Re: New NVDA sounds
Or, back up the old waves folder and copy the new wave files into the original folder. You will be asked if you want to copy files for which duplicate names exist. Answer yes when you get such questions and the old files for things like the screen curtain will just be left alone, since there are no duplicately named files in the new waves folder. Replacing the old files with new ones and leaving sounds that shouldn’t be replaced isn’t difficult nor time consuming.

and also, you'll need to copy the old "waves" which are in the newer
NVDA like screen curtain on and off which aren't in these. :)
