That's actually where I do this in windows 10. I'm thinking it's the same place. Good luck.

Hi all,


Here's the scenario. I want to change the playback device for certain apps. I can accomplish this with the windows sound mixer, but, the problem I have is the list keeps updating as it is a dynamic list based on loudest to softest in terms of which app is putting out how much sound etc.

How can I prevent this long enough to be able to change the output of certain apps to go to the devices I'd like them to? for instance, iTunes and Spotify, neither of which have that functionality in their own application, hense the need to utilise the windows sound mixer.

winamp and various others do not have this restriction.














Re: windows 10 app esentials add-on

You can read about it and download it here:
https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/wintenApps.en.html

You can get Outlook 2013 to work with it if you use an application specific password from Google. 

Whatever you do, you may want to check to see if messages are being deleted from the server when you delete them using Windows Mail.  I am not saying my experience is typical or represents others' experiences, but using GMail, when I delete a message using Windows Mail, it remains on the server, I believe in the inbox.

Hi all,

I have a seika mini note taker which I have connected to my desktop computer

I have set the seika mini to usb connection and NVDA's automatic detection

However, I do not see anything on the display accept waiting for connection.


What am I missing?

For Windows 11 specifically, you can find the full what's new here:

 

But just from the blurb, there are a few things for Windows 11.  Firstly using UIA in newer versions Word by default, which should make it much more responsive.  There are also various Windows 11 bug fixes, for apps such as Calculator, Console, Terminal, Mail and Emoji Panel.

 

I believe the Code Factory update should be out soon, and hopefully the other add-ons which haven't yet been updated will be out soon too!

Well Just to let you all know I am using klat 6 and I love that voice.  I gave up on code factory because my trile would expire every the server went down and the voices would sound very crackly.  If you are looking for a good voice I would go with klatt 6.

Well, I’ve seen the update to NVDA 2022.1, but, I’m going to hold off on updating for what I hope are just a few days while I wait for an updated add-in for the Vocalizer and Eloquence voice package from CodeFactory.

 

I haven’t seen anything that I’d call earth-shattering about this 2022.1 update, but, I am on Windows 11, so maybe there are good things under the hood.

 

Any thoughts?

Hi:

 

I figure they were working on it.

 

I have to admit I have not been reading everything that came across the list, so there may have been posted some kind of warning about this issue.

 

Regardless, this is not a showstopper for me.

 

I am sure NVDA developers had a good reason for the changes that were made, and NVDA’s advantages outweigh any temporary loss of convenience.  Choice is a good thing, and NVDA gives us one more choice.

 

Actually, the thing I like the best about NVDA is that the screen review method is a little similar to the old DOS screen reader ASAP, and that was my number one go-to in my DOS days.  I still have my copy of ASAP and pull it out whenever I access a DOS program.

 

I’ll keep checking CodeFactory’s Web site.

Two things:

1.  Regional variants of a given language are enclosed in parentheses for search purposes, e.g., English (United Kingdom)
2.  If you already have the language pack for a given region installed, that option will be stippled out and inaccessible in the list even if it exists, as you can't install what's already installed.

George has been a part of the English (United Kingdom) language pack for quite a while.  I can find him if I go to the NVDA Settings, Voices, as I use OneCore as my synth of choice, but with Microsoft David.

My only suggestion would be that if you already have the UK English voices installed, and are not finding George, is to uninstall (remove, in the terminology used in the Windows Settings dialog) the existing UK language pack and then add it back again.

Why not just do it through narrator? 1. Open Narrator Settings by pressing the Windows logo key + Ctrl + N.

2. Tab to Personalize Narrator's voice, tab once more to and select Add more voices. ...

3. Under Manage voices, select Add voices.

4. Select the language you would like to install voices for and select Add.

More items...

You’ve got UK, U.S., Canada and Ireland you can choose from.

Re: Window title for desktop

I couldn't conveniently work with e-mails for a few days, but I'm back.

A longtime ago, going back to Windows 3.1 or earlier, the rough equivalent was called program manager.  This code for the name is evidently still there and for some reason, NVDA sees both codes at different times.

For those who want to check add-on compatibility, the best way might be to have a portable version of NVDA on the machine and see if the add-ons work.
