Re: NVDA Not Talking


The installation instructions were clear.  I'm saying that your experience isn't representative.  I don't know how many people it happens to but it must be a very small group since we have heard nothing until now and only two reports so far. 

If we see enough reports of this to identify the problem as more than rare or very rare, developers may look into it.

Gene, I removed my installed copy of NVDA and then installed a brand new one.  I had been using One Core Voices the Micro Soft David.  During the installation we just read the prompts and did what was asked.  My husband saw where it said no speech and I was surprised.  But I talked him through where to go and which things to click on.  It wasn’t hard but I don’t know if I could have accomplished it by myself.  I thought the instructions were pretty clear, at least to a person who had already been using NVDA.


Steven was the other person who finally pushed the correct buttons and figured it out also.  Marilyn

It isn't clear to me what happened in the two cases being discussed.  In your case, was NVDA set to no speech after an update or after an installation.  What was the case for whoever asked the original question? 


It shouldn't have happened but at least to me, it isn't clear when this happened.

In my case, I have no idea.  The synth I was using before was the item just above the no speech line


Just one of those mysterious things with computers, I guess.  Marilyn.

Hi.  How did it get set to no speech, in case someone else comes across this?
