Re: A plea to NVDA developers


Personally I think that dialog should probably not save the response to it in nvda.ini and should be a separate configuration file because of this.

Hello Joseph

I gave the Save settings command and restarted NVDA and no more did the dialog bother me. Sorry, I should have thought of that myself. Many thanks for your helpful response. My only excuse is that we are having a terrifically cold winter and that my mind is frozen.

Kind regards

To better understand what's going on, please answer the following questions:
* When the pop-up comes up, did you say 'no"?
* If you said "no" yet the dialog opens again, chances are that NVDA can't save settings. Have you tried saving settings manually by pressing Control+NVDA+C?
* Under Settings/General panel, is the last checkbox named "Allow the NVDA project to gather NVDA usage statistics" not checked?

Thanks for the heads-up!

you in version 18.3.

I never get that message either.  I just start up NVDA and away it goes.

Hello Christo,

Strange thing indeed! I never get the dialogue. I got the request
once, and never again.

I'm sure there's an option to avoid that.

I've checked my settings. Under Settings, General, the relevant
checkbox is checked here. It's the last one before the OK.

hth, ciao,

Hello to NVDA developers on the list

I understand the need to get a user's permission to collect usage
data, but popping up that dialog at every start-up of NVDA is
totally over the top. Please please please don't do that. Please
include a "Don't ask me again" checkbox in the dialog and retain
the option in General settings. This is not something on which one
would regularly change one's mind. It is really annoying and
irritating to have this dialog pop up with every start-up. If you
feel it is necessary, pop it up during installation and during an
update or provide the option not to be asked again.

Kind regards
