Sort of resetting NVDA screen buffer/app module in normal applications

Jacob Kruger
 

Sorry for mentioning this, but, in a manner similar to how you can reset jaws scripts while using a piece of software, is there some way to sort of reload the NVDA app module for a specific piece of software while using it, or to, at the very least, do something similar to NVDA-key + F5 in a web browser, to reload the on-screen buffer, etc.?

Asking since, for example, at times, while writing a message in thunderbird, it seems like NVDA loses track of the contents of the message thus far, and while occasionally, alt+tabbing away, pausing momentarily, and then alt+tabbing back to the message will help, generally, the only real workaround seems to be to unload NVDA, and then reload it.

TIA

Hmm, I've found nvda and f6 is it, in web pages quite good, but not tried it in the Thunderbird client. My guess is that this is a thunderbird thing.
Does this happen more often if other programs are running but not in the focussed window? I've seen that sort of behaviour before both in nvda and other screenreaders like Dolphin ones.

Think NVDA + F5 will only work when focused on something like an HTmL, or word/formatted document, and, for example, now while writing this reply, it doesn't seem to be associated with any activity, since am in editing mode.

And, maye issue has to do with other background applications running - not necessarily actual windows floating behind thunderbird, but, there are quite a few background processes running, with icons in system tray, etc.

Should maybe also have mentioned that this on windows 10 64 bit, but anyway.

And, in terms of this occuring in other apps, yes, it does at times, also generally relating to when busy editing text, etc., but, not necessarily - the primary place I notice it is just when either replying to a message, or when composing something like a longish message.

Stay well

Hi
According to the help User Guide, there is this facility:
10.5. Reload plugins
This item, once activated, reloads app modules and global plugins without restarting NVDA, which can be useful for developers.

Although not mentioned here, NVDA+Ctrl+f3 appears to run this function.

Cheers
Chris
