Bleh, I need to remember the actual name. Hey, at least I was close, right?

I hope that helps the person as I'm not sure if they wanted the desktop or laptop keys. Sorry about typing, my right hand is suffering a lot of joint pain right now, so looks like i need to take a brake. Hopefully this will not effect my job. Bleh.

Anyway, Take care all and I learned, or relearned somethingn new.

Use the voice ring, nvda control shift left right and up down arrows, I think. I'm in laptop mode but consult the quick start guide to know the keyboard commands for the voice ring. I don't know if this is what it is called in the manual but hope that helps a bit.

Re: are there hot keys for raising and lowering speed of speech?

 

You missed 'em.  And you can bring up the list of same when NVDA is running with NVDA+N,H,Q, which opens up the Commands Quick Reference.

Open that and search for the section entitled, 

Synth settings ring

You've got to be on the speech rate setting, but if you are, and don't hop off of it you can use the Increment/Decrement keystrokes to Increase/Decrease the rate.

StationPlaylist add-on 20.05 stable #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

StationPlaylist add-on 20.05 (stable channel) is on its way – it’ll show up via community add-ons website and Add-on Updater by tomorrow at the latest. This release introduces support for Remote VT (voice track), removes user interface associated with time-based broadcast profiles (the feature itself will be gone in June), as well as various internal bug fixes.

 

Cheers,

Trying to get a hold of AudioTheme iPhone package?

Gerardo Corripio
 

I was made aware on my Spanish NVDA Whatsapp group of the availability of the “AudioThemes” AddOn whose info follows

Audio Themes (audiothemes)

Versión: 6.0

Autor: Musharraf Omer<ibnomer2011@...>

Descripción: This add-on creates a virtual audio display that plays sounds when focusing or

navigating objects, the audio will be played in a location that corresponds to the object's

location in the visual display. The add-on also enables you to add, remove, edit, create, and

distribute audio theme packages.

Dirección: https://mush42.github.io/audio-themes/

And I went into the site provided, but I can’t find how I could get a hold of ioS sounds! If anyone of you guys happen to have to share, more and one would surely appreciate! Thanks for any download info.

Hope that helps,

Thunderbird Verbosity Issue: Please move to Chat Subgroup

 

Hello All,

            Although the recent issues with Thunderbird and excessive verbosity are displaying themselves with NVDA, it's been pretty clearly determined that this is not an NVDA problem, and will not be fixed by NVDA.  And while I realize the ongoing progress about this is of interest to many, including myself, it certainly is not of interest to all, nor is it about NVDA, but Thunderbird.

            Please move all further conversation regarding this particular issue to the Chat Subgroup.  When a fix is released, if someone has received it and knows the version, please send that information to nvda+owner@nvda.groups.io and an announcement regarding the fix having gone out will be made.

Hi Jim

It’s a series of keystrokes enabling you to alter aspects of the current synthesizer settings on the fly.  You hold down NVDA+Control, then left/right arrows give you access to Volume, voice, rate, rate boost and pitch then loops back to volume, hence the “ring” analogy.  Once you have selected one of the above controls, still holding down the NVDA+Control keys, use up/down arrows to adjusct the parameter for that control.

I don’t know why, but using the ring only lowers speech and has no effect on NVDA sounds.  I expected the ring and the dialog setting to do the same thing, but the settings aren’t identical in what they do.

Weird! I'll have to go and try that because I'd think lowering the
volume with the synth ring would do the exact same thing. Maybe they are
lowered, but if so they're still significantly louder than speech. It's
also good to know that with the sound off focus changes will be
announced verbally, since I've never messed with that. Thanks all!


Oh yeah, I'm watching a video music lesson. Here it is on Youtube.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mz1I4Nc9iV0


I'm doing it from their website because I just started paying for all
the lessons, but the volume's all the way up. He's just kind of quiet.
Other lessons are louder so they're fine. So I can lower speech
currently and turn him up and get a good volume, but you have to go into
focus mode to start the video playing, and those sounds are louder than
everything else. Now I have a couple ways of fixing it, and I'll bet one
of them will work.
