need the beta version of dictation bridge for it to work on
the latest version of NVDA. It works quite well.
I tried that 3 years ago and didn’t get any
luck with it. Their used to be a plugin called Dictation
Bridge but it doesn’t seem to work with NVDA 2020 or later.
Use NVDA to help train Speech
I am trying to
help someone start using a Windows computer with
speech input and audio output. They has lost
ability to read owing to macular degeneration. The
main applications are MS Word, Outlook, Edge and
One snag would seem to be training the
speech recognition program. I remember using Dragon
about 10 years ago and there was a lengthy training
that required reading text to the microphone.
Windows Speech Recognition (WSR) also has training
that requires reading text. WSR depends on the user
correcting mistakes properly. I hope the read back
function of NVDA will help for that.
Has anyone used NVDA to read out the
training text so the user can repeat it verbally to
the speech recognition program (WSR)? I expect this
would only work with ear phones on.
appreciate information about forums that discuss
integration of WSR and NVDA to use Windows Office
products. I am aware of Knowbrainer.
Thanks. This is a great forum!
