I agree with you Bryan. When you demos of any type using speech weither its a podcast etc the no.1 rule should be to slow down your synth you use. I've emailed the good people of Cool Blind Tech with a friendly post suggesting them to do this. They never responded.

Ok, think have fixed those/the relevant errors - was my own mistake since used a regular expression search/replace to strip out line numbers when copied python script source from the gitHub page, but, think have now fixed all the missing number values on line endings.

Still not rendering too much to me - file menu, new, project, and it tells me it's the new project window, but, doesn't render any of the internal controls in it.

Re: Issues With Number Processing or Display On Creative Labs Web Page

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Group,


I almost never used Internet Explorer.  I tried this number issue on the referenced page with Internet Explorer 11 from Windows 8.1.  It still shows the same misrepresentation as does NVDA, but for some reason, a number of synthesizers pronounce it differently.  With punctuation turned to all, you hear a price which using individual character (left/right arrow keys) movement, shows the same for example, $16.99 reads $16999.  However, the voices/synthesizer say (spelling this out for clarification) dollars 16 ninety nine.


This is interesting and I'm afraid I don't have the technical knowledge to determine just what is happening.

I think what is happening is that decimal points are just not being

Ie if something says it is 30.00 it will say 3000.
if say something is 20000.44
you will get 1600044.
If the price seems to high, you may try to manually add in the points,
sometimes it works well enough sometimes but more often not.
Its like some things that are for old ie and other things who knows.
But the pages are not getting their points rendered right and have been

I am wondering if anyone else is having this problem.  When I visit the
below web page on the Creative Laqs site, I get oddities with the prices
for the various products.  For example, many of the prices are
ridiculously high such as $16999 for a set of small portable speakers.
When examining it closely, it seems these figures are deleting a decimal
point and replacing it with the first digit after the decimal point.  So
the above example should actually read $16.99.  This has happened a
number of times over the years.  Here is the page.

Re: espeak

Sharni-Lee Ward
 

GAH, I hate Speech Platform! No matter what I do, they won't pronounce
the "n" in my name! I have tried every possible combination of letters
in the speech dictionary to get it to say my name, but when I try it's
like "LOLNOPE still gonna mess it up". And Espeak, with the inflection
at max, is what I've been using for four years now. Admittedly, I stick
to the Linda voice, as it's the best female one in my opinion, and the
male ones sound a bit jarring on max inflection sometimes, but it's
still much better than Speech Platform or Mary TTS or Newance or Ivona.
I don't want flat voices, especially when reading fiction with NVDA. And
I don't use super-speed, but stick with the default rate of 30. Much
faster and it becomes unintelligible.

Re: Edward voice again

Gene
 

I find the American eloquence voice to be good.  I have listened to the Brittish voice and the accent souneds like someone trying to imitate a Brittish accent.  I therefore believe that the Brittish voice was developed by speakers of English who are not Brittish and who are giving their impression of how Brittish English sounds.  It doesn't sound as they represent. 
 
As an American, I very much enjoy hearing people speak Brittish English.  I used to listen to the BBC regularly.  But I find the Brittish voice annoying and inauthentic.  I therefore don't use it where I might use it off an on for variety and pleasure if it was an authentic representation.

on the screen since NVDA is not getting them either.

I like VS for the Intelisense support, which is very convinient in
comparason to Eclipse. You just start typing and get the list of
suggestions without dancing by pressing Control+Space as it happens
with Eclipse.

Dear Group,
I am currently working using Visual Studio 2015 - the latest update.
Since Microsoft introduced the Visual Studio Community edition, which
used to be Professional edition, we got a very nice IDE.
There is an NVDA add-on, which is installed by default that enhances
NVDA and VS interoperability.
The features are rather complete, but I found 2 issues:
1. When Intelisense with code suggestions popup is read, NVDA keeps
reading the number of items in a edit combo / list, which can get
very
annoying / flustrating.
--- What is the way using code to silence reading this attribute?
NVDA
has the opption of not reading item possition information. Can we
apply it to individual controls?

2. When leaving the previously mentioned Intelisense popup, NVDA
keeps
reading the window type / title, which is way too verbose when you
are
coding and keep jumping from the editor to Intelisense all the time.
--- Can we control this from the add-on code?

I am not familiar with Python on the daily basis, but can find
someone
to fix the code or do it myself if the changes are minor and can
simply follow the documentation and do little trial and error.

Thanks for any hints and tips,

Re: Visual Studio add-on.

Jacob Kruger
 

Ok, if look in the NVDA log, it's still throwing up errors, so seems there might be an issue with how extracted source for the devenv.py file to place in that path.

So, sorry, NVDA is still not rendering much to me in terms of VS.Net 2015, so can't help with anything relating to intellisense, etc.

Stay well

Therefore, I am in search of a simple and accessible PDF to Word

If possible, I would also like a software that could combine or merge

technique to quickly merge or compile the various chapter files in the
required order, that would simplify things too.
Thanks.

Well to me on the source the . is in fact an ^

$59^99

I have no idea why this should be there and why its not rendered as
something in Fire fox. I suspect the page template is quite old as it has no
useful headers or lists to help us out.

I've started this thread as I want to say something specific about this. To me at least this sounds very much like Eloquence UK English, so those out there that seem to have issues with the paid for version of that synth, might like to test this as a compromise.
Please lets not have more my synth is better than yours threads here. I'm merely stating an opinion, and it only reflects how my ears perceive it.
