for those who don't play NV speech player, create a copy of NVDA 2020.4, and install this add-on

I actually quite liked the Adam voice which its variant is not currently in Espeak as far as I'm aware. I know that the Adam voice is there, but it's not the familiar one I heard in NVSpeechPlayer.

As you've just said, if anyone's willing to continue with this, that would be awesome! If not, I have plans to revive some add-ons that might not be maintained by anyone else, mostly nostalgic ones like OldEloquence and possibly some modern ones as well.

I'll hopefully be in the process of learning Python so I can hopefully help out with not just add-ons but, if needed, NVDA itself.

Just to follow up on Eduardo's comments.  On the NV Speech Player's GitHub page, we have posted the following maintenance note (This is not new btw, I'm just sharing to ensure we're all on the same page):

"Maintenance Note
NV Access is no longer maintaining this project. If you make use of this project or find it interesting, and you have the time and expertise to maintain it, please feel free to fork it and let us know you are interested in taking it on.

This includes the speechPlayer core itself, plus the nvSpeechPlayer NVDA add-on also in this repository. Note that the eSpeak-ng/espeak-ng project also includes a copy of the speechPlayer code as an alternative Klatt implementation."


Kind regards

Quentin.

After the Pilgrims landed, they had a brutally hard winter and some of them died.  The first Thanksgiving was celebrated after the first summer, in the fall because of the good harvest that year.

Hi, India,

 

The Pilgrams cme from England to fight for freedom from their tyrannical government. They settled in a place called Janestown in 1620. They came to our shores on a ship called the Mayflower. After settlihng on our shores, they gave thanks to God for all the blessings he had given them. That’s why we celebrate Thanksgiving. I know Canada celebrates Thanksgiving in October.

 

I hope this helps somewhat.

Hello,

On this Thanksgiving day in the U.S., I want to babble and do a bit of reflection, and I hope you will read this message thoroughly. I hope this message finds all of you happy, healthy, content, etc.

This past year has been nothing short of a nightmare for many of us. I know I have, and continue to face struggles, and I have no doubt that many of you are as well. All I can say is, we need to try to remain resilient. We need to lean on one another. We need to lean into those things that make each of us who we are. We need to love, we need to live, and we need to laugh. A lot. Some of us also need to grieve. We need to work through our pain. We need to scream,  we need to cry. For those things, all of those things are what unite us as human beings, across cultures, across religious boundaries, across borders.

In all of that, I want to thank you. Thank you for being part of this community. Thank you for passing along your knowledge to others. Thank you for being part of what makes this community a community. We are all united around NVDA, of course, but we are also unique individuals with struggles, hopes, dreams, etc., and anyone contributing to this community helps make it what it is. Whether you are here to post your questions, or are mostly providing answers, and even if you are simply a lurker, thank you. I am grateful for your support, for being here. We might disagree with one another at times, we might get annoyed at one another at times, but we are all humans, all here united around NVDA.

I also want to thank NvAccess. They are the reason we are here, of course, and they provide equity where that wasn't a thing before NVDA, to many who can now use their computers at no cost. Should you feel called to do so, please consider giving to NVAccess in the form of a donation this year. There are many deals this time of year, of lots of things to buy, but we can all help make sure that NVAccess continues to deliver.

Finally, I realize that Thanksgiving is not celebrated by everyone, and I recognize that some may even be hurting on this day. If you are one of those individuals, I want you to feel comfortable reaching out to me personally, using the contact information in my signature. I am happy to talk to you, and to do what I can to help. If you are an Indigenous person, I hope that you will understand the intent behind this message, and recognize that it is not my intent to cause you suffering. If, for some other reason, you are struggling on this day, I am sorry for your pain, and I hope you will reach out to someone. You are not alone.

Re: wanted eliquence for my old nvda on windows 7

Gene
 

You can avoid such problems if all you want is Eloquence by hnot purchasing the Eloquence Add-on, which comes with another synthesizer and not just Eloquence.  You can purchase the Eloquence MSAPI5 version.  This version only contains Eloquence and you can use it with any program that supports the MSAPI5 speech interface.  And no matter how NVDA is updated, the MSAPI version will work so you don’t have to worry about losing access to it for a short while now and then because of an occasional NVDA update.

Well you can buy the code factory sapi ones for like 60 bucks or the
nvda one atguys.com should have all those.

I use eloquence and vocaliser in sapi and for all they are they are good
packages with good interfaces.

The only issue I have ever had was after a version update vocaliser
forgot to tell me they would be updating some voices and not
reinstalling them so I had  to remove all voices and put them back which
wasted an hour but that was fine.

Re: wanted eliquence for my old nvda on windows 7

Gene
 

Your subject line says you want Eloquence.  Your message doesn’t specify. 
 
I shall assume in this message that you only want Eloquence.  Let us know if that isn’t correct. 
 
You can buy Eloquence and the same Eloquence will work in Windows 7 as in later versions of Windows.  I’ll let those more familiar with ;purchasing Eloquence discuss it further.  I will say, however, that there is a demo which runs for seven days so you can evaluate it.
