Fix for explorer crashing in Windows 7

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi everyone,

An issue which has plagued many of our Windows 7 users lately, particularly those who use the mouse, has been explorer crashing in the start menu and other windows.

The latest "Alpha" snapshot *should* address this problem.  I'd like to encourage anyone who has experienced this issue to please test the latest alpha and let us know if that has in fact fixed the problem.

You can download the latest alpha from: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/snapshots/ - go to the first "download" link.  If you haven't used an alpha build before, when you run the downloaded file, it looks like any other version of NVDA.  It gives you the license agreement with options to install, create a portable version or continue running.  To test this particular fix, you should be able to simply "Continue running" (Which runs a complete version of NVDA, but any changes to settings you make won't be saved).  If you find it particularly useful, you can install it, but note that it will offer to update each day or each time a new alpha build is released if you leave check for updates enabled.  You will also likely note that it "beeps" more often than a regular stable version of NVDA.  This is because it beeps each time an error is encountered.  Often, however, errors are dealt with in the background with no adverse effects, so in a stable version of NVDA, a user would never notice it.  In the alpha builds, it beeps so that developers testing the build can know that an error has occurred.

All things going well, this fix is due to be included in NVDA 2019.3 when it comes out.  Sorry, I don't have an anticipated date at this stage, but we will release one or more beta versions, then one or more "RC" or release candidate builds and then the final version.

Once again, if you've had the issue with Explorer crashing in Windows 7, please do try the latest alpha snapshot and let us know how it is working for you.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Tips for reporting issues: Please don't say "Using the latest version of Windows 10 and NVDA" when reporting issues

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi everyone,

I've seen a few people report issues lately, and say something along the lines of "I'm using the latest versions of Windows 10 and NVDA".

I'm not having a go at anyone over that, but I wanted to share the point of view of trying to recreate your issue in order to help solve it.  Even though it seems obvious to you what you are using, it may not narrow it down as much as may be needed to troubleshoot the issue you are having.

With Windows 10 - the latest version could mean:
- The latest fast insider build
- The latest slow insider build
- The latest Skip Ahead insider build
- The latest regular consumer build
- The consumer build from six months before that as Microsoft can do very staggered rollouts over three months or more.
- An earlier consumer build because Microsoft have determined that your system can't run the most recent update.

For NVDA, there aren't quite as many options if you are running the "Latest" version, but that still could be:
- The latest alpha build
- Another alpha build from the last 24 hours (we might release more than one alpha build in a day, but if you are relying on the automatic check for updates, it will only check once a day).
- The latest Beta or RC build (if we are in a beta or RC cycle at the time)
- The latest stable build

So, that's something like 24 potential combinations of "the latest versions" of Windows 10 and NVDA!  (I must admit, even I didn't think it was that many when I started writing this).

When reporting an issue (in the group, via email, on GitHub, or anywhere else), could you please try to:
- Give the Windows build number.  To find that press WINDOWS+R, type WINVER and press ENTER.
- Give the NVDA version number.  Press NVDA+N, then H, then A.
- Give the version of any other program you are using (EG if you are having a problem in PowerPoint, please advise its version or build number).
- Give specific steps to recreate the issue you are having.

All of that will help anyone trying to assist you to recreate the issue and give advice as quickly as possible without needing to come back and ask lots of additional questions.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: links and buttons problem found.

 

I think that is not compatible and is either being worked on or has been pulled.

I forgot its state.

Afternoon everyone.

I've found the problem or rather the cause of my problems.

After reinstalling my windows twice this morning I found that when I
reinstalled my NVDA addons, the buttons would just read as apply, okay
and cancel without saying button before it and the same went for the
links as well.

I uninstalled all my addons and reinstalled them one by one until I
found the one that was causing the problems. It is the AudioThemes3D
that causes my NVDA to stop telling me when I'm on a link or button,
not windows.

Re: Synthesizer issues? And searching for one.

 

To be honest for what they are, I wouldn't be paying 40 bucks a voice.

The reason I got the code factory voices it was because I got all of them in a package.

The next voices I will probably get if I do, are the more expensive acapella infovox data key flash disk if I ever bother again with this.

For what I use, eloquence handles a lot of retro games, and vocaliser will handle just about everything else.

While its not realspeak solo by any push, at least its 64 bit and compatible with later oses, which is why I bothered in the first place.

You may wish to go into your options menu & uncheck the "enable live
preview" option. I found this dramatically solved my problems w/Excel.
I also unchecked the "show minitoolbar on selection".

define the header and I also need you to confirm the row number which you

After that, we need to check the Row header process. Row headers are

would hear the results of your selection when you arrow up or down on the

There is no way that NVDA can remember a previous cell and repeat it to you

Would you check your document settings in NVDA (NVDA+control+d) and see if
anything looks odd to you and report back what you find?

You say that you hear the content of a previous cell when you arrow. Is
that
when you arrow up or down? Or, is it when you arrow left or right?



It would be a help if you could use column and row references to clarify
your examples so that we can picture the relationship between the cells

Here are some questions to get started:

Re: excel problem

Robert Doc Wright godfearer
 

One more question. When you arrow up or down or right or left to an empty cell does it still say a number?

 

It sounds like your headers are working. Check to make sure that when you turned headers on that you were on the row that had your column titles and not your first entry.

Hi, Larry,

Id like to try to help.

 

Can you give us a real example and try to give a more complete description of the Excel  table?

 

Here are some questions to get started:

  1. Have you told NVDA which row or column is to be the header row?
  2. Exactly what number does Excel speak when you go to edit a new cell?
  3. Is the spoken number in the adjacent cell or somewhere else in the table?

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

Hi All,

 

I am using the latest windows 10 and nvda.  I am using excel 2016. 

I created a spreadsheet to track my blood pressure but when I go to enter a number nvda speaks a prior number.  Is there a setting I need to change?  Also I have nvda set to announce headers but, it doesn’t do it.  Thanks for any help.

Well I actually have it working now with Automatic, but it’s still not showing up in the Braille displays list.  I will restore or uninstall/reinstall if it continues.

 

Thanks,

Jonathan

Which version of the screen reader do you have? I have a Brailliant BI 40 here and it seems the driver is still here, but I can  see if I can figure out what’s going on. If worse comes to worse you can restore NVDA to factory defaults, or failing that, reinstall NVDA from scratch.

For some reason, the option for the Humanware Braille display driver has disappeared from the list of Braille Displays in NVDA.  I am using the latest version, and even tried reinstalling NVDA but this hasn’t helped.  It was there last week, but isn’t now.  Any ideas on how I can restore it and how it may have disappeared?

 

Thanks,

Jonathan

When you say it speaks a prior number is this the number from the previous cell or the top of the column or row?
