Re: computer time changing to wrong time

The NVDA Clock Addon has an unfortunate habit of reporting the wrong time or time zone if one has been in another location, or if the time zone has been different, and I've not worked out why.

Source: personal experience.

But if NVDA is not being used, then no, this isn't the issue.

If NVDA wasn’t running, no add-ons were running.  Any time changes when NVDA wasn’t running had nothing to do with the clock add-on.  If you don’t know if you have the clock add-on, its unlikely that you do.  You can see if it is in the list of your add-ons.  If you don’t know how to check, I or someone will tell you.
 
My guess is that your time zone somehow was changed and your computer is trying to set the time to the time zone you have set.  I don’t have Windows 10 and I won’t tell you how to check the time zone.  If you don’t know how, ask and people will tell you.
 
As for the clock add-on, if it is the one I have, where you can set an alarm and tell NVDA how to announce the time when you use NVDA key f12, I see no reason for that add—on to change the time since it has nothing to do with clock time settings.

I have NVDA installed, just as a backup . Don't know if I have the clock. JAWS is my main Screen reader.

Hi Loy,

Are you using NVDA with the Clock Addon by any chance?

Cheers

Today my computer has changed time twice to incorrect time zone. My time setting is set to  set time automatically. What could cause this?.
