State of key remapping for use of Windows through VMWare

macOS and Mac Apps

Hello folks,

How is the state of remapping keys to use as NVDA key when running Windows on a Mac VM?

My questions are:

1- I will probably be using a desktop keyboard attached to a mac via USB. I need to use the caps lock key as NVDA key if possible or if its not then the insert key itself will also work.

I need the ctrl and alt keys to map to the ctrl and alt keys of the physical usb keyboard.

How can I do this mapping?

This can be done using Karabiner elements, which can be downloaded here:
I use a custom rule to remap capslock within fusion to the "help" key, which NVDA accepts. Let me know if you need that.
