Re: NVDA-2016.2 Slows Down with Firefox

 

I have noticed this with my brother and dad who use firefox and chrome, but they have at least 5-10 windows of each.
I rarely have more than 2 tabs open.
The only time I do this is when I for example need to get files but I rarely use more than 1 at a time maybe thats showing my old dos days.
While I could do it now, I don't see any reason to do it or at least as a perminant fixture.

If you have a number of tabs open in Firefox, NVDA will begin to slow down appreciably in the program. Responses to key presses are delayed and using the browser becomes problematic and inefficient. The only solution is to restart firefox.
In previous versions of NVDA, this decrease in responsivness took a while to manifest--sometimes I could work for a whole day and NVDA would not slow down until the next.
However, now it barely takes six to ten hours for this slowness to occur. The only way to reproduce this step is to to work in Firefox for a while, with a number of tabs open.
I do not know if this same slowness occurs in Internet Explorer, Chrome or Edge.
I would like to know if others have experienced this decrease in performance, and what--if any--solutions are available to counteract this problem.

eSpeak add-on: http://files.nvaccess.org/nvda-addons/speechPlayerInEspeak-0.3.nvda-addon
and use to the variant of your liking.

Re: espeak n g no good it sneezes on some words

Well, I'd just suggest, at least, trying a couple of other variants - like said, Gene is my current primary one is Gene, and he doesn't seem to have have same issue - even if I set rate to 100%, but, you could also try adjusting inflection, etc., just in case, if you specifically prefer max variant.

Re: NVDA-2016.2 Slows Down with Firefox

Andre Fisher
 

I don't think NVDA is slowing down, rather, Firefox, through its
latest updates, have begun to become less and less accessible. I am
not speaking from experience, however, because I do not face this
issue. Opening many tabs is not recommended in the first place.
