Re: Pauses in MS-Word
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I tried using Narrator and there were no pauses. Then I tried NVDA again and there were also no more significant pauses—only a bit when I selected many of the document formatting options. I tried over some time to reproduce the delays I had struggled with before, but without success. Is it possible that Narrator reset something in the Word document or in Windows 10?

the article makes suggestions but doesn't explain how to do the various things suggested. This has nothing to do with accessibility but rather of knowledge of how to do what is suggested. So, blind or sighted, these things are probably all accessible, they all sound accessible to me.

The web tells me a number of things to do that I can't understand.

Its as if there is a spike in resource grabbing somewhere every so often then it returns to normal again. I always put this down to something else other than nvda, as it also seems to upset the typing according to sighted people where you can go on typing then all the missing ones arrive on screen at once. Is this what the other person gets?Brian--Sent via blueyonder.(Virgin media)Please address personal E-mail to:-briang1@..., putting 'Brian Gaff'in the display name field.----- Original Message -----From: "Ralph Boersema" <ralph@...>Sent: Thursday, June 23, 2022 5:27 PMSubject: [nvda] Pauses in MSWordDear Friends,I do not usually keep up with this list, so please forgive me if this matter has been dealt with recently. When I work with Word documents NVDA frequently pauses before reading something to me. The pause frequency and the length of the pauses increase as the documents get longer. I have had this problem for years and with different versions of Word and of NVDA.Currently I am using Microsoft 365 and my NVDA is up to date. Is there some configuration I need to change, either in Word or in NVDA?Warmly,Ralph.
