Years ago there was a typing sound whenever you heard news

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.

If it were a typing sound, it might make more
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

The typing sound means focused mode, the bop
noise means browse mode, it makes sense
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 it.
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.

normal navigation mode
I am referring to the
internet and brouser mode. Sorry if I
wasn’t very clear with what I was
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.
