Re: NVDA Speech delay after Computer is Idle

Betsy Grenevitch

This problem with NVDA began after my latest windows update. Sometimes it will happen even when I am in the middle of doing something like saving a document.

I read Jonathan's article but it is above my understanding of how to handle the situation.

Hello again,
the thing is that it also happens when a sound is playing (for example
video or audio), it takes some time til NVDA starts working again after
not being active.

Subject: [nvda] NVDA does not work properly

Hello list,
I have some weird issue with NVDA.
When I do not use my laptop for a longer period of time (half an hour
and longer), but the laptop is stil on, and when I want to use it again,
I pres any key, NVdA takes quite a long time to start speaking.
I have Lenovo, Windows 10, latest NVDA version and I have screensavers,
and standby mode disabled.
Please, if anyone knows any workaround, let me know.
Thank you very much for your help.
