Hi, This is Helga. How are you? I use JAWS my friend! And I heard that the Focus 40 Blue braille display only works with JAWS 11 and newer. Do you have JAWS? Have you tried testing your display with JAWS besides NVDA? I'm still learning in working NVDA but JAWS can help as well! Hope to hear form you soon! Perhaps there is a way to make you rdisplay work with NVDA. But i don't know that yet! Thanks and God bless!

It just happened again, again while I was writing. My mother came to help me again and tried to save my work. Word wouldn't respond. She tried to exit NVDA mannually, but it wouldn't allow her to do that. She scanned NVDA with Microsoft Security Essentials but nothing came up. I'm now using the computer without my Braille Display. I don't understand why it's doing this to me, but I can't think of any other culprit. It's brand new. We bought it in February and I've barely used it, partly because of this issue and partly because of the MUD I've been playing. But I've had it plugged into my computer via USB almost constantly since I got it and installed the driver. The computer usually starts up with it plugged in.Please, someone, help! I want to solve this problem as soon as possible! I've had about enough of this and I don't want to sacrifice my Braille Display just because this is happening!On 2/05/2016 7:10 AM, Sharni-Lee Ward wrote:

got any more useful help after Joseph said to submit a log entry. Which
given the nature of my problem, I doubt would work.
Since I got my Braille Display in February, NVDA has frozen with
alarming regularity. It hasn't been like previous experiences of the
phenomenon either. I used to occasionally have NVDA freeze, but I could
restart the screen reader with alt+ctrl+n. With this situation, I can't.
NVDA completely stops working. It says nothing. The Braille display's
display remains frozen on whatever was last spoken. I can't restart
NVDA, and sometimes can't even shut down the computer without sighted
help. That's the only way to get things working again—shut down and
restart the computer. I used to only experience this soon after startup,
especially when I tried to activate the snapshot with the experimental
UEB table in it, but now I'm having it happen after the computer's been
going for a while, and it happens on both the normal installation and
the brltbl snapshot. Just now, I had it happen while I was writing in a
document. I was typing merrily away when NVDA stopped reporting letters
and the Braille Display, when I checked it, was only displaying the
first two words I'd typed on that line.
This is getting seriously annoying both for me and my mother, who is my
carer. I don't know what's causing this problem but I have a horrible
feeling it's to do with my Focus 40 Blue, as it didn't happen before I
got it. Can anyone shed some light on this? I want it to stop so my
writing and other activities don't keep getting interrupted.
