Well, ahem, if you're using the illegal pirated copy, I can't help you.

Which version of Eloquence are you using?

As you say, it's an Eloquence issue, rather than NVDA. It does read with Windows OneCore, SAPI 5 and eSpeak NG. Hopefully can advise further? ^QC

There is an issue where NVDA fails to start if Windows is set to an unsupported or impossible language / locale setup. We're looking into it, but I'm glad you got yours working and apologise for the inconvenience. ^QC

Let us know if you have any other questions (I did see the question this morning, thanks Marco for the heads up!) but Florian was quick to give you the answer :) You can also get to that synthesizer selection dialog with NVDA+control+s if that helps.

Ok well that's a use case I don't recall seeing in that original issue, so do feel free to create a new issue. Just because an issue gets closed at one point, doesn't mean it can't be revisited, particularly with new use cases :)

Excellent! That should be in NVDA 2018.4 when it comes out later this year. You are welcome to keep using either that Alpha build, or install and stay on the latest alpha build in the meantime, though be aware that we don't guarantee the stability of the alpha builds,.

That's a different feature, so I'll address is separately. This has come up before with general navigation, not sure about find specifically. Here's the discussion on general navigation wrapping: Open a new issue if you can put a good use case for it.

There are two open requests for this and it looks like actually several people have written code for this. So it looks like a matter of when, rather than if it gets implemented: and

Assuming you are using NVDA 2018.3.2, could you please try the latest "alpha" build from: Once downloaded, it runs like a new version of NVDA. Choosing "Continue" should work to test this rather than needing to install. Let me know if that version works.

Apologies for the late reply - is the crash still happening with the latest snapshot (which looks like it came out after you posted). Running that build - alpha-16220,87eb36f8 - I'm not getting a crash. I'd be interested in a copy of the NVDA log set to debug level if possible

Wouldn't it be inefficient in most cases? The best places to post would be our issue tracker: - If you could write up a good use case with it that would help the argument for it.

Can you please provide us with your exact NVDA, Firefox, Thunderbird and Windows versions?

I have not experienced this, nor heard of anyone else experiencing this yet, though we do take crashes seriously, thanks for reporting. However, we must remind you that we do not recommend using NVDA snapshots in a work, school or other production environment.

Not quite free, but we've had only positive feedback about our "Basic Training for NVDA" training material: The Electronic version (which includes HTML, Word, ePub & Kindle KFX formats) is only $23 Australian which works out to roughly $21 US Dollars.

Do you recall what you did before you restarted the computer that last time? I'm used to seeing people with problems in between installing NVDA and next restarting, not for them to start after that point :) Does rebooting again help?

Does it happen every time on particular websites, or always (or randomly)? In the NVDA tools menu (NVDA+N then T) there is an option called "COM Registration fixing tool", which may help. Have you installed or uninstalled anything lately? And are you using any NVDA add-ons?

Good point, I've updated the instructions now and they are ready for the next round of errors to be found :)

You're welcome - we've got a lot of replies to the question, and I haven't been answering all of them, but since you asked :)
