I am using Windows 10 and NVDA 2020.4. Sometimes, after a period of time without any activity and when left at the sign-in screen, I lose speech from NVDA at the sign-in screen. Generally, this happens after a period of inactivity lasting a day or more. NVDA becomes totally sluggish; sputtering and not speaking the various fields on the sign-in screen as I tab around them. This makes it impossible to sign-in; causing me to make a hard reboot. After the reboot, speech at the sign-in screen is normal.
Why is this? How can I prevent it?
