Well I did it in the set up in the app itself. IE you get a combo box with the sound devices and just set them for that device. Be careful though as some apps misbehave so if you unplug the usb and pludg it back often everything starts to come all from the new one again!

how do you set a app to use the sound card?

eg app 1 would go out the default card

app2

would go to the usb card.

didn't know that windows7 and windows10 could do this?

This is called Quick Mix. However, it stopped working when I went to Win 7
so I don't use it now. It was great, very accessible and easy to use. Wish
the developers would make a new version of it.

Don't think so - it just offers overall master volume recovery, so that if
something else lowers your volume below a certain level, it will restore
master volume to a pre-defined level.

Eloquence delay after launching NVDA.

Darrell Shandrow Hilliker
 

Hello Everyone,

 

I am experiencing a significant delay after launching NVDA with Code Factory’s Eloquence implementation selected as the speech synthesizer.

 

I am running on Windows 10.

 

Does anyone else experience this issue and, if so, what steps have resolved this issue?

 

Thanks,

 

Darrell

I used to try various utilities to try and prevent Windows loading in amuted state or with volume set to zero.

 

Nowadays I do not bother as I routinely use a Microsoft Natural Ergononic  Keyboard  which have clearly tactile media keys including   toglling mute status or volume up and down. Even if the computer is muted a press of the volume up key will unmute the computer.

Many laptops  will also have media keys which presumably perform the same function.

 

If for whatever reason I need to  adjust volumes across the programs loaded I simply press windows key and type sndvol  which opens up a mixer page which does pretty much all of what is described in the third party utility programs in windos already.

A utility app called sound volume view _might_help out here, but, that's

just a guess from description - see below.

 

Haven't even tested/tried it out, but, either way, here's the

download/detail page - the second and third links below the primary

headings on this page offer download of 32 bit and 64 bit versions:

http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/sound_volume_view.html

 

Description

SoundVolumeView is a simple tool for Windows Vista/7/8/2008/10 that

displays general information and current volume level for all active

sound components on your system, and allows you to mute and unmute them

instantly.

SoundVolumeView also allows you to save a sound profile into a file,

containing the current volume level and the mute/unmute state of all

sound components, as well as the default sound devices, and then later,

load the same file to restore exactly the same volume levels and settings.

There is also extensive command-line support, which allows you to

save/load profiles, change current volume of every sound component, and

mute/unmute every sound component, without displaying any user interface.

System Requirements

This utility works on Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 2008,

and Windows 10. Both 32-bit and 64-bit systems are supported.

Windows XP and older systems are not supported.

This looks like a completely different feature to me, and it also mentions
it was written for xp and actully does credit quickmix in the instructions,
so my feeling is that its not going to do very much for you. Looks like some
aid to streaming and recording streams etc, rather than a straight sound
settings back up.
The last update was 2013, but since the instructions say xpk, it is all
very vague what its for and whether it will help us.

There is no point trying the program. The format of the Windows

doesn't work. It has been known not to work for years and I've seen

Re: NVDA and Reaper?

Christopher-Mark Gilland <clgilland07@...>
 


OK, Simon, actually, I did figure out my issue, and it's not a bug after all. As I anticipated, it was me not knowing what I was doing.
 
I was trying to get to the parameters of a plugin within my effects chain, so, I arrowed to the track, hit F to open the effect chain window, down arrowed to the plugin I'd added, then proceeded to tab through that window. I couldn't see any parameters though. I thought that was a bug, since NVDA wasn't showing them. Turns out, I didn't realize that once you are on the plugin in that chain window, you then have to hit the letter P as in papa to bring up the plugin window, where you then can get at the actual controls to further tweak things.
 
For what it's worth, I didn't want to go into that much detail on list, as I figured, like I said, it probably wasn't a bug, but was just my ignorance, but for what it's worth, you asked, so, there ya go.

Re: NVDA and Reaper?

Simon Jaeger
 

Hi,
First, this list does contain a lot of Reaper users so you may as well have written your question here. Asking people to write to you about a subject isn't really any less off topic than writing about the subject. That said, you're asking about using a program with NVDA, so it doesn't seem very off topic to me. I hope you get your question answered on the list.
Second, have you looked at Osara? ReaAccess has had known bugs since Reaper 3, and hasn't received any updates since then. However, Osara replaces its functionality and works very well:
https://github.com/nvaccess/osara
I believe there is a mailing list for it as well (and really, I should probably be on there by now). I'm not sure if it's the same list as ReaAccess. Feel free to write to me about this particular question if you want.

I had actually wanted to use reaper as well, as I'm interested in getting back in to multi track recording. I know I could use audacity, but, I don't have anywhere near enough VST plusings and the ones I do have aren't all that accessible even when you use the VST wrapper.

I wanted to go back to cakewalk, but I'm unsure what happened to the add-on for it nor am I sure as to hwo up to date that add-on is.

Re: Basic overview I'm navigating Thunderbird with NVDA

Hi Tony,


I can't answer the question about ICloud.  You can change the mail notification sound as follows.


1.  Alt + T for tools followed by O for options.

2.  You are in a tree view.  Use up/down arrow keys to highlight the general branch.

3.  tab past a bunch of items until you get to the item concerning playing a sound when new mail arrives.  Check this box using the space bar if it isn't already checked.

4.  If you keep tabbing, you should see an edit box for typing a path and file name for the new sounds.

5.  one tab past that edit field is a browse button.

6.  If you press space bar on the browse button, a standard windows explorer window opens up and you can navigate to the folder and file you want to use for the new mail notification.

7.  when you highlight the desired sound file, then tab to the open or OK button.  This should make the change.

In parts of it it is. I can set up a event etc to tell me when i say get paid each week but do not really put any thing into it apart from that  and that is event that comes up weekly. I can also read what it says.


I do not think the calander interface is accessible but can have more of a sus.


By the way i just wrote up a quick tutorial on setting up a g mail account for thunder bird users so people can send and recieve emails with thunder bird. Probably post that later on tonight with some other stuff.

I have read a few times how people do not like the web interface and if they want to use thunder bird it is a much easier option.

the other thing that has changed in mozilla thunder bird is where the attachments can be found now. They are under the message menu which should be stated in the tutorial of its move and as they used to be under the file menu to insert a attachment is still under the file menu.


Otherwise i do not think mozilla thunder bird has changed much as i use it all of the time.

A few years back i did a tutorial on using mozilla thunder bird along with navigating it and so on and also based at a new user to mozilla thunder bird.  this was  when written using nvda and still is the same concept to use. the chat part does not work with thunder bird with face book though but am sure other might when set up.


The tutorial can be found on my web site at http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/accessible%20email%20client%20mozilla%20thunderbird.html

That link will take you straight to the mozilla thunder bird page i wrote and there is a couple of audio recording to.


you might find other stuff of interest on the website the nvda pages are written for the desk top computer and if you go to the home page it will take you to the main page where you can find other blindness related material.

Re: accessible program that will allow you to restore yoursound profile

I was looking to restore a profile for a given set of items example my speakers and then I create one with my usb headset plugged in.  if when I plug in the headset they don’t work I could press the key stroke and it’s restored.

A utility app called sound volume view _might_help out here, but, that's

just a guess from description - see below.

 

Haven't even tested/tried it out, but, either way, here's the

download/detail page - the second and third links below the primary

headings on this page offer download of 32 bit and 64 bit versions:

http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/sound_volume_view.html

 

Description

SoundVolumeView is a simple tool for Windows Vista/7/8/2008/10 that

displays general information and current volume level for all active

sound components on your system, and allows you to mute and unmute them

instantly.

SoundVolumeView also allows you to save a sound profile into a file,

containing the current volume level and the mute/unmute state of all

sound components, as well as the default sound devices, and then later,

load the same file to restore exactly the same volume levels and settings.

There is also extensive command-line support, which allows you to

save/load profiles, change current volume of every sound component, and

mute/unmute every sound component, without displaying any user interface.

System Requirements

This utility works on Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 2008,

and Windows 10. Both 32-bit and 64-bit systems are supported.

Windows XP and older systems are not supported.

Re: accessible program that will allow you to restore your sound profile

 

how do you set a app to use the sound card?

eg app 1 would go out the default card

app2

would go to the usb card.

didn't know that windows7 and windows10 could do this?

This is called Quick Mix. However, it stopped working when I went to Win 7
so I don't use it now. It was great, very accessible and easy to use. Wish
the developers would make a new version of it.

Don't think so - it just offers overall master volume recovery, so that if
something else lowers your volume below a certain level, it will restore
master volume to a pre-defined level.

Dennis, while this doesn't really implement a hotkey to do it, it can
automatically restore your sound levels, etc. - the stascom utility suite
from the following page:

https://www.stascom.co.za/stascom.html#content



Also offers some other utility functions - check out the documentation.

Re: accessible program that will allow you to restore yoursound profile

I take a  slightly different approach to all this.

 

I used to try various utilities to try and prevent Windows loading in amuted state or with volume set to zero.

 

Nowadays I do not bother as I routinely use a Microsoft Natural Ergononic  Keyboard  which have clearly tactile media keys including   toglling mute status or volume up and down. Even if the computer is muted a press of the volume up key will unmute the computer.

Many laptops  will also have media keys which presumably perform the same function.

 

If for whatever reason I need to  adjust volumes across the programs loaded I simply press windows key and type sndvol  which opens up a mixer page which does pretty much all of what is described in the third party utility programs in windos already.

A utility app called sound volume view _might_help out here, but, that's

just a guess from description - see below.

 

Haven't even tested/tried it out, but, either way, here's the

download/detail page - the second and third links below the primary

headings on this page offer download of 32 bit and 64 bit versions:

http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/sound_volume_view.html

 

Description

SoundVolumeView is a simple tool for Windows Vista/7/8/2008/10 that

displays general information and current volume level for all active

sound components on your system, and allows you to mute and unmute them

instantly.

SoundVolumeView also allows you to save a sound profile into a file,

containing the current volume level and the mute/unmute state of all

sound components, as well as the default sound devices, and then later,

load the same file to restore exactly the same volume levels and settings.

There is also extensive command-line support, which allows you to

save/load profiles, change current volume of every sound component, and

mute/unmute every sound component, without displaying any user interface.

System Requirements

This utility works on Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 2008,

and Windows 10. Both 32-bit and 64-bit systems are supported.

Windows XP and older systems are not supported.

This looks like a completely different feature to me, and it also mentions
it was written for xp and actully does credit quickmix in the instructions,
so my feeling is that its not going to do very much for you. Looks like some
aid to streaming and recording streams etc, rather than a straight sound
settings back up.
The last update was 2013, but since the instructions say xpk, it is all
very vague what its for and whether it will help us.

There is no point trying the program. The format of the Windows
volume control changed in Windows 7 or in Vista and the program
doesn't work. It has been known not to work for years and I've seen
that information in more than one previous discussion.
