Re: NVDA volume not adjustable in windows volume control

Without having the technical knowledge to  do more than speculate, this may be a minor corruption in the registry.  As a practical matter, does this matter?  NVDA has its own volume setting found by opening the dialog for the synthesizer you are using, JAWS key, control v, and tabbing through the fields.  A volume control will be found for the synthesizer you are using.  It will say volume and that’s it but it is actually adjusting that specific synthesizer as used by NVDA and appears completely independent of the volume control adjustment.
in NVDA.  Do you have such a setting and what does it do?  Will it meet your needs?

Hello David. I am using the Windows OneCore voices.

I’ve even tried the eSpeak just to see if there is a difference. Same thing happens.

Hey all.

Right now in the volume control if I have NVDA set to sound mapper or headphones I am unable to adjust the volume in the volume control. When I do the volume for NVDA jumps back to 27%. This is 3% less than my normal audio in case that helps.

If I switch NVDA output to speakers I can then adjust the volume control.

I have disabled any volume add-ons and made sure that audio ducking is off.

I can adjust the volume in NVDA speech controls with no problem.

I am running NVDA 2021.1

Windows 10 21H1 (64-bit) build 19043.1110
