Then I would ave to install Jaws just for the test, and I'dd rather
not do that. There's a reason why I switched to NVDA: It just meets
my needs a lot more.

As a test, have you considered
using a JAWS demo? If the problem isn't corrected quickly
enough, and if the program works with JAWS, a monthly JAWS
license might meet your needs.

Subject: Re: [nvda] NVDA freezes in IntelliJ
I am aware of the accessibility history of IntelliJ. It is getting
better though. Partly because Android Studio is also based on
IntelliJ, and for Android Studio they do seem to work a little bit
For me the choice for IntelliJ is more because that is what's
being used in industry. Since all my colleagues use IntelliJ, and
Eclipse does not support the way our project is organized, I
rather use what everyone else is using (if possible).
However the problem I have is not with IntelliJ accessibility. I
think there is a problem with NVDA and the Java access bridge in
general. I was hoping that someone might have a solution to that.
I'm also using JDK8, since that's what I require for our project.
I am running the latest update (JDK/JRE 1.8.0_231), so I assume I
also have the most up-to-date access bridge included.

HI. IntelliJ Idea has had problems with accessibility since
time immemorial. Perhaps you would consider eclipse? Or if
it is Android programming you are in to, then Android Studio?
Those aren't the best accessibility wise, but they do work
much better with NVDA. Also, you might want to check if you
have the Latest version of the Java SDK as they concequently
come with the latest version of the Java Access Bridge. I
have no idea of the degree of accessibility of versions later
then version 8 though because I have stuck to Java 8 and all
it's builds since it's inception. Cheers!

Unfortunately that won't help. IntelliJ is a Java application.
Therefore you need the Java Access bridge in order to be able
to use it with NVDA. The problem is that the Java Access
Bridge will only load if the accessibility service is running.
Thus if NVDA is not running while I start the application, I
won't be able to work with the program since the access bridge
On a similar note: if you restart NVDA while working with the
program, you also lose the access bridge and need to restart
the program as well.

What happens if you unload
NVDA, run the other program, then run NVDA again?

Subject: [nvda] NVDA freezes in IntelliJ
Using NVDA 2019.2.1, NVDA randomly freezes when I open
(Community edition 2019.2.4).
When it happens, NVDA hangs and won't report anything (also
switching to other applications with alt+tab). Also IntelliJ
will not open the current project. The only thing I can do
is to start
Windows Narrator, which does keep working, and end the
via the task manager. When the IntelliJ process is killed
Is there a way to make sure, or to increase the chance, that
I can start
IntelliJ without NVDA and IntelliJ locking each other?
When NVDA is back I have the following snippet in the log
