If you check Activate voice the program also speak the current object name to the computer speaker so you can use this function without looking at the screen, you can even power off the screen, to preserve your night vision

This form is configured to stay on top of the other to maximize the chance it get your key press. But it is alway possible it loss focus because another application go on top, in this case you may have to power the screen to click on the Tour form to get the focus again.
