Hi

Well, not strictly NVDA based, but all the same.
Having given up using the tablet with NVDA, I launched narator with a case of morbid curiosity.
To my surprise, it is very straight forward to use, all gestures work as suggested, navigating is simple and straight forward.
I'm able to do basic things very easily, launching apps, browsing the internet, etc. It's just a real shame that typing is exactly as standard typing is on iOS, i.e. having to double tap each letter. If this was fixed, this would not be a bad screen-reader at all in my opinion, based on early views.

If anyone knows if the typing can be fixed, or if anyone would like a demonstration, please let me know either way.

Hi

Certainly I'll be returning the unit, but I won't be buying one with a keyboard.
I wanted something small enough to put in a jacket pocket so I could read on the bus, on the train, etc.
Something that allowed me to read with eloquence.
Of course, a lot of the tablets with keyboards simply look like small laptops, and I already have an 11 inch macbook air.
Oh well, who knows what I'll do.

Re: Touchscreens?

You know...

Out of all the people who have said touch screens are not working very well, and those, including myself, who've either agreed to make audio demos proving this, or have! Made audio demos showing it, those who swear to God, quote unquote, that it quote: just works, have been incredibly reluctant to make any demos showing their side of it working correctly. Hmm, I wonder why this might be?

Ya think?

Re: is there any option with NVDA to READ SINGLE DIGITS AND NOT A GROOUP OF DIGITS

This works a treat:
Open NVDA menu, Preferences, speech dictionary.
Press enter on voice dictionary, then activate the Add button .
Enter the following:

Pattern: (\d)
Replacement: \1 (Note there is a space after the 1 which you must enter)
Comment: Speak numbers using single digits
Leave case sensitivity checkbox unchecked
Select 'Regular Expression' from the Type Grouping combo box.
Activate Ok button to complete the entry
Activate OK button to exit dictionary manager.

I would guess he wants to be pretty sure at least a message has been

I'd assume it'd be best to check the archives to see what was sent and

Re: Mary TTS in other languages

If its just about what voices sound good or natural or not, I could probably help with that. I am learning Spanish, and know a little German, but I could compare SpeechHub’s speech with other speech engines, coupled with my knowledge of the language.

First the SpeechHub project is live and well - I maintain it and will no doubt do further development in the future.
My last major development was last June with the introduction of SpeechHub support for MaryTTS 5.
With MaryTTS 5 other languages can be added in a modular fashion where in MaryTTS 4 it was very cumbersome.
This upgrade to MaryTTS 5 was a major task.

MaryTTS is essentially a research project in a German university and like all research projects some bits are more practical than others.  For example with the English voices (which I understand) it took some time to work out which voices work reasonably well  and which do not. With other languages (which I do not understand) this is more difficult as I would need a native speaker to do the assessment for me.

So I am afraid at present, SpeechHub with MaryTTS it is only in English.
When I get the time and inclination to do further developments, I shall ask for native speakers of the specific languages I would be interested to help.

This upgrade to MaryTTS 5 was a major task.

MaryTTS is essentially a research project in a German university and like all research projects some bits are more practical than others. For example with the English voices (which I understand) it took some time to work out which voices work reasonably well and which do not. With other languages (which I do not understand) this is more difficult as I would need a native speaker to do the assessment for me.

So I am afraid at present, SpeechHub with MaryTTS it is only in English.
When I get the time and inclination to do further developments, I shall ask for native speakers of the specific languages I would be interested to help.

Hi,

the Mary TTS in SpeechHub only offers english voices.
I know that there are a lot of other languages, i. e. German, for Mary TTS available, too.
Is it possible to get these languages in SpeechHub Mary TTS?
Is it difficult to add additional languages to Mary TTS or is it possible to do it myself? I have no knowledge in writing software.

Yours sincerely

Arno
