Yep, it's a combination of that mechanical typing sound, and a
I like it.

Actually it is a typing sound. In the 1800s the
telegraph used that sound, or at least somethingn close to
it. So I know what that means.

sense. But it is something like a high pitched
camera sound you might heare on a phone. It doesn’t
have any association with a mode and I find the
sound to be grating and annoying.
Also, for those learning NVDA, I don’t think
sound should be used. Repetition is important in
learning and hearing actual words would help those
learning both become more aware of the terms and
perhaps be more aware of when they are in which

sound means focused mode, the bop noise means
browse mode, it makes sense actually.
NVDA space toggles browse
mode off and on. But if you are using
sound for the notification, I don’t know
which sound means what and I don’t like
using sounds instead of speech in such
ways. I have NVDA set to say browse
mode when it is on and focus mode when
it is off. If you want to change from
sound to speech, I’ll explain how to do
Also, by default, NVDA
automatically changes from Browse Mode
to focus mode and back again depending
on what structures you move to in a web
page and how you move.
I am very much against this
being default behavior. I think it is
confusing to new students of NVDA and
causes them to concentrate on learning
when the automatic changes occur when
what they should be concentrating on is
when to use which mode. Manually
changing from mode to mode, in my
opinion, helps create understanding and
helps concentration be on what it should
be on, not a secondary consideration.
You can change this
behavior as well, if you want.

[nvda] NVDA's normal navigation
referring to the internet and brouser
mode. Sorry if I wasn’t very clear with
what I was asking.
It isn’t clear what
you are asking about. Are you
asking about navigating using what
in JAWS would be called the PC
cursor? You may be asking about
the Internet and browse mode but
that should be clarified.
