Re: using facebook

Travis Siegel <tsiegel@...>
 

Usenet is the www before the www existed.  Well, it was more of a cross between groups.io and the www.  You could literally find anything on usenet, but it's more or less a large (and I mena large) collection of discussion groups to which anyone can participate in and contribute to.  Unfortunately, these days, most isps don't provide usenet access, so you're kind of out of luck when it comes to accessing these groups.  As far as I know, there are still a few providers that will privide access for a fee, which is truly a shame, because it used to be provided with each and every internet access account, and it was a great resource, of course, it was also a huge spam trap, and still is, but it's still loaded with useful information.

There are dangers out there.
I was never brought up with this concept, but a lot of the younger nvda users here have always known this stuff. I use Usenet, and always have done. We all know that is open and public but when it comes to Facebook, and to a lesser extent, Twitter, its unfortunately alot easier for folk to find you.

It's extremely easy to navigate, but the facebook mobile page doesn't have everything the main facebook page has, or sometimes it does, but it's burried somewhere, and good luck finding it. It's nearly impossible to do everything I want to do when using the mobile version of the page, so I gave it up for useless years ago. Admittedly, the regular page is a hassle, and sometimes it's slow as all get out, but it works, and in the long run that's all that matters.

Of course, I use face book as little as possible, so your mileage may vary.

But, just for reference, downloading the voices I wanted didn't change
my circle of errors, I'm still getting the thanks for using, and
telling me that pressing ok will start the install process, (which btw
doesn't).  Installing the samantha voice separately also doesn't solve
my problem, I can select vocolizer in the code factory menu, but when
going to synthesizer and selecting vocalizer is how I get into that
nice endless error circle, so there is definitely still work that
needs done on these voices.  I'd be demanding my money back with no
doubt if I'd had this experience after paying for these things.  The
seven day trial is nice, but it isn't of any use to me, because
nothing here is working, so I'm just going to write it all off as a

Re: Some accessible free radio streamer

Gene
 

I downloaded the newest version from the web site.  I downloaded the version for 32 and 64bit machines, though that shouldn't matter.  I installed it as a portable program.  It isn't clear to me what is and is not free.  I got no message about a trial period, and the station list is there.  But I see nothing for looking for a new station list.  I didn't install the version because I already have an earlier installed version.  If that would have made a difference, I don't know.  I'ts beginning to look as though the software works even though the message during installation says it is no longer free.  It may be that getting updated station lists is what you are paying for. 
 
But my point is that those who want to use the program for free may still be able to do so if they are willing to do without updated station lists.

    When you install the latest version of tapin radio it does say this softwhear is no longer free do you want to continu? If you do chose to continu you will get a 14 day trial so you can see what stations work and what stations won't.

Don't know that this thread is appropriate for this list, but: I also wonder what client, and what server still has usenet lists?
Thanks.

Usenet? Usenet is pretty much just a cesspool now. A shame, because it was pretty awesome back in the day.

Hi



The package is in a zip format it is about 300 meg or so for the whole
package. There is a run time file you need to click on and after that it is
the tts voices need to be installed.

The link to the drop boxs account is
https://www.dropbox.com/s/zthyyh9kef7repx/Speech%20Platform%2011%20engine%20and%20voices.zip?dl=0



I also have the speech hub package but the add on needs to be installed
after speech hub has been installed.



the add on can be found under the following section in windows c: drive then
program files x86 then speech hub then nvda add on then just do the usual to
install it the add on i mean.



the drop box link is

Hi



I do have the whole package of voices for speech platform if you are
interested along with the run time tingy to get those voices working.



I just looked on my windows 10 creators update machine and there under the
synth section is one for speech platform so i have it installed.

I only have the one voice installed called sarah but i could install more if
i can see it.



if you are interested i can drop box them.

They are the complete set so will have other languages as well apart from
english.
