Re: Loosing control of NVDA

Psst its in the quick guide to hotkeys, well it used to be, if its not now I'd not know.

However in some circumstances it seems to fail to work.
i ended up putting a batch file in to force nvda to close.

Oh, if anyone hadn't told about it I'd really never know. How did you
discover this command?

Why not do windows r then nvda -r in that dialogue? That restarts it
as well.

I have had it happen every so often, all nvda functionality basically
is dead, the only way is to navigate to the system trey, right click
nvda, select exit, then run nvda again and it then restarts.

Usually it happens with to many windows open, my theory is its only
on slower cpus as on my faster units this is less likely.

Even with this 3rd gen i5 while it happens about 5-10 times a year
its annoying enough to notice but thats about it.

it sounds like a buffer overflow problem. I haven't had it happen.

Subject: [nvda] Loosing control of NVDA

Sometimes when I am reading documents either on the Internet or in
Thunderbird I loos control of NVDA. The text starts rolling down the
page and I need to turn off NVDA. It cannot be restarted so I need
to restart my computer.
Has anyone come across this problem?
