Are you sure the sounds you are hearing are not caused by
RFI?(radio frequency interference) If so I do not think it
could be handled by NVDA.
If it is something else then perhaps it might work.

People who have followed my comments about sounds may believe
that I don't see much use in sounds in general. That isn't the
case. I think many sounds people rely on don't give much useful
information or duplicate very easily gotten information already
available but here is an idea for sounds that give unavailable
information or information that is not conveniently available.
Awhile ago, I got a new set of headphones that are unusually
efficient. They are so efficient that I can hear the sounds of
the processor working softly. I was initially going to buy an
adapter with a volume control to get rid of the sounds but I
found that they were useful. For example, if I am normalizing a
file, the processor makes a certain kind of sound when I'm using
the program I normalize with. I don't have to check to see when
normalization is finished nor do I need a specific sound,
nonexistent, to tell me. I just wait for the processor sound to
stop. The same when I'm copying long files. I don't have to
check periodically. If I'm downloading something, again, my
processor makes a certain repetetive sound. I know when the
download has finished by simply not hearing that sound any
longer. The same for uploads. I can tell when my computer
shuts down because the processor sound stops. I can tell, if I
issue the reboot command when the shutdown has ended. That
tells me that the reboot should be starting because a certain
sound is heard.
I can tell my computer is rebooting and hasn't gotten stuck
because I can hear certain specific sounds during boot up.
Others may find other useful sounds. Should there be a feature
in NVDA or an add on that allows the user to hear such sounds,
properly amplified, when desired? They would be played through
the sound card and heard over speakers or headphones, whatever
is being used. the function could be toggled on and off.
