Re: weird stuff happening with NVDA add ons

Hi Luke,


Good to hear from you man, to answer the ASB question, absolutely. That was where we met and hung out. I taught for a few more years and switched to doing tech work in 2007. The zoom add on did eventually installed properly. The only other one that’s not working was the one that could read captions.  I believe it came from the blindie tech list. Since I tried it last month, I don’t know if NVDA keeps the old logs from that far back. I will test it again if I can find the link to the message in it and try a re-install with the add ons disabled.  If it doesn’t work, I’ll be sure to send you the log.

"latest versions" is a bit nebulous, but I will assume you mean you are
using NVDA 2020.2 and Windows 10 version 2004.

That given: what add-ons have you tried, and where did you get them?

Perhaps more importantly, have you tried to install these add-ons after first
restarting NVDA with add-ons disabled?

If so, can you set your log to debugging, and send it to me off list?
(%temp%\nvda-old.log is the file for the previous NVDA session, %temp%\nvda.log
is the log from the active session.)

Btw, didn't you used to work in the computer lab at ASB many years ago? I
knew you from stuff I used to do in the same building, think we hung out a few
