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

 

When I read them with ESpeak's Greek voice, it reads what sounds like Greek. I'm not sure it is as simple as them not being Greek letters.

Surely that's between him and Acapela. Acapela is an active company, and
if it was truly illegal then they would deal with it.
It should not be up to us to say what is legal or what's not, since
there might be other contracts involved that we simply don't know about,
separate from the Terms of Service on the website.

His lawyers might be able to find a hole in the terminology, perhaps claiming that he is not making the use but the end users are, but I would imagine that since he was the one who commissioned the voice, any use that is made of it would flow back to him.

So if the voice was produced in this way, he would need Acapela's permission to sell and distribute it. I'm not saying he doesn't have that--I have no idea--but the license you linked just provides for a demo, and is, as such, not sufficient to allow distribution.

And just as I suspected, you didn't include all relevant information.
Quote:
"Use your own voice in your favorite application
Once the synthetic voice has been created it can be used for free in a type&talk box on the website, or it can be purchased for use with SAPI on Windows, with Google TTS API on Android, or in a partner application."
Unquote:

In short, the only free permitted use is in the type and talk box on the web site itself.

Sharing or selling the voice can't be legal unless the law is illogical
which strains credulity. Are you saying that the voice can be shared but
as soon as someone uses it for something, such as with NVDA, than its use is
illegal? In that case, I would think that sharing the voice is being an
accessory to illegal use since obviously, no one is going to get the voice
with the intent of just having it sit there.

In short, I find it so implausible that the law would have such a loophole
that I consider sharing the voice illegal either in and of itself or because
the intent is for illegal use.

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.

Subject: Re: [nvda] some messages are very slow in Outlook

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.

    Hi Gene,

    I have a feeling that he wants the money for the voice, but not
    for the

    software technology itself, since as I said it seems to be open
    source.

    Since we don't know if that's compatible with the license, I'd
    have a

    real bellyache buying those voices.

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.
