Certainly. I use Audacity for moderate projects, but the thing you should be looking into is Reaper.

You sure can search for music on spotify. I do this all the time. Simply tap the search button, then scroll down to the list of songs, and hit shift enter on the one you want to hear. As for volume I think it's control up and down arrow.

Re: Work with audio editors in professional way with Nvda possible or not?

Jesse Farquharson
 

Hello,

You can indeed do professional audio work on a Windows 10 machine. However, I would recommend checking out Reaper.

Reaper is a multitrack editor which, while fairly advanced at times, should be able to get you going.

After downloading Reaper you will also need to download the extension that makes it accessible, OSARA. You should also grab the SWS/SSM extension, as that adds extra functionality.

Check out rwp@groups.io, as well. That's a mailing list for Reaper users who use a screenreader. They can help you get started.

Hope this helps.

I was also facing the problem of the Quick Nav add-in not working properly since Thunderbird updated but the following work-around has fixed the problem for me.


When I start Thunderbird, I open one of my received mails & close it. After that, the Quick Nav add-in works perfectly.

You don't have to use the expressVPN control panel, you can actually use open VPN.

There are some instructions on how to do this on the express VPN website after you log in.

I subscribed to Express VPN for a year when I knew I'd be using a university wifi during the 2018/19 academic year. I found it bvarely useable with NVDA ... none of its buttons were labeled. I did figure out which button activated the VPN but in the end I gave up! If I recall, object navigation was necessary even to find the buttons.
