Re: NVDA says Edit box unavailable and Getting Mode Messages Spoken

If you don't save settings you have changed with control NVDA key c before closing the program, when you reopen the program, the old settings will be used.  If you tell NVDA not to save settings on exit, you won't loose any settings you have changed in this session or in any future session until you close the program without manually saving the changes you made in that session first.  If you want to try a different synthesizer and don't save settings automatically on exit, you can try it and the synthesizer you were using before will be used when you run the program again.  If you want to use different puncctuation settings and not have them be permanent, they won't be if you don't manually save them.  Who knows what people might want to change temporarily and don't want to accidentally change. 
 
I consider the default save on exit setting to be a really bad default setting.  It's an excellent example of too much automation that easily may have adverse effects on users.
