New NVDA sounds


Bhavya shah
 

Hi all,

Special thanks to Kara and Andre. I keep the focus and browse mode
sounds disabled, and I will toy with the idea of modifying the start
and exit sounds, but what I am grateful for is to have been able to
change the error sound. The built-in one is very loud and, may I say,
obnoxious, and I think the alternative sound is a definite
improvement. Many thanks for that.

Thanks.

Yep.  And if you do end up picking and choosing some of them, but
not others, once you've got what you want copied over into C:\program
files (x86)\nvda\waves as replacements, you'd be wise to ZIP up that
folder so that you have it to conveniently unzip at a later date on a
later install of NVDA that has the original sounds.

I can hear them now.  I missed them since I have my main audio sent to
my bluetooth audio receiver so turned it off for now.

And since the extracted files are just plain wave files, you can listen to all of them first. You may decide you want them all, you may decide on some, or perhaps none.

Hi Ralf, from Ron Kolesar.
Thanks to your drop box folder, I now have the audio wave files for NVDA.
How do I install them into NVDA to work?
Many Thanks.

Hello everyone,

some years ago the sounds of NVDA should have been renewed, but were discarded.

Do any of you still have these sounds and could you send them to me?

Thank you very much in advance and best regards Ali

Tony,

I used Reaper and the reaSynth plugin it comes bundled with. I'm not sure what andre used.

If you like, write me off list and I'd be happy to see about making some sounds for you. It'd be something to keep my mind of things. :)

All the best,

Kara

Or, back up the old waves folder and copy the new wave files into the original folder.  You will be asked if you want to copy files for which duplicate names exist.  Answer yes when you get such questions and the old files for things like the screen curtain will just be left alone, since there are no duplicately named files in the new waves folder.  Replacing the old files with new ones and leaving sounds that shouldn’t be replaced isn’t difficult nor time consuming.
