Re: Discrepancy Between NVDA and Youtube sounds

Hi

What have you set the volume slider to in the YouTube window itself?  There is also the Volume Mixer app in Windows 10 which you can open by pressing Windows+r, typing “sndvol” (without the quotes) and pressing enter.  This displays the relative volume settings of audio related apps currently running.  An app must be running to appear in this list, so start your YouTube video and pause it before opening volume mixer.

 

Cheers

Chris

No ducking gave the best result, but still not good enough.

There must be another way of equalizing the sound volume of NVDA and

Youtube videos.

my bluetooth headset doesn't pick up the first little bit of what nvda is saying?

Norman <lists@...>
 

Hello.

I'm having a bit of an issue with my bluetooth headsets that it's not picking up the first part of what the tts is saying. This makes it sound choppy. Is there a fix for this?

If i'm streaming music or other audio in the background this is not an issue.

The computer is on windows 10, and this is a problem with different headsets.


Any ideas?


Re: Discrepancy Between NVDA and Youtube sounds

I usually solve this by using the Windows 10 volume mixer to increase the web browser's volume to a good level, and then turn NVDA down with the synth settings ring, or use the volume mixer to find a comfortable maximum for NVDA.

After I establish some normalized situation there, I then use NVDA's synth ring to change the volume as needed when I am playing or not playing other audio sources such as the browser, or Audacity, or whatever.

To get to the volume mixer, press Windows+B to get to your notification area. Then move down until you hear the volume object (it might say something like headphone/speaker volume 90% or similar).
Use your applications key, or press shift+F10 to open this menu, and move down to "volume mixer". Press enter on that, and you can then use tab to control the volume of the programs you have open.

Use alt+F4 to close the volume mixer. Or I suppose you could just alt+tab away from it and leave it open for later use.

Re: Can NVDA has a function to detect hotkey conflict when installing addon

Luke Davis
 

I really don't know. I thought I had seen discussion of it before, but I couldn't find it, which is why I suggested you post it.

We will find out, and either way, it's out there now.

I believe that your headset model is not supporting two channels voices at the same time,
So I advise you to purchase a new headset like what I have done before.

I use an extension called "sound booster that works" in Chrome. If the video is too low,, you can click on it, or set a hotkey to it, so that the video's volume increases. It is fast and works very well!

You should hear aalways duck, no ducking, duck when out putting speech

Re: Image describer addon download link is showing error

 

Hello all,

The NVDA add-ons community is investigating two possible follow-ups:

  1. Asking the author of Image Describer add-on about his response.
  2. Promoting a potential replacement named Online Image Describer by Larry Wang.

Because the latter is essentially Image Describer add-on with improvements made, the community will remove original Image Describer provided that the author says so and the community cannot maintain it due to costs for upkeep and other matters beyond our control. As of now, until the matter is fully resolved, I request everyone to disable Image Describer add-on.

Cheers,

Joseph (P.S. I'm in vacation, so won't be able to respond to emails on this list in a timely manner)

I doubt that anyone would disagree.  But you appear to be the first person to have hit the issue, and I'm giving a few days more before giving up entirely.

It will likely be removed on request if the developer will not respond to communications sent to him.

Re: about audio related issue on bluetooth headset

Tony Malykh
 

NVDA stops speaking completely when you are playing  a song? What program are you using to play songs? My only suspicion would be that your program is switching your headphones into headset mode, so that's effectively another audio device, and NVDA keeps sending speech to the old audio device, which is ignored since your headphones are in headset mode. Not sure if headset mode is the right term - but I mean that mode that for example skype uses to capture audio from your headphones and send audio with lower latency. This mode is known to be different from the normal mode for bluetooth headphones, that typically provides  higher quality and higher latency audio. So maybe try another program to play music or figure out what's the output device for music?

Microsoft Word Sluggishness Issue Fixed by Running Com Registration Fixing Tool

David Goldfield
 

Hi. In a previous message I wrote about my frustration regarding noticeable sluggishness when navigating character by character in a Microsoft Word document.

In yet another thread I wrote a workaround responding to someone who indicated that sometimes NVDA did not respond properly when first opening a Word document. At one point Quentin commented and recommended running the Com Registration Fixing Tool from the NVDA Tools menu. He said that he wasn't sure if doing this would correct the problem but he encouraged people to at least try it. I remembered this and decided to run the tool. Amazingly, both of the above mentioned issues are fixed, at least on my machine.

1. Cursor responsiveness while navigating in Word is just about the same as when navigating in another word processor, such as Jarte.

2. NVDA now focuses properly in the document window when I open Word.

I am extremely pleased and just wanted to report this.

By the way, I e-mailed the developer not too long after posting my reply.  It's been dead silence.  My presumption is that the project has been abandoned.  If I get a very late reply indicating otherwise I'll follow-up.

Re: NVDA Misbehaving

Eilana Benish
 

Hello Ibrahim.
I had this problem many years ago and it seems that the only thing that helped me at that time was too reinstall again NVDA. you could do that with another running screen reader or with portable version of NVDA.
The best thing you could do is to remove NVDA completely from your computer and reinstall it again.
After removing NVDA from your computer it is important also to delete the NVDA folder from the <user, Update, Roaming, nvda, from your computer. Then restart your system and reinstall NVDA.
I'm afraid that other solutions will only complicate the use of NVDA properly .
Also, I suggest you checked if your browsers are up-to-date and if the Accessibility features are not turned off.
It is very important to use the last version of the browser as well as the screen reader that way you can achieve the most effective compatibility on your system.
Good luck
Eilana

Hi good people:
How can one trouble shoot NVDA.
The screen reader is just not working properly on my computer any longer. I've done the com registration fixing tools on the tools menu, and I still hear unknown when I attempt to open a web page. Some times the page opens, at other times, the page is not read, I just hear unknown, and the screen reader shuts itself down, and I have to restart it again from the desktop.
Added to that, the screen reader is too slow. It does not start early enough, it takes minutes before it starts, and other problems.
The question now is: what can I do about these problems? how can I fix these problems.
I use a windows7-32 bit computer, and I use the last version of NVDA.
I am prompted to install the latest version, but the pop up normally comes when I am very busy.
Thanks for your support.
