Re: Setting global speech rate across various profiles
toggle quoted message Show quoted text
If you have a profile for a particular program, only settings you change while in that program are saved to the profile. So if I have a profile for Firefox and while in Firefox change from my default synthesizer of OneCore voices to eSpeak NG, anytime Firefox has focus, eSpeak NG will be used. If I am in Word (and don't have a profile for Word), and change the speech rate, that change will be reflected in Firefox (albeit using eSpeak NG in Firefox) because I hadn't set a speech rate in my Firefox profile.
So a profile for a program will use the default general profile, but then change any settings you have changed whilst in that program. That, in general, allows the situation the original poster wanted - to be able to NOT set the speech rate in one program but use the general profile's speech rate - the only restriction is if you change the speech rate while in a program with its own profile, the change will be made to THAT program's profile, not the general profile.
It's a bit tricky to explain, but I hope it makes sense!
