Hi,

Use the f6 key to cycle between the document and the status bar. I do not know of a hotkey to read it but this may be a good feature request.

Re: No voice, Power Point Slide Show view on Laptop with HDMI connected, NVDA restart fixes problem

Pranav Lal
 

Hi Rick,

I am unable to duplicate your problem probably because I do not have HDMI on
my desktop. I have however used NVDA on laptops and connected them to HDMI
projectors without problems. My suggestion came from my experiences with USB
sound cards. Setting a specific sound card helped mitigate the problem that
NVDA would switch to a USB sound card when that card was inserted. HDMI was
doing something similar hence I thought the same solution would work.

It appears the solution failed, sorry about that.

I did try running a presentation in slide show mode and NVDA began to speak
without any effort.

Why retype material that's just been covered elsewhere a couple of days ago when you can just click through and read it?

Re: No voice, Power Point Slide Show view on Laptop with HDMI connected, NVDA restart fixes problem

Rick
 

Hello Pranav:

Before making this suggestion, were you able to replicate my exact problem
and determine that this fixed it.

I changed the NVDA setting to use the internal speaker and added slide
transition sounds to my Power Point slide show. NVDA now spoke on internal
speakers while window sounds played on HDMI. NVDA does the same exact thing
when the slide show is started (no voice on the slide show window, but
speaks everywhere else when alt tabbing away from the slide show window.
Power point slide transition sounds were played on the HDMI device (i.e.
TV). Sadly, restarting NVDA no longer fixed the problem and NVDA simply did
not speak on the slide show window.

Changing NVDA back to sound mapper and now restart of NVDA no longer
corrects when restarted. Now I have a computer that simply won't speak the
slide content when connected to HDMI, even after restarting NVDA.

I think this is a bug in NVDA.

Don't ya just love computers?!?

Rick

Rick,

Set your output device in NVDA specifically which should solve the problem.
I think the usual setting is microsoft sound mapper. Set the output device
to your internal sound card. That way, when your computer begins sending
audio over HDMI, NVDA will continue speaking through the internal sound
card.
