True, but only if it is required.  Otherwise it always makes sense to keep your instances, whether actual or virtual, up to date with the latest supported version that will run on your hardware.

Sorry, Lukasz. We were literally typing our responses at the same time, and you beat me by 2 minutes in posting yours.

I'm not Lukasz, but this, in context, means Cumulative Update.

If you have no screen reader output then it's quite difficult to get version and build information since you can't see it.  Normally you'd just run the winver command and listen to the information in the resulting dialog box.

If, by some chance, you somehow have Windows 10 Version 1809 running, you need to get a far more recent version and re-create your VM using it.  I'd go no earlier than Version 20H2 and, ideally, just use the current version, 21H1.

I don't know. Is there a way to figure that out without sighted

until a colleague of mine can help me on that.
Possible probably yes but not easy. If you have easy access to the
sighted assistant that would be your best bed

First versions of this
build had exactly the issue you're describing under Virtual Box. I've
reported this both to Oracle (https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/17942)
and to Microsoft Accessibility team.
It's nice that you did the reports! Thanks! I feel dumb for not having
found them, actually!
I don't think they would come up in the searches - certainly the one to
Microsoft has been done via twitter and using private messages.

The latter report resulted in this
issue being corrected with an update but unfortunately if you've
installed from the image without the appropriate CU
What do you mean by CU, exactly? I'm not familiar with the terminology,
sorry.
CU -> Cumulative update

integrated you need
to fix it manually. To do so it is necessary to open your sound settings
and ensure your sound card is set to Stereo rather than to 5.1 which the
audio card emulated by Virtual Box fails to handle well.
Just to make sure. When you talk about the sound settings, do you mean
on the Windows side?
Yes, this change needs to be done on the system inside your VM.

For a work around to use this add on I thought there would be a few people that speak english that would like to try it but it comes up in dutch when installed.

*Object enhancer add on for NVDA

Object Enhancer
• Author: Babbage B.V. info@...
Object Enhancer allows you to change how NVDA announces objects on the screen using an intuitive interface. It can be used to change the label of an object, but depending on how you’re using it, has functionality to change basically any property of an object.
Changes to an object are saved in a definition. A definition contains:
• Criteria that have to apply in order for the definition to match
• Attribute changes that will be applied to every object that matches the definition
• Optional relationships with other definitions. A definition can inherrit criteria from other

You can obtain a copy of it for NVDA 2021.1 from my drop box account at https://www.dropbox.com/s/wld98w3bv5s2l9i/object%20enhancer.zip?dl=1

The add on is in Dutch and if you do the following on the installed version of NVDA you can have it in English. Press the Windows key, then arrow to all apps, then NVDA, then NVDA user configuration, then press the Enter key. Locate the addons folder, then locate the object enhancer folder, then press the Enter key.
Locate the Doc folder, there will be 2 folders inside of it. Locate the Nl folder then copy the readme.html file. Go back one step and locate the En folder and paste it in there. It should override the other readme file. Now when you bring up the help section in the addon, the first part will be in Dutch and the rest will be English.

For a portable version do the following. If it is in the NVDA folder, locate the user configuration folder, then press the Enter key. Locate the add ons folder then press the Enter key. Locate the object enhancer folder, then press the Enter key. Locate the Doc folder, then press the Enter key. There will be 2 folders inside of it. Locate the Nl folder, then press the Enter key and copy the readme.html file. Go back one step and locate the En folder and press the Enter key and paste it in there. It should override the other readme file. Now when you bring up the help section in the add on, the first part will be in Dutch and the rest will be English.
 
*Please note

If after that has been done and you hear NVDA speaking in another language, use the NVDA key + Ctrl key + the letter V. Next, tab down until you hear NVDA say Automatic language switching (when supported) and uncheck that box. Save your settings, then open the add on help section. The first part will be in Dutch and the rest will be in English.
If you do not want to do the above, there is an English text file which you can read within the zip file.

Coming to the problem. The VM works. We can hear Windows' system sounds

What does not work is that NVDA does not speak and that even the sounds
one is supposed to hear when it starts up or when it stops can't be
heard.

The speech synthetizers (Windows OneCore voices for french) are
installed but it is not possible to listen to a sample.

Almost the same goes for the narrator, the difference bbeing that it's
possible ot hear it beep but not speak.

Re: No sound with NVDA 2020.1 in a Windows 10 VM

Sébastien Hinderer
 

Thanks, Chris!

We did try espeach and didn't encounter more success. Regarding the
output device, as far as I can remember, we had two choices: speakers or
microsoft sound mappper or something like that. I can't say for sure
that we tried all the combinations of synthesizers and outputs but those
we tried didn't work. Also there is this strange things that the tunes
NVDA makes when it starts and stops we couldn't hear either. To me this
seems to indicate that the problem is wider than just a matter of which
speech synthetizer is used, but I also suspect there may be several
problems, and perhaps installing the latest version of NVDA will solve
at least some of them.

Anyway, many thanks to all for your warm support, I deeply appreciate!

Sébastien.

Dear Brian,

No, I was not aware of the french speaking group, thanks!

That may indeed be helpful in some situations and in any case worth
following!

For this discussion, though, it feels like the present group is a better
place to have it, well I hope it doesn't annoy anybody.

Best wishes,

Sébastien.

Thanks Brian and sorry, my copy/paste included a name who should not
have been there. The e-mail address included was also irrelevent, my
apologize for that. The only right thing was the page's URL.

Thanks again, things seem to become a bit less cloudy, I think.

Thanks! I'll definitely give it a try as soon as an opportunity arises.
I don't see why I owuldn't. Sinc e things do not work anyway, there
seems to be not much to loose. Does it matter whether I upgrade or first
uninstall the old version and theninstall the new one?

Thanks,

If narrator isn’t working either then maybe selecting the espeak synth that comes with NVDA may help and/or changing the output to another  device

Dear all,

 

I am a Linux usser wishing to use w Windows VM running under VirtualBox

and with NVDA running into it as a screen reader.

 

Since I am based in France I downloaded NVDA2020.1 which seemed to be

the latest release, at least on the french website. Later on I

discovered on the nvaccess.org website that 2021.1 seems to be released

so if you think switching to this version could help to solve my problem

I would like no, but then I'd ask why this is not yet on the french

website, is it because of a lack of translations? In which case I'm

happy to help.

 

Coming to the problem. The VM works. We can hear Windows' system sounds

and it is also possible to play videos on YouTube through FireFix from

within the VM and that will produce sound.

 

What does not work is that NVDA does not speak and that even the sounds

one is supposed to hear when it starts up or when it stops can't be

heard.

 

The speech synthetizers (Windows OneCore voices for french) are

installed but it is not possible to listen to a sample.

 

Almost the same goes for the narrator, the difference bbeing that it's

possible ot hear it beep but not speak.

 

The Windows in question has been activated.

 

I am a visually impaired engineer surrounded by sighted and skilled

engineers so we will be happpy to provide any information that could

help you in assisting me.

 

Any hint warmly welcome! Thanks!

 

Sébastien.

 

 

 

 

 


Re: No sound with NVDA 2020.1 in a Windows 10 VM

 

Sébastien,

You probably already know this, but there is a group dedicated to francophone users of NVDA.  Here's the group description from their Groups.io main page as well as the primary group addresses:

Liste par et pour les utilisateurs francophones de NVDA.

Yep.  Discipline.  Accountability.  Joy.  Fun.  Responsibility.

That's what life is about.  And in that order.
