Podcast app that works with Windows 10 or 11

Lisa P Geibel
 

Hi,

My Husband, Marcus and I have been getting our Podcasts from the Victor Stream and are running into issues with them not coming in anymore. Web sites have shown that they have aired, but we're just not getting them. Are there any Podcast apps that work with Windows 10 or 11 and are not tied to Apple? We use the latest version of NVDA, but can also use the latest version of JAWS if accessibility is an issue with the program.

Enquiring about FL studio

Charlie Dyasi
 

Hello guys, hope all of you are good, just for curiosity, and interest sake.
I just want to know, if there is maybe anyone, who has maybe figured out a add on for FL studio
If there is one, and if someone maybe has played around with it, can you refer me to where I can get it, I really would love to have it.
Thanks guys, can’t wait to hear from you.
Regards Charlie.

Re: Ms Russian Voices and NVDA

Tony Malykh
 

I wrote an add-on exactly for this case:

https://github.com/mltony/nvda-tonys-enhancements

One of its functions is language map, which by default includes English and Russian IIRC. So it will force your synthesizer to switch languages whenever it sees text writte in Latin/Cyrillic. In theory it should work with any synth, but some synthesizers, or rather their NVDA drivers don't support some functionality.

I can confirm that it works well in Microsoft Speech API, Windows OneCore Voices and espeak. Used to work with RHVoice a couple of years ago but I haven't tested since then. And yeah, I tested specifically on Russian/English pair.

This might be on the border of inappropriate, but here goes:


I have a Russian voice that I purchased some time ago from a 3rd party vendor, and it works with NVDA. However, there is one really serious problem with it. If you are on a page with mixed English and Cyrillic, the Russian voice really falls apart. Rather than just reading the English in a Russian accent, which is what happens on an iPhone, for instance, my speech synthesizer from the Ivona company pronounces the English in some way that is really quite impossible to understand. So I'm wondering if there is anybody on here who speaks Russian and has had occasion to download and use either of the MS voices for Windows 10. If these voices act like the one I already have, then there is no point in going there. But if they don't mangle the English because they use pronunciation rules, perhaps because the synth is from Poland, where they use the Latin alphabet and have their own phonetic rules, then I'm going to go through the process of installing the voices and hope for decent results.

Re: Ms Russian Voices and NVDA

Mary Otten
 

In my view, keeping in mind that I truly loathe e-speak in English, I did listen to it a long time ago in Russian and concluded that it was truly awful. The expressive vocalizer voice should do the job, as it is the same one that is on the iPhone, where it does not render English unintelligible, if you're willing to live with Russian accented English. I'm now trying to figure out if the sapi5 offers the same as the nvda add on. This is probably getting off topic and maybe needs to go to chat.

The sereproc stuff looked nice but its still a lot for those.

One thing with russian voices, would nuphon or rh voice handle that.

Hello, i hope that all are doing geat, well i've installed DBT (Duxbury Translator) to write braille, but unfortunately, NVDA is not providing spoken feedback while writing. i've also tried perkey duck by same author (Duxbury ) but results are same. can anyone guide me about the solution of it? i've tried it with jaws, and it is working fine, but i primarily use NVDA as a main screen reader, so i want to use it with NVDA. any help would be much appreciated.

Hi,

if you mean while typing, then yes.

in the voice settings, you can find:

Say cap before capitals  check box  not checked  Alt+c

you can check it or use the beep option which is right after the cap option.

good luck.

Re: NVDA announcing Capital letters

I don't think that is true if you use Eloquence as provided by the add-on, at least when I tried the demo, I didn't have that problem.  I don't like the other synthesizer, I don't recall its name, and I hardly played with it.  I hope others will discuss whether I am correct because some who want to use eloquence as an add-on might be worried about that.

Hi,

This is a function, or problem with, certain synthesisers.

For example, if you use CodeFactory's NVDA Vocalizer add-on, and turn off all the capital options, it will still say Capital, because NVDA doesn't intercept the interpretation of the add-on itself.

JAWS has a feature called Controlled By Synthesiser, which you can switch off. If you do, JAWS does all the processing. Maybe NVDA needs something like this. Controlled By Synthesiser can be seen in punctuation settings I believe.

All the best

Hello all,

I now use Microsoft Teams every day with my colleagues to communicate and when Teams is not open, I receive e-mails notifications that someone has published a new post in Teams.

The mails have the subject lines : “you have new messages in Microsoft Teams”.

IN the message text, you can read who published messages, there is a link to the post and an extract of what they say.

I can read what they say with another well-known screen reader in Outlook, the mail application on my phone, but with NVDA, I only can read many empty lines, strange signs, but not the piece of message that has been published by my colleagues.

I tried to enable tables announcement by NVDA, as well as graphics announcements, but it is impossible to read the information.

Does anyone know how I can have NVDA read the whole mail?

Unfortunately, I could only test with Outlook, I don’t know if there is the same problem with Thunderbird.

Thank you for any hints.

Best

Sylvie

Hi

In the voice settings NVDA+Ctrl+v, there is a setting for capitals which can be set to a pitch change, beep or announcement of “Cap” when capitals are encountered.

Re: NVDA announcing Capital letters

It isn't limited to typing.  If you move by letter through a document, you will hear cap spoken when you are on a capital letter.  The beep option works the same way.  All options, raise pitch, beep, and say cap, all change what is done when both typing and moving by character.
