Re: Thoughts About New Earcons in Test Branch
Thanks for the link to your blog, which is quite good, by the way. Yes, I'm familiar with substituting the default wav files for ones which might be preferable. I may do that but was just wondering what people felt about the existing earcons being used in
the test branch.

Hi David, Not sure about the Sounds Applet in Windows, but customization of NVDA sounds is certainly possible, although in a slightly hacky and unofficial (but not unethical or illegal) way. Check out the third trick which deals with this very task of my recent blog post 'Top 5 NVDA Tips and Tricks You Need To Know' located at https://bhavyashah125.wordpress.com/2017/06/26/top-5-nvda-tips-and-tricks-you-need-to-know/ Thanks.

I had mixed feelings about the new earcons which I noticed in a recent version in the "next" branch. While I generally like them I think that the sound going from focus mode back to browse mode is almost too quiet and I wonder if they should be a tad louder or slightly more pronounced. I'm also wondering if consideration was ever given to the idea of allowing users to change the sounds in the sounds applet in Windows itself, just as you now can with programs like speech recognition and the Window-Eyes screen reader. -- David Goldfield, Assistive Technology Specialist Feel free to visit my Web site WWW.DavidGoldfield.Info<http://WWW.DavidGoldfield.Info>
