That's true about slower machines. There is an alternative though, a utility that can get classic old Task Manager in Windows 10 back.

Maybe speech mode has been turned off

Try nvda+S to cycle through the three speech odes

Talk , beeps and off

Re: NVDA With Task Manager

Have you tried narrator?

What happens then?

 

 

Or check task manager for what is consuming all your CPU

It may not be necessarily  an nvda issue

 

Usually this sort of thing is down to a low end spec machine if nothing else is apparent

Sorry should have mentioned that I have tried 3 synths, and they were all the same. 


I have also tried no speech, and got someone with site to watch as I used the computer and it was still lagging.

 

I turned the speech viewer tool on , and the sited person was able to see that most of the time that the computer would move the cursor, and then NVDA would output speech after a delay.

 

I went into windows settings and gave the following files  high performance on the Graphics performance settings.

 

nvda.exe

nvda_eoaProxy.exe

nvda_noUIAccess.exe

nvda_slave.exe

nvda_uiAccess.exe

 

If NVDA is not running the performance of the computer is not much different.  That is the computer seems to perform ok, however there is a delay from NVDA.

 

And here is another problem, which seems to me to be related.

 

Every so often NVDA will read the previous line and it will only read the line which I am on correctly once  I actually highlight that line.

 

There is no other way of getting it to read the line, it just will not read that text. Like never and I mean  never just will not read it.  It sees  the text in one line as another.  This is very hard to explain,

However, if you had one line which had the word cat, and another line which had the word dog,

Nvda would read the line which said cat, then you would arrow down to the line with the word dog, and nvda would say cat.

This problem  is intermittent. .

NVDA crashed on a friend's computer

Rosemarie Chavarria
 

Hi, everyone,


A friend of mine is having a problem with her computer and NVDA crashing. She just called me and said when she turns on her computer, she gets the windows sounds but no speech. I had her do a couple of things like hitting alt control N to bring NVDA back up. I also had her hit her windows logo key and type NVDA in the search box. Nothing we did brought NVDA back up. What can she try?


Thanks so much for your help in advance.


Rosemarie


Re: News – NV Access - NVDA 2020.3 Released #nvaccessnewsfeed

Luke Robinett <blindgroupsluke@...>
 

Wow! The NVDA developers really outdid themselves with this one! I am particularly excited about the new options for visual studio compatibility and what is listed here as significant improvements to visual studio code, given I use both of these applications on a daily basis myself. Thank you guys so much. Looking forward to downloading and trying out the new version!

I experience noticeable slowness in the task manager screen as well. To be clear, I’m referring to the screen reached by pressing control alt delete followed by alt T, where I can access all running processes. It takes a long time for the list to be populated, but once it’s there, it’s good. I don’t have particular issues with NVDA slowness elsewhere though, so I don’t know if our issues are related. Hope you figure out the problem

Keyboard shortcuts for activating configuration profiles?

Luke Robinett <blindgroupsluke@...>
 

Hey gang. I’ve browsed through the documentation and didn’t find anything on this, but it may be in there and I just missed it. If so, feel free to direct me to the appropriate section. I was wondering if there are keyboard shortcuts that would allow me to quickly switch between different configuration profiles without having to go to the configuration profile dialog box. I’m thinking something like a combination of modifier keys followed by the numbers one through zero which would correspond to profiles one through 10, for example. If this doesn’t exist, would there be brought enough interest in such a feature that I could add a feature request to the GitHub repo? Thanks.

And if you have tried a different synthesizer, how does Narrator perform or a JAWS demo? We have no information at this point confirming that the problem is with NVDA or something else.

I am having major issues with nvda running slowly, in all applications for

Is there any list of steps I can take to just make it go fast.

I have uninstalled it,
I have wiped my computer and still the same
My computer runs fine it is just NVDA which is slow.
I have no addons installed
I am running windows 10
Is there any graphics acceleration options I need to change?


So, can we just put a go faster button on NVDA? :-)

Re: Spellchecking with NVDA

Quentin Christensen
 

Also re spell check and reading the word in context - it depends on the version of Word.  In Office 2016 from memory, the easiest way to read the current word in context was to press escape - which, since F7 took you to the next spelling error, and escape then closed it taking you back to the document at that point, it would take you to the spelling error.  In Office 365, it does not read the misspelt word in context when you open spell check (actually now spell check opens a summary with the number of errors - I'm not sure if there is a setting to toggle that?  I can't see one).

Another option for spell check in Word is you can press alt+f7 which doesn't use a spelling pane, but instead jumps to the next error and opens the context menu to the first suggestion.  It only reads the misspelt word, not the context, and if you want to read the context, you'll need to press alt to close the menu and read it.  It's the same as moving to the misspelt word in the text, pressing the applications key to open the context menu which automatically goes to spelling.

Quentin.

It appears to me that Window-eyes had a feature that moved you, while in a document, from one word flagged as misspelled and another.  F7 will, do mostly the same thing in the spell check dialog.  As far as I know, and I would like to be wrong about this, in the spell check dialog, NVDA doesn't have a read word in Context feature.  JAWS will read the word in the sentence where it appears if you issue the command to do so.  It would be valuable if NVDA added this ability.
