Weird! I've been using NVDA for a bit over two years without
sound problems on an HP Laptop running Windows7.

I don't know what is going on with
laptop sound cards these days, but
nvda doesn't seam to work well
with some of them.
I tried nvda on toshiba laptops, hp
laptops and lenovo laptops and I
didn't like the way nvda responds
and sounds like.
I have got the impression that this
problem started under windows vista or
7 and above.
I didn't find similar situations under

I don't want to imagine how it would

I searched but I didn't find something on
laptops, sound cards, espeak etc.
If there isn't a similar issue perhaps I can

Yesterday I encountered a very unusual situation
where nvda was working well on a lenovo laptop, but
it became very slow in responding after updating to
the latest creators update of windows 10.
Narator on this particular laptop was responding well

bitrates to choose for espeak in cases where nvda is not
very responsive in some sound cards.
So what are your experiences with laptops these days and
how did you fix any sound issues?
I don't know the exact models right now because the laptops
belong to friends but if necessary I can find out.
