Re: Add-On Updater: Is there a way to force it to check for updates?

Jesse Farquharson
 

Brian,
If you open the NVDA menu and navigate to the tools menu, check for addon updates should be at or near the bottom of the list.
Hope this helps.

Re: Is there a way to change the volume of NVDA's sounds?

Chris Mullins
 

 

                Hi

You could try switching off the focus change sounds in NVDA settings, NVDA will then announce focus changes verbally.  Alternatively, you could turn down System sounds in the Volume Mixer app.

 

Cheers

Hi all.

 

 

Pretty straightforward question, can it be done? I'm listening to some

fairly faint videos so I have to crank my volume up. I lower the volume

of my synth with the ring, but NVDA's sounds, e.g. going in and out of

focus mode, are still pretty loud in comparison to everything else. I

suppose I could just turn that sound off if it comes down to it, but I

figured I'd find out if I'm missing something obvious first.

John are these vids Youtube videos? If so check your volume is up on the page the vids are on.

Hi, John,

 

Go to the voice menu with NVDA insert V. You’ll be in the voices menu. Tab until you hear volume. If it’s at 100 percent, use the left arrow to lower it.

 

Hope this helps.

Re: Forcing NVDA Find versus Browser Find

I'm not 100 percent positive, but I think i have seen this once or twice in browse mode. I usually toggle between the two modes then it works for a few weeks and I normally forget about it until it happens when I don't want it to, like when I edit a stream title, look for my briefing, search for something on froogle, etc. I think I've seen this on discord actually but like I said, it happens so rarely, I can't really begin to recognize a pattern.

locked Commenting without reading threads #adminnotice

Nimer Jaber
 

Hello everyone,

I am requesting that everyone take a look at https://nvda.groups.io/g/nvda/topic/questions/73161884?p=,,,20,0,0,0::recentpostdate%2Fsticky,,,20,2,0,73161884 as an example of what happens when users do not read threads entirely before responding. There are many further examples like it. In particular, please pay attention to messages sent by Gene. 

Please, I am urging every user to read messages in their entirety before responding. Using threaded view is a great tool for helping out with this. Using the web version is also great for this. If you choose not to use threaded view or the web version, please make certain you have read to each message in the thread before responding.

Why is this important? There are many users on this list, and there is simply no reason to get multiple responses to a thread saying essentially the same thing just because a user won't bother reading through a thread before responding. Receiving many emails has an impact on individuals from regions of the world where bandwidth matters. It also makes going through emails more time-consuming, and makes threads longer in the archives when users must go through threads saying the exact same thing.

Finally, if you don't know the answer to a question, please, please refrain from answering to say that you don't know, google it, etc etc. These kinds of messages are another example of extraneous messages that don't need to make it to the list. It's fine if you don't know, but there is no reason to respond if you don't.

This thread will immediately be locked, If you have comments on this message, or any other topic, please send your thoughts to nvda+owner@nvda.groups.io and we can discuss further.

Only if others want to discuss it.

However, in at least partial answers to your question based on my single experience:  Not new (has been happening for a long time now).  Can't speak as to whether it's limited to Win10 or not.  If Win7 is still being supported by NVAccess then that matters, and if it's not it doesn't.  And I'd hope that active support for any OS would not go on for any longer than 1 year after any OS goes out of support by its maker.  Passive "it still works" is an entirely different matter.

Unable to get sound of typed alphabets

pranaw kumar
 

Dear All,
We have made Indian language TTS voice SAPI compatible and accessed the same in NVDA. It is working properly but we are facing one issue. When we type either English alphabet  or Indian Language Alphabet through keyboard, it is not getting passed to NVDA and so we are unable to listen the sound. However, when word is typed it is working fine. If alphabets/single characters are present on document it speaks.

Kind Regards  /सादर

Re: Forcing NVDA Find versus Browser Find

Hi Brian

I get this regularly, for some reason it triggers the site’s “Find in page” functionality.  When this happens, I usually press enter on the site’s “Close find”  feature, make sure NVDA is in browse mode then do NVDA+Ctrl+f again.  Occasionally, you can’t get into browse mode, in which case I reload and try again.  If it doesn’t work next time I grouch profusely and swear never to use the site again.

 

Cheers

Chris

Subject: [nvda] Forcing NVDA Find versus Browser Find

 

I'm now frustrated enough to ask this question.

It had always been my belief that hitting NVDA+CTRL+F would force the NVDA Find dialog to come up and be used to search a webpage.  I often want to be able to do this when searching for controls that don't necessarily show up with a straight browser find.

In trying to work on Maria's issue, I tried several times to get the NVDA find to come up to find the Language Selector button, but it wouldn't.  I'd hit NVDA+CTRL+F and still get the Brave browser find.  This has happened plenty in Chrome and Edge Dev, too, so I know it's not "just a Brave thing."

What am I missing?  There are times I absolutely want to force an NVDA Find, and it seems that sometimes I cannot do that.
