Re: Lots Of NVDA Freezes

Did the sound drivers get updated by windows?
I wonder if it is some driver issue. I think the first thing I'd try is to roll back both the windows and nvda versions, the update nvda with the old windows and see if the problem persists. At least then you can see if its one or the other.

Subject: [nvda] Lots Of NVDA Freezes

As far as I can figure out, I’m having so many freezes with NVDA since Windows 10 was updated, NVDA went to 2018.2.1, or both, that I can’t reliably use NVDA. As far as I can tell, NVEA is not crashing, because I am looking for the old log file by using Windows+R, then typing temp and looking for it in that folder. I have debug turned on for the log. When NVDA freezes, it seems that the keyboard freezes. I have been trying to run either JAWS or Narrator, then passing the NVDA+F1 key stroke to get at the existing log, because I’m assuming that NVDA is still running, since I have not found the old log hanging around. I could really use some advise diagnosing this issue, so that I can either add to a GitHub issue some useful information or make a new one.

Thanks so much for letting me rant.
