Regarding IVONA, you can buy a SAPI5 version or a NVDA version.

 

If you can't find them, please say...

Thanks a bunch Jaffar.  I appreciate it.

I, too, am interested in purchasing IVONA voices. I've used them with System Access, and they're great. But I didn't think they were available for use with NVDA. So, if someone could provide links, I'd be grateful.

Re: Section Symbol not reading

Quentin Christensen
 

Rae,

Mine was set to Level: All.  What that means is it will ONLY get read when the symbol level is set to All.  NVDA+P moves between Symbol levels:
None: No symbols are read
Some: Very common symbols such as % and # are read.
Most: Most symbols are read.
All: Every symbol is read.

So, to have it read at more punctuation levels, set it to something higher on that list - some, for instance.

Regards

Quentin.

Quentin,
I'm using the symbol for the word section §. I deal with documents that reference legislation. For example a document (Word, Powerpoint, PDF, etc) says "Article 6, § 3351.4."

I've looked in the punctuation formatting and I can see the symbol in there and have it set to read it always. But it doesn't. It skips the symbol all together. 

Thanks,

 

Rae

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.

Hi.  Press Control+escape keys.  You'll land on the search box.  Tab twice and you'll see the list of applications on your pc.  It will be something like "All Apps List: Recently added grouping".  Arrow down 3 times and you will hear the following: "Configuration editor, new", one more arrow down and you will hear "Configurator, new", and the next arrow down will give you "BenchMark, new".  Assuming that Equalizer Apos is the most recent of your installation, then you can simply choose one of these to work with it.  If not, just press the first letters of the list above and you should get there.  For simpler access, you might want to send anyone of those to your desktop as a shortcut.  Cheers!

Re: helping a friend with some strange behavior in Mozilla Thunderbird

 

Go to the "advanced" tab under display. Tab a couple times, and you will see the option as to how to open messages. The second radio button is the one that should be checked. It will open messages in their own window. Hope that helps.

Re: Identifying capital letters

 

Giles,

            Yes, that regex pattern is definitely "the bomb" for finding the sort of issue you wish to find.  It took me a while to parse it apart to understand it in its entirety; I'm a bit rusty these days.   Now that Windows 10 has PowerShell, you could even use it in conjunction with the grep (short for get regular expression and print) command to have specific lines where the issue is found produced so that you can easily search for those lines.   The thing I don't know is whether you can actually run grep against a .docx document or if you'd need to save a plain text or rich text format version of the file for processing.

             In any case, even if there is an intermediate step, you can use this method to quickly identify the vast majority of instances of uncapitalized sentence starts, capital letters embedded inside words, or capital letters on words within sentences where they'd typically not be.

They are actually using the same extension but for some reason, when downloaded, they arrive with a zip extension.  Change the extension to the usual one and install them in the usual way.

Re: Identifying capital letters

Giles Turnbull
 

I agree Brian ... mind you my dissertation is in poetry so doesn't necessarily folow the same grammar rules as prose. I do have a friendly proof reader and will be running it by her before submission, but I wanted to try to iron out those errant capitals if I could.

The regular expression search is useable, since I know when it flags capitals that are not preceded by a full stop whether it is corect to do so :)
