Re: NVDA still freezing, don't know what the deal is


But you are still rebooting and losing any work you haven't saved if you are working on something.  When a screen-reader freezes, it is important to know what to do that may allow you to continue without rebooting.  Perhaps this should be a topic for a session at the next NVDA con.  and perhaps it should be a subject for a tutorial and be included in the new written guide. 
It is important to know how to try to run another screen-reader and how to use the task manager to shut down NvDA if you can't restart it using the NVDA short cut command and then try running it again.

Hi Sharni,

I have a similar problem but my log entries are different and my freezing occurs mainly in outlook 2016. Regardless, this is what I do to recover from it without sighted assistance.
1. Hit windows key +l or ctrl+alt+ddel. It depends on whichever key combination works.
2. I get to the login screen.
3. I can then tab to the shutdown button and power off or restart the computer.

OS=Windows 10
NVDA 2016.1
