Re: Synthesizer issues? And searching for one.

The system used for demos is perhaps the poorest I've seen.  A demo driver is released.  It expires on a certain date and can't be used by anyone.  So anyone who downloads the demo driver has only as much time on the driver as there is for anyone else, no matter when they downloaded it.  You would expect that a demo would work for the downloader for a certain number of days, then stop or work for a certain amount of time each time you boot the computer, ten minutes, twenty minutes, then stop.  But this driver expires for everyone on the same day, and you can't run the voices as a demo until whenever a new demo driver is released.

Subject: [nvda] Synthesizer issues? And searching for one.

Hello all.

So... I'm trying to download the Nuance vocalizer synthesizer as listed
here: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/wiki/ExtraVoices

Just the Nuance one, not the Code Factory Eloquence/vocalizer one.

I've tried it on two computers, one on NVDA 2019.2 and one on NVDA
2019.1. Both tell me that the Vocalizer demo has expired even though
I've never even used it before.

Anyone know what's going on?

Also, I have been looking for another synthesizer lately. Ivona. Their
website simply redirects me to Amazon Polly, so I was wondering if I can
still download it somehow, or if I can download Polly, or if I'm
completely out of luck.

Thanks.

Hello,

This problem depends on the speech synthesizer you are using,
if you are reading a word consisting of multiple characters.

When reporting bugs in the NVDA Japanese version,
please file an issue to our repository.
You can write in either Japanese or English.

Best regards,

Mostly for the Japanese speakers! I have NVDA JP installed over top of
my original installation so I get the Japanese specific additions that
I need. But NVDA seems unable to process the difference between
kunyomi and onyomi properly. I remember when it used to be a lot
better than it is now. For example, the word
筆問
gets read as fudetoi which I am assming is just the reading of the
separate Kanji. But it should be read as
ひつもん

Any thoughts on this? It doesn't seem to matter what synthesizer I use. Thanks!



Equalizer APO

Hi!  Just had to reinstall windows so I’m pretty much starting from the ground up.  My Realtek HD system has an ok equalizer but I’ve heard good things about Equalizer APO.  I downloaded it but decided I’d wait to talk to you guysbefore I installed it.  Has anybody heard of it and does it work well with NVDA?  Thanks so much.

Re: ALVA 544 Satellite Traveller braille display with NVDA

I have a USB serial  converter here that comes with a driver disk. So this is a  thing, but I don't need it as the current computer still has serial ports apparently. If NVDA supported DoubleTalk LT I could still use it hahahaha.


Re: ALVA 544 Satellite Traveller braille display with NVDA

Oh, please post the link! I don't know what driver you're referring to and i don't think RS232 to USB cables come with drivers by standard...


Re: ALVA 544 Satellite Traveller braille display with NVDA

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi


the cable you mentioned that is serial to USb the 2 I brought come with a driver CD that also supports windows 10 that I am using now. It can be brought off ebay for under 10 bucks new zealand with free shipping. I can post a link later on today to one that I got otherwise in a shop it could be say 40 bucks new zealand then you might have to buy the converter.


the one I got was correct so no converter price on top.

Hello,

as I have tested successfully, you have 2 choyses.
the first is relatively expensive but very useful. if you can, borrow or buy also protocol converter from Optelec (support has ended) which introduce satellite displays to system as BC displays.
second is that you buy srs232 converter it means, if you have only usb ports on your pc, that you plug in usb side into pc and the other side of converter (serial called also rs232) connect with cable to alva's serial port. In this case you should use brltty.
remember: you must know on which com port a display is connected, so you can setup brltty. and if you use brltty, do not use usb connection on windows with this display.
hope it helps.

regards, Jožef

p.s. braille extender addon cannot help.

Re: stata with nvda

Marshall handheld Flax
 

I haven't tried this myself, but it appears that Stata is accessible if you use the "batch mode" described at https://www.stata.com/support/faqs/windows/batch-mode/ (probably option #2).

Basically, you would create a ".do" file containing whatever commands you wanted Stata to run. You create this file (e.g. "test1.do") with whatever text editor (even notepad) you please.

Then you issue a command at the cmd prompt (or run a simple .bat file), which will cause Stata to create an output logfile (e.g. "test1.log") with the output in plain text.  Again, you can use whatever text editor you like to view this output.  Then you can change your "test1.do" file and then rerun the command to do it again, etc.

Granted, you don't get all of the fancy UI features (e.g. command-completion, etc) -- but this should be entirely serviceable.

Re: SAPI4 speech engines.Microsoft

Curtis Delzer
 

Hi, I just re-installed NVDA, getting it from

http://www.ninite.com

v19.2, but the problem persists. I think I'll have to completely uninstall and install from scratch since all of my previous add-ons etc still work as though I had not uninstalled, :) so it is complete removal time and re-install time. I'd like to use some of these SAPI4 engines, rather than the SAPI5 Eloquence since other SAPI5 engines just don't speak quick enough for my needs using human voices. :)

Hello everyone.
So I recently downloaded the Python 3 compatible Eloquence addon. However, when I try and install it... nothing seems to happen. I've tried removing Ultra Eloquence, I've tried it with Ultra Eloquence still installed and Eloquence seems to just disappear.
Can anyone assist?
You can find the addon here  URL REDACTED
It is also listed here URL REDACTED
Thanks.

Re: Identifying capital letters

Not as far as I know.  I suggest such an option awhile ago but it hasn't been impleented, again, as far as I know.  I don't follow new features closely, though I read announcements about new versions.

Subject: [nvda] Identifying capital letters

Hi all,

I am well aware of the NVDA settings for indicating capital letters with beeps or saying "cap" before capitals and the pitch change to indicate capitls. What I really want to find a way to do is to use my preferred option (beep for capitals) when using read-all. The capital indications only seem to be performed when reading character-by-character.

I'm writing up my 6,000-word MA degree dissertation and my supervisor noticed there were a few instances where I'd added some text at the start of an existing  sentence and forgotten to turn the old first letter to lower case. The only way I could detect that would be by reading the 34,869 characters one by one and listening for the beep. That is not an option!

Is there any way to get the capital indication to be active during read-all?

Thanks,

Giles


Re: Identifying capital letters

 

Giles,

        Am I safe in presuming you're using MS-Word as your word processor?   If so we should open up a topic in the Chat Subgroup as there are some tricks you could possibly use with Word's own find and replace (whether you're replacing or not) function that would let you find embedded capitals mid-word or capitalized words mid-sentence.   It wouldn't be able to distinguish when proper names are involved mid-sentence, though.

Re: Identifying capital letters

 

Giles,

           As both a regular expression geek, and someone who's spent a lot of time in the halls of academe over the years, I would really suggest that you hire yourself a proofreader.   And I'm not saying this because you're blind, either.

           An experienced proofreader can pick up on all sorts of stuff, very quickly, without knowing anything much at all about the subject matter as that's not what their focus is.  If you are doing a master's thesis it is well worth the money to hire a proofreader if at all possible.

           The only way I have ever been able to proof my own material is if I set it aside after writing it for some time before revisiting it again, as just "knowing what I meant to put there" often results in my seeing what's not there, but instead what I had intended.   That's a luxury, time-wise, that one does not have with theses in general.
