Could you perhaps send us a log please? Press NVDA+R on something first to hopefully add an entry about what happens at that point. The page at has info on getting to the log file, Could you please send to info@nvaccess.org with a quick recap of the issue.

Do you still have the (old) OCR add-on? That can cause issues. Otherwise, if you press NVDA+Q then down arrow to "Restart with add-ons disabled" does it help (if so, check for updates to addons). Otherwise what language do you use & which win 10 languages do you have installed?

I don't think it was something we were aware of with this specific release. We do recommend restarting the PC after updating NVDA (specifically "restarting", as "shut down" on Win 10 with fast start enabled doesn't clear everything). Sounds like it's a bit late to ask for a log.

Something updating, such as Dropbox as others suggested, can cause this kind of behaviour. A debug level log might help. If you could get one with NVDA doing this, could you email it to us at info@nvaccess.org, please? has info on the log file.

How did you go with getting the Brailliant working? From our user guide: If connecting via USB with HumanWare protocol, first install the manufacturer drivers. These aren't needed if the using OpenBraille protocol. Maybe reinstall the Humanware driver?

I must confess I haven't used Access much, but again if you could email me more information, particularly steps to reproduce and also which version of Access, I'll have a look into it.

Re hanging, that definitely shouldn't be happening. If you could email me with more information (steps to reproduce and a log) that would be great. See for info on our log, and email me (Quentin) at info@nvaccess.org

Re suggestions, we have an issue for (I think) that here: Feel free to "subscribe" to that issue for updates, or add any extra information on it.

If you need help with GitHub, or for me to create the issue, let me know. The reason we encourage individuals to file issues themselves is that then you will be notified about the progress of the issue, or comments, rather than me needing to come back & clarify queries with you.

And thank you for your support Peter! Is there anything in particular in Excel and Access which isn't working or which you'd like to see improved?

It's not a t present. The best suggestion is to file a GitHub issue outlining why it would be useful, and what action you would like (change the punctuation level to work on none, or add an option to choose the punctuation level of emoji etc):

Actually the worst bit was I DID spell it out as well, so I can't really just blame a type - someone else pointed it out earlier and I fixed it, and when I read your comment, for some reason I realised to go and change where I'd spelt it too.
