Re: NVDA, JAWS, compared to Narrator

 

To be honest, the voices ms use are better quality than all their other voices, yeah they have their limits but still.

I have found that some of the vocaliser voices have bad bits to so each voice has their issues.

Espeak for example for a high quality traditional voice is a bunch of crap but its an officiant voice none the less and while this rysen can process normal voices of which I now own a couple code factory packs of  well.

Yes, you can get a few of the Windows 10 voices, but only on Windows Vista and above.

For some reason, probably compatability reasons, there are two speech systems going on in Windows 10. OneCore has all the new voices, and Sapi5 has just the "desktop" voices. Why they give us mobile voices on desktop, when the desktop voices sound just as bad, I don't know. Then again, I'm used to the great quality voices that Apple ships, Alex and Fred and the Siri voices, so I have to just lower myself to this level I suppose. Hopefully Microsoft takes in feedback and improves these voices' quality, and not just ask again and again what we want, lol.

Those three voices come with every installation of Windows 10 because
they're built into Narrator. However, the rest of the One Core voices
have to be installed either through Narrator's "add more voices"
dialogue or through language settings within Windows. Many of the One
Core voices in non-American English and other languages sound as good
as Vocalizer Expressive.

Gene,

To admonish means to warn or to reprimand firmly. This most recent message definitely sounds like a reprimand to me and it's not the first message you've written where you have displayed a patronizing, condescending tone. When people tell you this you insist that you are right and that they are wrong and not seeing things clearly or that, in this case, they're not defining terms based on your own dictionary definition. No doubt you will be tempted to spend the next five or ten minutes firing off a response indicating why I, in fact, am wrong and why you are totally justified in your behavior. Please don't bother because I won't read it. Mailing lists should be a safe haven for people to ask any question they might have and know that they will receive a charitable response. At times you give mailing lists like this a bad name and I'm frankly sick of it. When someone asks a question it doesn't matter what they may or may not assume. If they knew everything they wouldn't be asking questions on this list. Why not use your knowledge to just provide a charitable response rather than reprimanding and chastising them.

Yes.  

1. Hit CTRL+SHIFT+B to bring up the Bookmarks Manager
2. Hit ALT+I,E, a few seconds after which an Export Bookmarks to a File dialog appears allowing you to name the file, if you want other than bookmarks.html, and to navigate to wherever you wish to save it.

This method exports all your bookmarks, with their folder hierarchy preserved, for backup or import into another web browser.

Press ctrl shift b to show all bookmarks.

Oh, puhleeeze.  There isn't a browser in existence that doesn't allow you to set, and later edit your bookmark names.  This is just common sense.

CTRL+SHIFT+O brings up the Chrome Bookmarks Manager and you can easily change the current names assigned.  Bringing up the context menu in Bookmarks Manager when you're sitting on a bookmark gives Edit as the first choice.  You can set the name to anything you wish at creation time right in the edit box presented and it's the first thing you land on.

I noticed when I made the selection for a $30.00 one time payment the next page in the process changed it to 30,00 which I assume would have been 30,000 so Iwent to the edit box where you can enter the amount you want.

You should try a Firefox add-on called Navigational Sounds, or something like that. Actually, there's certainly more than just 1 add-on to do it to you.
Also you would be amazed how an only add-on allows us customizing things the way we like them.

Hi!
Firefox certainly works well with NVDA, I've used it 99.9% of the time
for several years now: I switched to it when I had a faulty version of
Internet Explorer, and haven't looked back. I haven't even opened IE
for years: I have Google Chrome as a backup web browser, although I
don't use it very much, but it's worked well with NVDA on the rare
occasions I've used it. Good to still have a choice, even on Windows 7
which I still have, now that IE is dying!
Havingg tried out Firefox,, Chrome, Edge and even Opera, I find myself returning to good old IE because off two important factors for me: favorites organization and system sounds. IE is they only browser I've found where I can assign sounds to all sorts of navigation functions, most importantly, link activation, page loads and f previous/next page movement.. In terms of favorites, Chrome doesn't even allow you to edit the bookmark name, let alone store it in a directory, although it does maintain Internet Explorer directory structures during importation.
FFor the life of me, I can't figure out how to access Chromes notification; I've tried alt+shift+A and alt+A, but neither actually speak the notification area to activate it. Chrome doesn't have as many settings as Internet Explorerr, such as when history is cleared,, and whether SSL is used.
Moreover, I say all this with the caveat that I am far from perfect and may not have discovered features in Chrome or Firefox that I could use effectively. If anyone knows how to edit favorite names, store them in directories and assign system sounds to browser navigations in Chrome, Firefox or Edge, please do enlighten me.
ManBut till then, although I'll always experiment with other browsers, Internet Explorer remains my reliable default.

Re: Codefactory vocalizer and NVDA

Quentin Christensen
 

It really depends on which version of Word you are using as to the exact behaviour with spell check.  Spell check in Word 365 works quite well.  There are specific places in Word 2013 / 2016 where object navigation gives you extra information, although in any case, I don't think there is anything particularly specific to any given synthesizer?

Some synthesizers take it upon themselves to interpret some strings, for instance dr as Doctor (or drive) or st as street (or saint), but those things won't be specific to spell check.

Question About Three Document Formatting Options

David Goldfield
 

Hello.

I'm going to be delivering a presentation on installing and configuring NVDA and I'm asking for clarification regarding the following settings.


1. What is the emphasis text toggle used for?

2. What needs to be done to allow the speak line numbers check box to work as expected?

3. The last document setting, Report Formatting Changes Under the Cursor, seems to produce identical behavior, regardless of the state of this check box. What conditions need to be present in order for this toggle to produce different results?

Many thanks.

yeah, David's not bad, but he sounds like he's breathing. Kind of creepy. LOL!

I like the Austtralian female voice I’m using. Can’t think of her name though. Anyway, she’s really responsive. I use her with NVDA. For Narrator I use a male voice coalled Microsoft David.

I really like OneCore Zira, but I like her best using NVDA. She reads differently--more slowly or something--in Narrator. I mean, when you do the read-to-end command in NVDA, she reads normally, but no matter how fast you have her going in Narrator, reading to end has her reading more--I don't know, monotone maybe?--than she does in NVDA. I've had to add some extra pronunciations in the voice dictionary, but other than that, I really like that voice! It's very clear and I like that.

You might like to try the new Microsoft voices. They're pretty good.

Agreed.  I particularly like the OneCore voices you get if you install additional languages (all English dialects, in my case).  They sound virtually human.
