If you want to turn off speech in nvda you can hit nvda plus s (laptop mode) to cycle through the choices, or listen to the beeps, they are not that  bad.

 

Good luck.

Hi Sharon and Sarah, what I did was exit NVDa while I was in a meeting. When I wanted out I would start it or Jaws to exit the meeting. I myself would just go into the settings and find all this out. I’ve used my I pad to go into a meeting and just double tap to turn off speech. I prefer using the I pad for those kinds of meetings. Each to their own.  If I use this computer I exit the screen reader so I do not hear so and so entered the room or left.  Same with the I phone. I just double tap and that turns off speech. I don’t know how you’d do it on a tablet that’s not apple.  Or google phone.

Is there any difference between the NVDA vocalizer/eloquince addon from
Code factory and the one from Tiflotecnia

Well, if you've checked the NVDA speech log, and it is not sending "Cap"
prior to the letter to the synth when reading letter by letter and
encountering a capital, it seems well nigh impossible that it's not
related to the synth.

Mind you, it could be an idiosyncratic corruption in that software.  But
if you've already done the equivalent of an uninstall/reinstall on that,
there's not much more you can do.

If they won't believe there's an issue when the speech log shows that
what's being sent to the synth doesn't match what it's actually saying,
I don't know what could.

I followed the suggestion and unregistered the code factory package,
uninstalled NVDA including removal of all remaining NVDA folders then
did a complete reinstall of NVDA, all desired addons and the code
factory vocalizer/eloquince addon. Nothing changed.

Re: NVDA announcing Capital letters

I don't think we know enough about the problem to do more than speculate.  I doubt this behavior occurs when Vocalizer is used not with the add-on.  So what is it about the combination of Vocalizer and the add-on that causes this problem?  Also, since we've seen only something like two reports of the problem, we don't know if it is a general one.


And since a lot of people use a synthesizer like Vocalizer for reading and a synthesizer like Eloquence for work, we don't know how many people are affected by the problem.  Is the problem only reported by two people because a lot of people don't use Vocalizer in ways where the problem would show up or is it not a problem for most users?

It's really not that weird.  To this day, because JAWS was "first to market" (or at least "first to successfully market") it predominates the screen reader market, particularly in business settings.

When companies are choosing to do custom work for one screen reader, that screen reader will almost invariably be JAWS.  

It's an accident of history that's still supported by user base size in professional and educational environments.

None of the above should be taken as any comment on the quality of competitors of JAWS.  It's simply a fact of both history and the present situation as far as market share.

Yes, that’s what I did.

 

If you send an upper case A to NVDA and capitals is turned off, it gets an upper case A.

Hello,

I have the beep option checked but I get no sound when I type.

 I try to use the tone option, but   can’t seem to choose the   right numbers so I can use that method. I don’t hear   any change in tone when caps are typed.

 

I do not like the word caps spoken as I can’t hear what I am typing.    What am I missing?

Well that's weird, because, Duxbury themselves wrote the JAWS script.

If you want it badly enough, contact Duxbury.

All the best

It has been a dream of mine ever since going with NVDA that they had a script for Duxbury as I have to use it frequently and can no longer hear what has been written. I spoke to my friend there several years back and he said it would be up to NVDA to write to script.

Hi,

This is because JAWS provides a script for Duxbury. Ironically an app for the blind is not natively accessible, this is strange to me.

All the best

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.

Re: NVDA announcing Capital letters

Again, this does not happen with Eloquence at all, it seems to be a Vocalizer thing.

This problem does not  appear to be existent with the Sapi versions of Eloquence.

I am using the Code Factory Sapi 5 Eloquence  to type this and there is no problem with capital announcement. Capitals are being indicated simply by increased pitch as expected.

Yesterday I was using the Kurzweil Sapi 4 version of Eloquence and again there was no  problem with simply hearing increased pitch to indicate capitals.

 

So this may be a problem confined to the Code Factory Addon versions?

I am constantly relieved that I did not go for the addon flavour given the multiple issues reported over the years with NVDA updates etc.

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

 

Steve

I have both beep and say cap unchecked under speech settings and NVDA still says capital before a capital letter and when typing a capital letter.
