Well although I get the start menu OK on windows 7 I am increasingly getting it on folder opening, which it never did prior to the latest version of nvda but I do have a number of newer add ons since add on updater was installed and without any kind of evidence yet, I might suggest its one or more of the new add ons.

Hi.

I’ve been experiencing this issue ever since my machines received build 17763.

Very odd.

I believe I have the same issue. In fact I think I saw it yesterday. I have the essentials add o installed if that makes a difference, which it probably does not. I hope it is a fluke for both of us.

Running windows 10 1809. I have to look up the nvda version but it is the latest beta build, that much I know.

Hey guys, Molly here again.

For some reason 99 percent of the time Nvda doesn’t announce that I’m on the start menu when I press the windows logo key. I press it and Nvda says nothing at all. It’s happening on both machines. It’s frustrating because I’m needing to access different folders and I want to search for them using the start menu.

Do you have any ideas on what could be causing this?

Running windows 10 home, build 17763 on both machines.

Thanks.

Yes increasingly nvda is not actually confirming what has been opened as if it missed the command to say it. I wonder, does the person have the 3D sounds add on installed or something that interrupts the speaking in some way?
The NVDA speech can be muted by hitting certain keys, but also overwritten by some other speech or affected by a mute of a sound card due to driver issues.

You should easily be able to confirm where you are. I don't use Windows 10 but one or both of these commands should tell you directly or indirectly where you are:
Try NVDA key t for the title bar. Also try NVDA key tab, which reads the current control you are on.

Hello. Does anyone know of any audio recording software that works with
NVDA with no mic attached to the computer? I want to record a lot of
internal stuff from my computer with no mic attached. I have tried
audacity with everything they suggested when reading the user guide to
make it work no such luck since am using windows 10. Lets just say if I
want to record a radio station or anything from my computer what type of
program could I use with NVDA? I have heard of total recorder and gold
wave would those programs work since I do have everything up to date and I

did check in the recording section and I have no stereo mics on my sound
card. Have any of you used sound tap or any apps with in the app store to

get anything to work with NVDA? I have tried everything with the line in
jack nothing. Or maybe I am not setting it up right. Any suggestions would

be excellent. Thank you.

Goldwave isn't free and there is no reason to use it for simple recording and editing.  I'll look at the program I'm going to send tomorrow and make sure what the options are.  The options may be all you need.  Or, you may need to learn to change sound card settings to record using a line-in input.  But just what do you want to record?  Do you want to record from a physical radio or record a radio stream that is streaming online?  What sorts of other things do you want to record?

I'll send a link for a recorder that you can record as you wish.  But the program doesn't allow you to edit.  the program is very simple.  If you want to edit in the MP3 format, MP3 Direct Cut would be the program I would recommend.  If you want to record in another format, then editing in audacity would be what you might want to do.  There is a technical reason why editing an MP3 file is better done with MP3 Direct Cut and MP3 Direct Cut is the simplest MP3 editing program I know of.
 
I'll send the program tomorrow with a description of how to use it.
