Re: Other NVDA Voices?

Tom Behler <tombehler@...>
 

Jonathan:

 

Thanks for the codefactory info about the vocalizer and eloquence voices.

 

I checked on the web page you sent, and it says the price for the addd-on is 59 euros.

 

Siri tells me that this converts to $66.10.

 

So, what I now have to decide is whether the purchase would be worthwhile for me.

 

As of now, my intent is still to use NVDA as a backup, since my current Jaws Sma covers me through Jaws 20, but there is always room to re-think this.

 

Thanks very much for the help.

Hi Tom,

 

I was a JAWS user as well before installing  NVDA a few months ago, and had all intentions of using it as a back-up.  However, I quickly adopted it as my primary screen reader and hardly ever use JAWS now.

 

Codefactory has a page where you can purchase a Vocalizer and Elloquence addon.

Hello, everyone.

 

I have just joined the NVDA e-mail list, and am getting introduced to NVDA.

 

Actually, I use Jaws as my main screen reader, and simply want to have NVDA on board as a back up screen reader should Jaws fail, or be unusuable for certain applications.

 

Anyway, I have been told that alternative voices are available for NVDA. … Specifically, I have been told that the vocalizer female voice (similar to the one the iPhone uses), and Eloquence are available.

 

Can someone tell me where to find these voices?

 

Also, are they free, or must they be purchased?

 

Thanks for any info anyone can provide.

If you use the add on for Eloquence, it is poor quality because it has a lot of artifacts. 
 
Code factory has a SAPI5 version of Eloquence that works well.  Both are available as demos so you can try them.  The add on has eloquence and another set of voices.  I'm not sure if those are the other ones you asked about.  I assume you can get the other voices separately but I don't use them and I haven't paid much attention to them.

Hello Erik,


Will do. I know there's another one coming in a few days, which I've alpha tested last week, and works quite well in my opinion.


Let's keep in touch on this subject, and I hope I can be of help.

dialogue on pop up on microsoft download site issues

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

Yesterday I tried to download some office patches for a computer using the Microsoft download web site, but when I hit the download link nvda said dialogue, and thisdialogue only seemed to have a close button. With some difficulty I did use navaigationg mode to ascertain it had some checkboxes which seemed not to have any way to alter their state. This was in Firefox latest normal version 32 bit. I never did get the files to download, but on some other pages the dialogue is OK saying do you want to also download x or y etc with checkboxes, a bit like you get on the addobe site, so I'm at a loss. It seems that some parts of the microsoft download site is using inaccessible code of some sort? Flash maybe?
Anyone noticed this issue. If you banish this pop up it wont allow any downloading from the page.

Re: Keep reading area that is not the focus

 

Bruno,

         I have my master's in communication sciences and disorders, but on the speech-language pathology side of the aisle rather than audiology.  I recognize an audiogram when I see it!

         Are you trying to keep an eye on the level, tone frequency, or both?   They're both presented in that black box, but for all I know it may be reading the black box as a single field so that you'd get 30 decibels, 1000 hertz, 30 decibels [or however the speech synthesizer renders the abbreviations for decibel and hertz].

         This is definitely a custom display, at least based upon the pictures.  It doesn't look like it's being presented in a web browser, anyway, and this wouldn't be software that many men or women on the street would ever have reason to use.

You're quite welcome.   Having to dig into this sort of stuff for the first time in response to questions on groups like this one helps me to add arrows to my metaphorical quiver with regard to specific screen readers.   That never hurts me, either (though I have a tendency to forget what I've learned if I don't use it.  The old "use it or lose it" principle, particularly for novel information).
