Re: NVDA Crashing while reading Word document

 

for me, when i press windows e nvda says my computer but in treeview.
i should press tab key one time to return to the list view.
when i tested with windows seven,
windows e opened computer in list view at the first time without using
extra key for me!
i dont know about other versions of windows and there behaviour.

closed. I would think two times would be sufficient. You can tab to the
list view from the tree view but I see no reason to use Windows e unless you
want the tree view. If you use My Computer, you can see everything in that

The log for the currently running NVDA (or most recently run copy if NVDA
isn't currently running) is nvda.log. The log from the time before that
is
nvda-old.log. So, if NVDA has crashed and you've restarted it, the log
from that previous time when it crashed should be nvda-old.log.
Additionally, if NVDA has crashed, there should be a file called
nvda_crash.dmp which has a lot of extra information we can use to work
out
exactly what happened. If you send us all of those files we can have a
look. If you have a copy of the offending word document you are able to
send us, that could be helpful too.

As usual, if you can recreate the issue with NVDA's log level set to
"debug" and add-ons disabled, that really helps too.

Subject: [nvda] ccleaner new version

Hi all.

Well there is a new version out of ccleaner.

CCleaner hasn't had a new version in ages, however, the following things
have been done.

1. all those nice tweaks in the ccleaner.ini no longer function so you
can't manually turn off healthcheck or updater or whatever it is called.

At first there is an announcement when you start.

Don't for any reason interact with it because you will then not be able
to
close ccleaner, just hit alt f4 and it will just do whatever.

2. sadly the old options/ lets turn off healthcheck and only use custom
cleaning button seems to be skipped over by nvda so I don't know, I may
try
with another reader and then see if that puts something in the ini file.

3. healthcheck just like the previous quick clean is a great program,
its
just completely unusable by us.

They thankfully left custom clean alone, however this is probably it, if
they in any way screw up custom clean, then I am going to have to
completely abandon ccleaner because I just can't interact with it
anymore.

I am seriously thinking about sending a recording to ccleaner support
and
all that because we can't even navigate these announcements or
healthcheck
itself, maybe have them set it so its not going to be active anymore or
something.

If only we could choose the option that would be a different thing but
we
can't.

As of now, this ini file is still usefull for its intended purpose of
custom cleaning adjustment so you don't have to interact with the
inaccessible front panel but thats all.

For now if wanting to do something click either tools for custom clean
before you do anything, do not hit anything else other than that.

Re: Changing speech rate not working

Tyler Spivey
 

Try the insert key on the keyboard; maybe that'll work. Or maybe your keyboard just can't do it.

To reassign the gesture, go to the NVDA menu, Preferences, Input gestures. Find it in there and reassign it.

To do that, find Speech in the tree, and expand it. You should then be able to find "Decreases the currently active setting in the synth settings ring".

You can add a gesture with the Add button.

To double check what Tyler suggested - if you press NVDA+1 to turn on "Input help", every key or set of keys you press gets read out (rather than doing whatever it normally does) - if you press an NVDA keystroke, such as NVDA+shift+control+down arrow, NVDA will read out the keys AND what function they do.  If your keyboard is only recognising some of the keys, it should read out something like CONTROL+SHIFT+DOWN ARROW or NVDA+SHIFT+DOWN ARROW etc.

Press NVDA+1 to turn input help off again.

Note that you can also adjust speech settings such as rate from NVDA's settings screen.  Press NVDA+control+v to open the settings directly to the speech / voice settings and tab through that screen to the option you want to change.

Re: Changing speech rate not working

Gene
 

That is true up to a point.  But NVDA key describer doesn't read many combinations of keys in a useful manner.  It has nothing to do with whether it recognizes the keys.  Try shift dash or shift equals or shift plus number keys on the main keyboard.  it does no useful good when it announces such things as shift plus 5.  Of course its shift plus five.  But what character does shift plus 5 cause to be typed?  Its percent, but input mode doesn't tell you that.  Hearing shift plus dash is similarly next to useless.  This is something that should be corrected.

To double check what Tyler suggested - if you press NVDA+1 to turn on "Input help", every key or set of keys you press gets read out (rather than doing whatever it normally does) - if you press an NVDA keystroke, such as NVDA+shift+control+down arrow, NVDA will read out the keys AND what function they do.  If your keyboard is only recognising some of the keys, it should read out something like CONTROL+SHIFT+DOWN ARROW or NVDA+SHIFT+DOWN ARROW etc.

Press NVDA+1 to turn input help off again.

Note that you can also adjust speech settings such as rate from NVDA's settings screen.  Press NVDA+control+v to open the settings directly to the speech / voice settings and tab through that screen to the option you want to change.

Re: NVDA Crashing while reading Word document

Gene
 

Was it NVDA or the synthesizer?  It would be good to test with a different synthesizer as an easy way to see. 
 
the log would, of course, be important but this may make it easier to figure out, and faster, what is or is probably going on.

Hi, Quentin and team,
I am currently reading a straightforward Word document which involves some technical information and so I need to arrow back and forth to verify information. NVDA crashed a few times for no apparent reason. Then I found that when I used the "numpad 2" key to identify a character in the text, NVDA crashed. I had to restart NVDA each time. The document was not disturbed nor did I lose my position only NVDA seemed to suffer. When I restarted NVDA there was no longer an active log for the previous fault.

Question: Is there any way to trap the log after a crash?

Subject: [nvda] ccleaner new version

Hi all.

Well there is a new version out of ccleaner.

CCleaner hasn't had a new version in ages, however, the following things have been done.

1.  all those nice tweaks in the ccleaner.ini no longer function so you can't manually turn off healthcheck or updater or whatever it is called.

At first there is an announcement when you start.

Don't for any reason interact with it because you will then not be able to close ccleaner, just hit alt f4 and it will just do whatever.

2.  sadly the old options/ lets turn off healthcheck and only use custom cleaning button seems to be skipped over by nvda so I don't know, I may try with another reader and then see if that puts something in the ini file.

3.  healthcheck just like the previous quick clean is a great program, its just completely unusable by us.

They thankfully left custom clean alone, however this is probably it, if they in any way screw up custom clean, then I am going to have to completely abandon ccleaner because I just can't interact with it anymore.

I am seriously thinking about sending a recording to ccleaner support and all that because we can't even navigate these announcements or healthcheck itself, maybe have them set it so its not going to be active anymore or something.

If only we could choose the option that would be a different thing but we can't.

As of now, this ini file is still usefull for its intended purpose of custom cleaning adjustment so you don't have to interact with the inaccessible front panel but thats all.

For now if wanting to do something click either tools for custom clean before you do anything, do not hit anything else other than that.

Re: NVDA Crashing while reading Word document

Quentin Christensen
 

NVDA keeps its log in the %temp% folder (you can usually get to that either by pressing WINDOWS+R, typing %temp% and pressing ENTER, or from Windows Explorer (WINDOWS+E) press F2 to get to the address bar, type %temp% and press ENTER).

The log for the currently running NVDA (or most recently run copy if NVDA isn't currently running) is nvda.log.  The log from the time before that is nvda-old.log.  So, if NVDA has crashed and you've restarted it, the log from that previous time when it crashed should be nvda-old.log.  Additionally, if NVDA has crashed, there should be a file called nvda_crash.dmp which has a lot of extra information we can use to work out exactly what happened.  If you send us all of those files we can have a look.  If you have a copy of the offending word document you are able to send us, that could be helpful too.

As usual, if you can recreate the issue with NVDA's log level set to "debug" and add-ons disabled, that really helps too.

Quentin.

Re: NVDA Crashing while reading Word document

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Thanks, Sarah,

 

I did not know about the temp folder. Very useful. I can see the old NVDA log now. Of course, that one is not the one with the crash in it which was quite a few reloads of NVDA ago. Still, I know where to go next time I have a crash.
