Re: NVDA voice profiles are not functioning in latest NVDA after changing synthesizer

Quentin Christensen
 

Can you both please clarify exactly which voices / synthesizers you are using?  Sandesh, I'm not familiar with a synth called "AP4", but did you mean SAPI 4"?

It sounds like you managed to get back to a voice you can use, but if you do set the synthesizer to something which doesn't work, two ways to overcome it are:

1) Revert NVDA to the last saved configuration by pressing NVDA+CONTROL+R.  If all else fails, pressing this three times quickly will reset NVDA back to factory settings.

2) Or you can change the synthesizer again, if you are happy to try doing so without speech:
- Press NVDA+CONTROL+S to open the synthesizer dialog
- Press W for Windows OneCore voices or E for eSpeak-NG.
- Press ENTER.  The new synthesizer should load and start speaking.

Note that this assumes Windows OneCore is the only (or at least first alphabetically) synthesizer beginning with W and eSpeak NG is the only or first beginning with E.

Regards

Quentin.

Re: Forcing NVDA Find versus Browser Find

If anyone experiencing this is willing to, what might really help here is a copy of an NVDA lot set to debug level.  If sent to the list it will need to be in the body of an email, or you can email it to me at info@... (with a brief description please, so I know what the log is about!).

Kind regards

Hi guys



I was browsing the under development section and saw the add on for Windows magnifier. I knew there was one for windows 7 but no higher back then.


it looks as though this will work on windows 10

I seen this add on a little while back on the section under development.


has any one who has a bit more sight have a play with this add on and how well did it work?


I saw it when installed went up to 16 times magnification in Windows I thought it used to only be like 4 times at one time maybe windows 7 or did it change later on?


it seems to have a stable release number but is still under development. Is it been reviewed at the moment to go onto the main add on list? or are bugs etc still be ironed out?


The add on I am referring to can be found at https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/windowsMagnifier.en.html

 Has any one used it with the mouse and did they have any problems like windows locking up? or any ting like that.


There may be some members who could benefit from this add on when it gets released to the main list.


I was also wondering there may be others on this list who do not know about it and may help them.

Re: are there hot keys for raising and lowering speed of speech?

 

Do ctrl+nvda+left or right arrows. When you get to speech rate, use up and down arrows.

Re: Trying to get a hold of AudioTheme iPhone package?

 

Hmmm not sure about iphones but I am in a torrent resilio of a lot of phones.

If anyone wants a package of anything just email me

If you have resilio sync about and care the read only is

BCY4PMASSMX6PTEVJXU7RQOL4KBAZI5NP

Its at least a couple gb in size.

Now I will have to convert this stuff some of it into something other than it is.

There used to be a nvda torrent sync with sounds on it but I didn't keep those but they were interesting.

I have no issues with the piano sounds myself.

What is the difference between the two commercially available Vocalizer synths for NVDA? Sorry, I can't recall the sellers off the top of my head.

Re: are there hot keys for raising and lowering speed of speech?

 

You missed 'em.  And you can bring up the list of same when NVDA is running with NVDA+N,H,Q, which opens up the Commands Quick Reference.

Open that and search for the section entitled, 

Synth settings ring

You've got to be on the speech rate setting, but if you are, and don't hop off of it you can use the Increment/Decrement keystrokes to Increase/Decrease the rate.
