    How to Change Default Audio Output Device for Narrator in Windows 10


    Narrator is a screen-reading app built into Windows 10.

    Narrator lets you use your PC without a display or mouse to complete common tasks if youre blind or have low vision. It reads and interacts with things on the screen, like text and buttons. Use Narrator to read and write email, browse the internet, and work with documents.

    Specific commands let you navigate Windows, the web, and apps, as well as get info about the area of the PC you're in. Navigation is available using headings, links, landmarks, and more. You can read text (including punctuation) by page, paragraph, line, word, and character as well as determine characteristics like font and text color. Efficiently review tables with row and column navigation.

    Narrator also has a navigation and reading mode called Scan Mode. Use it to get around Windows 10 using just the up and down arrows on your keyboard. You can also use a braille display to navigate your PC and read text.

    You can personalize Narrator's voice to adjust the speaking rate, pitch, and volume as well as install some third-party text-to-speech voices.

    Narrator lets you select a Narrator audio output device for where you hear Narrator's voice from.

    This tutorial will show you how to select a default audio output device used to play the voice of Narrator from for your account in Windows 10.



    Here's How:

    1. Open Settings, and click/tap on the Ease of Access icon.

    *note You can also press the Win+Ctrl+N keys to directly open Narrator settings.

    2. Click/tap on Narrator on the left side. (see screenshot below)

    3. Select a audio output device you want in the Select where you here Narrator's voice drop menu on the right side under Personalize Narrator's voice.

    *note Narrator uses your Default Audio Device by default.

    *tip This Select where you here Narrator's voice setting is stored in both the DesiredAudioChannel and DisplayedAudioChannel string values in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Narrator\NoRoam key in Registry Editor.

    4. You can now close Settings if you like.

  2. No Audio Output Device is Installed

    Hi,

    You will need to select Windows 8 from the drop down list while installing the driver in compatibility mode.

    I would suggest you to try setting the speaker as default audio output by following the steps below and check if it helps.

    1. Right click on the sound icon on the right bottom corner of the taskbar.

    2. Select "playback devices".

    3. If "speaker" is not set as the default device, highlight it and click "set as default".

    5. Save the changes.

    Let us know the result.

    Vista sound output to two devices

    Ive tried to search this up, but so far I haven't found good results.

    I have a Sound Blaster X-fi PCI-E and the Radeon 4890 HDMI audio for outputs.
    I have them both working separately on the audio devices list on Vista Home Premium.
    I FINALLY got screen cloning to work in games, but audio will only output to one or the other.
    This depends on what I have set to default.

    Is there anyway to get Vista to output all audio to BOTH devices?

    Thanks in advance.
