Re: NVDA will not start

I too was a 20 year user of window eyes and migrated to Jaws, and paid the 129 dollars for the 2 upgrades and still haven't use Jaws. NVDA to me was less complicated, than jaws.

Hello Angela. I agree with you that NVDA is a great alternative to JAWS.
There are organisations starting to embrace it. To answer your question as
to why people think that JAWS is the only option, it has to do with the fact
a lot of them had not checked out NVDA, and they think, "well, if its free,
it can't compare to JAWS. I really think that you'll start to see more
organisations embracing NVDA in the long term. I come from both a JAWS and a
Window-Eyes background. I started in 2000 using JAWS 3.5, then, in 2006, got
my own copy of Window-Eyes and used that until 2017 before switching to NVDA
and boy NVDA is indeed faster. Its even more faster on my SSD solid state
hard drive that I have.

I finally decided to switch fromJaws to NVDA and find it so good: I wonder
why people always think of Jaws as the only option and don't choose this
great open source screen reader... It seems really fantastic!
The good thing is: there are all commands available in the help menu, so
every one can learn... And I think it does many many things: now it can be
compared  to Jaws! It is even faster! The transition is smooth and have no
problems at all.
And I updated to the latest version with no particular nuisance.
Thank you so much to the wonderful devs who make it better every day!
Sorry for my terrible English, but I wanted to thank you those who put
effort on what they do.

have you tried to go to %appdata% and clobber the nvda folder?

Maybe a mangled setting.

I have had soundcards do bad things and need driver updates to.

First, I am relatively new to NVDA having worked with both WindowEyes
and JAWS. I have been a TVI for longer than it seems possible. At
present, I continue that teaching, but have started working with

option for my age group as many are no longer employed and don't
qualify for many aspects of rehabilitation services and many of whom
are on fixed incomes that may prevent them from affording other

I have been learning NVDA for eight months or so and find the
transition from other screen readers quite easy. However, I am stuck
at the moment as NVDA will simply not run.

I had used it several weeks ago and needed to get back to building
skills. I tried the usual things and finally uninstalled NVDA and
reinstalled with the newest version. The install appeared to go
without a hitch and the default voice spoke through the end of the
process. Unfortunately, NVDA will still not run even when activated
from the program group directly. ,

I would love any next step suggestions  to try and sort this out.
Many thanks,
