Edit boxes? All attempts to do so were completely ignored.

Already tried reset to factory settings: Didn't help!

What happens when you try to activate edit boxes?
Try the obvious thing. NVDA menu, Reset configuration to factory defaults.
You'll keep your addons, but will have to reset a few of your speech
settings.

I was using NVDA version 2015.4 on my Win7, 64-bit machine to access

www.amazon.com/access

very successfully up to sometime last week.

Then, the next time I went to that access point, I could read the

Guessing that the Amazon web-site programmers had been tinkering again,
I thought that perhaps, if I updated to NVDA version 2016.1, it would
overcome some new condition on the web site. So, I updated, however,
the problem persists!

This morning, I used my XPPro machine, which is still running NVDA
version 2015.4, to access the above mentioned access point. Everything
there worked as it should! I suppose I could continue to use that
machine to access the Amazon site, however, that machine is much slower
than the Win7 machine.

Incidently, the WinXP machine is running InternetExplorer Version:
8.0.6001.18702. The Win7 machine is running InternetExplorer version 11
and FireFox's latest version, whatever that is. I experience the same
conditions described above on the Win7 machine with both of its browsers
even though it both of those browsers had been working fine previously.

So, I am convinced that the problem with NVDA's inability to properly
behave on the Win7 machine when accessing the Amazon access point is
unrelated to the version of NVDA or the version of the browsers.

The question is, therefore, what is the easiest way to identify which
key combination could I have pressed to cause the problem and what do I
need to do to undo the damage?

All helpful suggestions appreciated!

I doubt this problem has anything to do with NVDA.  It only affects one web site, at least that appears to be the case from what is said.  And there is no NVDA setting that can cause this combination of behaviors.  You can do things like stop NVDA from reporting various structures and controls but not to stop NVDA from acting on them if you issue commands to act on them.

NVDA keeps announcing "Pane"!

Mailing Lists
 

Hi All,

I have been trying to find out the cause of why NVDA on two of my computers
keeps announcing "Pane" whenever I alt + tab between windows. Is this a
normal thing for NVDA to do or can it be somehow stopped. It becomes
annoying after some time of moving between windows.
I am using two computers with Windows 7 on both.
Any suggestions would be welcome.

Many thanks,

Paul.

Re: Virtual Recorder

I suspect the program is set to record in monaural.  That isn't the default, as I recall, but make sure the recording parameters are set to create a stereo file.  I have never seen settings in sound cards for recording in monaural or stereo.  The only settings I've seen have been in recording programs.

Re: Virtual Recorder

Berhinger seems to be the one most are advertising.

As regards the both setting, yes, that is right, its not vertual, but I notice that on some hardware, the monitor of a selected input can be recorded when not in both, but not on all machines, so I guess this points to the monitor function in some cases being hardware in the card, and in others software,whch is why one gets latency on some cards but not on others presumably.

The point usually is that if you have any input selected and its monitor is on you will record it, however the big thing about virtual recorder is that it can record from the output so to speak as well as the input, thus any codec capable of sending sound to the output is recorded. Its called virtual because there is often not this option in the sound card software at all, however as the audio is indeed there, then it can be recorded. as was mentioned earlier its an all or nothing recorder in that all inputs and the streamed content are recorded when what you hear is selected. If other inputs are enabled with monitor then they too get recorded, so you need to be a bit careful.
Not tried it but one assumes if the line in is enabled and you have a hardware mixer in use and enable that input to monitor, Virtual record will also record that along with the system sounds and the screenreader, so you can do m demos.
I've recently found that it will work with that cheap but good quality little usb box sold under many names that has phono sockets aand auto volume setting so very good quality recordings can be made easily without overloading.

Your sound card has different settings such as line-in and microphone. If you set the sound card to a source, that is what you would be recording with it. If you set it to microphone, you would only record the microphone. Your sound card may not have a line-in setting. Many laptops don't have line in jacks and you need to use another sound card, such as a USB external sound card to get a line-in jack.

Virtual device doesn't use your sound card. Windows 7 and higher has something that can do what I described using the virtual device setting. I don't have the technical knowledge to discuss it further to any extent. The point is that it will record anything you hear through your sound card but your sound card is not what is being recorded from. I should add that I don't know if you can record things your sound card isn't set to play. But the point is that when you use virtual device as the setting, you can directly record your screen-reader. The microphone doesn't have to be used. You can record an Internet stream. You can record music and you speking using a microphone at the same time. I haven't played with it enough to go into detail about how you might turn off the internal microphone so that you would only record your screen-reader and, for example, and Internet stream. Others who have used this feature or the same feature in another program may be able to provide much more information.

I'm not sure where using the both setting would be an advantage.
I haven't used virtual device and other options in the program enough to discuss how to get desired results as to what sources are recorded. Perhaps all sources are recorded when using virtual device and you can't change them. In that case, if you want to record an internet stream, and not record the internal microphone, you might have to stop the microphone from functioning by plugging a plug into the microphone jack with nothing connected to it. But I'm speculating and just providing an example of how you might get around the problem. It is not necessarily the only or best way.

Also, XP users should know that the virtual device method can't be used in that version of Windows. The program can be used to record from the sound card but XP doesn't support the virtual device method of recording.

Hi Gene,
Please explain this further. I had no idea about all of this. Could you please explain all three options and when you use which one. I keep it on both, because it records JAWS and my voice through a built in mike so I can do tutorials. When do you use the first and third choice. Also, what is the difference between a virtual device and your sound card. Could you give some examples of virtual devices, and why is the program called, virtual recorder? What you said makes this program more important than I thought. Thanks a lot. I like to learn, so I will enjoy what you have to say.

You keep saying the choice is between your sound card and your voice. When you record your voice, you are recording using the microphone input of your sound card. The real advantages of this program are that it allows you to record from both a virtual device and a sound card simultaneously so you can mix things in more ways. You can also record from just a virtual device. the virtual device ability allows you to record things such as Internet Streams even if your sound card doesn't support the What You Hear or Stereo Mix option. This option has other names as well. If your sound card supports it, you can record anything your sound card plays. It has become increasingly difficult to find sound cards that support StereoMix in later versions of Windows. Virtual Device gives you another way to do the same thing and may save you a good deal of fooling around and may save you the need to purchahse another sound card.

In other words, when you record from your soundcard, you can record whatever sources your sound card supports. If you set your sound card to line in, you can record line-in. If you set your sound card recording source to Microphone, you can record using your Microphone etc.

When using the virtual device setting, you can record as though your sound card supports stereo mix. But you are not recording using your sound card.

If this is difficult to understand, I'll attempt to explain it further but more people might be interested in the program and might realize more ways in which it can be used if they understand this distinction.

But one example is that if you want to record an Internet stream and your sound card doesn't support stereo Mix, you can use the virtual device setting to record the stream as it plays. But if you do, you can't do things such as use a screen-reader. The screen-reader will be recorded as well.

Hi Jolene,
I have the link for the virtual recorder, that I will put below. It will
work on your Windows PC. A good friend, gave me this web site done by a guy
named Carlos nazario. The site, when brought up, just says files, and there
are a number of programs you can download from this site. Press H for
heading until you hear virtual recorder installer, or the next heading says
virtual recorder portable. I pressed enter on the virtual recorder installer
and installed it to my computer. After you install it, tab to settings and
set up a shortcut command for pause and some other tasks you will want
virtual recorder to do. It is very accessible. You will tab to a record
button and just press it to record. Now, there is a list that you must pick
a recording choice from. You can record what comes from the sound card, both
the sound card and your voice, , or just your voice. The top choice is the
first one and so on. Here is the link, and let me know if you have any
questions. Here is the link.

Take care.

Hello there,

I just did a Google search on "Virtual Recorder," which someone had
recommended for us Windows 10 users who're searching for a sound
recorder that'll work with both Windows 10 and NVDA.
Here's a few of the links I discovered:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ix.com.android.VirtualRecorder&hl=en

http://virtual-recorder.soft112.com/

One appears to be for Android phones, and the other one appears to be
some kind of stand-alone device, but I think some of us is looking for
one for PC's if such a software exists.

Then when I did a search for "Virtual Audio Recorder," I got this link:

http://www.virtualaudiorecorder.com/

So my question is this: Is it called Virtual Recorder, Virtual Audio
Recorder, or something else?

Please be specific, because even when one word of the software name is
off, a person will get the wrong information!

Thank you.

aloha,

Jolene.

Well I don't really use it for that, I would use a real sound recorder/editor which as the full range of adjustments.
I only really use it for recording the unrecordable streams.
I suspect if its a laptop it may well have no stereo mode in any case. I found that my old Dell seems to, but its burried in the hardware settings for the sound card.

hello everyone,

Thank you for your responses about this program.

I had installed it last night on my Windows 10-based laptop and had to
make some minor adjustments in the Enhancements menu in the Advanced
tab because the audiorecording from my sound card, RealTech High
Definition Audio Device, was coming out sounding real funny.
Just so you folks would know: I use my RealTech High Definition Audio
Device for both playback and recording.
The only thing I don't like is that Virtual Recorder records through
it in mono instead of in stereo.
How can I make adjustments to my RealTech High Definition Audio Device
in order to make it record in stereo?
Thanks in advance for your recommendations, and have a good day.

aloha,

Jolene.
