Beeping on Web Pages using Chrome


Richard Wells
 

Hi: on only one of my computers,I am hearing what sound like progress
beeps as I navigate in the virtual buffer on web pages. Any idea what I
may have turned on in preferences. I have lots of add-ons, so I don't
really know where to start finding what I've changed. I am sure I did it
but I just cannot figure out how to diagnose it. Thanks for any ideas
you all may have.

I forgot to say this is (NVDA) Version: 2020.3.

Hi Richard, This sounds like it would be aggravating, Have you
pressed the CTRL key and tapped the letter J key to see if there's
something trying to download or re-download in this list of your
downloaded files?

No, it is not a download. It only occurs when I am navigating on web pages.

Hi is it a back ground progress sound . Under object navigation the following might be turned on called Report background progress bars.

Try unchecking that and see what happens.


The toggle to turn of beeps is the nvda key + letter u which will do sounds as in beeps, speak or off.



Are you using a alfa or beta of nvda you will get beeps there on the page if it comes across problems but if keeps on going do not worry.



I thought there might of been a setting if you were using audio themes but there is only one when the page loads.

Are you using a program that tells you when the page is loaded with sounds..

It could be one of your addons are unable to complete an update. I
know you said you have a bunch installed, but you may need to disable
them one by one in order to track down the culprit.

Take care,

Do you have the browzer Nav? Go to its setting and set beeper volume to a lower level.

We don't know what is meant by while moving. Are you saying the beeps change in pitch as you move a round a page or something else?

It could be that you have indentation beeps turned on.
While your browser is running, press NVDA+ctrl+D (desktop layout). Then press alt+I.
If that combo box is set to anything other than "off", move it to "off" and press enter.

I think I've experienced the beeping you're experiencing, but not for quite a while. I was using Firefox rather than Chrome but every time I moved down the page with the down cursor, I'd get periodic single beeps. I don't think it was every line, it was as if it was beeping to indicate I was a certin percentage far down the page. I think the pitch changed, getting lower as I navigated down the page and then higher if I arrowed back up the page.

It was not every website,just some and, annoyingly, I can't remember which!

I did a quick search of the NVDA group for the term "beeping" because I couldn't remember if I discussed it here. Apparently I didn't, but there are a couple of possible related discussions about beeping when navigating a webpage. The topic I posted about beeping was only to do with hearing the progress beeps of some downloads, which isn't relevant to your situation.

The only thing I can add is that I haven't heard it since probably 2019 and, assuming the beeping doesn't ever return for me, it wasn't an NVDA setting that stopped it. It was likely a website that I've not visited since ... something like a post on the Medium blogging platform or something.

its due to brouser nav nvda add on which i found out just now.
after removing that, this problem is gone.
I will re-install that add on and see whats the exact issue.

It sounds like a progress beep, but it is not. As I arrow on the page,
especially one with tables, I can hear either ascending or descending
beeps depending on which direction I am navigating.

And this is precisely why one of the earliest steps in doing "issue related" debugging is restarting NVDA with add-ons disabled.  It's simple to do, and if the issue vanishes then you have confirmation that it's with an add-on, not NVDA itself.

Then, depending on how many add-ons you have, you go through the process of disabling them all in add-ons manager, then re-enabling them either one at a time (if you have only a couple) or in groups until the issue reappears.  If you were doing one-by-one reenabling, you instantly know your culprit.  If you were doing groups, you know the group it's in, disable those all again, and reenable one-by-one to find out which one in the group is the culprit.
