Date   

to the one who had a corrupted sapi5 synthesizer.

Curtis Delzer
 

HI! try the ""revert to factory configuration" and see if that doesn't make your sapi 5 synthesizers work again using NVDA. I might have been ignored because mine it restored my sapi 4 engine, but I bet you'll have a good result if you give that a try before you attempt to re-install or repair all of those sapi5 engines. NVDA, has an issue where if you get into the control panel of it's synthesizers, it attempts to write to one of it's configuration files for a sapi engine and can't or gets interrupted in some way, it corrupts the file, it's own reference to it, so the "reset to factory configuration" somehow fixes it.
Try and see if it works for you. I bet you'll be surprised since it is working on the logon screen as you use to have happen, just as mine with sapi4.
I have an Eloquence set of voices from an installation of Kurzweil I use for sapi4 since I don't wish to pay for a sapi5 version of the Eloquence voices, and I saved a configuration which works on my logon screen. I attempted to have NVDA use a different voice under sapi4, and after changing speed and some other settings, no matter how often I press "ok," from within the NVDA dialog, it would not exit. So, when I re-booted to get my speech back it was a corrupted sapi4 engine that NVDA falsely reported, but naught was the case since every other screen reader which supported the sapi4 engine still worked fine so, hmm! I go, why?
If you re-install NVDA I suppose that fixes it too, but it is like using a hose when a squirt gun will do. :) So, try the "reset to factory configuration" first before re-installing all those sapi5 engines.
Let me know how you get on with it.

Hello!


Do you use Vocalizer Expressive from Tiflotecnia or from Code Factory?


If you use from Tiflotecnia, you can get the updated driver from:

https://www.tiflotecnia.net/Instal/vocalizer_expressive_driver-3.1.1.nvda-addon


Best regards,

Hello,
 
Sorry if this has been covered before, but I have just tried to update NVDA and been told that the driver for my vocaliser voices is out of date and the add on cannot be installed.
does this mean that I will have to pay again for new voices?
If this is the case, I believe that the voices can be obtained for use with any screen reader, is that correct.
 
Thanks for any clarification.

Tony,

I used Reaper and the reaSynth plugin it comes bundled with. I'm not sure what andre used.

If you like, write me off list and I'd be happy to see about making some sounds for you. It'd be something to keep my mind of things. :)

All the best,

Hello everyone,

some years ago the sounds of NVDA should have been renewed, but were discarded.

Do any of you still have these sounds and could you send them to me?

Thank you very much in advance and best regards Ali

Re: OCR version 2, compatible with NVDA 2019.3 or later #addonrelease

Kara Goldfinch
 

Great news.

Even though I use Windows 10 and the regular OCr works in most cases, there are a couple of rare instances where, inexplicably, the old add-on gives better results. I kept 2019.2.1 around for the odd occasion I need to use the Komplete Audio 6's control panel as that is one of them.

Hello everyone,

 

The following is applicable for fans of old OCR Add-on (compatible with Windows 7 and 8.x): a code contributor to NVDA is now maintaining the beloved add-on, which is now compatible with NVDA 2019.3. More information can be found at:

Note that this add-on is not applicable to Windows 10 users, as Windows 10 contains OCR functionality.

Re: Windows 10 Mail program and NVDA

Thanks for that additional info, which is good to have in case I need it.

 

I am beginning to figure things out but agree 100 percent that it would be a lot easier if accessibility needs were taken more seriously and met by developers of mainstream software. I just had a discussion with the tech support of another software. They recognized and replicated the problem I had described. (I gave them the link to NVDA for them to test the result.) However, I won’t see any change for the better to arrive at my fingertips anytime soon. Let’s face it, the problem I raised landed at the very bottom of their to-do list because it is not of immediate concern to the majority of (sighted) users.

Be aware that adding an email signature is doable but is also a pain in the neck. It would behoove you to write out your signature starting with stars(*) to separate the message from the signature.

do this in notepad then copy

open mail

tab to settings

arrow down to signature

If you have the necessary boxes checked to add a signature then tab one tab past picture. Note you wil not hear anything.

paste your signature

shift tab to save and enter

Hopefully this will be enough. You won't know until you open a new email and arrow down in the message field to see if it is there.

Re: how can I set symbol pronounciation for special case?

Samuel Kacer
 

Hello,Hi Robert, that's a good point. I think in that special case I would be okay with it, since it is relatively rare and as long as I got the regex to exclude the enclosing case like 'hello, world' then that would be good enough for me.

I will keep in mind writing the special prime and double prime characters, but alas my problem is reading other people's stuff that just use the plain apostrophe character.


Re: how can I set symbol pronounciation for special case?

Samuel Kacer
 

Thanks, Tyler. I've started looking through doc for python RE. Not sure how I would go about making an addon for this... Is there a place I could hook into to filter/transform the text being sent to the synthesizer?

I've gotten closer. Now my regex will exclude the case when it is being used as an apostrophe such as in contractions like don't and I'll. But still cant figure out how to exclude the case when the single quotes are being used to enclose a word such as the case in a python string literal.

Here is the regex:
(\w+)'(\s|$)

i've tried to exclude the enclosing case by prepending a \s to the beginning of the regex so it wont match unless there is a whitespace character before the string of word characters, but that doesn't work. Also tried putting a \b at the beginning so it would match if the string of word characters start at a word boundary, but that doesnt work either...

If anyone has any more ideas, they are appreciated


Re: how can I set symbol pronounciation for special case?

Robert Doc Wright godfearer
 


You have one possible problem facing you. Names ending in (s) like Frances uses an apostrophy at the end to show possession, i.e. Frances'.
this is what I found in a Google search:
 
Word: Insert prime and double prime characters
1. If you have a separate number pad, then press Alt+8242 (press and hold the Alt key while you type 8242) for prime, or Alt+8243 for double prime.

Subject: [nvda] how can I set symbol pronounciation for special case?

Hello,

I find myself reading math a lot and very commonparticular in propositional logic and proofs is to differentiate two variables that are related but different by putting a single quote at the end of one of them. Example:
x and x' (read by symbol to notice the difference)

In math, The secon would be read as "x prime".

If you can see then it is easy to notice the distinction, but since screen readers try to avoid reading irrelevant information, this is skipped by default.

I noticed NVDA allows you to set symbol pronunciation including for special cases like being sentence ending or phrase ending, etc.

What I'd like to achieve is when a single quote is at the end of a word and pronunciation level is most, for NVDA to read it as "word prime". 

I tried several different things, but none of them achieved this.

I know I can make it so single quotes are read at most level, but then it will be read out when it isnt relevant to me. I just want to know about it when it is at the end of a word.

Really appreciate if someone can help with this. 

Thanks,
Sam

Or, back up the old waves folder and copy the new wave files into the original folder.  You will be asked if you want to copy files for which duplicate names exist.  Answer yes when you get such questions and the old files for things like the screen curtain will just be left alone, since there are no duplicately named files in the new waves folder.  Replacing the old files with new ones and leaving sounds that shouldn’t be replaced isn’t difficult nor time consuming.

Re: how can I set symbol pronounciation for special case?

Tyler Spivey
 

It uses Python's re module. You'll have to read the code which handles the speech dictionaries to figure out how it works.

Why don't you just write an addon to do what you want?

Re: how can I set symbol pronounciation for special case?

Samuel Kacer
 

Thanks for the replies. I didn't actually notice that speech dictionary supported regular expressions.

So, I've been playing with writing several expressions, but nothing satisfactory yet.

To expand a little on what I want, I am I want it to match on a word that ends in single quote, but not if it is enclosed in single quotes or has a letter following it directly. So cases like 'hello' and don't shouldn't match.

What I've got so far is thanks to your examples and some googling is this:
([\w]+)'

This is good in that it will match on any word, however it doesnt take care of the case when the word is enclosed in single quotes or is inside a word like don't.

I've tried inverted character classes like this:
[^']([\w]+)'[^a-zA-Z]

But, that doesn't seem to do what I would expect.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,
Sam

Re: strange behavior with Microsoft sapi 5 voices and NVDA

you may have to just do a factory reset of your configuration. you won't use your add-ons, but I had that happen with voices I try to use and then go back to sapi 4 which then can't load. When I do that factory reset of configuration settings, it clears up.

Houdy folks,
Thanks for coming through for me over the weekend with my friend's computer issue.  The fixes are in place, and everything is as it should be on that score. Now I've got one of my own that's got me baffled. Here's what's going down.
  I had some hardware repairs done on my desktop just before we were all thrown into chaos. Everything was fixed internally and all's gravy on that side of the ledger.  However, there is a strange thing going on with Microsoft's Sapi 5 voices and NVDA that's got me scratching my head.  Please bare with me as I try to explain this because it's a new one on me.
When I initially log on to enter my password, the proper voice that I use which is neospeech Paul comes on as it should. However, now this is where things get dicey. Once past the log on screen the Sapi 5 voices loose all functionality, and I have to switch to the windows one core voices for things to function in somewhat of a proper manner. I've tried all of the tricks that I know to put things right, but nothing works.
I wouldn't normally put up a fuss about it, because I can use the one core voices just fine for most tasks.  however, Some of the games that I play to help keep me sane during this crazy time that we're living in like chess, and cribbage  also use the Microsoft Sapi 5 voices, and they've all been compromised as well. What's happened, and does anyone have a fix for this strange issue? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks much and everyone stay safe.
Tony


Re: how can I set symbol pronounciation for special case?

If you wanted to match other alphabetic characters (such as Greek letters), a pattern like this could work: ([^\W\d_])'
