I doubt it, if its not giving you the choices then I'd suggest all the voices are going to be paid for, and in any case with nvda changing as fast as it is, you are best to use the official add ons and drivers for things. You should get support and hopefully not some dodgy hacked illegal code that might trash the computer!

Hi all.

Please note, I am going away for a couple weeks from today so don't bother responding I will have a lot to deal with in here when I get back.

But for what its worth, for all those waiting, because of the leaked version out there winamp has gone to 5.58 beta and its out.

Note this is the last ever version of winamp that may be accessible.

Its the last of the old winamp project and that at least indicates to me that everything will be new.

On the up side this version as well as fixing some of the issues, and having no plugin errors is now the last ever work done with aol/nullsoft and brings the version up to its gracefull end.

Even if this is the last accessible version ever, even if after this winamp sucks, at least we have everything wanamp was before the change over.

For myself I really hope that winamp 6 lives up to its name and rocks even more.




Re: SAPI-specific settings not saving when changing to another voice

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

OK What seems to be happening is this. The settings are saved when you save settings, but only for the actual voice in Sappi 5. If you use a different voice it seems like the local settings for that voice are replaced by a default. Then if you come back to the old voice once again they are set at the default. However, most of the time if you do not allow save on exit, the old voice you set will be loaded back on a restart with the parameters you set. So. Moral is, do not change the sappi 5 settings by moving the voice then allow nvda to save settings or it will overwrite the old ones.

I suppose Microsoft's Sappi drivers are the culprits here, since only one set of parameters seems to be allowed for every single voice and this cannot be altered from the nvda dialogue once its been reset. and of course that default is then rewritten to nvda if you exit the screenreader with save settings on.
I have no idea if this is fixable by nvda but I'm almost certain I encountered this in Dolphin Supernove when I used it. It had a separate dialogue where you set each individual voice as in that much like the shark different voices could be defined for menus reading etc.
Its a bit awkward when more than one system is attempting to be king of the mountain!

Yes. Mine do tend to stick between restarts, but if I change the voice for the active SAPI 4 or SAPI 5 synthesizer, speech rate and volume do not stick.

For instance, changing to SAPI 5, then using NVDA+CTRL+left to go to voice, then using NVDA+CTRL+down to change between the voices , all my settings revert to default values.

I've never understood the reason. I don't really use SAPI a lot, but I'd like those options to stick when I do.

Re: Speaking numbers

Jonathan COHN
 

Hello Peter,

This should be a functionality of the voice you are using. Though I would expect you could put in a regular expression in the dictionary to find digit comma digit and remove the comma. I believe the base regular expression "\d,\d" is the regular expression that would match a single digit a comma and another single digit. In order to get this regular expression to just remove the comma, you would need to appropriately bracket the \d  and then use appropriate code in the replace field to retrieve the bracketed item. I don't know the intricacies of Python regular expressions, so I am not sure how to bracket the items and if the replace field would be \1\2 or \2\3 but I am sure somebody on this list knows.

I should have said object review or screen review?  I just tested and you must be in object review for the command to work to read the entire document.  If you are in screen review, just the current screen will be read.

There is another way you may be able to listen to the file even if other
suggestions don't work.  Use the command numpad plus.  There are three keys
on the last up and down column of the numpad.  the top one is a regular size
key.  The second one is a long key and the third is another long key.  You
want the second key, the first long one from the top rightmost column of the
numpad.  At the beginning of the file, press that key.  Reading should start
at the beginning and continue.  If you want or need to stop, pay careful
attention to where you are stopping.  Remember a number of words in their
correct order.  Write them down if you aren't sure you will remember them.
You will have to find those words, using the Notepad search command control
f.  I am not explaining all you need to know to use the search.  If you
listen to the file in this way, the review position will change but it
appears it is not exactly where you stopped reading.  If you move to the
exact position where you stop in terms of where the actual cursor is, you
can press the key you pressed before and reading will start from where you
left off.

The numpad 2 key is for read current character when used by itself.  When
used with numpad insert It moves you into a navigator object inside of the
one you are in.  for example, if you are in an object that says Wordpad
window but you aren't in the actual window, that command will move the
navigator review into the window.  these are NVDA commands.  They aren't

Re: Say all

And that's important.  It moves the review cursor.  It doesn't move the application cursor so if you stop reading, the only way to resume reading where you left off is to move the application cursor, and thus the review cursor to where you want to start reading again.  Then you can use numpad plus to resume reading where you want to resume.

Sorry, meant numpad +, - "Reads from the review cursor up to end of

As in, sounded almost like that was what happening.

Re: NVDA with Links and Attachments Continued

Gene
 

But I really doubt that the less than and greater than signs turn the text in between into a link.  It may do something like allow some e-mail programs to work with it as a link when you press enter on it but I doubt it looks like a link when someone is typing a message.  Perhaps someone who visually sees such links when composing will comment.  One question is whether the links appear twice in the message under composition or only after being sent in the copy to the recipient or in the sent messages folder and whether the link is shown as just text or in some way as a link in the message under composition.
 
Also, I don't think this has anything to do with whether the message is written as plain text or HTML.  Again, someone who has visually seen both may wish to comment.  My guess is that, when a message is sent, some e-mail clients place the less than and greater sign around the second copy of the link so that all clients can work with the link.  Just as an e-mail address has a less than and greater sign surrounding it, I suspect the principle is the same.

Often if you look at emails in html in a text reader, in addition to any
html you often see links and email addresses twice, ie once in text and
again surrounded by greater than and less than characters, and on email
addresses with mailto inside the  greater than lesser than areas.
 I think its all down to how you send the text. In my email client  it is
supposed to send in plain text, but Microsoft in their infinite wisdom seem
to manage to make links into links when its sent for those reading in html.
Not all clients work this way but many can be set up that way in settings.

Proofreading a message is not the same as receiving a message.  Proofreading
a message being composed will usually not show links as links, as far as I
know.  As far as I know, this is JAWS doing what a screen-reader shouldn't
do, pretending something is being shown as a link when it isn't and is just
text as far as a sighted person reading a message they are composing is
concerned.  But if I'm wrong, I hope to be corrected.  I've never checked
this.  But JAWS didn't used to announce link and NVDA doesn't.

If someone receives a message from you and you have written a link properly,
www.rest of link or http://www.rest of link, if that person doesn't see the
structure as a linkk, that's their problem.  Maybe they are reading mail as
plain text and maybe their e-mail program doesn't show mail as a link in
plain text.

Hello Everyone,

Gene, I understand what you are saying about links and will send
myself a test message. However, If I copy and paste a YouTube link, or
a specified URL is typed in an email, as I proof-read my email,
oftentimes the word 'link' will not be heard with the URL. In some
cases, people have told me that the URL did not get received by them
as a link, only the URL itself. Moreover, the same is observed to
occur on Facebook.
Test:

Re: SAPI-specific settings not saving when changing to another voice

Yess I've noticed this too. I can relaunch nvda and find it reverts to some arbitrary setting from the past. I do not use these voices enough to actually troubleshoot it.
I always suspected I'd just not saved the settings somewhere.

Hi,

I have always wondered why this is.

When I am using SAPI 4 and SAPI 5 voices, the speech rate and volume revert whenever I use the ring of synthesizer speech settings and change to another voice. This is the same when I do this using the Speech category in the NVDA settings dialog CTRL+NVDA+V.

What is the reason for that? It seems to be the only synthesizer with that behavior that I’ve seen.

Thanks!

Have you isolated it to one voice or all their voices?
I would just tell them how it is and they should be able to test it, and if they have a driver issue or think nvda is in need of a change the ball is in their court. I'd also say that if it will not do as you wanted it, then maybe they should refund your money and remove the registration for the dodgy voices.

Good morning,

Thanks for all the suggestions, I am very grateful to all those who answered.

After further testing, I believe those who said it was a synthesizer thing were right in this case. Here are my findings:

I double checked and Word Wrap was selected in Notepad.
I tried Say All once more and the reading stopped after the first three or four lines again.
I asked it to spell the first line as suggested, with insert+up arrow twice quickly, and it only reported the first character of the first line.
I tried the same thing with two other different files, same behaviour.
I opened a web page and asked it to spell a line, same behaviour.
For all these tests I've used the Code Factory vocalizer synth, the one that I had intended to use for book reading.
Now, as soon as I switched to Eloquence, NVDA went back to behaving normally. Both "say all" and "spell the line" work perfectly now, in Notepad, Word, and Chrome.

Therefore, I have another question if you don't mind:

Should I send an e-mail to CF about this? How can I describe the problem to them? I am not a programmer, so I fear my description won't be detailed enough, and I might not be able to give them the necessary elements.

Many thanks once more, and a nice end of the week to everyone.

Vlad.
