Ding, ding, ding!!   It's also accessible and it's also powerful.  Unless you're a professional who's doing this stuff constantly, which I am not, Audacity gives you tools you can't get otherwise without cost, and the tradeoffs with speed and "beauty of UI" are more than worth it, at least to me.

There are lots of screen reader users, regardless of whether it's NVDA or another, that use Audacity because of its accesibility in every sense of the word.

Re: MixPad and WavePad - NCH Software

Yeah, Audacity ias a multi-track editor; I think Wavepad is supposed to be simpler and more comprable to something like Goldwave (except perhaps not even as feature-rich as that). If you want true project-style editing you need something like the other programmes you mentioned and have a bit of experience with..Reaper, Cubase, or, indeed, Audacity, though people I know who have more audio editing experience say it’s not the greatest thing to work with (slow and clunky, mostly).

But, of course, Audacity is free.

A question: After you have closed the program, can you press alt+tab, and hear
how many programs windows thinks you have open?
For example, close Thunderbird, and it doesn't return you to the desktop.

Then, hold down alt, and repeatedly press tab. It will say something like:
program name, row 1, column 1. Program name, row 1, column 2. And so on. How
many columns does it say you have?

If you get any more than one column, then you have something open you may not
know about. Perhaps you aren't hearing the desktop, because it's returning to
an inaccessible window, or a non-speaking Windows notification, or some such.

Re: MixPad and WavePad - NCH Software

Hi Jonathan. I use Wavepad every week to edit mp3 recordings and, although I don't do much that is advanced, I'm not sure that it will do what you're hoping it will. I don't think it lets you add tracks in the way that Audacity or Cubase will. I've used it to copy parts of an mp3 and save it as a separate track and then inserted it at a specific point in a different mp3 but I don't think you can put that section as a second track with the other mp3 as track 1. Something I used to do in Cubase was to record different instruments on their own tracks and then choose which tracks to have muted and which to leave unmuted, which is something I think you can do in audacity but not Wavepad.

Regarding accessibility with NVDA, I find Wavepad very accessible. I did have a small problem with an update once ... I use Wavepad mostly to amplify tracks, and one update made the amplification settings dialogue inaccessible, and they also changed the interface which I didn't like. I switched back to the version I'm using now, 7.12 and am very happy with it. I use the paid Masters Edition and I can also say that their tech support is very helpful if ever I've had a question.

Re: How do I create a installer version of NVDA from a portable version?

Luke
 

Thanks Brian, Rob and Chris for the suggestions. Chris,  I loaded the portable version of NVDA and went to the tools menu and there was a install NVDA option there that isn’t on the installer version of NVDA. That option seems to be the simplest and easiest, so I will be using that option. Thanks

You can also just go, nvda+n, t, i.
This is install NVDA. Which will allow the portable version to be installed.

Re: How do I create a installer version of NVDA from a portable version?

 

I'd just save the NVDA Appdata folder for your user account and copy it over what a fresh install of NVDA puts there.

C:\Users\{your identifier}\Appdata\Roaming\nvda

That's the folder that contains all of your customizations to NVDA whether it be settings, add-ons, etc.

I looked at it very briefly awhile ago out of curiosity. I still have it

refresh my memory. This may be a case where screen review, object
navigation, or both, are necessary to get good access to the program.

Aside from that, are there certain specific things you want to do with the

Re: Pressing arrow keys doesn't move the curser in Microsoft Office Excel

Quentin Christensen
 

if it's moving through the text in the current cell when you arrow rather than changing cells, then you are in cell edit mode.  Normally you can arrow to tab between cells.  If you press F2, you will go into edit mode so you can edit the contents of a cell (without simply overwriting it).

is that what you are encountering?

If so, and if you'd like to improve your skills with Excel, NV Access has training material for using Excel with NVDA: https://www.nvaccess.org/product/microsoft-excel-training-for-nvda-ebook/

Kind regards

Sometimes, when I open excel to edit a worksheet, I can't move between the rows and columns using arrow keys, and I have to press tab/shift+tab or enter/shift+enter to go to other cells, or press insert+space to switch to browse mode and then navigate between the cells.
When I press arrow keys in focus mode, it reads the current cell value and doesn't move the curser. I can't select cells by pressing shift+arrow keys.
I'm using Win10/NVDA 2019.2 and Microsoft Office 2019, but I had this problem with older versions of these applications in Win7 too.
It seems that this problem occurs without any changes in settings once in a while and disappears automatically!

Edited

You are using a way-out-of-support version of NVDA in 2019.2, so please update to either 2020.3, or even better 2020.4RC1, to see if the issue still occurs.

If it does, then see my post The Most Basic Troubleshooting Steps for Suspected NVDA Issues, and follow those, in order, to see if any one of the three causes the problem to cease.
