Many thanks.
I just down loaded this NVDA Add on for adding dictionary files.
Many Thanks.

Subject: [nvda] Release of add-on applicationDictionary
 

Hello friends!

 

Application Dictionary
Informations
• Authors: Ricardo M. Leonarczyk and Rui Fontes
• Version: 1.3
• Download stable version
• Compatibility: NVDA: 2019.1 to 2020.1

 

Usage

This simple add-on makes possible to create application-specific dictionaries for NVDA.
To use the add-on, just go to the application for wich you want a dictionary for, and press NVDA+shift+p. The normal NVDA dictionary dialog will open for you to add entries valid only for the active application (the application name should appear in the dialog title). The default add-on shortcut can be changed through NVDA's input gestures dialog: under configuration node, expand the node that says "Shows the application-specific dictionary dialog".
Command

"NVDA+Shift+p": Shows the application-specific dictionary dialog

Re: Converting JAWS Dictionaries

 

Again, from the one person I've done a conversion for, the report is that it worked for some words/phrases but for a few it didn't.  Until or unless I can get enough test cases, and those who get the conversions back and put them in can report what's not working so I can attempt to figure out why, there's not much more I can do.

I do not code in Python, so I won't be doing this as an NVDA add-on.  Given the nature of what's needed, a stand-alone utility (which is what I've tried to create) should be fine, anyway, as this is generally a "one and done" event for a JAWS dictionary to be converted for appending to the appropriate NVDA dictionary.  As the utility currently stands, it will only handle language agnostic JAWS dictionaries reliably.  That means the language for the given word/phrase is not specified.  It's a simple pattern match.

I will not distribute the results to others as far as the code goes until I'm satisfied that I have something that "is bulletproof" and I don't have that yet and can't get there without test cases.

So, if you have dictionaries that are language agnostic that you'd like converted get in touch with me privately and we can work together.

Looks good. I think it would be helpful, and relatively easy, to add an
"Application dictionary" option within the NVDA menu, within Settings ->
Speech dictionaries. The gesture is fine, but requires people to read
the docs before they can use it. Rather than it just showing up where
they expect it to.

I too agree.
I have several different JAWS dictionary folders, and since I’m now learning NVDA, it would be nice to have NVDA pronounce words correctly.
Many Thanks.

Pele,

           If you happen to know Linux/Unix, the awk command will be very easy to use to do the conversion.

A JAWS dictionary line has the fields, in order:  Actual word|Replacement Word|Language (0x09-English)|Synthesizer|Voice|Language (0 is default)|Case sensitive (0 - No, 1 -Yes)
For the JAWS dictionary, the fields themselves are DOT enclosed/separated, UNLESS, the actual word starts with a dot, in which case it's a comma used for the separator.

The NVDA dictionary file layout is simpler, and the fields are tab separated.  The first field does not have a separator before it.  They are arranged as:
Matching word or regular expression|Replacement|Case Sensitivity (0 - no, 1 - yes)|Type (2 - Whole Word, 1 - Regular Expression, 0 - Anywhere)|Comment (All comments are pre-pended with a #

For both dictionaries, there is a single entry per line of the file.

Have fun with it.  It doesn't appear to be particularly complicated.

Re: Difference between codefactory and Tiflotecnia Vocalizer

I do hear maybe a little pitch change with capital letters but it also says the word Capital which I have unchecked in the settings.  To me saying Capital before each capital letter is annoying.

Just a quick question, can someone give me a comparison of the Vocalizer (I’m only interested in vocalizer) offerings between the codefactory addon and the Tiflotecnia addon.

I want to know about the quality, responsiveness, number of voices available (they both say the same amount on the website) however Tiflotecnia’s voice page doesn’t seem to offer as many as codefactory, if there’s updates, how easy is that? Do you need to deactivate to do windows updates?

I’m just looking for someone who’s used one or both for a long time who can tell me straight up how they perform.

Their website is strange. For some reason, the driver for Python 3 eloquence is located somewhere else entirely. You're not the first person to be tripped up by this, and you won't be the last. I'm a bit confused and surprised as to why they did things that way.


Re: Difference between codefactory and Tiflotecnia Vocalizer

luke scholey
 

Gene, I agree with you. I can’t find a demo of the tiflotecnia addon though, and on the vocalizer NVDA website, downloading the driver to test it out results in a compatibility error from NVDA.

Anyone know if they do a demo?

They do. But the Code Factory demo never runs. Apparently, it's expired. But I have never run it before. Tried it on multiple computers with the same result.

Re: Difference between codefactory and Tiflotecnia Vocalizer

Jesse Farquharson
 

Sounds better in what way? I'm curious.


Re: Difference between codefactory and Tiflotecnia Vocalizer

Greg Wocher
 

Hello,
I have both the code factory add on and the Tiflotecnia one. I think the code factory add on sounds a bit better than the Tiflotecnia one. The Tiflotecnia add on does seem to be a bit more responsive than the code factory one. I have actually had the Tiflotecnia since it came out for NVDA. There are two reasons I recently purchased the code factory add- on. First is eloquence wich is one of my favorite synths. The second reason is that the code factory add on for vocalizer has voices that the Tiflotecnia one does not. Nathan and Evan are two that come to mind right away.

I do. I think it works quite well. Haven't noticed any garbling or anything of the like. Haven't experienced any crashes with these voices and they start up almost as fast as NVDA itself does. I do wish questionmarks and exclamation points were a bit more pronounced (you can't always tell a question is being posed based on the inflection) but in my experience that is pretty common with synths aside from good ol' Eloquence. Sigh

Re: configuring nvda for announcing heading and heading levels:

Patrick Le Baudour
 

Hi,

As far as I know, it is not possible, unless some obscure addon does the trick.
Depending on what website you are using, navigating using header levels (digits 1 to 6 keys in desktop layout) can be of help instead of just h.
I've had that problem with a webnovel before, but my crude method of solving it was to copy-paste in notepad, i can't really recommend doing that. I also did have to save the page, to edit the faulty parts once, but that's even more tedious

unfortunately, some authors forget to close heading tag,

its very annoying!
knowing heading levels are important for me, when i disable reporting

how can i overcome this problem?

Just confirmed to send a voice message just under the chat part to the person. You just need to go into browse mode hit the space bar on the button and the first time allow your camera or mic. Then after that find the button again hit the space bar on the button record the message you can also arrow up to see the duration of the recording then arrow back down to the button and hit the space bar on the button to stop it and send it. Just been added into the tutorial. It would make it so much easier if they were labled.


Now to see what sections are under the attachments section and add them in if all goes well.


Not sure if i can do a new group but think you need to drag and drop people into the chat unless it lets you add them in by text.
