Subject: Re: [nvda] Setting global speech rate across various profiles
Thanks for the clarification. The problem I have is that because I accidentally changed the rate whilst in excel, NVDA no longer seems to respect the global setting so in your example if I go to firefox which is using the normal profile and change the rate, my speech rate changes no longer apply to excel. I have to adjust the rate when I go back in to excel and this would also apply to other custom settings. To keep things simple, I think the option to have settings apply across the board would be easier to deal with. In jaws for example, the behaviour is that any changes you make via keyboard shortcuts to adjust speech rate apply globally. But if you manually go in to jaws settings for a specific app and change things via the settings dialogues, then those changes apply to that specific app only. Perhaps an option could be introduced which allows you to enable global changes via shortcuts to apply across the board, but if someone wants specific settings they have to go in to the settings dialogue to change the settings permanently? Either that or a priority system could be introduced for profiles where various aspects of settings can be given priority based on the global settings. So for example if the global speech settings have a priority of 1 for excel but I set excel's priority to 2, NVDA would respect my global preferences for a given settings category first. Of course if someone has a way I can revert a certain aspect of excel's settings such as the speech rate instead of me deleting the profile and starting over, please let me know. That would also solve the problem. As things stand, because i accidentally changed my speech rate I have to delete the excel profile and start over, being careful not to change my speech rate or voice settings whilst in excel.
