Re: acapela 1.7 not working

Chris
 

You have either downloaded the wrong version of the addon or your version of NVDA is incompatible

 

I would go back to the download page of the acapela and download the correct version for your version of NVDA

Hi

 

The acapela voices 1.7 addon is not working with nvda 2021.2. I have 14 days left in the trial. I installed the engine and the Calibri voices. When I choose acapela I get no speech and have to restart NVDA. And when you try to install voices from the addon itself it wants you to download 1.6 addon version which is not compatible with 2021.2. I contacted acapela but got no response. If these voices won’t work I guess I can’t buy them and it says I have 14 days left in my trial so they should be working.

1. Go to:


http://www.acapela-nvda.com/


2. Follow the instructions, and get to:


http://www.acapela-nvda.com/get-your-download-here-v1-7/


3. Download the engine. I saved it.


4. Download the addon with all of the calibri voices or whatever they're called. Again, I saved it.


5. Go to where you saved them. Click on the addon for the engine. Tell it to install. Say no when it asks you to restart.


6. Then click on the addon with all of the voices. Again, say yes you want to install it. This time, restart.


7. Hit NVDA-ctrl-s, pick a capela as your synth.


For me, this talks just fine. I don't know that I'd buy them, because I've never been a huge fan of their voices and there's no rate boost that I can see, which means even at a hundred percent, it's slower than the rate I usually read at. But I am absolutely running NVDA 2021.2, I just checked, Windows 10 21H1 with latest updates, and it's working just fine. I didn't even get anything about picking a trial license or whatever, I just did the above steps, and it's working, for how long, I have no idea, not that it matters because I'm going to uninstall it all after I'm done writing this message anyway. I think I did briefly do a trial a few years ago, so maybe it's just picking up on that, although I don't know if I did it on this machine or not. Anyway, working just fine here.

Re: Goldwave NVDA question

dennis huckle <denniswhuckle@...>
 

Hello Jean,

Looking at the latest add on for goldwave it mentions in the help file that this add on works better with goldwave 657.

Also the latest version of nvda must be used due to changes.

This apparently stops announcements of file name in play, rewind and fast forward.

Kind regards,

Dennis huckle.

Hello,
As well as muting speech with nvda key and s you could try from your start button press windows key and in the edit box type goldwave setup.
This takes you to a selection of different settings that aren't in goldwave itself.
At the bottom of that screen is a setting to
Force screen reader mode.
Try checking this and see if it makes a difference.
I know this works with jaws but aren't sure about nvda.
Tab then to save and press enter.
Hope this helps although I am using the latest add on for goldwave and running windows 10 and don't have the same problem but it may be worth fiddling with those settings to see if any make a difference.
Remember to restore speech having muted press nvda key and s twice.
Kind regards,

I am using the latest NVDA and the latest Goldwave add on with a new 14 inch Dell laptop. When I have a file open in Goldwave and hit play, nvda tells me what file I am playing. That of course makes editing difficult when using one soundcard. I've only had this happen on this laptop. Normally when I hit play, I just hear the word play or I just hear the audio start playing.

Re: Navigation similar to the “vertical navigation” voiceover feature?

Jonathan COHN
 

Hello,
Essentially, what you want to be able to happen is to have NVDA check the dimensions of the current object and then move in one of the ordinal directions until a new object is discovered beyond the current objet. I could see this being a slightly modified object removed type method.

For example oif current object upper left corner is
x=40, y=60 and its size is 60x40

Pressing down arrow Should look for an object near x=40, y=100

acapela 1.7 not working

Josh Kennedy <joshknnd1982@...>
 

Hi

 

The acapela voices 1.7 addon is not working with nvda 2021.2. I have 14 days left in the trial. I installed the engine and the Calibri voices. When I choose acapela I get no speech and have to restart NVDA. And when you try to install voices from the addon itself it wants you to download 1.6 addon version which is not compatible with 2021.2. I contacted acapela but got no response. If these voices won’t work I guess I can’t buy them and it says I have 14 days left in my trial so they should be working.

Re: Navigation similar to the “vertical navigation” voiceover feature?

Hi Joseph,
Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, while the information on the page appears like a table for sighted users, it is not constructed as an HTML table so those navigation keys won’t work. I went into chrome Dev tools and manually added some aria role tags to make it behave like a table and it definitely helps, but the way they’ve arranged this thing is really strange so it’s hard to make it perfect. I might write myself a chrome extension to at least make it partially accessible. Thanks again.

Re: Goldwave NVDA question

Have you used the latest add-on before?  I suspect the add-on is causing the problem.  You can stop speech if you don’t need it for what you are doing with the command NVDA key s.  To restore speech, issue the command twice.  You can just hold the NVDA key and press s twice.
