Re: NVDA crashes
You can close NVDA either using the system tray icon to open the menu and exiting from there, or you can use the Windows task manager. I don’t know what you currently do when you have this problem.
I’m using Windows 7 and I don’t know how often this problem happens to those running 7 or other versions, but off and on, the same thing happens to me.
I also have happen, off and on, a key getting stuck such as the NVDA key or control or alt. If I press the keys that might be stuck, that corrects that problem. This problem didn’t exist in NVDA a number of years ago and I don’t know when it was introduced. But at least using Windows 7, on my machine, it is a problem now, and in recent versions. I hadn’t used newer versions of NVDA much for a good while until newer versions of programs required it so I don’t know when this became a problem.
The only issue I continue to have with NVDA is the loss of the normal
hot keys for NVDA. All the hot keys stop working and I have found the
only way to get them working again is to restart NVDA. In this case I
can not close NVDA before I do this as the insert q key doesn't work.
