Re: [nvda] Nvda start up question
When you say choose your device, it would be good to say after that to up or down arrow to select a device, even if there is only one. That is, if it is that way in Windows 10. In Windows 7, even if there is only one device, you have to up or down arrow to select it. The space bar doesn't work and if nothing is selected, there is nothing but an o.k. button.

if it is the sound enhancements doing it one of the tutorials I have not
posted yet might help it is a draft where to look.
Disabling sound enhancements in Windows
Sometimes when there is an update for Windows, you may hear a buzzing
sound (and other strange noises) from the computer while using NVDA.
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 similar for
other Windows 10 computers.
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. Press the
The next screen should come up with 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 say Disable all enhancements. This
should be a check box. Please note, in some cases, after you tab once
(after the enhancements tab) you might need to arrow down or tab to
locate the disable all enhancements checkbox. You will hear other stuff
for the sound card being spoken out, but they can be left unchecked. You
will need to tab to hear the "disable enhancements" checkbox if you
arrowed down the list of enhancements and check the checkbox with the
Spacebar. You will then need to apply and ok your changes with the Spacebar.
Now, those weird buzzing sounds etcetera should be gone!
