That sounds like an issue with eSpeak. If you are on the eSpeak NG user list, it would be worth checking there: I had a report from someone about issues with Russian pronunciation as well and was going to look into that tomorrow too ^QC

Could you please send us a copy of your NVDA log to info@nvaccess.org See for info on accessing the log file. It should be in your %temp% directory as nvda.log for the current log and nvda-old.log for the previous log.

We have just released 2018.3.1. This is a minor update fixing a crash in Mozilla Firefox 32 bit. Again if you rely on nvdaRemote, please delay upgrading for now:

It was only a few weeks after the new page went live that someone wrote asking about it and we wondered whether to update with the old text - we've only had a couple of inquiries though.

Does the NVDA settings issue still continue to occur after restarting NVDA or rebooting the PC?

We have not yet been able to track down that specific bug. We agree it is very annoying, but all we can recommend is to close Firefox before updating at this stage.

If you could send me a copy of your log, ideally at debug level, I can have a look and see if we can help get to the bottom of it. - The page at has more info on the log, if needed.

Someone else mentioned that recently. Firstly have you rebooted since updating? Next, if you restart NVDA with addons disabled does it help? Finally, if you could send me (to info@nvaccess.org) a log at debug level I'll look into it - ^QC

FWIW, I've done the same thing previously and needed to be reminded to reboot. Glad everything is working for you again anyway :)

As long as you have something you are happy with, that's great. My point was really that price and quality are independent of each other. And if you'd ever like to help troubleshoot any issues, we'd be glad to have your input. ^QC

We've worked very hard to develop a funding model that doesn't disadvantage users by forcing them to pay thousands for a screen reader. That's why NVDA is free, not because it's less functional. If there are problems, we can only fix them if we know & can reproduce them. ^QC

Ok, I'm using 64-bit Windows & FF also (I'm on Fast insider Windows though haven't yet updated to this morning's build). It's not doing it for me (of course). Could you send me your NVDA Log pls? Info@nvaccess.org ^QC

If you can give us reproducible steps for lag &/or NVDA log I'll look into it. Also I'm pleased to advise you CAN call people for tech support: - (Yes it's paid, but how many hours could you buy for the cost of another screen readers license?...) ^QC
