Is it one specific program, or does it happen if moving through say Notepad as well as the web as well as file explorer?

I don't have a solution offhand, but would you be able to send me a log at debug level?

First of all, your NVDA key is either INSERT or CAPS LOCK, depending on how you have NVDA setup.  So, to set your log level:
1) Press NVDA+control+g to open the general settings
2) Press TAB until the focus is on 'Log level'
3) Press DOWN ARROW to get to 'Debug'
4) Press ENTER to close settings
5) Press NVDA+control+c to save settings.

To restart NVDA with add-ons disabled:
1) Press NVDA+Q
2) Down arrow to 'Restart with add-ons disabled'
3) Press ENTER

Next, recreate the issue - do whatever causes problems.

To get NVDA's log after that, there are several ways:

If NVDA is still running and usable:
1) Press NVDA+F1 to open the log viewer
2) Press CONTROL+A to select all.
3) Press CONTROL+C to copy.
4) Open your email and start a message to info@..., type a little about what you have done and what has happened in the body of the message, then leave a space and:
5) Press CONTROL+V to paste the copied log.

Instead of using the log viewer, or if NVDA has stopped and you needed to restart it or the computer:
1) Press WINDOWS+R to open Windows' Run dialog
2) Type %temp% and press ENTER (that's the percent sign, the letter t e m p and another percent sign).  Windows Explorer should open to the temporary folder.
3) Press TAB to move to the file list
4) Press N and move down to find up to three files:  nvda.log (the log file for the current or most recent NVDA session), nvda-old.log (the log from the previous session) and nvda-crash.dmp (a crash dump with more information created if NVDA itself crashes).
5) Depending on what email program you use, the steps will be different, but attach as many of those three files to an email to info@... as will be useful, and again in the body of the message describe a bit about what has happened.

Hello!


Firstly, we do not have enough information...


1 - What synth? Or happens with any synth?

2 - It only happens with NVDA or also with Narrator?

3 - What machine and what sound card?

4 - Are Bluetooth speakers/headphones in use?

5 - If not, they have tried to configure, change or remove the audio drive?

6 - In the NVDA log did you notice any problem?

Re: Audio ducking not supported?

It doesn't seem to be something which only works on insider builds / 21H2.  I too am running 21H1 (Windows 10 (64-bit) Version: 2009, Build: 19043), and audio ducking is working for me also.  Maybe something with the particular audio driver on some machines?

So I am unsure if its worth fixing especially since just about everyone

Its certainly not worth rereleasing the entire nvda package though in my
opinion especialoly since its happening in a system soon to be updated.

Its already mid october, its barely a few weeks.

Cannot write much of anything on Facebook without bringing up the feature to tag individuals

 

Subject says it all. This transcends NVDA versions and versions of Firefox. I am happily writing a comment. Then, I write a word, and it wants me to tag someone. I cannot seemingly get to where I can write normally.


This has been happening for quite some time. This occurs with Narrator as well. Any help with this one is appreciated. This of course, happens when in focus mode.

Millions of people use MS-Office with Screen Readers, NVDA being among them.  While there is the odd problem here and there, they simply work together.

He is ill-informed.  Period, end of sentence.  And it would not be the first time that someone in technical support was neither technical nor supportive.  And when it comes to assistive technology, unless you're talking with someone who either uses it or specializes in assisting with it, then their advice has to be taken with a boulder of salt, not a grain, when they make assertions that are easily disproven.

If you're someone using assistive technology of any kind I'd suggest you get in touch with Microsoft Windows & Office Accessibility Support (US).  Pick your contact method from any one of the options on that page.  If your preference happens to be by phone, and you're in the USA, then (800) 936-5900.  If you are in the UK, see: UK Microsoft & Windows Accessibility Support Webpage

Not Really. Windows 10 starts the default name of the computer,
regardless if it is a desktop or laptop, with the 'desktop' suffix for a
long time now so the only conclusion which can be drawn from this name
is that it has not been changed from the default.

You could do a Reset as well, but it is not as "clean" as either a Repair Install with the ISO nor a completely clean reinstall.

When I am trying to start with an utterly clean slate, which I am here, I suggest a repair install first, as it does a more extensive housecleaning as far as Windows goes than a Reset does, then a completely clean reinstall.

But one can try a Reset if one prefers.  In any case, getting to a "known clean" or "much cleaner" Windows install is the first order of business here.

I was surprised that he indicated that it was a incompatibility with NVDA because of the US ADA/WCAG law that requires digital accessibility… It would appear that it is Microsoft’s responsibility to do accessibility audits to make sure their upgrades work with screen readers…?

And, I'm sad to say, this is an engineer who does not know what he or she is talking about.  Screen readers and Office have been working together, very well, for many years now.  I haven't had a graphics hardware connected crash from a screen reader for longer than I can remember.

I really don't know exactly "where you are" as far as having stuff on your computer that you cannot or do not wish to lose.  But I'd be very strongly tempted to do a completely clean reinstall of Windows and then install the screen reader(s) and Office.

If you have issues after that, then contact the MS Disability Help Desk.

I strongly suspect that things are messed up in a very profound way from all the noodling around it sounds like has been done.

That's a change (even if it's a long ago change).  In my day-to-day travels, setting up a completely new machine for a client only happens once every few years, so I tend t, forget what I see as default system names.  It also doesn't help, I suppose, that I always change them to something meaningful so that when they show up on a list of network connected devices, even on a different device, it's pretty obvious which device is which.

And you'd think that MS would do some "hardware type detection" when setting these default names, but . . .

I would really suggest, at this point, that you start from scratch, and by that, I mean really from scratch, starting with a completely clean reinstall of Windows 10 (which has the added advantage of getting rid of Dell bloatware).  If you don't want to go quite that far then, at the very least do a Repair Install using a freshly downloaded copy of the ISO file.  Nuke McAfee before doing either one.  Windows Defender is top-tier software and far less likely to cause interaction issues.

Doing a Completely Clean (Re)install of Windows 10 Using Media Creation Tool to Fetch the Win10 ISO File

Doing a Completely Clean (Re)install of Windows 10 Using Media Creation Tool to Create Bootable Win10 Install Media on a USB Thumb Drive

Doing a Windows 10 Repair Install or Feature Update Using the Windows 10 ISO file


All three of the above download as docx files.  If you wish to try the Repair Install, then you would have the ISO file already if you reached the stage where you wanted to do a completely clean reinstall, so you could jump to the step after having downloaded it.

If you were to wish to do a completely clean reinstall of Windows immediately, then I'd create the bootable media directly to the USB drive using the Media Creation Tool.
