I tried doing both the system tray and with the equalizer and nothing worked. The volume is as high as it'll go and it's still very low. I don't know what else to do.

That probably has little to do with winamp.
Couple of things you could try if you haven't:
Make sure Winamp has a high enough volume set in your Windows audio mixer. You can get to it from the system tray. If you have Windows 10, you can control the output volume of the various applications that use audio. Not good for fine-tuning in my experience, but if you find a programme always has a low volume, it doesn't hurt to check.
Make sure the volume in Winamp is high enough. Up and down arrows usually control this, as you probably know.

Finally, winamp has a pre-amp as well. This is for boosting the amplitude of sounds that have a low output volume, IE, the volume of the stream or file itself is low. Open the equalizer with alt-g. You'll probably have to ctrl-tab to put focus on the equalizer. Then, hit the grave accent key to increase the preamp power. You don't want to do this too much or else you'll get distortion. Just boost the sound until it's comfortable.

Hi all,

 

Has anybody tried to develop an addon for discord? It would be really handy if an addon could be developed as a lot of people use it now. Yes you can use it in a browser but I believe the app has much greater functionality.

Re: question

Annette Moore
 

I started using NVDA earlier this year when I heard that Serotek may not be focusing much at all on System Access in the coming months and years, and that there was a good chance system Access wouldn't be updated at some point. Also, a friend of mine had been sort of gently pushing me to try NVDA. I'd had NVDA as a backup screen reader on my computer for years and used it in a pinch, but I really didn't know much about it and consequently was pretty intimidated at the idea of learning a whole new screen reader. I don't kno why, because I had to learn System Access at one point when I stopped using JAWS because I couldn't afford it. :) Interesting how learning one thing wasn't intimidating but the idea of learning yet another screen reader was. I bit the bullet, though, and learned it, and for the last several months, NVDA has been my primary screen reader. I love it!

Re: Question on settings

The original message didn't say that this previous line reading only occurs in a list.  It was a general statement so if the behavior is limited, we don't know it from the message.  I suspect, though we'll see if we find out, that this is because screen review is being used instead of object review.

Hi

The first question is solved by switching off echo typed character using NVDA+2 on number row but personally, I leave it on to re-assure myself I’ve typed the correct letter.  I have replicated the problem you experienced in question 2 and indeed, NVDA+UpArrow always spoke the line previous to the one containing the system caret, irrespective of whether you use up or down arrows to position on a folder.  When I tried a second time to replicate the issue, NVDA+UpArrow was working correctly, so I think this may be an intermittent fault.  I must confess, I never use NVDA+UpArrow, so had not noticed a problem.  I just tap up arrow followed by down arrow to check my position in the tree view.

When I’m in a tree view looking for a document, I type the letter “D: to get to Desktop or Dropbox. NVDA announces “D: Desktop or “D: Dropbox, depending on how many times I’ve hit the letter “D:. What do I change in Settings to get NVDA to just say Desktop, Dropbox, etc and not always preface things with the letter “D”?

 

Also, when I press NVDA/up arrow, NVDA is reading the line prior to the line where the system focus is located. What do I need to change to get NVDA/up arrow to read the line that I am on?

 

Thanks.

Hi !

I started using NVDA most of the time in the second half of 2010, as the XP computer I had back then had power issues and NVDA used less resources than JAWS. When I replaced my XP computer with the Windows 7 laptop I am still using as I write this, my JAWS was too old for Windows 7 and I couldn’t afford to upgrade JAWS, so for nearly eight years now I have been using NVDA full-time. I used to say that I would probably use JAWS again if it’s needed for a job, but, now that I am unlikely to find a job, I expect to only use NVDA, which gets better and better every year, in my opinion.

Bye for now!

I started using NVDA full-time in 2011 because I could no longer afford the Jaws upgrades. I haven't looked back.

I started using nvda in 2010. I ditched the shark cold and made nvda my primary screen reader by the next day. I was and still am not good at using it but I can get around now that the laptop keyboard finally makes more sense.

Take care and love nvda.

Hi!

I started using NVDA over 30 percent of the time in March, 2015.

I had used it some clear back in 2007, and I used on a library computer at Ohio state University in 2008.

Now, I use NVDA at least 90 percent of the time, and I use it in situations that I never thought I would use it in.

Thank you for this community, and making NVDA and all add-ons what it is today!

Hi, I started with NVDA in Dec 2013. I put it on my system because I was going to use it for the trip to Vegas we were taking over Christmas that year. It has taken me almost 5 years to fully make the switch, though.

 

The reason I'm asking this question is because there are a lots of screen readers out there to choose from many of you choose NVDA over Jaws. 
I really want to know why. 
Now I got my answer now. 
All comments and feedbacks are more then welcome to come in. 
Thanks all for taking your time to answer my question. 
Best Regards Michael Munn

Also, if you have K1000 installed on your machine, then you’ll have eloquence.

The problems are mostly with the file format in which you receive the material (e.g., untagged PDF) rather than with NVDA.

 

If it’s PDF, running ABBYY FineReader on it to convert to HTML or Microsoft Word format should give better results – even if the original PDF contains text characters rather than merely images of text.

It is a little unclear what you mean. Are you talking about the proprietary header/ footer identifiers in many  PDF versions of Journals?

When I was doing my PhD, if there were annoying header ore  footer information labels, I would simply transfer all the text to something like MS Word,  or even Wordpad, select and copy the footer text  and then press control G  to simply find and replace all the instances of the footer/header  text  with a space.

This would certainly give you a smoother reading experience with NVDA say all function though it may be important to retain any page number information for referencing purposes.

You can specify how NVDA treats numbers in settings so this should not be specific to any document type.

hi all,

 

So as I have started my masters, I have to read many journal articles

with nvda. Is there special settings in nvda I need to select to prevent

nvda from reading the grant information, or author information in the

middle of random pages in the article? Or to make it read figures properly?

What I'd like to know, is what does this new version have to offer compared to the version we've been using for years?
