Re: NVDA Jumps Around Randomly

Hi gary

A couple of things come to mind.

One is the mouse could be on its way out. I had a mouse even when not
touched would move across the screen etc. The mouse ended up been faulty.

the second is if mouse tracking is turned on you can turn it off with
the nvda key + letter M

When it is on it will speak what is under the mouse.

The other thing that could be happening is on laptops they have a touch
mouse pad and people will hit them from time to time. I am pretty sure
it can be disabled under the system then device manager section. Just
look for one that refers to touch.

I am using the latest version of NVDA (2016-4) on Windows 10, and have
been for several months now. I started experiencing a rather strange
and annoying behavior today, seemingly out of nowhere. I hope I can
properly describe it.

The only way I can describe what NVDA is doing is that it randomly
reads a different line of whatever application I am in. It reads the
one I want correctly, but will also read a line I'm not even on. For
example, conveniently, as I was typing the previous sentence, NVDA
read the first line in my edit window.

I have noticed this behavior in pretty much every program I use,
including Firefox, Internet Explorer, Notepad, Thunderbird, and
Chicken Nugget. I am loathed to reinstall from scratch, considering I
have made a lot of configuration changes, so I would appreciate any
advice. If there is debugging I can enable or whatever, I am happy to
do so.

I should also mention that I initially thought this could be something
funky with my keyboard, but I switched to JAWS, which I used in the
past, but it didn't occur then.
