Issue With NVDA 2019 RC 2 When Computer Boots

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Group,

When I boot the computer, NVDA 2019.3 RC 2 seems to lock up or unload.  This issue did not occur in any previous version of NVDA either stable or beta.  I hear NVDA start and then it stops speaking.  I wait a minute or so and press some reading keys--such as insert + T for title.  With no speech, if I press the hotkey to start NVDA, it starts.  Is anyone else seeing this issue?

Hi


It seems in the Rc release under general settings then Automatically start NVDA after I log on to Windows check box has become unchecked it will need to be checked again.



So maybe there is something in the RC release that un checks it?


I thought they had fixed that bug it did not show in the betas. I got caught out with it 2 thought the computer was not booting up correctly.

Yes, I’ve seen this before.  I just check the check box.  I’ve seen this with another screen reader as well when I beta tested it.

Hi Group,

This issue did not occur in any previous version of NVDA either stable

or beta.  I hear NVDA start and then it stops speaking.  I wait a minute

or so and press some reading keys--such as insert + T for title.  With

no speech, if I press the hotkey to start NVDA, it starts.  Is anyone

Um there should be a log generated.

look at nvda old .log and send us all lines below nvda initialised.

If there is a traceback which there undoubtedly is it should show up here if it was at all logged.

Hi Shawn,

Well I allowed an update from 2019.3 RC 2 to 2019.3 RC 3 and it seems to have fixed the problem.

Hi,

I suppose it is not the same problem but my experience might help to throw some light on your issue.
I had a problem with the voice settings with the new RC of NVDA in which I chose "Realtek Digital Output" as the output device. This worked for a while and then went silent and refused to speak when I booted the computer. I reset the output device to "Speakers (Realtek High Definition" and NVDA started speaking again and has not stopped since!


All the best,

Cearbhall
