As long as the system sees the Bluetooth device as a separate sound card you should be able to do it.

Subject: [nvda] NVDEA aAnd Sound Cards

 

Hi friends,

 

Just a quick query, it may well even be a simple one.

I Am using a Microsoft surface Pro and I connect this to my Bos Bluetooth speaker for music playback.

Is there a way that I can use NVDA on the internal Surface Pro sound card and speakers and then just leave all other sounds on the Bluetooth device?

 

Many thanks in anticipation for any help.

I tried it and had to shut down because the reaction time was tremendously slow. So, I guess I am going to have to bite the bullet and install it over 2019.2.1

i have a question about one item for accessibility of firefox:

 

hello nvda users and developers.
can someone please explain for me the usage and benefit or
disadvantages of activating this item in firefox about:config?
this item was introduced first in firefox 51.
accessibility.AOM.enabled
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Glossary/AOM
is this really one useful feature to activate it?
thanks for any of your help, God bless you all!

No, your existing copy of NVDA will be replaced by the beta. You might want

Hi.
The NVDA 2019.3 will have screen curtain. After installing the beta you can
create a gesture which will allow you to enable the screen curtain. The
screen curtain turns the screen black. This means sighted folks will not be
able to see what you are doing. My mum confirmed this, as she was not able
to see anything I was doing while screen curtain on.

Hi.

The NVDA 2019.3 will have screen curtain. After installing the beta you can create a gesture which will allow you to enable the screen curtain. The screen curtain turns the screen black. This means sighted folks will not be able to see what you are doing. My mum confirmed this, as she was not able to see anything I was doing while screen curtain on.

Also there’s a warning message that appears when you enable screen curtain but you can disable it.

Hi.

In the beta  there is a vision category. Along with focus highlight there’s screen curtain. If you go to input gestures, scroll down to the vision category, expand it, and you will see something like toggles the state of the screen curtain. I think the vision category can also be found in NVDA settings.

Re: burning mp3s to cd with NVDA

 

hi.
i believe that all versions of burnaware are accessible for screen readers.
sometimes, in the what's new, i read accessibility improvement, or
better support for screen readers.
since i did not burn cd dvd for several years, i did not test any of
programs myself.
unfortunately, burnaware.com
does not archive older versions of its program anymore.

I have some mp3 files that I want to burn to a cd. I have tried using the
normal burning method via windows media player but it says it can't burn
some of the files and doesn't want to burn any of them. I thought I had
another way using FreemakeVC but it will only convert audio files, it won't
burn them to a CD.

Does anyone know of another way that is compatible with NVDA? Looking at
google shows a ton of them but no indication which is NVDA compatible. Free
would be better too. :)
