Re: Weird NVDA sound output problem

Gene
 

When NVDA is running, do the following:
Open the synthesizer dialog, NVDA key, control, s.
Tab, I  believe once to a combo box where you specify the sound cardd NVDA will send speech to.  Then press enter. 
If you are using the default NVDA setting that automatically saves settings when you close NVDA, you don’t have to do this extra step.  If not, save the setting with NVDA key control c.
 
Close and run NVDA again and see if sound comes through the soundcard you specified.

Subject: [nvda] Weird NVDA sound output problem
 

Over the weekend a problem developed with my RealTek sound card on my laptop wich meant I could not use the 3.5  audio headphone socket.

Basically it was giving out distorted incomprehensible  sound.

I have implemented 2 solutions for the time being which work with everything audio except NVDA.

The first solution was to plug in a Creative Soundblaster USB card/dongle.

I have made this my default sound card in windows system.

This sound blaster  card works with everything audio except NVDA.

So I have tested the following which all work fine

Narrator Zoom all media through   VLC, Jaws 2021  all system sounds and web media content.

However as soon as I load NVDA it starts to put out sound through my laptop speakers rather than the headphones I am wearing though other sounds still come through the headphones. Today I tried another solution and paired a pair of Bluetooth headphones.

These again worked fine with all the above programs, narrator, Jaws Zoom etc but as soon as I loaded NVDA it started to chatter out noisily through the laptop speakers instead.

I have looked all through NVDA settings but cannot find anything to change?

At the moment NVDA is unusable as my deafness means that I cannot really hear without headphones.

Press ctrl+NVDA+s and tab once. Set the output device to Microsoft Sound Mapper and try again.

locked Re: Tips on using windows10

 

Well technically the icons can be reenamed with f2.

So this pc / computer as it was on xp is still my computer.

Network is however network, and recycle bin is still recycle bin though I have thought about renaming it trash can to comemmerate the old mac lc1.


However, because you can name all the icons you can still have my computer if only in desktop name only.

And at least you don't have an enterprise windows.

For whatever reason all generic branding is being or has been removed so all windows names and things are being replaced with generics.

That doesn't mean you can't name them to whatever you want.

I'm just about to upgrade my laptop computer to windows10 from windows7, and I have no knowledge about this operating system windows10.
So, my questions are these: how is the layout of the operating system. Is it like that of windows7 or XP. what about the desktop, how is it laid out. Then the user section where you have the folders like documents pictures music control panel and all that: how are they laid out. Then, are there any new features in this operating system that are not found in windows7? then what about the start menu: how isit laid out. How does one launch a program.
I am asking all these because I am a layman, as far as windows10 is concerned.
Hope to get some help as always.
Kind regards.

Problem reading input fields with type number with NVDA 2021.1

Vaibhav Saraf
 

Hi Group,

After updating my NVDA I am not able to read a few of the numeric fields on my stock broker's dashboard.

There might have been some change on their base code as well but since other screen readers read them well and this problem happened only after the update thus I think this is a NVDA bug.

When I tab into the fields I cannot read the value already present there. It just reads out as blank. Inputting any number also announces blank.

In browse mode I can read the field's value using arrow keys/'e' key.

Field code for reference:
<input type="number" placeholder="" autocorrect="off" min="1" step="1" autofocus="autofocus" nativeerror="true" staticlabel="true" animate="true" label="Qty." rules="[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]" dynamicwidthsize="8">

Thanks,
Vaibhav

Ibrahim,

      This once I am going to answer something like this here, on the main group, since it's short.  That being said, this is not an NVDA question, it's a Chrome question.  What you do in bookmarks manager to achieve what you want to achieve is the same regardless of the screen reader involved.  Questions about how to use specific pieces of software belong in the Chat Subgroup with the exception about inquiring about whether a given piece of software is accessible with NVDA or not.

1. Open the Bookmarks Manager, CTRL + Shift + O
2. Gain focus on the tree view for your bookmarks.  Mine happens to have Bookmarks Bar as the very first item, but depending on what you've done, and when, yours may not.
3.  Hit CTRL + A to select all.  If you wish to, jump over to the bookmarks items and double check what's selected.
4.  Navigate to the Delete button, which only becomes visible/accessible after items are selected, along with a Cancel button, and activate it.

All your bookmarks should be deleted, provided all were actually selected.  If you happened to miss a folder or two, repeating the process is still much, much faster than one-by-one deleting is.
