Hi,

I have a new laptop which has windows 10 onit. It is so new that some
of the old synths I have used in the past on my old laptop won't even
install.

Now I guess I am in the market for a new synth with some new voices.

Which of those offered out there are good in response time and which
handle pronunciation of the most words correctly?

Please do not suggest ESpeak because I have tried it every release of
NVDA and I just can't deal with the voices it has.

I have been using MS David since getting this machine and it is painful
with the sluggish response times.

Thanks for any info. I hope to learn from others rather than having to
learn by painful experience.

Re: NVDA shortcuts and some questions about it!

Heaven Botma <ehlbotma@...>
 

Good Day Helga

To switch on NVDA press Alt+Ctrl+N. To switch it off again press
Insert+Q. It works very well on Windows 10, better than JAWS. For
more shortcut keys look at the Key commands document or the User
mannual which you can find in the help menu. Go to the NVDA menu by
pressing insert+N and go down to help, enter, and look for the
document you want.

Regards

Heaven

off NVDA guys? You know JAWS has alt plus control J in ordr to turn it on.
And to turnit off insert F4. So I was thinking nVDA maybe has the same
thing! So if it does, do you know what it is? If it does not have one, how
can I create one in ordr to accomplish that? Just wondring! On my computer i
have NVDA and JAWS 14, but I want to explore adn learn with NVDA guys! And
one last question, does NVDA works great with Windows 10 so far guys? Just
owndring! Whati your experience about it? I apologize for all these
questions! I look forward in hearing form you soon. I will really
appreciate any help tht you gusy can help me regarding this matter! Thanks

Hi,
When you enter on his link, arrow down the page until you hear Down load ctrl + l and press enter. The download dialog will come up. It is an MP3 file, Send Space is just the sharing service, like Drop Box. Have a great one.

Hello,


Here is a youtube to mp3 converter that is completely accessible:

http://www.youtube-mp3.org/



I record everything in MP4 because I show my screen for sighted viewers.
If there is anyone who would like to rip it into mp3, please go ahead
and post it.


There are also what is in the video in the description. It is so
people can just copy it and view it for later.

William Brandes emailed me an MP3 version at:

http://williambrandes.com/a_nvda/



It works great, just right-click on the link and click save.

Thanks,



Brandon Keith Biggs

Re: good, responsive synthesizers?

 

To be honest I think the code factory elequence is a lost cause.
if you want that synth better get the other version.
I myself am seriously thinking of getting the acapella addon because I heard it in some recordings and like it.

I have been using MS David since getting this machine and it is
painful with the sluggish response times.

Thanks for any info. I hope to learn from others rather than having

Hi, Arleen,

I used to sometimes use him in windows 7. He's part of the e-speak voices in NVDA.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

I have a new laptop which has windows 10 onit. It is so new that some
of the old synths I have used in the past on my old laptop won't even
install.

Now I guess I am in the market for a new synth with some new voices.

Which of those offered out there are good in response time and which
handle pronunciation of the most words correctly?

Please do not suggest ESpeak because I have tried it every release of
NVDA and I just can't deal with the voices it has.

I have been using MS David since getting this machine and it is

Official press release link to NVDA Tek Talk event on March 14th

 

Hi members of the NVDA community:

 

Here it is: the press release for the March 14th Tek Talk event is now available (please spread the word):

http://www.accessibleworld.org/announcements/1970

 

Additional items:

·         If you have last minute suggestions on NVDACon 2016 (sessions, schedule and so on), please talk to me (or NvDACon planning committee members) after Tek Talk.

·         Speakers: We have two or three slots open for lightning talks. If you are interested in giving a lightning (15 to 20 minute including Q&A) talk, please come and talk to me after Tek Talk.

·         Add-on users dinner: shortly after Tek Talk event, I’ll be hosting a “dinner” (a meeting) for users of add-ons I maintain. Currently these are GoldWave, Resource Monitor, StationPlaylist Studio and Windows 10 App Essentials. It’ll be held at the Tek Talk room and will foreshadow an add-ons event the organizers are thinking of having during NVDACon 2016 (and to set a precedence for add-on writers who’d like to meet with users of their add-on(s) during NvDACon).

·         NVDA 2016.2-dev: If Mick and Jamie permits, I’d like to give a short demo of what NV Access and contributors are up to in developing NVDA 2016.2 (this will happen after Tek Talk meeting if there is enough interest from the community).

 

Hope to see many of you at the Tek Talk event on the 14th (15th for some).

Cheers,

Joseph (event presenter)

Hello,


Here is a youtube to mp3 converter that is completely accessible:

http://www.youtube-mp3.org/



I record everything in MP4 because I show my screen for sighted viewers.
If there is anyone who would like to rip it into mp3, please go ahead
and post it.


There are also what is in the video in the description. It is so
people can just copy it and view it for later.

William Brandes emailed me an MP3 version at:

http://williambrandes.com/a_nvda/



It works great, just right-click on the link and click save.

Thanks,



Brandon Keith Biggs

Re: good, responsive synthesizers?

Good evening; Marv here. I am also using windows ten; I upgraded from windows 7. I was kind of surprised a synthesizer I had on 7 came to ten with me; it is an older one called microsoft speech synthesis 4. It has quite a few voices and for an old synthesizer, a lot of the voices are very clear in my opinion; good luck.
