Re: FW: [win10] A small request: can folks using NVDA 2018.3.x on Windows 10 Version 1809 try running intensive tasks and see if File Explorer responds?


 

Hi,
Yep, thanks for this one. This is going to be used to compare against those
running 2018.3.x.
Cheers,
Joseph

Running the latest version of Windows 10, 1809 Rel 17673, and last NVDA
alpha, the lag in File explorer seems a thing of past...

Hi,

For those reporting continued problems: are you sure you are all
running Windows 10 Version 1809 (October 2018 Update/build 17763)? If
you all say “no”, then I’m afraid I cannot use your reports for this
study. Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi.  Actually the problem is more severe when using intensive resource
apps like Sound forge and Magix Samplitude.  NVDA totally freezes in
the windows explorer view and takes some time to respond even after
these apps have gone out of scope.  Cheers!

Hi Group,

I can confirm the problem. In fact, the only way I even see the
window for Windows Explorer/This PC is when I move to the desktop
and tab to the task bar and highlight the item that says 'windows
explorer one running window.'  When I press enter on this to focus
on the folder, everything disappears.  The title bar says:
'Explorer' but nothing shows up.  When Gold Wave is complete with
its task, then everything goes back to normal.

Hi all,

For NvDA users running Version 1809: can you try the following
for me and Quentin please:

1. With NVDA 2018.3.x and Windows 10 Version 1809 installed,
open File Explorer to any folder, preferably to a location
where you have a large number of folders and files.
2. Run an intensive task such as applying effects to a large
audio file in programs such as GoldWave.
3. Switch to File Explorer and see if NVDA reads folder and
file names as you arrow through them.

This is a follow-up study to see if what NV Access and I have
implemented in NVDA 2018.3 is working. If NVDA freezes, do let
us know immediately so we can investigate as early as next week
(Quentin and I are in the middle of a short vacation at the
moment).

Cheers,

Joseph
