Re: problem with latest NVDA


The system tray is universally used for such purposes and if it is incorrectly executing in this case in a lot of computers, how many millions of computers match your technical specifications, then that's a very strong argument to add the system tray dialog.  and the problem of something opening, which may be a different problem that occurs under the same conditions, is far more extensive.  My Windows 7 laptop is from 2011.  It is an Intel machine and I don't know if that matters.  I don't lose speech but as I explained something disruptive opens when I move to the icon in the system tray if it is my first time doing so in that session of Windows.  The icon is resonding to being selected, not activated.  This doesn't matter for a mouse user.  it does for a keyboard user.  Sometimes, its time to abandon ideology and add something that real world exegencies dictate should be added.

It can manifest itself several ways depending on how the desktop is set up
but if you hide that item, then it seems never to block the system again.
You do not really need it as windows ordinary  applets let you do all the
same things in any case, and as Isaid earlier, its specific to Intel chipped
networks I think.
 There are several Intel applets that run at start up in various places. one
is a security item, which sstrangely does not act the same way.

I didn't have that issue but in my case, if I moved to the network icon, if
it was the first time during that session of Windows, something related to
the icon would open.  I don't remember how I closed it now but if I would
pass over the icon by arrowing while moving to something else, unless I was
moving abnormally quickly, it would disrupt what I was doing by opening
whatever it opened.  This never happened while using the systray dialog.
also, it was a good while ago, but another icon didn't activate when I used
the system tray.  I had to use the system tray icon.  I don't know what
people are experiencing in Windows 10 regarding the system tray when
directly accessed as opposed to the system tray menu, but in Windows 7 using
the system tray directly simply did not work as well as the system tray
icon, ideology aside.

I don't have that issue at all actually. Running a custom machine with win
10 32 gigs of ram. In fact I never had that issue running windows 7
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.

  Best wishes

      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 in
      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 I
      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 :)
