Re: espeak n g no good it sneezes on some words

Hi Sharni,
LOL :D:D:D, outrageous may not be the most descriptive word for the
scenario. :) The reason for maintaining high listening speeds is to be
able to use the computer and navigate around faster, as there is a lot
of inevitable verbosity screen reader users have to encounter which is
not in the case of sighted people cursoring around, and to surmount
that slowdown, this is one of the techniques I deploy. As I said
previously, to read a book or an article very calmly or carefully, I
like to reduce my speech rate to as low as 20% with rate boost.

Hi Sukil

ok, I hear the anoying sound with rate set to 100%. It goes away
set to 99% and below. Again the anoying sound starts with rate boost
box checked at 19% and goes away at 18% and below. The anoying sound
is there all the way up from it's starting point at 19% with rate
boost box checked, well atleast up to 70%. I am not sure abuv 70%
with check box checked, I can't process beyond that point. It sounds
like it's still there. I am stuck using nvda with espeak set to about
40% with rate boost checked now. I feal like my computer is running
on malassis.

The nvda settings are default except for the rate boost and the rate
set high.

That would be greatly appriciated your filing this on github!

Thanks Pete

Hi Pete,

I'd suggest the same thing I suggested before. That is, file an issue
at <http:///>. If you don't have
an account on GitHub, I can do it for you.

Please describe the error in detail, as I use the same version of
eSpeak (with occassionally the English voice) with rate set to 30 or
40 with rate boost and I find no problems. Or perhaps I
missunderstood you, and you use different parameteres.

I all ways used the default nvda max english voice, I am
disappointed in the changes made to espeak in nvda I think starting
with nvda 2015 or may be as far back as 2014. Were the changes made
to espeak by nvda devel or the creator of espeak. I would like a
choice in nvda setup to be able to pick witch espeak to install. I
feal the need for speed quite freequently and to have that
fluttering sound in there when the check box for rate boost is
checked so I can get up to a 600 to 800 words per min is
disruptive. I am still trying to get used to it.
