Re: Ducking

And also with you, Brian.  Looking through the menus, if I'd looked at changing synthesizers, I would have found it.  But I didn't want to change synths.

Got it now, and thanks.

Audio Ducking Mode

Key: NVDA+shift+d

On Windows 8 and above, this option allows you to choose if NVDA should lower the volume of other applications while NVDA is speaking, or all the time while NVDA is running.

  • No Ducking: NVDA will never lower the volume of other audio.
  • Duck when outputting speech and sounds: NVDA will only lower the volume of other audio when NVDA is speaking or playing sounds. This may not work for all synthesizers.
  • Always duck: NVDA will keep the volume of other audio lower the whole time NVDA is running.


This option is only available if NVDA has been installed. It is not possible to support audio ducking for portable and temporary copies of NVDA
