Sighted person would have to look very hard, if the progress bar flashes up very quickly, and they could easily miss it.

 

I’ve also heard it when the computer is idle.

 

All the best

Thanks, I still don't understand why windows 11 would announce something that's not there, even had a sighted person check and nothing was displayed on screen, even did a clean install of NVDA and would still get odd behavior until I disabled saidoption.

Good stuff.

 

Basically, having that option checked, tells NVDA to tell you about any progress bar, whether it’s part of the app in focus or not.

Hi Jean,

 

This is the Background Progress Bars option.  Clip from the user guide:-

 

Progress bar output

Key: NVDA+u

This option controls how NVDA reports progress bar updates to you.

It has the following options:

• Off: Progress bars will not be reported as they change.

• Speak: This option tells NVDA to speak the progress bar in percentages. Each time the progress bar changes, NVDA will speak the new value.

• Beep: This tells NVDA to beep each time the progress bar changes. The higher the beep, the closer the progress bar is to completion.

• Beep and speak: This option tells NVDA to both beep and speak when a progress bar updates.

Report background progress bars

This is an option that, when checked, tells NVDA to keep reporting a progress bar, even if it is not physically in the foreground. If you minimize or switch away from a window that contains a progress bar, NVDA will keep track of it, allowing you to do other things while NVDA tracks the progress bar.

 

** End Of Extract **

 

So just uncheck report background progress bars, and I believe that problem will go away.

 

All the best


Steve

I don't think this is an NVDA problem.  I think something is going on in Windows or a Windows program that is causing a progress bar to be displayed and NVDA is reading it.  If you alt tab around, do you see any window that gives any idea of what it might be?  Also, did this behavior start after any event, such as after updates were installed or after you installed a program?

Hello,

Using latest build of NVDA along with Windows 11, I'm noticing that all of a sudden on its own, it reads progress bars. I am wondering if there's a way to turn this off, or what can be causing such behavior? The only way I get rid of this is if I turn off progress bar announcements, any help would be grately appreciated. Thanks.
