Re: NVDA sluggish in task manager and resource monitor

For interest's sake, or if it makes any difference, if I switch over to a microsoft voice, under NVDA using the SAPI 5 synthesizer, then it's always somewhat sluggish/laggy, in both task manager, or even if just moving line to line in a text file in notepad, but, my primary synth/TTS engine is eSpeak NG, and, that's one of the most responsive TTS engines - seems that way to me, and, partly why it's always my primary screen reader of choice with NVDA.


But, task manager doesn't seem to be offering any more sluggishness than other interfaces on my side - and, if means much, this is on a lenovo w52 laptop, running windows 10 pro 64 bit.


stay well

If I hit ctrl+shift+escape right now on my win10 64 bit creators

version, running current NVDA next snapshot, it works fine in the task

manager, is just as responsive as anywhere else, etc. etc.

 

 

Only issue have always had with windows 10 task manager is trying to

switch between what would have rendered as pages under windows 7 -

tasks/applications, processes, startup, etc., but anyway.

 

 

Stay well
