Why not try out the Resource Monitor AddOn which is found on the NVDA's
AddOn page? This will be able to tell us the processor power, among
other data. For instance on my HP425 Laptop this is what it has to say;
sorry its in Spanish but...

Carga media de la CPU 50%, Núcleo 1: 71.5%, Núcleo 2: 28.6%. Física:
1.36gb de 1.75gb utilizada (78%). Virtual: 1.66gb de 3.49gb utilizada
(47.6%). Física: 1.36gb de 1.75gb utilizada (78%). Virtual: 1.66gb de
3.49gb utilizada (47.6%). and my Laptop's general specs are (this is not
reported by Resource Monitor just to let you know; this info is found by
using the Review mode within the My Computer Properties under My
Computer icon) its specs are Laptop HP 425: Procesador AMD Athlon II
D.C. P320 (2.1GHz), Memoria de 2GB DDR3, Disco Duro de 320GB, Pantalla
de 14", DVD±RW, Red Inalámbrica, Windows 7 as mentioned above, 32 Bytes.
I'm using the NVDA Vocalizer voices, thus the importance of what
synthesizer are you using? What AddOns etc?

Hope this helps some.

At this point, we don't know enough to form proper opinions or
conclusions. One thing that should be checked is whether something is
using more processor power than it should. I don't recall what
version of Windows you are running but once you tell us, people can
tell you how to see how much processor power is being used by
everything on your system in total. If the number is excessively
high, we can start looking at the amount of power individual programs
use. This problem may be the result of something using a lot of
computer resources and whatever it is may be able to be removed or
stopped if it isn't needed.

Hi Kevin

I often use internet explorer as my browser.

Yes, I sometimes use firefox, but the problem is the same.

Although I am not 100% sure, I would like to conclude that the problem
is caused by the type of processor and the speed on my machine.

Why, because on my other laptop which use intel (R(core(tm)I4 with 4GB
memory, nvda respons very well without this problem.

My new HP laptop which gives me this problem use intel (r) seleron
processor at the speed of 1.6 GHZ.

Hope you understand.

Might you have too many AddOns installed? Try running NVDA without the

you want to do; among these options is Start NVDA without AddOns.
See if
this helps, to see if maybe it's an AddOn taht's causing this slowness?

Morning nvda users

I am Marisane from SA.

I have, for sometime now, been looking for your assistance regarding
nvda unresponsiveness but to no avail.

I have recently upgraded to nvda 2017.4, but the unresponsiveness
still persists.

May I know whether this may be due to my laptop's using intel seleron
processor at a speed of less than 2ghz?

Does the processor type and its speed have any impact on nvda's
functionality / dysfunctionality?

What processor and speed should one take into account when buying a
laptop so that nvda may respond positively?

I am frustrated, because this happens only with nvda and not with

I use jaws demo as I have no licence for it to do some work on my PC,
but it responds very well that I do not have the same problems as
those with nvda.

If the processor type and its speed are the cause of nvda'
unresponsiveness, why only it and not other screen reader like jaws?

Your urgent assistance in this regard is appreciated in advance.

Please, please, please help, I am getting frustrated everyday.

I solely rely on nvda as my jaws is only 40 minutes.

Hope you understand.
