I'm guessing you don't know about the NVDA Quick Command Reference, available by pressing NVDA+N, H, Q. If you had opened that, you could have searched for "ducking" with a normal webpage search (NVDA+Ctrl+F), and gotten an answer even faster!

Re: A problem with the nvda user guide

It seems to have crept in since 2021.3.5.  I've created an issue: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/13821

It should be a simple fix.  Thanks for flagging it!

Re: Eloquence and Vocalizer Expressive Add-on

David Goldfield
 

I just took a look at Code Factory’s app store and I now see that Eloquence for Windows is available for purchase but Vocalizer for Windows is not. I apologize for the incorrect information that I wrote in my previous message.

This means that users who really like Eloquence and who want to be sure that it will always work with NVDA can purchase the Windows version. This gives you the added benefit of being able to test addon breaking releases and still continue to use Eloquence.

Quentin, you’re absolutely right. Code Factory did update the Eloquence-Vocalizer addon very shortly after 2022.1 was released. It is also possible to purchase a SAPI5 version of Vocalizer if users don’t want to deal with waiting for addon updates. While Code Factory used to sell a SAPI5 version of Eloquence I didn’t see it on their Web site when I last checked.

I believe they updated it not long after NVDA 2022.1 came out (so, yes Sarah, this is to work with the version of NVDA which came out 4 weeks ago) - however they didn't change the download name or details on the page (the page heading now does NOT list a version number where it used to list v1.11 from memory).

 

In any case, it should all be working now once you download the latest version.

Re: Beta NVDA Eloquence and Vocalizer addon question

David Goldfield
 

Daniel,

For addon-breaking releases it is possible that addon updates to addons may not get released during the beta cycle. Therefore, if you want to use NVDA knowing that it will work with Code Factory’s addon it is best to wait until the final NVDA update has been released.

I look forward to hearing your suggestions on this matter.

Re: holding off on 2022.1 due to Code Factory dragging their feet

Joshua Hendrickson
 

I personally love NVDA and have been using it for years. A good
friend of mine who is no longer with us was the one who introduced me
to the program. When I get a new computer, I will have NVDA on it as
well as the latest version of jaws. I will also get the code factory
eloquence as well as the vocalizer stuff. I might even get the
acapela voices. However, getting the license for all those voices
isn't cheap. The last time I checked on those voices, it would cost
me something like $200 for the license. I like NVDA very much. Even
though I'm on windows7, it works great. Its very nice that the
companies that you purchase voices from are willing to work with you
guys to make the voices work with the new updates to the NVDA program.

A problem with the nvda user guide

William
 

Hi all,

I am referring to the user guide of nvda 2022.1

There is a table under 5.3. Navigating with the System Caret

When nvda focus onto the table, it says there are 8 rows and 5 columns, but moving around the table, I only find 4 columns.


Am I missing something here?

Hi Group,

The latest NVDA Version 22.1 and Team Viewer latest versions does not
provide any useful accessibility.

I am not too sure which has caused this problem. Because I have both latest
versions running.

When I open Team Viewer NVDA does not speak anything. Earlier can move with
Tab and get into the menu and other required cells.

But now nothing.

Even Object navigation does not provide much help.



Anything am I missing or doing wrong?

Team Viewer was fairly accessible with NVDA rather than Any-Desk. But now
giving problem.



Kindly advice.

Thanks,

Ravi.

Re: Issue With This Apparently Phantom Item 'Task Switcher' With Recent Updates of NVDA

I experienced this on my Windows 11 laptop. I agree it is quite annoying. I found a workaround - you need to enable classic Alt+Tab dialog:
1. Install program called winaero tweaker
2. Appearance > Alt-Tab appearance > Enable classic Alt+Tab dialog
