Ok, I finally got my Laptop turned on, and I tried the voices especially David, and the voice I am talking about and the voice of David, are as different as day and night.  I turned JAWS, NVDA off, and I turned on Narrator, and the voice I am talking about and Narrator sound very very similar.  Could this be possible?

I just installed NVDA 2021.1 and I'll bet my bottom dollar that the voice now used by the installer is Microsoft David, which is a Microsoft OneCore Voice.

I use David as my voice with NVDA, but at a slightly faster rate, and if it's not Microsoft David it's so close that using MS David would probably suit anyone who likes that installer voice.

Re: Journal Software

Pretty sure they can't, no. But OneNote might be able to, they make a big deal of being able to add things. Apparently I started one for Youtube videos I wanted to save for later, and the one I have in there shows up as a working link. You still might want actual journal software instead, but I'd say if you've got Windows 10 or a late enough version of Microsoft Office, OneNote is probably worth at least taking a look at. It's free after all. I just checked with my wife, who can see, and she says you can put images in OneNote. So you could just set up a little test with a few images, see what kind of organization you could do, stuff like that, to see if it would work for you.

Re: Journal Software

Tony Malykh
 

I see. Notepad indeed doesn't support images. Microsoft Word and alike would support that, but not sure how convenient that would be - back in the days when I could see Word was notoriously stubborn in putting my images in the worst possible corner of the document. So for images indeed I would imagine some specialized software might be better.

Gene,

When I first downloded and installed NVDA 2021.1, I tried three other voices just to hear what they sounded like.  Now, I can’t find the voice that was there when I first installed NVDA.  Although, even now as soon as I turn on my Windows 10 Laptop and NVDA, I do hear the voice that I like, but only for a second, and then the other voice Zira comes in which I am currently using, and the voice I like I don’t hear anymore.  Kind of strange!  LOL!  I’m thinking the voice I like might be the NVDA original voice, just a thought.

Hi Gene,

The problem I have with raising the voice, is I can’t find the voice in order to change the rate though.  I can only find the three voices David, Zira, Mark, and I can change the rate for either of them, just not the voice I hear when I turn on NVDA.

One point asked about in the original message is how to speed up the voice.  I don’t have Windows 10 and so I can’t describe how you speed it up in Windows 10.  To speed it up in NVDA, open the voice dialog, NVDA key control v, tab to rate, and right arrow until the slider is at the speed you want or at maximum. 

 

You will likely want the speech to be faster and this discussion explains how to do it in Windows itself.  I don’t use Windows 10 and I can’t discuss how it is done.  If you have questions, you may ask here, of course.

Hi Everyone,

 

While I'm trying to get used to NVDA, as I am coming from JAWS after 30 years. I like it so far, but I have more to learn about it.

 

My question is what is the name of the male voice that first comes on when installing NVDA? I like that voice, if I could only speed up the voice, I would like that even better!  I am currently using Zira not sure of the spelling or the name though.  I do like that voice also.  Is the Zira voice from Windows?

Re: Journal Software

Tony Malykh
 

I have been keeping a journal for years in plain text format. Having said this I don't necessarily want to convince you of anything, but I would like to understand why plain notepad wouldn't work for you? In your message you mentioned that you would like to be able to quickly access entries from the past - that can be quite easily accomplished with searching in notepad. So I feel perhaps you forgot to mention some other desired functionality that you cannot achieve with plain notepad?

Hello, everyone.

I have really been wanting to start keeping a journal.

I don't particularly want to do something like this in Word, LibreOffice, or any other word processor. I would ultimately love to find something which would allow me to quickly access past entries if I would ever want to look back at them. I have been on the hunt for a dedicated journal writing application, but am not finding one that is fully accessible. I used RedNotebook when I used screen magnification much more regularly, but now that I rely on NVDA much more than anything, I want to be able to write a journal with as little use of vision as possible.

Are there any fully (or mostly) accessible apps out there for keeping a journal?

If not...I have recently been thinking of trying to develop my programming skills (which are minimal at best at present) and try to figure out what it would take to develop one myself.

I appreciate any input!

Thanks, everyone!

He does sound clear.  In the Microsoft voices in Jaws. I think it’s there too.

Hi Everyone,

 

While I'm trying to get used to NVDA, as I am coming from JAWS after 30 years. I like it so far, but I have more to learn about it.

 

My question is what is the name of the male voice that first comes on when installing NVDA? I like that voice, if I could only speed up the voice, I would like that even better!  I am currently using Zira not sure of the spelling or the name though.  I do like that voice also.  Is the Zira voice from Windows?

 

Thank you all in advance for any help.

 

Janet

 

Peace Be With You.

Could it be a British voice?

I don't think it is David because I listened to David, Zira,Mark, and they all sound different from each other, and the voice I am talking about sounds completely different from all three of those voices.

The male voice you hear when nvda first started, might be David. It and the Zira voice are both part of the micro soft 1core voiceds that come with win10.

Hi Everyone,

While I'm trying to get used to NVDA, as I am coming from JAWS after 30 years. I like it so far, but I have more to learn about it.

My question is what is the name of the male voice that first comes on when installing NVDA? I like that voice, if I could only speed up the voice, I would like that even better! I am currently using Zira not sure of the spelling or the name though. I do like that voice also. Is the Zira voice from Windows?

Thank you all in advance for any help.

Peace Be With You.

I don’t know what voice that is.  Are you saying that when you run NVDA, you hear a certain voice and if you change it, you can’t get back to it?

Hi Gene,

The problem I have with raising the voice, is I can’t find the voice in order to change the rate though.  I can only find the three voices David, Zira, Mark, and I can change the rate for either of them, just not the voice I hear when I turn on NVDA.

One point asked about in the original message is how to speed up the voice.  I don’t have Windows 10 and so I can’t describe how you speed it up in Windows 10.  To speed it up in NVDA, open the voice dialog, NVDA key control v, tab to rate, and right arrow until the slider is at the speed you want or at maximum. 

 

You will likely want the speech to be faster and this discussion explains how to do it in Windows itself.  I don’t use Windows 10 and I can’t discuss how it is done.  If you have questions, you may ask here, of course.

Oh, okay. The earlier NVDA voice that was used 2010 or earlier sounded awful.  I got used to it. Then I guess maybe 2017 or something. It got better.

Thanks, Gene.  What is the keyboard shortcut for this?

I do not think I've used this in all the years I've worked with Windows and I can't find anything using append for the keyword search.
