Re: Control Alt N Not Working to Open NVDA

 

I actually don't bother with this at least with nvda.

I do a windows key and r for run and type nvda.

Make sure the shortcut is there and just run it.

If the properties are not conflicting with something else well.

I have seen strangeness with keyboards doing weird things, if its wireless it could be battery related.

The ms boards don't seem to tell status,  the logitech stuff seems to though.

Re: office 2019 word and nvda

 

Also for those having issues on the other list, with office, its a known bug, try running any office program, ie word and updating again.

There aparently is a way to get round that.

The user with the screwed up install probably has to reinstall his computer completely though.

There are 2 bugs according to winaero, and I forget their status.

It happens to me sometimes, but not exactly when I close Office 19.
I can solve this openning the task manager with control + shift + esc and restarting windows explorer process.

If you want to contribute to this problem getting solved, please post your experiences on the issue created for it. The devs do not monitor this list.
There is one senior user reporting on the issue that Office 365 does not have this problem.
If your experience is otherwise (this goes for everyone), please take the time to mention it on the official bug tracker, and follow any trouble shooting steps that are recommended there.

What it shows you depends on how you've selected certain things.  Presuming the More Details view is active, you'll see all processes on running on the computer.  These are going to be presented as far as resource use based on which of the system resource columns (CPU, Memory, Disk, Network, GPU - in that order from left to right after the process name) you have selected to sort on.  I have no idea which is the default, as I'm constantly switching which resource I'm looking at depending on whatever issue I suspect I have.  The three I use most frequently are CPU, Disk, & Memory.

There are tons of tutorials out there on using Task Manager, and it would be worth your while to read one or more if you want to get into all the details.

You must activate the "More Details" control at the bottom if you want all processes (whether yours or not) to be displayed.  This will also toggle the "More Details" control to a "Fewer Details" control.  The toggle keeps between invocations unless you toggle it again, so once you've chosen the "More Details" view, it should stick unless you were to change it back.

Re: Control Alt N Not Working to Open NVDA

Chris Mullins
 

Hi David

Could you get your student to find the NVDA entry on the Desktop then press Alt+enter.  This will open the properties window for the shortcut where you can tab to the shortcut hotkey key control to check if it is properly set.  If it is not set, with focus on the hotkey control, press the letter n (Windows will automatically add the Control+Alt part), then tab to OK and press enter.

 

Cheers

Chris

Hi all,

 

I am working with a student who, when she hits Control Alt N to open NVDA, nothing happens. Same thing with hitting Control Alt J to open JAWS. I know that it is set correctly in settings, so that is not the problem. Any idea what the problem might be? Does it have anything to do with updating drivers or something like that? If so, what do you do?

 

Any assistance is appreciated.

Re: Control Alt N Not Working to Open NVDA

Gene
 

There is a setting in Windows 10 and I don't recall if it prevents short cuts from being placed on the desktop or if it prevents short cut keys from being assigned. I haven't seen it discussed for ;perhaps six months or more. Is there an extension on the desktop? If you open the properties for that extension and tab around, do you see the shortcut key in the field where it should be?

If you start tabbing around, don’t go back or ;press any other key but tab. When you get to the cancel button, activate it with the space bar.

Re: Control Alt N Not Working to Open NVDA

 

Have you restarted the computer?

All triggering of programs via shortcuts is handled via Windows, so the issue lies there.  Sometimes a restart is all it takes to clear whatever "constipation" Windows happens to be experiencing at the moment.  And if you don't know whether or not Fast Startup is enabled, and we're talking a Windows 10 machine, definitely use Restart as that's the only way you can be certain that Windows will be reloaded from disc from scratch when things come back up.
