Re: NVDA sometimes loses control and needs to be restarted
Vincent Le Goff <vincent.legoff.srs@...>
Luke's summary is accurate. I was about to point out that this is not a "lose focus problem", but a "lose control problem" as I put it. Indeed, all the key gestures that should trigger NVDA responses are ignored or handled by the system directly, as they would if NVDA weren't running at all. Reading the previous posts, it seems that my first assertion wasn't too far from the mark: NVDA sometimes "does it" when resources get limited on the system (especially memory), that is when something takes a long time or resource to complete. This doesn't sound like a NVDA issue, rather like a Microsoft issue placing conditions on hooks, but that's just a guess.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Yes, I do use Windows 10. Sorry for not adding this directly in my first message, I didn't think it was relevant. I'm using NVDA 2019.2.1 at the time, not testing the beta just yet, though it's definitely in my to-do-list.

This is not the same as NVDA losing focus, and being fixed with an alt+tab. That is an entirely different problem.
