Re: NVDA Not Talking

Yes, even if I start it after logon manually, it appears to load but there is no speech.
I know it is running as when you do NVDA+q, you receive the quit screen.

Hi, Steven. Just because there's speech at logon does not mean there will be speech once the computer has started. Both options need to be checked in 'Preferences > Settings > General'. Specifically:
"Start NVDA after I sign in" needs to be checked.

Hi friends,

I Have installed the latest NVDA on my laptop.

When I start up, there is speech at the logon screen but after logging
on, there is nothing at all, no speech.

During the installation, there was no speech either which seems quite odd.

If I load up JAWS then I can use the NVDA+N and it would appear that
NVDA is running.

I Use NVDA+Q and JAWS will read the NVDA quit screen but again, there
is no speech from NVDA itself.

When I type, there is a high pitched sound for some reason until I
unload NVDA.

I Tried uninstalling NVDA and re-installing but the same thing seems
to have happened afterwards.

Does anyone have any ideas please?
