Re: soft-voice and objPad comments

Use the nvda key + letter N to get into the preferences of NVDA, then go
down to tools, a sub menu will appear, then go down to manage add ons
then press the enter key.

When you go into that section it will tell you what add ons you have
installed, but you will be looking for a button called get add ons then
press the enter key.

your browser will open to the place where the add ons are for the
project. Go down to the one that was mentioned you should be able to
jump down by headings then there will be a link to the page where it is.
Locate the add on there and either install it from there which i think
if i remember well can be done or download it to your computer then
install it from there.

There are tutorials on how to do it if you have not done it before.

the info for the add on can be found on the page on how to use it or if
you do it through the manage add ons section either help or the one
after it most of them now will take you up to that page when pressed on.

hope this helps.

Subject: [nvda] soft-voice and objPad comments

Upon using objPad for a bit I can say that it is excellent at what it
does! I wanted a jaws-like-cursor for NVDA? I got one and in fact its so
awesome because it takes the old jaws cursor along with the jaws touch
cursor and rolls them into one yet its even easier to use! I really
really like objPad and will be telling everyone about it. And I may have
found another free synthesizer addon for NVDA for all of us to use. For
personal use only, not commercial use... It is called soft-voice and it
sounds similar to eloquence but better than eSpeak. I have one or two
more things to check out with the soft-voice tts makers but once I do
and everything is go then I'll let all of you know the final verdict on
soft-voice tts. I can tell you that it sounds a bit like eloquence but
it only supports english and spanish languages. and that it has a bunch
of interesting novelty voices along with the normal voices and its very
small and fast and responsive. I will not post it here though until I'm
certain its fine with the authors.

Check out my website for nvda tutorials and other blindness related
material at Regardless of where you
are in New Zealand if you are near one of the APNK sites you can use a
copy of the NVDA screen reader on one of their computers. To find out
