Re: Can't always blame NVDA

 

Maybe, One thing I wander if you can access the keyboard in the laptop, uninstall it and then remove the software with the checkbox making sure you do a system restore point first, in theory unless it turns your system into a mess it should load a standard driver.

I know for a fact that the last hp keyboard drivers are like a year old nothing came from march last year.

Subject: [nvda] Can't always blame NVDA


This week my computer became really unresponsive to key presses. It
was right after a Windows 10 update, so I was blaming some sort of
incompatibility between W10 & NVDA. I was going to roll it back, but
for some reason I decided to do another test first & plugged a USB
keyboard into my laptop. Guess what? All the unresponsiveness
disappeared! Just goes to show sometimes that events surrounding
things like unresponsiveness, ie, such as an update, may be purely
coincidental & merely serve to throw a smoke screen. Troubleshooting
can be a real b-word, & I guess it's just best to keep all the
possibilities in mind. This was addressed to no one in particular.
Just sharing an experience on a Saturday in hopes it might help
someone on their troubleshooting journey.

And that is exactly the issue, ie some sail through unscathed while others do not.

Several people I know have rolled back to the last update due to one of the recent ones making their machine slow eat battery and overheat.
These issues have to be driver related at the lowest hardware level.

Microsoft originally released this update obviously when it wasn't

of people chomping at the bit to try the new full updates, that they
wait to see if Microsoft has released a good update in future. Of
course, if someone wants to see what the latest is like and be a
guinea pig, a beta tester after beta testing should no longer be
necessary, that's fine, but for those who aren't in that category and
who want dependability and reliability, I would always wait. Even in
the past, before Windows 10, people were advised to wait after a new
version of Windows came out before adopting it. Even with proper
care, there are always going to be problems with a complex piece of
software like this. But the last two full updates have more and more
serious problems than properly tested software should.

I will say it.
I told you so. The best move I ever made whenWindows10 came into my world was to go back to windows 7. I am not a fan of a new Windows every 6 months.
I hate to think what is going on for corporate users, however I suspect they have a longer time to roll out updates than we freeloading plebs have who are the minions doing unpaid debugging for Microsoft.

Re: Can't always blame NVDA

I don't know how long you have been running it.  Many people didn't loose files.  those who ran a specific utility, I don't remember its name, did.  I think the name was something like redirect folders but that isn't quite it. 
 
But the proboems, and there were more than just file loss, were serious enough that Microsoft withdrew the update about a month ago and just very recently started making it available again.  One person's experience never tells whether a program performs well in general.  That's why beta testing is done with a large sample.

Re: Can't always blame NVDA

 

Well interestingly enough on my hp system after the update, during an intel check my wireless bluetooth, just the bluetooth and not the wifi card had an update, so check with intel driver updater and see if you have updated wireless and bluetooth drivers.

That may be all it  was.

Unless its a false positive detection by your antimalware program it doesn't have spyware at all.

Nothing on github actually has spyware.

Otherwise nvda has spyware.

Hi Josh,


I downloaded the NVDA add on and some English SAPI 5 VOICES.  I installed everything and was flagged by Windows Defender.  I chose run anyway and everything seemed to go OK.  However, the RH synthesizer nor any of the SAPI 5 voices show up anywhere under synthesizers or voices choices under Microsoft SAPI 5 synthesizer.  I am running Windows 10 latest update.  Is this system compatible with Windows 10?


What could be going wrong?

yes the addon is compatible. you have to download the addon, install it, download a voice or two that you want, install it, restart NVDA and it will work. but honestly the sapi5 rh-voice has the best sound, and the android one works good also.

Hi Supanut
For what it's worth, you can try my add-on SentenceNav to read
malformed PDF documents one sentence at a time:

Try the PDF reader that is built into Google Chrome, or use ABBYY
FineReader to convert the PDF files to another format (HTML or Microsoft
Word).







Due to the above two solutions, I haven’t used Adobe Reader for quite a
while.

I tried a few more untagged PDF files and yep the same issue that I
explained in my first post still occurs.
However this seems to only occur with untagged PDFs, I.E the ones that
once opened presents a dialog to choose the reading order and such.
Since I have to deal with these PDFs on a regular bases for my
university,
is there a way to properly read these PDFs with NVDA?










I know Microsoft Word can open PDF files, but it only works with smaller
PDF files; I tried with a PDF version of an ebook hundreds of pages long and
Microsoft Word seems to hang or it doesn't seem to open (no, the ebook isn't
a protected PDF file).
But since Reader DC 2018 is working fine I'll just stick to it; I still need
to find a way to prevent it from auto-updating.
Edit: I tried changing the subject line in hopes of forcing this reply to
appear in my earlier thread but this doesn't seem to work...hmmm
