Re: Using Open audible

Dale Leavens
 

So are you using Open Audio to convert your books now?

Out of interest, which player do you use to listen to your MP3 books?

Personally I don’t enjoy playing about with computers and transferring and all that jazz so it has been probably a year now or more since I have made any use of my computer for anything.

Cheers.

Hi Dale,

 

I convert audibole books so I can play them on a basic mp3 player.

I do not want to be chained to my pc to read a book.

I do not want to  have to buy a smart phone to listen to a book.

It’s that simple.

I paid for the  book. I read it where when  and how I choose.

Ron,

 

My bad!  When I went to the Open Audio Web Site there was no mention of any of this.  I couldn’t figure out why it was promoted as free while having a subscription option.

 

It turns out to be a way of piroting Audible books by converting them to MP3 format where they can be listened to by anyone.

 

If one has an Audible account and the Audible player I don’t understand the need for Open Audio unless to create files to distribute to others.

 

Admittedly the Audible App is a little peculiar but it does work well and although there isn’t a setting to share with family that I could find in the Canadian version of Audible I wrote to. Them about that and somehow they managed to connect my wife’s phone and our iPod to my account so all my Audible books are available on all three devices

 

My appologies, that was all my misunderstanding.

 

Cheers.

Hello all,

 

Under Windows 10 and within outlook, if I’m using Jaws ad I’m displaying the name of one of a list of folders, it may say something like: “Inbox – 10 unread items”. Is there a way to get NVDA to say that? I find it immensely useful when spring-cleaning folders, particularly the inbox.

Hi Luke


I know that short cut worked on skype 7 but can not recall it after that There are other versions of skype like the app version found on a windows 10 machine you mostly tab fort that one and the desk top version as well which is 8.4 I think it is.


I use the alt + 1 key I think it is and alt + 2 keys etc mostly and quick navigation keys in this version. It is like the version you are using?

According to the NVDA user guide, the Windows shortcut key for reviewing messages in a Skype conversation is NVDA+Control and a numeric key, based on how far back in the message history you want to review. I’m trying that here at work in Skype for Business and I don’t get anything. Has anyone had better luck getting this to work? I can still tab into the messages and use the arrow keys to review messages, so this isn’t a show stopper, but it would be nice to have a faster way of reviewing messages.

Re: Reader mode in Chrome?

I installed a Chrome plugin that was called Reader View I believe. this was on my previous desktop so I don’t recall the details but I do recall it being accessible. When in doubt, why not just install a plugin and give it a shot? Its free and can always be removed if it doesn’t work out.

Re: mp3 to text

I don't know what accounts for the discrepancy.  I looked at the Switch home page and the description of the program says nothing about converting speech to text.  My program doesn't have such an option.  It is the free version. 
 
I did a Google search for something like Switch file Converter convert speech to text and I didn't find one mention in the first five or six results.

The free version, as I recall, works as a full version at the outset.  You may have enough time before it becomes a more limited free version to do what you want, but don't put it off.  I don't know how long the free period lasts but it may be only about a week.  I'm using Switch as the more limited free version and no such option exists. 
 
You will know when you have been switched to the free version because every time you run it, you will have to press enter to answer a message indicating that you want to continue using the free version.

the Switch program from nch software does indeed produce text from a

sound input file.

Don't know if this is available in the unpaid version. However it

certainly exists in the paid for version.

The facility is offered when the initial sound file is opened. The

choice is made from the out options (i.e. various formats including

text) when a choice is made to use the microsoft software available on

the pc. I chose uk english. The conversion process took approx 2 minutes

from a 4 meg mp3 to create a 21k txt file.

Re: mp3 to text

Yes I have just repeated the experiment by loading one of my Podcasts on Speak On into Switch demo but as you say the resulting output was not really useful. So the text conversion facility is definitely there but so far for me at least the text output was not comprehensible.

Mind you that may well be Switch struggling with my diction and lisp and other with clearer dictation may fare better. It is certainly accessible with NVDA though and may be  people should try it first to see if Switch likes their voices any more than it appears to like mine.

I have the free version of switch and I just converted several MP3 files into text.

It wasn’t accurate at all. It left out over 50% of the file content and added in words and whole sentences that weren’t even in the sound file.

When I open the free version of Switch, I don't have to open any file to see the output selections.  I can tab around and see a combo box of file types such as MP3, wave, and a lot of others.  There is no text conversion offered and I assume this is the selection combo box you are talking about.

 

We don't know the sound quality of the files or how that might affect the accuracy of conversion.  How much does Switch cost to buy?  Is there a full demo that runs for a period of time before the user is limited to the free version?

Apologies and thanks for the update.

This facility was not in Switch when I bought it some years ago. Unfortunately my Switch activation no longer works on Windows 10 as they had a horrible habit of only allowing one install so I am clearly not up to date.

Thanks for correction.

the Switch program from nch software does indeed produce text from a

sound input file.

Don't know if this is available in the unpaid version. However it

certainly exists in the paid for version.

The facility is offered when the initial sound file is opened. The

choice is made from the out options (i.e. various formats including

text) when a choice is made to use the microsoft software available on

the pc. I chose uk english. The conversion process took approx 2 minutes

from a 4 meg mp3 to create a 21k txt file.
