Re: Espeak in a sapi5 guise?

David Mellor
 

I'm still using it as a SAPI5 voice. I don't know if this gets updated with
each NVDA update so it might be quite an old one.
It's not completely stable. It sometimes breaks and Windows 7 automatically
changes the default SAPI voice to Microsoft Mary which is pretty aweful.
It takes just a few seconds to set it back to the desired eSpeak voice once
you've got the technique sorted.

Glad you were able to get on board. I admit I mostly became a member because of the movie vault, but they do seem to sell a good amount of useful stuff.

Hi, everyone,

 

Just want to admit that I was wrong about the blind mice megamall site not being accessible. I just became a member. To the person who said that the site is not accessible, you have to look at the form in browse mode. Then you can fill it out. I looked at the site in both firefox and internet explorer. This is a great lesson to learn for all of us--not to jump to conclusions.

I actually found the audio tutorial, and it told me that I can't do
this anyway, because it's apparently only going to use one of the
synthesizers already in the package, so it looks as if I wouldn't be
able to use my TripleTalk in this setting.

Thanks for sure,

Agreed, Gene. I think unless we start seeing more than 1 report of

something about his setup that's causing it.

Re: Question about Dictation Bridge

Terrie Terlau <terrieter@...>
 

Hi Pranav,
Thank you for this information. I am working with someone who is blind and
can't use a keyboard, and I have a few more questions. Do you know if there
is documentation showing how much control of the PC you get with TextBridge
and Dragon 15? Can Dragon open applications such as email and Word? Can you
move through a list of emails or files in a folder with Dragon commands?
If this info is in a document, where might I find it?
Thanks for any help you can give.
Warm regards,
Terrie Terlau

Hi Terrie,

We tested dictationBridge with dragon individual professional. It works well
with that version of Dragon which is Dragon 15. You can try a lower version
such as Dragon 14.

You could also give windows speech-recognition a try but I do not know how
well it works on Windows 7.
Note:
I am not sure about Dragon 15 either. If however you can get either WSR or
Dragon to work then dictationBridge will work. It does not have operating
system limitations.

Hi, everyone,



Just want to admit that I was wrong about the blind mice megamall site not
being accessible. I just became a member. To the person who said that the
site is not accessible, you have to look at the form in browse mode. Then
you can fill it out. I looked at the site in both firefox and internet
explorer. This is a great lesson to learn for all of us--not to jump to
