Re: speech rate changes to defaults


But if its set to save automatically on exit  then whatever is causing the settings to be changed is occurring whilst using nvda is running , so when the nvda is set to save on exit then it will save the change at that moment in time

That will accomplish nothing.  The default behavior of NVDA is to save settings on exit.  So, if the default is being used, any time the program was exited or Windows was shut down, closing the program, the changes would have been saved after they were made.  Manually saving them before closing the program accomplishes nothing but saving them manually, not automatically.  You are just saving them earlier.


If the program isn’t set to save automatically, you are manually saving the settings applying your suggestion, so they are being saved either way.

Make sure the option to save configuration on nvda exit is unchecked

Then again set your desired setting and save


So whatever happens nvda should start with your saved configuration now

It happened again this morning. My configuration was saved. It seems that only the rate reverts to 9 on the rate setting.


Any thoughts?

Try saving the configuration after you have set it to what you want it to be set at

On 2021.1, I will be working and the speech rate changes to the default rate of 9. I have been going to the desktop and then go to the speech preferences and set the rate to 24 or 25, which I like. It then works for a long time until it does this again.


Just a bug or any other thoughts? Using Microsoft core voices, because my Eloquence is not working yet.
