Re: NVDA Freeze

Hi Daniel,

What were you doing when NVDA froze?  And if you do it again after restarting, does it still do the same thing?  Can you share the steps so others can try, and / or email to me directly?

Today, when using Outlook, NVDA 2019.3 beta 2, I get a freeze. What I did to be able to continue working was to log out and restart NVDA.


Don’t know if this is a known issue, but I am pasting from nvda-old.log:
