Re: AW: Is there seriously a possibility of "DOING AWAY WITH ESPEAK"? DOING AWAY WITH ESPEAK
Hi Alltoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I want to say two things to conclude this subject, as far as I'm concerned.
Firstly: The development of ESpeak was quite phenomenal and it is one of the better packages available.
Secondly: The day I was forced to start using NVDA, probably was the best thing that could have happened with me. To use the word "force" might sound as if I resisted, but I use it simply because I had no other option at that moment, but I wasn't unwilling for the change.
Thanks to everybody for all the trouble you take to develop assistive devices for us blindies. Furthermore, thanks for keeping us on the right tracks in our discussions. It isn't an easy task.

Please let us pause this discussion a bit - let us reflect and appreciate the long way NVDA has steadily traversed through for the past ten years to become what it is today, and to be capable of making the impact that it is making.
Once, we only had Sapi support, progressively ESpeak pre-integrated, and now availability of several commercial high-quality speech synthesizers as well. Let us cherish this diversity and variety that we have now access to for usage with NVDA, and respect the continued contributions that keep coming into NVDA.
Currently, NVDA must use ESpeak, as perhaps, it is the only free and open source text to speech engine viable. In case anyone is aware of others, please do bring it up during the Opener Forum User General Chat session of NVDACon International 2016, and maybe even during the Keynote Q & A section, so Mick and Jamie are enlightened of the same and they can make informed choices and synthesizer changes in NVDA for the future.
For the time being, I would like to sincerely request, as a fellow list member, that we focus on specifics and factual suggestions rather than somewhat abstract requests, implicitly this synth chat.
