Re: Code Factory Vocalizer and Eloquence addon

Sam Bushman
 

Hi Abbie,

 

You are a life saver!

 

I upgraded as you did and got that horrible change where cap was spelled out.

I had to move to pitch changes for a while because I couldn’t stand it.

 

I just tried your suggestions and the world is right again – hahaha!

 

>"Use spelling functionality when supported."

 

Do you know what that means and is there any other repercussions from that change?

 

Thank you so much,
Sam

Hi, Don. I had a reverse issue of sorts. I wanted the vocalizer and Eloquence voices to say "cap" before a capital letter. But after installing the latest update to the software a while back, it would spell the word "cap" instead of saying it, which was annoying, to say the least.

So, I tried unchecking the box that said, "Use spelling functionality when supported." Lo and behold, the voices said "capital" instead of spelling the word. So, in your case, try checking that box, if it isn't checked, and see if that doesn't solve your problem.

I don't have "Use spelling functionality when supported." checked. What I want is to only hear a raise in pitch on capital letters. Again I don't have beep on caps checked or say caps on capitals checked. But with all those settings I still hear the word capital before each capital typed or when reviewing test.

That would be helpful. I sensed that my instructors did not receive a lot of training/guidance about making their courses accessible. K.

Enquiring about FL studio

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.
