Nope, System Access. I haven't used JAWS in years.

I assume you are talking about JAWS. You should be able to
restart JAWS if you don't have it displayed in the system tray
and have it displayed as a window in the tab order. You can
move into that window and close JAWS with alt f4.
There may be a way to close JAWS while running it from the
system tray but I don't know it. Others may.

Hi, Tony. It's a pain in the rear, but try restarting NVDA when
encounter treeview lists that won't read. it happens with me in
Explorer. when I restart NVDA, it usually corrects the issue--at
for a while anyway. Maximizing the window will also tell you on
item your cursor is placed, but again, it's a pain to arrow
keep hitting alt+space, then x and reading the current line.
Alternatively, close all of your Explorer windows and reopen them.
do something else for about five minutes and then return to your
you get too frustrated, try another screen reader. These are the
I've done to deal with this problem. I keep hoping with each
update or NVDA update that the issue will be corrected, but so far
hasn't been. It isn't a deal breaker. there's something in another
screen reader that drives me even more bonkers, and that's how the
insert key randomly stops working. At least it doesn't do that in
I can live with the treeview lists not reading because I can
restart NVDA, but when the insert key quits working, I can't
other screen reader because that's one of the keys used to restart
Anyway, I hope this is somewhat helpful for you. Take care.
