I can't find the Screencast Keys which allow me to start the display. I have tried the right hand pop-up menu using the hotkey N, but I could not find the Screencast Keys menu which is usually located under the Transform orientations rollout.

Screencast keys is now an external addon (it was formerly distributed with blender, but has since been removed). To use it:

  1. download it (RMB RMB > Save Link As… in most browsers, to save it as a .py file)

  2. Click install from file in ⎈ Ctrl⎇ AltU>User preferences > Addons:

  3. Select the downloaded file:

  4. Enable it:

If you want it to stay enabled after quitting blender, be sure to click Save User Settings.
