NVDA announcing new opened windows

Cordelia Scharpf

Speaking of „announcing“ an opened window in Firefox, I have the impression that it occasionally takes quite long for NVDA to “focus”. Might there be some settings – in NVDA, Firefox or both – that can influence/expedite it? As a Braille display user, I would welcome an optional progress dot to ascertain whether or when that process is complete.

Hello Janet, I think it would be great.

Hello all,


Is there an NVDA setting which will have NVDA make a sound when a new window is opened? For example, it would be helpful if, when launching Firefox,  NVDA would make a sound when the window is open. Right now, I wait a few seconds and alt-tab around to see if a new window has opened. Window-Eyes used to do this and it was a great feature.
