Re: nvda latest RC version don't speak when in settings or windows defender program

Quentin Christensen

I did have someone else with a very similar issue, and after they restarted the computer it was all working again.  So, a reminder to please restart the computer after installing or updating any software, including NVDA.

Kind regards

Hi, firstly we would need to know the exact build of Windows you have as
there are differences.
 To get a log there are many ways.  Firstly open up a blank copy of notepad.
 Go to the  part of windows not working as it should and do an NVDA/F1. This
should open the log viewer with the  last entries the bits of diagnostic
info needed. However go up the file until you can hear the part where you go
into the non working part and  select all the file from there to the bottom
of the  file and cut and paste it into notepad, and save it as something
meaningful, in case of any crashes.
 Get back to the email software, start a message with the sub line of your
problem in this group first,  put the details of the windows version etc
and the problem and then cut and paste the contents of the notepad to the
bottom of the message.
 Before doing this I would advise that you go to nvda settings and general
and select the debug level for your log as this will have more details in it
before you attempt to show the issue.

I hope this makes sense.
 If somebody here  can get a good look and duplicate the issue then fine, if
not then you might have some odd windows issue.

If nobody can resolve it you may need to get an account on github web site
and raise a new issue for it.
 However I'd suggest trying the new  release version if you have not
already. also try to test with all add ons disabled firs as some odd things
can happen if one is old or misbehaving for whatever reason.
