State of key remapping for use of Windows through VMWare

macOS & 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.
