Re: Slow NVDA responses in ribbons

I’m running NVDA 2016/4 with Office 2016 and can’t see any sluggish behavior when navigating the ribbons in Excel or Word. It is all superfast for me.

Subject: [nvda] Slow NVDA responses in ribbons


I’ve written before about having sluggish NVDA feedback when navigating ribbons in MS Word and MS Excel. I’m running the Windows 10 Anniversary and had been using Office 2010. When I press the Alt key to go to the ribbon or when I arrow between ribbon tabs, I frequently have a 4 to 10 second delay before I get NVDA auditory feedback saying where I am. I thought this might be an Office 2010/NVDA compatibility issue so I upgraded to Office 2016. I’m still having the same problem. I have my PC’s Power setting on high. I 'experienced the problem with the latest version of NVDA. Someone suggested I try an earlier version so I uninstalled the latest version and installed the prior version (I believe it was 8.3). No improvement.


I really would like to use and support NVDA but can’t do it unless I can get quicker auditory feedback when navigating in the ribbon. Also have frequent issues with NVDA going silent. As I recall, I can Alt/Tab out and back into the document I’m working on and NVDA will start talking again.


Any thoughts or suggestions? Are other people having these issues? Thanks.
