Re: Fast switching between two voices

Curtis Delzer

this is some terrific add-on! rather than go through the  hassle of switching synthesizers for either fun or practicality, this add-on after adjusting is really elegant.

I have installed the addon SwitchSynth. after installing this addon, i
tried using the shortcuts NVDA+shift+ctrl+1 while on one synthesiser
and switched to other synthesiser to which i would like to consider as
secondary synthesizer and pressed NVDA+shift+ctrl+2. but it only keeps
announcing 1 and 2. i tried saving this setting with
NVDA+shift+ctrl+v. but nothing seems to work. so any solution?

The version, dual_voice-5.0.nvda-addon given in the below link is not
compatible with this version of NVDA.
Any link for an updated version would be helpful.

please give me som advice and point me in the right direction?
