Re: NVDA 2017 error

Tyler Spivey

Uninstalling NVDA won't fix this, because it doesn't delete the user configuration.
The easiest way to fix this is:
1. Press Windows+r to bring up the Run dialog.
2. Type: %appdata%\nvda
3. Press enter.
4. Find nvda.ini and delete it.

This won't remove your addons, just the configuration file which tells NVDA which synthesizer is currently active.

Greetings all,

I am an adaptive technology instructor in Colorado, and
am attempting to use NVDA to meet client needs.

While attempting to demonstrate NVDA on a PC with
multiple accounts I was changing the built in voices and received an
error message saying I needed to enter a password in order to use the
True Voice selected. The dialog box continued to reappear despite trying
to dismiss it, and NVDA was subsequently unresponsive. I have attempted
removing NVDA from all the accounts on the computer, reinstalling it
from the web site, and I continue to get the same error message.

Anyone have any work arounds or ideas? My thanks for the
