Re: NVDA sometimes loses control and needs to be restarted
You're not the only one to ever see it. I have had it happen many times, though not even as predictably as yours, and primarily in Firefox.toggle quoted message Show quoted text
I have always, without fail, been in a hurry, and been unable to take the time to save a debug log to try to track the problem down later.

This has been happening for some time, on so many computers and with so many different NVDA versions I can't believe I would be the only one to see this, and it's not a huge inconvenience, but it's strange and might be worth looking into. Regardless of the activity sometimes NVDA "loses control". The key hooks (the NVDA key and all the shortcuts associated with it) stop working. Using the numeric keypad works as would without NVDA. Pressing Caplocks, which is a NVDA key for me, triggers the CapLock function. NVDA still works somewhat and tries to report information, but one can't open the NVDA menu, read the time, look at the window title or indeed do lots of things controlled directly by NVDA.
