Hi.

Well I brought this voice.

The batch file is for registration and unregistration

Thats all it is.

The author has asked me to make an innosetup package to install it.

From reading its licence file and information this thing was created with acapella my own voice.

https://www.acapela-group.com/solutions/my-own-voice/

This service is free till the voice is used for a spaciffic application.


Re: some messages are very slow in Outlook

Bob Cavanaugh <cavbob1993@...>
 

Strange. Are you using UI Automation or not? That seems to have solved
the crashing issue for me, but it's also strange that you can't
reproduce the issue reliably. For me, restarting never worked, and I
can reproduce the issues I've described pretty reliably running
Outlook 2016. Messages from Xfinity sometimes do it, but not as
reliably as those from Uber. Groupon sends out so many different types
of emails that I can't guarantee every one of their messages will have
issues, but the messages that all use the same template do all have
issues. I have no idea whether this is a bug with Outlook or NVDA, but
I came from System Access, and had very few problems with that screen
reader. One message was causing a problem with a particular DLL, but
fixing that file fixed that problem. System Access read every Groupon
message without having to change any setting deep in the advanced
settings, nor did it ever slow down with certain HTML messages.

I have no way of reproducing the issue as I never know which email
will be the one waiting to crash outlook.
But I have had this crash happen more than 9 times today.

nvda 2020.4
outlook 365 updated per company IT settings
windows 10 patched up to date per company IT settings

At this point all the emails that I have seen are company
confidential, so I can not share an example.

I suspect this is an outlook bug not an nvda bug. Any tips on how to
submit a report to MS? My local IT has not been that helpful getting
a bug filed on MS.

Thanks,
Mike

Bob,

I have seen this and suspect the problem is the HTML markup of the
messages.
Uber's messages would have some very cluttered HTML and perhaps
javascript
which could be slowing NVDA down.

Re: Why are some Greek letters read in Unicode values, not with their actual letter

Interesting. I just tried various settings, and none seemed to make a difference as to how these are pronounced.
Although OCR (NVDA+r) gave different, though I think still wrong, results.

Hello,


I wouldn't recommend it. Because when the seller sells it, it goes against the term of Acapela group, since the voice he generate using tools from Acapela group. He also advertise this on audiogames.net forum, see the below link:

https://forum.audiogames.net/topic/39737/moderators-and-administrators-please-delete-this-topic/

He changed the topic title apparrently, but the history of all the post is still up there. I'd recommend people to read it before purchasing.

Thanks

I have a new TTS voice you can use with NVDA under SAPI5. You can go to jacksontts.fandom.com to learn more. You can also go to the extra voices page on NVDA's download page under Jackson TTS. It is only 5 dollars per person. It is very good with expression and long phrases. If I get enough people to buy it, I will add more voices to buy as well as upgrade my own.

Hello Ollie,

Unfortunately, my thread on this seems to have been broken up into a number of different threads. However, if you do the following:
2. Search for the topic you wish to find. In this case, you can search for the hashtag adminnotice.
3. Go through that page, and you will find my initial message on this topic at https://nvda.groups.io/g/nvda/message/82397?p=,,,100,0,0,0::Created,,%23adminnotice,100,2,0,81249685

Note to anyone that the initial link I posted, in step #1, will work to find any message on any topic.

Two more things:

1. Posting threads with appropriate subjects helps everyone, should they choose to utilize the archive, even years down the road.
2. Maintaining threads without starting a completely new one is really important as well, as it means that finding a specific thread on a topic is more easily accomplished.

I hope this helps.

Ah cool. I don’t use SPL anymore. So I’ll just wait for the essentials to hit the add on updater.

Hi,

Fine for now, but a future release of these add-ons will require future NVDA releases, and a version of SPL is under development that you must install in order to use it with upcoming NVDA 2021.1.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi all,

StationPlaylist and Windows 10 App Essentials 21.03 are now available. Note that these releases are manual updates so you must:

  1. Download updates from the links specified.
  2. Disable updates for these add-ons from Add-on Updater until further notice.

 

Key changes:

  • StationPlaylist: improved compatibility with NVDA 2020.4 and many bug fixes.
  • Windows 10 App Essentials: initial support for Windows 10 Version 21H1 (build 19043).

Re: reading my documents folder

How about pressing alt to open the ribbons or menus, then alt again to close them? That may not help either but I wonder if that is an instance where, for some reason, leaving and returning to where you were on the screen would work around the problem.
