Just wrote up a quick tutorial this was done for a windows 10
machine 1809 the steps which I will tidy up later on and paste on
my website under trouble shooting.
I think when you get to the sound enhancements tab you will need
to tab once or a couple of times it depends what nvda is focused
or arrow through the listthen tab to hear the check box.
I had the box unchecked and also checked to see what it done and
what you hear.
disable sound enhancements in Windows when you hear wierd noises
some times when there is a update for Windows etc you may hear a
buzzing sound and other strange noises from the computer when
If this is the case you will need to turn off sound enhancements
in Windows for your sound card. The steps to turn it off may be
simular for other Windows 10 computers or earlier versions of
Press the Windows key and in the search box type sound settings.
when it comes up with this result, press the enter key.
The first option might say Choose your output device Speakers
(High Definition Audio Device. next tab once to device properties
then press the enter key. The next screen that comes up will say
home. If you tab about 7 times you will then hear NVDA say
Additional device properties then press the enter key.
The next screen should come up with say speaker properties Shift
tab back once or twice until you hear NVDA say General. there are
5 tabs there use your right arrow key to get to the enhancements
tab then tab a couple of times until you hear NVDA says Disable
all enhancements. Please note after you tab once after the
enhancement tab you might need to arrow down or tab to locate this
disable all enhancements checkbox. You will hear other stuff for
the sound card been spoken out but they can be left unchecked.
You will need to tab to hear the disable enhancements check box if
you arrowed down the list of enhancements.
and check the check box with the space bar. You will then need to
apply and ok your changes with the space bar.
Now those weird buzzing sounds etc should be gone.

The first thing should be sound in settings. Press enter on
You should then find that your primary output device is
automatically from the dropdown provided. If not, select it.
Then tab once to "Device properties" and press enter.
Next you tab (I believe) seven times, to "Additional device
properties", and press enter.
Press shift tab, which takes you to the tabs of the properties
and move right to "Advanced".

There are more straight forward ways of getting to those
now, but that's the one I used tonight, so it's most fresh in
