Re: Problems With NVDA

Ibrahim Ajayi

To the first respondent I did say that I have the latest update of
NVDA AND i use windows732bit.
I must say that I have this problem with NVDA when I use firefox and
internet explorer particularly. I seem not to have this problem with
chrome so much. I am usiing chrome right now.

Where NVDA keeps reading "Unknown", the solution is to use the COM
registration fixing tool:

1) Press NVDA+N to open the NVDA menu
2) Press T to open the tools menu
3) DOWN ARROW to "Run COM registration fixing tool"
4) Press ENTER, then ENTER again.

Let me know if that works (or doesn't).

Kind regards

I am having problems with my NVDA screen reader.
The screen reader is just too slow when I am browsing the internet.
When I am doing some other work like word processing or reading
documents off line, it is not slow.
This problem has nothing to do with the websites, as I don't have this
slow problems online with JAWS. I use a demo copy of JAWS.
Secondly, when I visit a website, or even some times when I launch a
web browser like internet explorer or firefox, I hear "internet
explorer unknown" or "firefox unknown" and the screen goes quiet, and
when I press the arrow down key, that is what I keep hearing. Some
times, when I am on a site, or trying to open a site, the screen
reader crashes, and disables the computer itself. I just have to shut
it down, and then restart it all over again.
Does anyone understand the problem I am having with my NVDA screen
I use windows7 32 bit on a laptop.
I have the latest update of the screen reader.
Hope to read a helpful response.
I am Ibrahim.
