Re: problem with latest NVDA

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>

Yes well the network item that does this is Intel chipset specific and seemed to be in versions starting about the end of 2015, but of course it does not always get updated, so most people with installs before this do not have the issue.

Subject: Re: [nvda] problem with latest NVDA

i also have this problem using some network settings.
i did not try these settings before, so i thought that its a problem
of new versions of nvda!
then tried with previous versions of nvda with the same result!

I don't have that issue at all actually. Running a custom machine with win

virtually now that I recall. I just hit windows plus b and right arrow to
the network icon.

It may not be relevant to your problem but...

On every machine I have used running Windows 7 or Windows 10, moving to
the network icon in the system tray stops speech. My solution is to hit
ctrl esc to bring up the start menu, at which keystroke speech resumes,
esc to cancel back to the task bar, tab to the system tray and cursor to
the network icon. This time the network button shows and is available.

It does not seem to have anything to do with NVDA as the HAL screen-reader
reacts in exactly the same way.

Because it occurs on every machine i have used running 7 and 10, I have
never thought of it as a problem.

I don't know if this is a similar issue, but two or three times since
installed NVDA 17.3 I find that NVDA totally shuts up and can't be
back into action other than a hard reset. It happens when I go into
tray menus.

It's usually when I go into Network Settings to re-connect my dropped
internet, and as I came out of it there was total silence. It's maybe 1
20 times this happens (I have a very flakey internet because I live in
rural part of Wales). Last night when I went to adjust my volume and as
hit enter to open the volume slider all NVDA sound died.

I can CTRL+ALT+Del to go into shutdown options, which speaks with a
different voice (presumably using NVDA, but not my regular settings),
but if
I cancel out to return back to the desktop I'm back to silent mode. I
have a
shortcut to NVDA on my desktop titled znvda so that it's the only
begining with a z, so I should be able to jump straight to it. I've
tried using Win+R to run NVDA that way, but neither one will re-start

To me it feels more like an operating system error, but I've no real
for thinking that. It only happens once every three or four days max,
I'm going to turn logging on so that if / when it happens again I
have some more informative insight.

Hope that's helpful even just a tiny amount :)
