Re: NVDA goes mad

If you had save settings on exit in force, the default, and if settings had been changed but the saved settings were still the same, you would have lost the saved settings. If you had had save settings on exit turhned off, which is not the default, you could have safely done this and not lost the settings and you might have restored proper behavior. Your comment is a further illustration of why save settings on exit should not be the default.

I would have hit control alt N to restart NVDA if this would have
happened to me.

Hi all


NVDA suddenly started talking non-stop. At times it was talking so fast that it kept making funny noises like an old-time vinel record when it got stuck.

It was so frustrating to restart the computer with no normal NVDA. Restarting NVDA did not work either. The last option was to re-install it again as not even the fixing tool was able to restore nvda. That was easier said than done as it was almost impossible to find the folder it is saved in while the babbeling went onand then to find the installation file by pressing N.

It now works properly again. Never experianced this problem before.
