Hi all,

 

For NvDA users running Version 1809: can you try the following for me and Quentin please:

 

  1. With NVDA 2018.3.x and Windows 10 Version 1809 installed, open File Explorer to any folder, preferably to a location where you have a large number of folders and files.
  2. Run an intensive task such as applying effects to a large audio file in programs such as GoldWave.
  3. Switch to File Explorer and see if NVDA reads folder and file names as you arrow through them.

 

This is a follow-up study to see if what NV Access and I have implemented in NVDA 2018.3 is working. If NVDA freezes, do let us know immediately so we can investigate as early as next week (Quentin and I are in the middle of a short vacation at the moment).

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi Group,


I can confirm the problem. In fact, the only way I even see the window for Windows Explorer/This PC is when I move to the desktop and tab to the task bar and highlight the item that says 'windows explorer one running window.'  When I press enter on this to focus on the folder, everything disappears.  The title bar says: 'Explorer' but nothing shows up.  When Gold Wave is complete with its task, then everything goes back to normal.

Hi,

Is this perhaps on Version 1803 (build 17134)? If yes, then I’m afraid the report below may have to be discarded. Sorry.

Hi.  Actually the problem is more severe when using intensive resource apps like Sound forge and Magix Samplitude.  NVDA totally freezes in the windows explorer view and takes some time to respond even after these apps have gone out of scope.  Cheers!

Hi,

For those reporting continued problems: are you sure you are all running Windows 10 Version 1809 (October 2018 Update/build 17763)? If you all say “no”, then I’m afraid I cannot use your reports for this study. Thanks.

it works just fine. I'm having it max match my X-men folder of movies. I opened another drive and I can move within it with no problems. I was the one who was having the problem with having to wait until a process had completed before I could do anything. thank you very much!!!

Hi all,

 

For NvDA users running Version 1809: can you try the following for me and Quentin please:

 

  1. With NVDA 2018.3.x and Windows 10 Version 1809 installed, open File Explorer to any folder, preferably to a location where you have a large number of folders and files.
  2. Run an intensive task such as applying effects to a large audio file in programs such as GoldWave.
  3. Switch to File Explorer and see if NVDA reads folder and file names as you arrow through them.

 

This is a follow-up study to see if what NV Access and I have implemented in NVDA 2018.3 is working. If NVDA freezes, do let us know immediately so we can investigate as early as next week (Quentin and I are in the middle of a short vacation at the moment).

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi,

Here, I have the same problem here in NVDA 2018.3.2 and NVDA Alpha too. NVDA freezes after almost to fast navigating, reading or sometimes while typing the braile display is also blank, I need to switch the window and go back, then it's fine again.
It is totally strange.

Hello Joseph,


I wish to amend my previous report.  I thought for sure I was running the latest version of Windows.  I was not.  I have since updated to the latest version 18.09 and I did the same test with Goldwave and I was able to see the file with Windows Explorer. The system seemed a bit sluggish, but the files were visible and usable.

Hi,
Yep, thanks for this one. This is going to be used to compare against those
running 2018.3.x.
Cheers,
Joseph

Running the latest version of Windows 10, 1809 Rel 17673, and last NVDA
alpha, the lag in File explorer seems a thing of past...

Hi,

For those reporting continued problems: are you sure you are all
running Windows 10 Version 1809 (October 2018 Update/build 17763)? If
you all say “no”, then I’m afraid I cannot use your reports for this
study. Thanks.
Cheers,

Joseph

Hi.  Actually the problem is more severe when using intensive resource
apps like Sound forge and Magix Samplitude.  NVDA totally freezes in
the windows explorer view and takes some time to respond even after
these apps have gone out of scope.  Cheers!

Hi Group,

I can confirm the problem. In fact, the only way I even see the
window for Windows Explorer/This PC is when I move to the desktop
and tab to the task bar and highlight the item that says 'windows
explorer one running window.'  When I press enter on this to focus
on the folder, everything disappears.  The title bar says:
'Explorer' but nothing shows up.  When Gold Wave is complete with
its task, then everything goes back to normal.
