Re: Hello/Still Noticing Slight Performance Decrease When Navigating with NVDA 2018.4
Thank you for confirming what I have noticed. The performance hit I'm seeing is significant enough that I really prefer what the previous version. However, I am impressed with the experimental UIA support which I enabled in my NVDA.ini file for use with
Word. I definitely notice the difference, particularly on my machine which is not the fastest machine around. What I'd really like to see most in NVDA is a refactoring of the speech to improve latency and, dare I make this comparison, to make it behave more
like JAWS. Specifically, I'm referring to the responsiveness when navigating using the cursor and when typing.

I noticed this in Chrome too - 2018.4 is slightly slower than 2018.3.2. All the betas of 2018.4 were slower as well. However, with 2018.3.2 I had a problem of weird behavior with missing keystrokes in browse mode. So it seems to me some bugs were fixed that both solved my problem and made chrome a bit slower.

When I navigate by links with K or shift K in Thunderbird and even, to an extent, in Chrome I notice a slight slowdown in responsiveness compared to 2018.3. For a short time I thought it was my computer as I was sometimes seeing this occur in 2018.3.2 but, in general, 2018.3.2 is still somewhat faster. I sent Quentin a debug file with all addons disabled but I'm assuming there was nothing obvious in the output as I haven't heard back. I notice this with Espeak. On a faster machine I do not notice this but on a slower Athlon 2.9 GHZ there is a slight but noticeable difference. Just wondering if anybody has noticed this and if something changed in the code regarding navigation? -- David Goldfield, Assistive Technology Specialist https://nam05.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=WWW.David-Goldfield.Com&data=02%7C01%7C%7C02baf334e89b435b7a8008d6651a2b34%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636807560394078993&sdata=VQyb5%2B5iHZPxlsV9qvHkN5yCHwYNnI1uT%2FTfEq%2B8qkA%3D&reserved=0<https://nam05.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2FWWW.David-Goldfield.Com&data=02%7C01%7C%7C02baf334e89b435b7a8008d6651a2b34%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636807560394078993&sdata=suBnh5KjAV4okePbqYQnpsXB6sIO691ItYJEhhM1enU%3D&reserved=0>
