Re: Bluetooth speakers on a PC with NVDA?

I'd say don't use them. Latency seems to be the issue, indeed even some laptops recently with internal cards are clipping the start or end of speech since they are somehow trying to anticipate when sound should be enabled to save power.
Its one thing I'm going to have to check on on my new machine.
I just don't like bluetooth due to its delay. For example say you are trying to do DJ stuff with a bog standard set of bluetooth phones you hear just enough delay in your ears to make you sound drunk when you play yourself back. direct connection is king.

Subject: [nvda] Bluetooth speakers on a PC with NVDA?

Hi all,
I am considering a set up with clips ProMedia to Bluetooth speakers for my new PC. I have had less than stellar experiences with phones and Bluetooth speakers or headsets. There is latency, and with my Apple TV and sound bar, it was unusable, because the voice consistently miss the first few syllables due to the delay in the speaker kicking in. This would be totally unusable on a PC of course with the screen reader and software speech. My old PC has a hardware card for speech, and the Mac has USB speakers. So I have no experience with a PC or Mac for that matter, with Bluetooth speakers and software speech. I really like these speakers, but not if they’re going to present issues with the software speech for the screen meter. Comments?
