Brian, out of curiousity, what sort of issues would this cause. I
really despise the software enhancements that come with
soundcards, and think it is laptop manufacturerers trying to make
their cheap audio hardware sound good. It interfeers with
naturalness of audio, and alot of sighted users have a desire to
disable signal processing as well, for a purerer music listening
experience. If I find I cannot disable enhancements on my next
machine easily, I will pay for an external DAC that has no signal
processing for unenhanced audio, as audiophiles often do.
Additionally, the issue with documentation listing specific
effects is that there is no uniformness of effects in soundcard
drivers iether. Realtek for example has bathroom, running water,
consert effects etc.

But Brian, the problem remains that these enhancements
mess up audio output of NVDA, especially compression effects,
due to eloquence being a formant synthesizer, probably what
happens is it compresses some of the phonemes at the beginning
and end of utterances.
Then if one is using said synthesizers the synth makers should, as
part of their installation documentation, tell you specifically
what should be turned off. Or, better yet, have the capability of
probing whether a given something is on and turning it off (or
vice versa) that is applicable to its functioning.
What you propose is a solution that would create many, many other
potential problems, rather than focusing the solution on the
specific situation. That never makes sense. It's asking for the
law of unintended consequences to come roaring in.
And if you're going to argue with me about this, don't. Having
been a programmer for many, many years I know about this sort of
situation all too well and I won't be changing my mind. I've
always said "tool to task" and that applies as far as "specific
solution to specific problem" rather than casting an overly broad
net that is very likely to catch all kinds of proverbial fish that
you'd rather avoid.
