speech rate changes to defaults


George Kerscher
 

Hello,

 

On 2021.1, I will be working and the speech rate changes to the default rate of 9. I have been going to the desktop and then go to the speech preferences and set the rate to 24 or 25, which I like. It then works for a long time until it does this again.

 

Just a bug or any other thoughts? Using Microsoft core voices, because my Eloquence is not working yet.

Hi,

 

It happened again this morning. My configuration was saved. It seems that only the rate reverts to 9 on the rate setting.

 

Any thoughts?

George, if you are using the Windows OneCore voices then I’m a bit baffled at what you are experiencing. What version of Windows are you using?

Are you running any addons? If so does the problem occur if you restart NVDA with addons disabled?

If this is changing in Windows itself, and that's how I read what has been offered so far, then my standard advice for fixing "Windows Weirdnesses" applies:

1. Using SFC (System File Checker) and DISM (Deployment Imaging Servicing and Management) to Repair Windows 8 & 10
then, if that didn't fix the issue:
2. Doing a Windows 10 Repair Install or Feature Update Using the Windows 10 ISO file

Neither of the above can hurt anything.

Make sure the option to save configuration on nvda exit is unchecked

Then again set your desired setting and save

 

So whatever happens nvda should start with your saved configuration now

I don’t know where the settings are saved.  Evidently, something is not being retained.  If you run an installed version, are any of these settings stored in the registry?  If so, the registry has some sort of minor problem and is losing it.  If not, it is evidently being lost wherever it is stored.  I have no solution.
 
Is there any pattern to when the setting is lost?  If you loose it when you reboot, then that would strongly imply a minor registry problem.

That will accomplish nothing.  The default behavior of NVDA is to save settings on exit.  So, if the default is being used, any time the program was exited or Windows was shut down, closing the program, the changes would have been saved after they were made.  Manually saving them before closing the program accomplishes nothing but saving them manually, not automatically.  You are just saving them earlier.
 
If the program isn’t set to save automatically, you are manually saving the settings applying your suggestion, so they are being saved either way.

That is an unsupported assumption. Nothing was said indicating that.  Without asking, you don’t know if that is the case.  Also, if the change occurred while the program is running, the person would, assumedly, reset the incorrect setting.

Hello,

 

On 2021.1, I will be working and the speech rate changes to the default rate of 9. I have been going to the desktop and then go to the speech preferences and set the rate to 24 or 25, which I like. It then works for a long time until it does this again.

 

Just a bug or any other thoughts? Using Microsoft core voices, because my Eloquence is not working yet.

Maybe you should read the original message again, maybe it is you who is making assumptions

That is an unsupported assumption. Nothing was said indicating that.  Without asking, you don’t know if that is the case.  Also, if the change occurred while the program is running, the person would, assumedly, reset the incorrect setting.

But if its set to save automatically on exit  then whatever is causing the settings to be changed is occurring whilst using nvda is running , so when the nvda is set to save on exit then it will save the change at that moment in time

That will accomplish nothing.  The default behavior of NVDA is to save settings on exit.  So, if the default is being used, any time the program was exited or Windows was shut down, closing the program, the changes would have been saved after they were made.  Manually saving them before closing the program accomplishes nothing but saving them manually, not automatically.  You are just saving them earlier.

 

If the program isn’t set to save automatically, you are manually saving the settings applying your suggestion, so they are being saved either way.

Then again set your desired setting and save

 

So whatever happens nvda should start with your saved configuration now

Hi,

 

It happened again this morning. My configuration was saved. It seems that only the rate reverts to 9 on the rate setting.

 

Any thoughts?

No.  You said to save the settings manually, which the user did.  the problem occurred after the settings were saved.  You appear to be saying that the automatic save the settings would save the wrong settings after the settngs are manually saved.  It won’t.  When you manually save the settings, the new settings replace the old ones in the configuration file.  Shutting down the machine will not cause old settings to replace the nhhew ones.  They no longer exist.

For accuracy and completeness, I should add that its possible something might go wrong with NVDA and no settings would be saved when they are saved either automatically or manually.  That is very unlikely and since no settings would be saved, that would likely have been discussed if it were the cause of the problem. 
 
Aside from that, the only time I can think of automatic saving not working where manual saving would is if the program crashes on exit.  If it crashes too soon, the automatic savings function might not have run before the crash.

No.  You said to save the settings manually, which the user did.  the problem occurred after the settings were saved.  You appear to be saying that the automatic save the settings would save the wrong settings after the settngs are manually saved.  It won’t.  When you manually save the settings, the new settings replace the old ones in the configuration file.  Shutting down the machine will not cause old settings to replace the nhhew ones.  They no longer exist.

Also, the person tried your solution yesterday and the problem recurred.

That is an unsupported assumption. Nothing was said indicating that.  Without asking, you don’t know if that is the case.  Also, if the change occurred while the program is running, the person would, assumedly, reset the incorrect setting.

But if its set to save automatically on exit  then whatever is causing the settings to be changed is occurring whilst using nvda is running , so when the nvda is set to save on exit then it will save the change at that moment in time

That will accomplish nothing.  The default behavior of NVDA is to save settings on exit.  So, if the default is being used, any time the program was exited or Windows was shut down, closing the program, the changes would have been saved after they were made.  Manually saving them before closing the program accomplishes nothing but saving them manually, not automatically.  You are just saving them earlier.

 

If the program isn’t set to save automatically, you are manually saving the settings applying your suggestion, so they are being saved either way.

Make sure the option to save configuration on nvda exit is unchecked

Then again set your desired setting and save

 

So whatever happens nvda should start with your saved configuration now

Hi,

 

It happened again this morning. My configuration was saved. It seems that only the rate reverts to 9 on the rate setting.

 

Any thoughts?

Try saving the configuration after you have set it to what you want it to be set at

Hello,

 

On 2021.1, I will be working and the speech rate changes to the default rate of 9. I have been going to the desktop and then go to the speech preferences and set the rate to 24 or 25, which I like. It then works for a long time until it does this again.

 

Just a bug or any other thoughts? Using Microsoft core voices, because my Eloquence is not working yet.
