Subject: [nvda] Microsoft one core voices

 

Running Win 10 1903 and latst released NVDA.

TTrying to add more one core voices.

So far what I have done is go to windows settings then time and language

then speech.  I wend to add a voice and selected English Canda.  I now

have English Canada, English British and English United States shown as

my voice options.  However when I go to NVDA settings under speech One

core voices I think I only have English United states voices.  What step

am I mkissing?

I'm not sure. I have all three of those voices here, and I just installed them in the same manner you describe. But, weirdly, the default is always the UK voice, because Windows does not have a Canada display language, so any website or app that wants to give me a "local experience" always gives me the English version. I don't know how we encourage Microsoft to learn that Canada is not British. I think that's the bigger problem.

When did you last update NVDA? This happened just a couple of days ago when I updated the addon for Win10.

Re: NVDA's OCR not working on Facebook.

John Isige
 

I have English US and English UK, and it's set to English US. And since
you say the linked image recognizes for you, there's definitely
something weird going on here. Huh, I wonder if it's an addon? Because
disabling addons actually makes it work. Not always, sometimes images
that supposedly contain text are blank, and recognition on the ones that
get recognized is sort of hit or miss, but highlighting the "image may
contain one person, text" for instance and hitting NVDA-r actually does
something most of the time. Now the question is, which addon? I feel a
long tedious process coming on tomorrow.

We've "fixed" that issue with OneCore voices now, so you don't need to adjust the rate in Windows settings anymore - you completely adjust the speech rate from NVDA's voice settings (NVDA+control+v) now just like with other synthesizers.

We also just added rate boost as an option for Windows OneCore in NVDA 2019.2, so if you looked in 2019.1 or earlier then you wouldn't have encountered the option for OneCore :)

Finally on all this, another thing not everyone may have encountered, from 2019.2 you can toggle rate boost (for OneCore and eSpeak NG) from the synth settings ring.  Press NVDA+control+left or right arrow to move between options, and NVDA+control+up or down arrow to change.  If using Laptop keyboard layout, add SHIFT to both of those commands.

Re: One Core voices

Because for me it is, with eSpeak, I see it, rate boost. But I might be getting mixed up with synths, OH well, I'll just change it under windows and time and date as it works there as well with 1 core.

Actually, I never saw it ther at all. I normally just go into the windows set up and boost that rate to 100, then I can keep the 1 core to about 60 and be good. No one but me can thenunderstand them.

Windows 10 App Essentials 19.11A emergency patch #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

 

At least two users reported that Windows 10 App Essentials 19.11 doesn’t work on their computers, and it turns out it is related to the fact that the add-on relies on NVDA 2019.2.1 changes. Just in case some of you didn’t upgrade to NVDA 2019.2.1 (which I highly recommend that you do upgrade), I’ll release version 19.11A of this add-on tonight. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: Problem with Excel

Quentin Christensen
 

Which version of Excel (and which version of NVDA) are you using?  As I mentioned in my other reply, there was an issue with Excel last year from memory where that would happen, but it should have been fixed.  If for some reason you are stuck on a version with that problem, the fix was to go into Excel's advanced options and toggle "allow editing in-cells".

You could also try NVDA's "COM Registration fixing tool" if you are getting "blank" and "unknown' in other places as well - press NVDA+N, then T, then down arrow to "COM registration fixing tool" and press ENTER.

Regards

Quentin.

Your post came through, so you've found how to post to the group :)

From the email address you subscribed to the group with, address an email to nvda@nvda.groups.io and it should reach us.

Hi,

I once tried to do that, but found it difficult to port the add-on to Python 3. Besides, Remote add-on patches speech functions that may have seen vast changes between 2019.2 and 2019.3, contributing to headaches.

Cheers,

In short, no. I thought Joseph was making a patch for Python 3 but I'd write to the developers about this. Especially since Python 3 is coming closer!

We also just added rate boost as an option for Windows OneCore in NVDA 2019.2, so if you looked in 2019.1 or earlier then you wouldn't have encountered the option for OneCore :)

Finally on all this, another thing not everyone may have encountered, from 2019.2 you can toggle rate boost (for OneCore and eSpeak NG) from the synth settings ring.  Press NVDA+control+left or right arrow to move between options, and NVDA+control+up or down arrow to change.  If using Laptop keyboard layout, add SHIFT to both of those commands.
