Re: sounds ?


No usb headphones! no I get other sounds when I try to do things it would rather I not haha I was having an issue witth files when I opened 1 on a flashdrive and tried closing it for some reason it was telling me it was already opened even though it wasn't hmm a weird quirk that seems fixed after computer guy did some updates yesterday! and btw he said NVDA looked like it had crashed not sure that caused the sounds issue but it explains why it wasn't reading documents correctly and was double reading other things!
 Thanks all!

I also don't get such sounds when using NVDA.  Is that the only sound that is missing?

I don't know what version of Windows you are using, I'm using W10 and there
is an app called Volume Mixer where you can set volume/balance/mute values
for in my case Speakers, NVDA and System sounds but I suspect there will be
entries for other sound generating apps you may have installed.  I don't get
a ping when I rech the top/bottom of a document using NVDA.  I seem to
recall Jaws had a feature that did this.  On checking through the Windows
sound event list I can't see anything for top/bottom of document but these
events are listed for Kurzweil 1000 which I no longer have installed.

What version of nvda is it. I do notice that the version just prior to xp
support being dropped regularly gave the shut down nvda sound twice as it
exited, and apart from that nothing seems to have been wrong unless you
actually somehow I did have two copies running together which can occur but
nowadays does not, as far as I know.
 I concur, go back to a restore point Most of my  operating days have a
restore point when the anti virus update happens, but system restore needs
to be on for this to occur.
 Also, there is a piece of software called erunt that saves the registry
daily into folders in windows, and can be restored by simply running the
executable for the date needed.
 If its a registry issue this is all you need, but a file issue is better
solved by a restore point.

I don't remember why I shut it down the first time but rebooted twice
because NVDA was not reading my documents properly, I don't know how to
explain other than to say it would read a line and then nothing even though
I knew there was something there and I tried maximizing the document but it
didn't fix the issue and I also noticed that it kept reading things in
double and when I rebooted heard the sound it made when shutting down twice!

I'll check volume settings since I tried checking sounds in control panel
and found nothing to fix!

  Do other sounds work?  I think the sound you are describing is one Windows

sound, which isn't working.  This sounds to me like the kind of problem that

should be solved by running a restore point.  If you don't have one, I'm not

sure how you might solve the problem.  In future, please describe the
problem in detail as you did in this message.  Based on your current
description, most of my previous message appears not to apply.  This isn't
that Windows sounds aren't working in general.  One Windows sound may not be

and I addressed that in this message.

  NVDA is speaking fine now yesterday it kept double talking so shut it down

for a couple hours since a reboot did no good but sounds lost are the ping
it makes when am at the top or bottom of a document as well as the sound it
makes if  try to do something it doesn't want me to do!

    Is there any sounds at all on the computer? or are you getting Window
sounds but not having nvda speaking?
