Re: rolling back to NVDA 2017.1


 

hi brian and joseph.
i downloaded nvda 2017.2
even sometimes when i started my computer and pressed start button to
bring the menus, nvda became unresponsive and silent.
sometimes, using TaskManager and ending processing of nvda and its
shortcut to start nvda or sometimes, nvda's shortcut for starting it,
was helpful for me.
but sometimes i needded to use power button to turn of my system!
i use windows xp, with twoGb of ram and cpu two cores.
in most cases, also i could not use firefox easily and i should press
alt+tab many tabs many tabs or close firefox or end process of nvda
and restart it to work.
so i completely uninstalled 2017.2 and returned to 2017.1
its extremely fast and completely responsive without any hang or crash.
i am completely satisfied with nvda 2017.1 and i dont have any problem
which i mentioned in this list or in the github with firefox using
this version of nvda.
nvda 2017.1 is the best version for me.

Hi, I use neither of those pieces of software myself. Do you have a real

more accurately to where the issue is. I've seen no issues myself but thenas

I say, neither of the items mentioned in that issue apply to my machines.

Hi everyone,

It appears a code responsible for handling transparent text when looking at

the screen may have contributed to this problem, or perhaps there's some
code entered into NVDA master around March 2017 that might be causing issues

for those affected. I have raised an issue at:
https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/7251

Cheers,
Joseph

The slowdown I noticed that made me roll back to 2017.1 is happening on
Windows 7. The processes I notice the slowdown on are ones that have
progress bars on the screen. One does a file scan of files across quite a
few folders, and the other is loading audio files and converting them to
different formats. Under NVDA 2017.2 it takes several times longer for these

processes to run than it does with NVDA 2017.1 running. I tried turning
progress bar updates completely off, but this didn't help.
I didn't notice any other slowness on my systems using 2017.2, only when
there were progress bars involved.

It would be revealing if those who notice slow downs in nvda would
tell us what version of Windows and if 10, which actual version it is.
I am beginning to suspect its only Windows 10, as testing the code out
on 7 and even, shock horror, XP it seems pretty snappy in fiirfox the
xp machines can only run 52 and 48 of the browser due to harrdware and
software constraints.

However they work well.


My feeling is a big arrow pointing to Microsofts UIA code.

So that's why Firefox has been slower this past week for me while
navigating. I thought it might be Firefox updates, but am now
wondering if it is NVDA. I unfortunately don't have the 2017.1
installer, so can't check

this out.

Hi,
The slowness has been ongoing since the 2017 version. It comes and go.
When I start my Outlook 2013, there is a definite silence for close
to a minute then its starts reading. The moment I begin scrolling
rapidly with the down arrow, the voice gets stuck and I have to play
with it to get it going. The same happens with Firefox, worse
I-e11, Edge. It is less obvious with Google Chrome. I have
reported this various times. I am glad

this will be thoroughly investigated as it is very frustrating and
even risky when you are in the middle of a brokerage transaction or
a bank transfer.
Many thanks
Blessings
Pascal

Hi,
I plan to investigate reports of general slowness in hopes of
finding out what's up.
Cheers,

I have two questions. Could I have the link for nvda 2017.1? the web
is a lot slower with 2017.2 and even the next snapshots its slower.
Or should I just stay on the next snapshots and maybe my issue will
clear up in a few days? and my other questin is if I roll back to
2017.1 should I completely uninstall the next snapshot and delete
all related folders? or should i install 2017.1 overtop the
snapshot?
