I completely agree with Gene. The critical nature of some of the posts here continue to amaze me.

Amen!  And it's not even constructive criticism, but of the, "This doesn't meet my preferences!!," type whining.  Your preferences are not what determines how others make content that they're giving away, freely.

If anyone ever wants an example of the old saying, "No good deed goes unpunished," they should be pointed to this topic.

For the love of heaven, show a bit of gratitude for someone creating content that's focused on your own community and that does it well!

Re: espeak NG

Jujube
 

Hi, As I've said before, speech synthesizers are a significant personal preference thing. I suggest that you browse through all the eSpeak variants, and I promise that you'll be able to narrow it down to a select few within no time. I suggest that you try the following variants: Edward and Edward2, all the klatt voices, male 1-8, female 1-5 or 6, all Iven variants. Hope this helps.

NVDA does support Japanese braille, I use ot with a braille sense
polaris and it reads with no issues. :) As for the TTS, that's all
well and good except I don't know of any legal way to get the version
that has the extra languages.

is there a free Japanese TTS engine for NVDA (e.g. a SAPI4 or SAPI5

Re: Improvements to the caps lock key and the NVDA key

Sarah k Alawami
 

It can be. Not for me all the time but when my lefthand decides to brake, and it has happened, I hardly have the energy or the strength to do that double press if I need to. What I would do is post your suggestion on the github, come up with a very good use case, then see comments there as well.

 

Good luck.

Ignoring sticky keys, which is a separate function of its own, when the CAPS LOCK key is used as a modifier key I cannot think of a time when that would not involve what would easily be "timeable" as a long-press or require CAPS LOCK along with another key (as it is the modifier).  A very quick single press of CAPS LOCK meant to be used as CAPS LOCK is something NVDA could likely detect and pass through because it would be a very quick strike.

Personally, I don't think this is really necessary as CAPS LOCK is not, generally speaking, a commonly used key, unlike shift.  On the rare occasions where you really want CAPS LOCK and it's being used as the NVDA modifier key a quick double press does not seem too difficult to accomplish.
