Re: Problems With NVDA

I might have missed a few messages here, but it rang an alarm bell that you did not have the Comm Registration Tool in your nVDA menu. Did you check to make sure you are actually running the latest nVDA version?

Firefox did have some well-reported issues until recently, so that's another reason I am wondering about that. As for iE, I don't know; haven't used it in ages.

Hello again:
I thank all those who found time to respond to my issue.
Brian, My GBRam is a low grid. It is just 2GB. But even with that I don't have this problem with JAWS. But as I said yesterday, chrome appears to be reasonably fine with the screen reader, although firefox and internet explorer are almost unusable.
I am thinking of increasing my GB ram with an SDCard.

Use Chrome, it is better than either Firefox or Internet Explorer.

All the best

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

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

Does anyone understand the problem I am having with my NVDA screen reader?
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.
