Re: Dragon UI hanging with NVDA

Sarah k Alawami

I don't use the software. But I've ben hearing complaints up to I believe it was last year 2018 by someone who is deaf blind. Dragin hangs on their windows using nvda, and hangs on their mac using voiceover, but it does not hang when using any screen readers and only their braille display, if I understand them correctly.

Take care

Have you asked Dragon about this one? I don't use it myself, but there is back in my misty old brain cell some recollection that this got fixed somehow. Maybe a later version of the software or something?

I've heard of similar issues with this software and nvda over the last
few years from people who have tested this. I have not however heard of
any fixes.

Take care

When I click on Dragon toolbar > Tools > Options, the options dialog
appears but mouse clicks and voice commands are ignored everywhere.
The pointer changes to an hourglass in the options dialog box. The
only recourse is ctrl-alt-del and restart Windows. If I exit NVDA
before calling up the Dragon options dialog, the UI does not hang.
I have latest releases of Win 10, Dragon Pro Individual and NVDA.
Has anybody Scene similar or do I have a personal problem?
