It stated, on the purchasing site, that the license is for three computers. Good enough.




But will these voices work on a portable installation of NVDA? Like if I put NVDA on a USB stick, so as to use it on different computers, could the Acapela voices follow the stick? Or, are they tied to the computer, by some onboard serial numbers, that you only can use them in a "permanent" installation?




Hope my query made sense.




If these voices cannot be used with a portable version of NVDA, does there exist any voices that can - apart from the ESpeak voices?

Had a look at this, as it sounded quite tempting. But one big question:


I did see absolutely no voices for any of the Scandinavian languages - Norwegian, Danish or Swedish. Acapela in general has voices for all the three languages, but I did not see them listed in the package offered for NVDA. Is there any way for a person to get hold of a Scandinavian package, or even a package for the Northern-European languages which in addition would mean Finish and Icelandic?


How about German and French voices, for those users who are living in such areas?


In short, does Acapela offer other packages for NVDA, and where would I find them?


Thanks for your feedback,


David

Re: key labeling with NVDA

Gene
 

It is called fake because it doesn't tell you that the command has been carried out.  It just tells you that you executed the command that makes it say whatever it is saying.  It's nice to know you have executed an intended command in terms of knowing you used the correct keys and didn't make a mistake.  But you don't know if the command was carried out. Usually it is but you can't be sure by hearing the speech.

I am asking under this subject instead of under the Acapela subject.


When are we going to get access to the MS Mark voice? I have used it under other programs and it is very responsive and sounds very good to my ears. It is free and we don't have to pay for it.


When will we get access via NVDA?


Thanks.

So the only way to purchase is with Paypal and in Euro's?

Re: Firefox Browse & Focus Mode

 

Gene,

         The longer I work with screen readers the more I adopt your opinion, but we are, from what I've been able to tell, in the minority.  I actually think it's easier to know that "I'm always in state X unless I choose state Y," than having to think about what the software did in response to something I may not have actually intended to do (and we all know that happens).

         So long as users know that they can turn the automatic mode-switching feature off, each "side" can have the best of both worlds, so to speak.

I wrote you privately, but I lost my license in a computer crash, and need to know how to get the code back.
 
Can you please write me off list with more information?
 
 
If you can't find my license with that e-mail address, let me know. I have another one I may have put it under. I'd rather not disclose that address publicly though as I don't use it very often.
 
Again, please write me off list.
