Re: Excerpt from Espeak NG list

This is not done in English.  I've never heard anything even remotely like what is being stated as being in spoken, rather than written English. 
 
If the claim is being made as reported in the below message, it is not partly or marginally incorrect, it is completely incorrect.  In two words like can get, the n is held and the g is smoothly spoken at the instant the n sound is ended.  There is no additional g nor even a hint of one.  And that's the way things are generally.

Now I'm not getting at anyone here, but although the message below is
related to a very new incarnation of the synth, it kind of makes the point
made in a previous thread on here about the changes being made to Espeak
which do not sit well with users.
 Here is the post...
 I have no axe to grind here, except that it has been my experience too that
some pronunciations are dismissed as OK when they are not.

[espeak-ng:master] New Issue Created by Trix-Maiden:
#443 Velarisation in Espeak NG is too pronounced
I've brought this up before as well, but I want to do so again here, in less
abrasive language.
The current way Espeak ng processes velarisation puts too much emphasis on
it. Any word ending with an "N" that precedes one starting with a hard "g"
or "c" sounds as if there is an extra "g" at the end of it before the next
word begins. "Ing case", "wung game" "cang get", etc.
The last time I brought up this issue, I was told this is how these words
sound when spoken by humans, but I would disagree. Not to say this doesn't
happen, but it isn't lingered over the way it is in the current release of
Espeak ng. In previous versions, the transitions between these words sounded
natural enough to my ears, and this version over-emphasises the velarisation
to the point of it being unnatural.
(Note: I do not type "one" like that, but I had to alter spellings to
simulate the pronunciation issue as clearly as possible to another blind
person.)

Things I've moaned about like offen instead of often keep coming back as
well, now this  person knows the right term to use for the issue they are
raising but mnay of us would not know how to actually describe it, and I
feel that is part of the issue when reporting oddities and getting ehem
fixed.
 Just saying, and I do hope somebody who understands such things can pass on
some of the comments I've seen on here to the right people to get them put
back as they were originally. Thanks and have a nice day to all.

It would help to read the follow up where I have modified it so it no longer does that between words. Both pronunciation styles are equally valid and I prefer the change I made, but I respect that the change was not well supported (or at least not by the vocal majority).

Everything you and others have raised I have fixed or tried to fix, yet you still complain in an unconstructive way (like your post to the NVDA developers list). Pointing out issues is fine. Being constructively critical is fine (like Tyler Spivey's comments in another thread).

Also bear in mind that I and others are doing this in our spare time for free.

The default choice in that combo box is user default.  this suggests that the computer itself is set to the wrong language.  This should be checked because if it isn't, it will cause problems.  I suspect, though I don't know this, that other programs will use the wrong language and I suspect Narrator will as well.

Re: In-Process 29th March 2018 is out including NVDA 2018.1.1

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

Yes, but the actual info on the full path to the rc which is up of 2018.1.1 is not given and the RC is only downloaded from the rc on the users machine if it exist,
The full release seems not to be up yet, which is OK if its on rc2 now. However in this list there is usually some announcement about it and there has not been from the emails I've got at any rate.
I have posted a link to my dropbox version of the rc2 for those who want it. I just wondered whose job it was to post that the new release or rc is in fact up and where to find it?

Re: Chrome Browser

Perhaps I should have said turning off speech is a two stroke command.  Pressing NVDA key and then s might be considered two strokes and turning speech on without the add on might be a three stroke command.  I'm not sure just what counts as a stroke.  Whatever the case, the commands are very short and easy to execute.

Turning off speech with NVDA key s is a very easy one stroke command.  turning it on again is a two stroke command or, if you use the add on, a one stroke command.  My point isn't that there is no way to turn suggestions off, I assume there is.  My point is that unless or until the way this is done is found in whatever program is being used, it is very easy to stop such speech.

How fast are you typing?  If you either type quickly or turn off speech, you
won't hear anything.  You likely know this but do you know that anytime you
want to interrupt speech, you can just keep typing anywhere?  You will
probably get a solution but I'm discussing this as a general principle.  I
never bother with such settings because I type fast enough that I don't hear
such information but if I ever start to hear it, maybe because I'm typing

I'm not really sure what you mean here.
Aware you saying that its set to chinese, and trying to read English as if it were Chinese?
The language setting must have been tweaked for this. Look in the preferences and see what its actually set to. Normally its system default, which is usually what it says it is, the language windows uses.

There are three entries for each command.

There is the Windows command, the Mac command, and then the action that it activates.

Here you go, right below!

What are hotkeys and how do I use them in Skype?

Keyboard shortcuts are specific combinations of two or more keys on your keyboard. They make it easier and faster for you to use commands that you would otherwise have to access via the menus. You can use keyboard shortcuts to easily quit Skype, send a file, copy text and a lot more.

Re: Chrome Browser

John Isige
 

Has anybody solved this issue with chrome? I have every predictive thing turned off, but when I start typing in the address bar, I hear stuff like, suppose I'm typing in mandolin cafe. I type an m, I hear "m andolessons dot com", I type an 'a' and then maybe it thinks I mean something else so I hear "mathmaze dot com selected instead", and so on. It's really pretty annoying, particularly since I don't want it to do that. Just let me type a URL and be done with it. Quit trying to figure out where I might want to go, like I told you to.

Yes, it works well, and Chrome is so much faster than other browsers. It has become my go to browser.

Is the Chrome browser accessible with NVDA? Is it worth trying?

Hello,
I find that it is, although it tends to fluctuate as new versions are released. It is very snappy and definitely worth a try.
Cheers Perry

I generally don't comment much on subject lines but I'm taking improper changing of subject lines increasingly seriously. 
Please do not change subject lines unless the subject has changed.  It didn't change.  You are still talking about joining a list.  Not changing subject lines when the subject hasn't changed is basic and important list courtesey.

Hi, everyone,

 

I figured out what happened. The confirmation message went to my spam folder so I went to the gmail site and told it that that message isn't spam.
