Re: Slow behavior of NVDA in Outlook 2016

It would be a real help to know not only *what to do, but *how *to *do *it. I'm sure the information is in the documentation somewhere, but since you obviously know how, it would be a real help if you would share.

Hi,
Core Mode (sometimes called "NVDA safe mode") is a term I coined to describe running NVDA with all add-ons disabled. This comes from the fact that NVDA is composed of a central core and add-ons on top of it (we the NVDA developers sometimes use the term "NVDA Core" or just the word "core" to describe the NVDA screen reader itself).
The ability to disable add-ons came in two phases:
1. All or nothing: this was introduced in 2015. This is done by telling NVDA to (re)start with add-ons disabled.
2. Disable individual add-ons: this was introduced in 2016. With this, one can disable individual add-ons in hopes of locating a possible culprit for issues with add-ons.

With these in place, one of the things developers ask users to try is run NVDA with add-ons disabled. If the issue is resolved, then we know that the problem lies with add-ons, and we try to disable each add-on until we find the offending add-on. If the problem persists, then we ask folks to try reproducing the issue with different screen readers in hopes of narrowing the scope a bit further.
Hope this helps.
Cheers,
Joseph

I have no idea what Core mode is. Please explain this term for those of us who are less tech savi. I am running Windows 10 Office 365 Outlook 2016. Not sure about others.

Cheers

Paula

Hi,
And versions of NVDA and Windows you've got. Please try running NVDA in Core Mode (add-ons disabled) and see if this helps.
Cheers,
Joseph

Add-ons? Do you guys have anti-virus?

These need to be clearly specified

Hi Jim,

Nope, this doesn't fix the issue for me.

Hi,

More out of curiosity than anything else, When NVDA starts to lag, ALT
tab away from the email and then back again to see if this fixes the issue.

Thanks,
Jim.

Hi Sylvie

I found that uninstalling NVDA and reinstalling the latest build has
partially fixed the lagging issue. I still find that it occurs
sometimes when I type longer messages. If you find a better fix, I
would be interested. Although the lagging isn't as bad, and I do not
have to resort to closing the screen reader and running another just
to write my email, it is still frustrating ant time consuming.

Cheers

Paula

Hi Sylvie,

I am using Outlook 2016 with NVDA on Windows 10 and I do not encounter
any slowing down between screens or when reading text. The only time I
experience that kind of slowdown of speech is in Excel when I am
reading formulas. NVDA takes a while to say "left paren" or "right
paren". I looked into this and found that the mathematical symbols are
not in the default dictionary file and NVDA has to go to another file
to find the word to speak and describe the bracket under the cursor.

Your problem sounds so like this that I wonder if you have a language
setting problem. Are you working in French or English? If in French,
are you using Outlook in English while your language setting is
French? On the other hand, is it the reverse? By that I mean, are you
using French when your default language setting is English? Apart
from either of these settings, do
any of the words you meet have French accents or other French
symbols? If
so, then you may be experiencing the same problem as mine in Excel
where NVDA has to go to a different file to find the words for
those symbols.

Let me know if any of this applies to your situation.


Yours sincerely,

Cearbhall O'Meadhra

Hello all,

First, let me introduce myself as I am new on this list.

My name is Sylvie, I live in France and work for a company training
people on how to make web sites accessible to all.

I use NVDA as my primary screen reader and am really enthusiastic about it.

I write you today for one user who encounters a very slow behaviour of
NVDA while using OUtlook 2016 on his Lenovo PC running on Windows 10.

He uses Google APP Sync in order to synchronise his mails, calendars
and contacts between his different devices.

When he writes or displays e-mails, NVDA reacts very slowly. It
sometimes takes 3 or 4 seconds while going to the next word.

He tried several things to solve the problem: changing his anti-virus
software, disabling Windows Defender, changing settings on Outlook and
Lenovo tools, but nothing has improved.

He installed Jaws 18 and did not encounter the same issue.

Has anyone similar problems or any solutions?

Thanks for your help.

Best regards

Sylvie
