Re: Is there a way to change the volume of NVDA's sounds?

Hi Jim

It’s a series of keystrokes enabling you to alter aspects of the current synthesizer settings on the fly.  You hold down NVDA+Control, then left/right arrows give you access to Volume, voice, rate, rate boost and pitch then loops back to volume, hence the “ring” analogy.  Once you have selected one of the above controls, still holding down the NVDA+Control keys, use up/down arrows to adjusct the parameter for that control.

Cheers

I hope this question isn’t stupid, but what is the ring people are talking about in this thread?

I don’t know why, but using the ring only lowers speech and has no effect on NVDA sounds.  I expected the ring and the dialog setting to do the same thing, but the settings aren’t identical in what they do.

Weird! I'll have to go and try that because I'd think lowering the
volume with the synth ring would do the exact same thing. Maybe they are
lowered, but if so they're still significantly louder than speech. It's
also good to know that with the sound off focus changes will be
announced verbally, since I've never messed with that. Thanks all!


Oh yeah, I'm watching a video music lesson. Here it is on Youtube.

I'm doing it from their website because I just started paying for all
the lessons, but the volume's all the way up. He's just kind of quiet.
Other lessons are louder so they're fine. So I can lower speech
currently and turn him up and get a good volume, but you have to go into
focus mode to start the video playing, and those sounds are louder than
everything else. Now I have a couple ways of fixing it, and I'll bet one
of them will work.
