Addon gesture conflict I just found was Re: [nvda] NVDA and sound


I just noticed something about this addon, because either when I first installed it there was no applications volume for all apps except for NVDA, or I just forgot about it and never used it. The volume down NVDA+ALT+PageDown conflicts with NVDA Remote's end remote session gesture, so I changed that one to include a shift in the Input Gestures dialogue in preferences. Always remember you must remove the old one when you add a new one.

This is why I like tonys-enhancements. I just leave standard NVDA volume at 100 and adjust the volume in tonys-enhancements. • NVDA+Control+PageUp/PageDown - adjust NVDA volume.
• NVDA+Alt+PageUp/PageDown - adjust volume of all applications except for NVDA.

But I digress.
Actually, you don't.  Many people do not realize that (under all OSes) the system sound settings are "the ultimate limiter" but that you can still adjust volume within the limits imposed in application volume settings.

More than once I've seen someone accidentally greatly reduce their system volume, then not being able to figure out why maxxing out the volume in the various applications still has low volume overall.  These two settings interact, and system volume is what determines an absolute max, while application volume (including NVDA's) determines relative loudness up to the absolute max permitted by system settings.

This is one of the reasons that NVDA de-mutes system volume if someone has intentionally or accidentally muted it prior to firing NVDA up.  But, that only goes so far since if the unmuted system volume is, say 2% of the 100% max, you're still unlikely to hear anything even if NVDA's own application volume is set to 100%.

It is much easier to be critical than to be correct.
