I can confirm that all the testing was successful, but found one significant problem with NVDA. Given that I've two sound cards in this system, I've dedicated one to screen reader speech, and use the other for all other sound output. If I run NVDA, I get a driver conflict when running Sonar 8.5. I checked my settings in NVDA, and it is set to output to the correct card. Having unplugged various things, I can safely say that it is using the card used for other sounds, despite the fact that the preference box says otherwise. I chose to ignore the error, and proceeded. All controls were announced correctly, and I was able to manipulate tracks in my test project with no problem. The speech was a bit crackly at times, which was probably down to the fact that I can't get NVDA to change sound cards. Any thoughts? Best, David.
