Re: Query regarding NVDA Logging Level

Quentin Christensen

They're "Log" level, rather than login level - they determine the amount of information recorded in your NVDA log file.  You can find the log in your %temp% folder (note the percent signs either side of the word temp).

The higher the level (with debug being the highest), the more amount of information is recorded in the log.  We don't recommend leaving it set to a high level generally, just because of the amount of extra information it records, particularly potentially personal information if it is recording what you type and what it reads.  Note that no matter what level the log is set to, nothing is ever done with it - ie it is never sent anywhere unless you attach it to an email etc (which I might ask you to do for a bug I can't replicate).

Kind regards

Dear all,

I'm a full time user of NVDA.

I'd like to know about different options of login level under
Preferences > Settings > General.

What is the difference between Info, Debug warning, Input/Output and Debug?

Kindly elaborate.

Thanks and regards.
