What is the importance of the thumb drive?  You can either load the files into whatever word processor you are using directly from the thumb drive or you can copy and paste them to wherever you want to load them from on the c drive.  But I see no connection between your conversion question and the files being on a thumb drive.

Hello NVDA,

This is mostly an update and reaction to the thread per this post, but
know I send heart-felt thanks to each of you.

Ruis, you're correct about WordPad being an option. However, the files
in question are on a USB or as it is commonly called, a thumb drive.
You were the only one to bring up this option.

Gene, Brian, Luke and Jackie
I agree that working with something in the gloaming stage makes little
sense in the long-run. However, the solution to download the
compatibility pack may be a quick fix and stave off the inevitable for
temporary. I am not the most tech savvy guy on the block..
Yes, Libre Office sounds good, I skimmed its website, but am a bit
daunted by some of the tech terms and formats stated. Too bad the
WordPerfect days were short-lived due to a monopoly that gives two
poops about its users.

My effort to go to www.account.com.live.reset
in order to initiate recovery of my Microsoft Account was tedious,
frustrating, and a joke. I spent over an hour playing their audio
capscha game where one has a series of statements to interpret.
Creating an email account wasn't much better either.

One of you has contacted me off list, and I am very grateful for this
person's time and interest. I am not ruling out LO, and am impressed
it welcomes solutions suggested for found problems, and has something
like a user listserv, too. I will act on this, but not hastily;
thanks!

I am a short story writer, so would be going into my files to do some
fine tuning. I submit my efforts to online venues, sometimes via
submittable.com or other, where uploading an attachment is required.
Some are picky as to format: rtf, doc, docx or pdf. For now, Jarte
with the compatibility pack would be the quickest solution in terms of
time and such. Or, if I can recover my MS account info by miracle, the
product key could be used to install the 2016 version as purchased
with the computer.

Thanks to each of you for responding to my post concerning changing

a newer version of MS Word appear to be my two choices.
To save time, I cannot install MS Word on my new computer via a

Jarte seems to say I need the converter pack from 2007, it's now 2021.
I suppose learning Google Docs is another option, too and free of

I found the article about renaming bulk files on Computer Hope.com,

Given the amount of water that flows under the bridge here, I'll excuse myself for not recalling these topics.

As an aside, there are a number of things in GitHub that I've seldom, if ever, encountered end-user complaints about on the group.  And a great many of those are about "esoteric features" that are seldom used in various application programs, so it's unsurprising that those don't show up on a frequent basis.  And to be clear, I am not trying to say an issue with say all involves esoterica.  I think I've already been clear about that.

I consider GitHub and the group two very different worlds, and GitHub has a "much longer memory" due it its nature than an end user group does.  There are lots of open issues that were created years (plural) ago.  That's not all that unusual, either, as certain issues are very low priority.

Because the sound output from the sound card is not loud enough for me to hear. So even if everything is at 100% volume from the sound card I still cannot hear properly, especially on my laptop machine which is very quiet.

The Mp3 amplifier takes the sound from the soundcard and   increases the volume played into your headphones. So you will get a much louder sound.

This is probably why my daughter bought me sound cancelling headphones for Christmas – it helps her and her Mum have slightly less disturbance as Eloquence is chattering away in the living room.

 

I have to do something similar at the other end of the process with audio books. To avoid having to use the portable amplifier here  I use Mp3Gain to increase the db of the mp3 files for comfortable audio book listening before transferring them onto my portable devices. Typically an RNIB Daisy Book will have its files set at 86 or 89db – I always increase these to 100db.

This meant that I, and my sister when  she was alive could hear books that we would otherwise struggle with.

I do have severe hearing loss so this may not be good for everybody  but what  I routinely do on computers where I cannot  hear my screenreader properly is attach an mp3 amplifier between my earphones and the sound card. This is typically charged by a USB cable connected to your computer or a charger   for power supply plus a 3.5 to 3.5 plug cable to take the output from your sound card to the amplifier. Over the years I have spent quite a lot of money with some expensive devices but have found that actually some of the cheaper models  are far more reliable and long lasting and, to my ears at least provide just as good sound quality.

The one I am using at the moment bought in January 2018 is about 2 inches square and simply stuck to my computer case so it is easy for me to plug in my headphones through it.

Checking on Amazon it appears it is no longer available but the recommended alternative product suggested by Amazon is

FiiO A1 Silver Portable Headphone Amp A1

£24.99

It is the same manufacturer of the device I am currently using though of course I have no experience of this particular device.

Are you aware of the system volume mixer (sndvol.exe), in which you can:

 

1. Turn NVDA way way up.

2. Turn your other application further down.

3. Turn your system volume up so that your simulator is at proper level.

 

At that point, the voice should be easy to hear.

You mean you're picking up your audio through a microphone, not running it through a board/console and mixing the audio directly into the stream? No wonder you're having issues if so.

Because my next suggestion was going to be to bring NVDA through on another channel of your board (again, with a second sound card, like the $30 Behringer UCA202), up-gain that channel significantly, and then mix it back into your headphone feed.

1. Turn NVDA way way up.

2. Turn your other application further down.

3. Turn your system volume up so that your simulator is at proper level.

 

At that point, the voice should be easy to hear.

I've tired those, and they don't work. Everyone and everything sounds like a mumble to me when I use those.. And they don't go up very loud even at 100 percent. The person needs to shout at me through the bone conduction headset.

longer hear well.

Have you considered sending NVDA out of a second sound card, and using a bone-conduction headset such as the Aftershox M2 or one of their other wired sets?

That may give you the "third ear" that so many of us often need when doing this kind of multi source audio stuff.
