. Infact for example it is difficult to ask it
"insert manual brake...". Surely it should be addressed to the
commands in libreoffice.

Another important question: in my opinion HUD is great since it allows
to use keyboard, withoud using mouse. So it NEEDS that with arrows up
down you can select items. How can it be usefull if, after pressing
ALT and writing a choice, you need to put your hand ouf from the
keyboard, take the mouse, move the mouse-arrow, select, again put your
hand on the keyboard? It is very inefficient in my opinion.
