Re: Sound Forge 12.5

Does anyone know if jaws is OK with the new version. I was not aware that nvda had been tested with any version since it went mega commercial.
I'm using Goldwave here, but obviously the program you are using has a chequered career and has been written by lots of different folk over the years, I'd not be surprised if accessibility is quite low on their radar. We would normally say, if you are a paying customer and it used to work before, that you should be able to have a word with them about changes like this. I think the general advice is to contact them, and then if they seem not to want to fix it, take either further action or see if anyone can write a patch for nvda, but if the program costs money it can be difficult to find somebody to do it.

Subject: [nvda] Sound Forge 12.5


As some will know, Magix now owns and updates Sound Forge. The most recent release is 12.5.

This version is not working very well at all with NVDA. Even the simplest of activities, highlighting a segment of audio and getting it to play back is not working for me. Also, my position in a sound file tends to jump around in ways I don't understand. Suddenly, I might find myself 2-3 minutes into a file for no reason at all.

Anybody know of a fix for this?
