Re: Using Kodi with nvda, and the speech addon.

Once gotten running, kodi works great.

It takes some getting used to as the commands are different, but is
wonderful for audio and video.

Try doing a complete uninstall, install version 16 using the install
with screen-reader add-on option and the screenreadeer should be
You can then change to whatever synth you are using nvda with.

I agree generally about the problems of cross platform, but this is
not the case with kodi.

kodi, 17.0 disables unnone addons now, by default.

Matt: Press F12 once or twice until you hear two beeps (if Kodi does
this sound when it starts, ignore this last sentence). If it still
doesn't work when pressing the arrow keys, you may have SAPI5 as your
speech engine, and a voice which is not working as the selected voice.

I'd be wary of anything cross platform myself. Most of it tends to be

I've never tried this media software myself, didn't it used to be
called different name or did I dream that bit?

Hi, subject pretty much says it all.

I installed kodi, and the screen reader add on.

I'm getting no speech from it.

Anyone on this list use it, or happen to no of a list for other kodi
