Re: A couple of small annoyances.

I think, generally in windows 10 there are some places where Edge is used no matter what you do, but I believe that you need to actually do as you always could and set up default programs for certain file types, but the old way of letting a browser do it on its own never did work in 10, at least for me, I always had to go to the list of file types and select a default program if it was set as a Microsoft one. another reason I prefer windows 7.

Source seems to be the only word of that general pronunciation that it
messed up. It does alright with horse. As my last message I found that
edge is still my default browser. Short between the head sets. Chrome has
a big button labeled make this your default browser but Microsoft must have
written an override. How do I make chrome the default browser?

Screen-reader designers shouldn't make editorial decisions about what a
screen-reader reads that a program displays. Unless this content isn't
seen by sighted people, Windows should read it.

The ispronounciation of source is the result of the synthesizer you are
using and not NVDA. Are you saying it mispronounces that sound in general
or just in the word source?

I recognize that these are small things that the developers may not think
are important enough to fix. Here goes anyway. When I am opening a file
in word I press control O and then tab twice. Nvda says recently opened
files. You haven't opened any files recently. This was not unexpected the
first time I opened a file after installing nvda. However, I use word
every day and the message continues. At first it was a laugh, then a smile
and now it's I wish it wouldn't do that. Another thing is the
pronunciation of s o u r c e. In the united states source rhymes with
horse not with farce as nvda pronounces it. I have tried to fix it in the
dictionary but when I replace the h in horse with an s it goes back to the
rhyme with farce. Well, I guess that's just the way it is.
