Re: Problems with NVDA and latest Windows 10 1803


Steve, may I ask if you're running NVDA as portable? Truthfully, I
personally cannot replicate any of the problems you're having w/my
Windows 10, latest build,. Can you tell us:
1) How are your views set?
2) What details do you have enabled?
3) Is your File Explorer maximized?

I do know that portable NVDA just does not read lists as well as when
it's actually installed. I don't know if this is because it's better
able to hook into various machine processes or what, but that is
something my experience has definitively shown me.

I really hope we can help you get this solved, because it does seem
that many of us don't share this experience, so I suspect it may be
something unique to your setup that can be rectified. Keep plugging, &
we'll hang in there w/you till we get to the bottom of it all.

Yep, this pretty much mirrors my experience, although I can never get NVDA
to read the list now.

NVDA is pretty horrible with File Explorer under Windows 10, and it’s got
worse with this build.

All the best

I just close file explorer and reopen it when it starts acting funky. either
that, or I shut down NVDA and restart it. Alternatively, I can sit here and
stare at the computer for a few minutes, until it decides to behave itself,
which it does eventually do. It has to be an NVDA thing, though, because it
doesn't do this with System Access at all. I have trouble alt tabbing
between windows when it wants to act up, and then I have trouble going
through list items. It's like the cursor doesn't want to move through them
but it actually does; it's just NVDA isn't reading me the items. I also find
that if I have more than, say, two or three windows open and I close one of
them, it starts working fine again. It's random, though, so I never know
when it's going to misbehave. It's not aggravating enough to make me switch
screen readers, though. I just figure it'll be fixed in a future update and
go with it.

So I wonder what is the determining factor then?

I am running the latest version of NVDA on my HP laptop and I do not have
any issues using NVDA with file explorer. I am also using the 1803 Windows

I’m assuming you haven’t tried it in the File Explorer app then? That’s the
bug I was reporting.

I can't remember if I replied or not but lists are fine in the explorer.exe
app. I'm so far knock on wood not having any issues as far as I can see,
except for obs but that's probably a broken app.

I recently reported that Outlook message lists were not reading for me.

It is in fact worse than that, lists in general don’t seem to be reading.
For example, File Explorer in Windows 10 is completely silent for me now.

JAWS is reading lists quite happily.

Any thoughts?
