Mumble for Windows Users

Mumble is pretty much hands down the best voice chat software on the planet. It has awesome features, and uses the opus codec, so it doesn’t require a lot of bandwidth and yet the sound quality is very high. The problem is, Windows users who rely on a screen reader can’t use it because of some kind of keyboard conflict. So, until y’all can switch over to Linux, where this problem never existed to begin with, here’s a solution.
First, install mumble. Then, after running through the installation, run this registry file that disables some keyboard hooks that interfere with mumble. I’m not even sure why they are there to begin with, but doing this does not, so far as anyone who has tested it can tell, cause you to lose any keyboard functionality. That’s it, from now on your screen reader of choice and Mumble should live together in perfect harmony. Of course, since you’re using Windows, remember to virus scan anything you get before running it. This includes the registry file linked to above. I have the file hosted here on my server, but you can never be too careful.
