Hello,
Before I explain the problem,
I would like to know if there is any person here using autohotkey?

I do.
What's the problem, and does it go away if you toggle Handle keys from other applications in NVDA's keyboard settings?

Good news. I removed win10 app essentials from my laptop and now remote works again.

I still need to know what to do with a remote.2.2 does not allow the user to connect or open options.

Hi


Just had a new update and where I thought it was 68 it must of been the versionh before.


It is on 68 of it and yes even though my status bar is checked it does not get reported down on the status area so some ting is broke.


it just says like no information.


But the menu for status bar is still under the menus mentioned before.

Re: Microsoft one core voices

George McCoy
 

You don't have to download languages to get the associated voices in windows 10 1903.

Press windows key plus i to open settings.

In the search box type ease of access narrator settings.

Down arrow once and press enter to enter Narrator settings.

Tab through the settings to a link labeled Add More voices and press enter.

Tab 6 times to the add voices button and click it.

You can enter a language in the search box or arrow through the list.

You are not installing the language, as far as I can determine, just the voices associated with it.

Select the language(s) you want with the space bar.

You can select as many as you like.

Tab once to the add button and click it to add the voices you selected.

The process takes a few minutes because the voices must be downloades and installed.

When the installations are complete, close settings.

The new voices will appear in the speech section of the NvDA settings dialog.

Microsoft Neural Voices with NVDA?

Casey Mathews
 

Just wondering how feasible it would be to get the new Voices from Microsoft working with NVDA? These voices are currently previewing with the Chromium based edge dev and Canary browsers. Microsoft seems to be improving these voices rapidly and I’d like to use them with NVDA. While they have an API for developers it appears they want money to use these voices. I’m not a developer though so could be wrong about this?

Any thoughts?

Thanks

 

Casey

 


Re: One core voices

Tyler Spivey
 

Yes. They match.

Right now I have Zira, David and Mark, the voices that come with US English.
Now let's say I want to add Canadian English.
I go to Time and Language, Speech, Add voices.
From there, I scroll down to English, Canada. It says not selected, so I hit space, and press the add button
Now I close settings and restart NVDA, and now also have Richard and Linda.

What problems are you having with these voices?
