Re: bug: NVDA causes all audio to play through both headphones and the pc speakers

Hi Quentin,

I don't unplug or plug the headphones for this to happen. For some reason, audio begins playing through both devices. But restarting NVDA multiple times, or a single time causes audio to get routed correctly again.

It sounds like it might be your audio driver.  NVDA by default sends its sound through the default audio device, unless you set a specific device in the NVDA synthesizer dialog. Are you plugging or unplugging your headphones or speakers?  I know Windows will often jump the default device to whatever you just plugged in.

Does setting NVDA Synthesizer output to a specific sound card help?
Normally it defaults to Microsoft sound mapper, but maybe it is doing
something odd. So maybe if you give it a specific card it will work
around the problem. Still a good bug report though, as something is
going on with the code that shouldn't be.
