Yes foks, it happened again.
At work, I am using the latest version of nvda in win8.1 I work as an ed assistfor the local school board. So I am connected through a network with several thousand machine running on it.
Occassionally, an update or patch or scan or whatever happens from central office.
A few weeks ago, right after the “ransom me” event, I experienced the same problem.
All of a sudden, the toggle insert+s stopped working correctly.
It would toggle through with off, beeps, on; but, when set to on there was no speech no matter what key or keys I pressed.
I rebooted several times with no change.
The tech came and reinstalled nvda.
So I have sent another tech request and hopefully he will show up Monday morn.
