Re: nvda slows wi-fi
I’m not sure,
As I said on a previous message my braille display was in the next room but still connected via Bluetooth to my laptop.
Of course I realise that wi-fi is not the same as Bluetooth but proved the point when I went back to the room where the display was and also where my router is.
I then connected the laptop via ethernet cable to the router and wi-fi was fine.
When I removed the braille display from my devices on my laptop wi-fi worked fine.
The display is a freedom scientific focus 14.
What I haven’t tried yet is connecting the display via Bluetooth in close proximity to the laptop and seeing what happens then although I normally use the display on a desktop device in the other room.
As I said it might have been my provider, virgin media “playing about or there maybe an issue with bluetooth on my laptop although my keyboard k380 works well.
Thanks for your input.

Could it have been your braille display? I’m just guessing as your findings don’t’ make sense at all.
On my laptop, connected to the mains supply with my braille display in the next room and left turned on, whenever I tried an internet radio connection or even connecting to outlook Microsoft edge took at least half a minute.
However as I don’t use the braille display on my laptop I removed the focus 14 from the laptop and internet went back to practically normal.
So, can’t think what happened.
I can’t imagine that NVDA slows down Wi-Fi, even if it is searching for a Braille display, which is either serial or Bluetooth, not Wi-Fi.
What makes you say that NVDA is slowing down wi-fi?
All the best

Think I may have found the problem.
My braille display is now turned off and I suspect nvda was searching for it.
Can’t think why nvda still should have slowed down wi-fi.
For some reason nvda 21.4 slows down my wi-fi connection.
This has only happened recently.
I have now used jaws 2019 with no problem.
Tried uninstalling nvda and re-installed but still the same problem.
Any advice please.
For what its worth nvda works reasonabley on ethernet connection.
