Re: [orca-list] totem causes lag in orca was Re: heads up. liblouis 3.2.0 breaks orca and an issue with deadbeef audio p

I have just tried to play an avi file (xvid for the video and an AC3 audio track). I find Totem super responsive as compared to other video players. Orca is not freezing here when running it as a normal window and also in full screen mode.
I do have optimus dual graphic on this laptop however I am only using Intel part of it.
I'm running arch linux, gnome 3.24 and orca master.
Might this be with specific videos?
When you run totem from a terminal, are you getting any errors printed to stdout?

One more issue to report. This is an odd one. But steps to reproduce. Open the totem movie player, now called videos with a video playing. After about ten seconds, orca will stop responding. Focus on the desktop, and after a few seconds, if you're lucky, orca will come back. If not, you'll  have to toggle orca back off and on again, at which point it will happen again when you alt tab back to the videos windows. This happens with both orca stable and master.

Thanks, and I'm changing the subject so people don't get confused.

Hi all

Liblouis 3.2.0 was just released this past Friday, on the sixteenth of june. I updated a local copy of the arch Linux package of liblouis to use the new version, and orca promptly wouldn’t start the next time my computer restarted. I’m not sure of the exact error because obviously without speech I couldn’t capture a debug log, but downgrading  liblouis fixed it. This occurred in both orca stable and orca master. Also, I’m having a lot of issues with the deadbeef audio player. IThe playlist area where the songs you’re currently playing is completely inaccessible. Not even the “where am I” command can figure out what sort of control it is. I’m assuming it’s a list or table, but I’m not positive. It uses gtk2, so I was hoping joanie would be willing to take a look to see if she can figure out a fix in orca, otherwise I’ll have to file a bug with deadbeef. I’m on my windows tablet, hence the windows 10 mail blurb in the message footer.
