Re: Code factory Eloquence
How you get around that depends on the screen-reader being used. I haven’t used JAWS enough in years to describe how you would get around the problem.
In NVDA, if you issue the command control NVDA key s, you will be in the select synthesizer dialog. that is, hold the NVDA key and control and type s while doing so. That opens the select synthesizer dialog.
Do this when you have the speech working you want. Then see what is available and what you want to switch to. memorize how often you up or down arrow to the emergency synthesizer you want to use and press enter to make it active. In that way, you can get speech back.
You will then want to go into the speech parameters dialog, NVDA key control v, and adjust speech parameters such as rate.
Tab around and see how the pitch for capital adjustment is set. Often, the adjustment produces very unpleasant sound when typing or reading a capital letter when spelling a word. To avoid this, type something low like 6 or 7 in the edit field. You can always raise it.
what is worse is that until you can get a different speech working you can't do anything because no matter what key you press you get that message and nothing else.
