Re: audio ducking.
Hi,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
NVDA is not a communications application (although it could act that way). I'd say NVDA should not have to go through hoops such as registering itself as a communications application to enable audio ducking in Windows 7 (that is, let NVDA do its own thing and become an expert at it, which is receiving, processing and presenting screen information).
As for audio ducking in general: yes API support is required, which came with Windows 8 (technical: oleacc.dll (OLE (Object Linking and Embedding) Accessibility library, the library that implements Microsoft Active Accessibility) introduces audio ducking related functions in Windows 8 and higher; I'll indeed talk about why audio ducking cannot be supported on Windows 7 and earlier and on portable copies on March 14th).
