Hi

 

 

There are 2 packages in this zip file.

 

 

one is the speech platform synth and voices there are quite a few languages there.

 

You need to install the run time file first then the synths.

 

 

the other one is RH voices and synths .

 

 

I will leave it in the drop box for 24 hours or so and you can download it from https://www.dropbox.com/s/9kh3aip9atldlho/synth%20packages.zip?dl=1

 

 

 

The speech hub package page can be found at

http://www.speakon.org.uk/SpeechHub/public/docs/NVDAClient/index.html

 

there you can find out more info about it  and its synths/voices.

 

 

you will need also to download the latest add on for 2020.1  or it might

be the version before.

 

 

The synth package will need to be installed first then you must install

the add on for nvda to see those synths/voices.

 

 

the link to the page where you can read more about it can be found at

http://www.speakon.org.uk/SpeechHub/public/docs/NVDAClient/index.html

 

 

The other one I just copied off my how to add additional components page

but the voices are at the bottom of this page can be found at

http://www.cross-plus-a.com/balabolka.htm

 

 

This was the page it came off which points to other free and paid

synth/voice packages at

http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/how%20to%20install%20additional%20nvda%20components.html

 

hope it helps.

Re: Automatic Column and Row Header Reading

Sam,

 

Have you any blank columns separating blocks of columns. If so, you would need to set the column headings on the first cell in the heading row of each block to make NVDA call out the column headings for that block.

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

Re: looking for a free synthesiser

 

Hmmm well there is pico, but thats low quality.

There is rh voice found here.

https://github.com/Olga-Yakovleva/RHVoice

That may or may not suit you.

If you add ms voices from narator you may get some good ones.

Finally enablerehab@... is the address you can email for dectalk, they only ask you to pay what you want for it.

Some of the languages are quite quiet but that may work for you.

Its sapi5.

there is flite but thats really bad, there is speech hub and you could try those.

There is this.

https://www.nvaccess.org/post/high-quality-voices-available-for-nvda/

There is a wiki article on the speech synths for the reader but I can't seem to find it.

Re: looking for a free synthesiser

Hi there: Is it a language barrier with your synth? Is that why you are finding it difficult to upgrade to windows ten?  I had to upgrade to ten. My 7 box died.  The sound card burned out and some of my usb ports quit working.  The computer was funtionable. I had no audio and it was badly slowing down.  A sighted worker took it from me. He asked if he can have it after he put my stuff on this system off the hard drive. I said sure. I gave him the windows 7 disks. He scrubbed it and he used it for his video games.  He put in an external sound card and disabled the one I had there.  Not much longer after that the hard drive went and he just recycled it.

Re: looking for a free synthesiser

Hello. First, Codefactory has a SAPI 5 version of Eloquence that you can get for a price. I don’t have the price on the top of my head, but if you google Eloquence for NVDA code factory Eloquence. Another add-on they have is the Eloquence and Vocaliser expressive add-on for NVDA which also Codefactory makes, and it contains Eloquence and Vocaliser in one add-on. But as for free voices, the only free voices that I know of are TruVoice, and the Microsoft Speech from 1999 with Mary, Mike, and Sam. A slight correction. I think you meant windows one core voices. If your' on windows 10, NVDA doesn’t use ESpeak as the default voice. Instead, you get the one core voices by default if your on windows 10.
I hope this helps. Thanks, Sky.

Hi good people:
I am in ee of a free synthesizer for NVDA.

Before now, I used the I used the auto language for eloquence. I
didn't know that that program was a cracked one, and it no longer
works with NVDA.
I am not comfortable with the default speech of NVDA which is ESpeak,
because I don't understand the speech, and it is even too low. I also
know of narrator, or Microsoft API5, but I am also not comfortable
with that too. That synthesizer is also too low.
So, are there any free other synshesisers that I can try out.
At the moment I am managing the 40-minute version of JAWS.
Regards.

Re: nvda not speaking program/icon on the desktop when pressing first letter

 

Hi,
I suspect NVDA is not being notified about selection changes, sometimes
caused by an add-on or a setting interfering with what NVDA is supposed to
do. To test, try restarting with all add-ons disabled, and if that solves
the issue, we can move onto isolating individual add-ons.
Cheers,
Joseph

The original message doesn't say there is no speech. It gives one specific
condition where there is no speech, when you use first letter navigation in
a list. Since there is speech, the possible solutions don't apply.

I have no reason why no speech occurs at that one specific time. Using read
current line should easily solve the problem and the command takes almost no
time to execute. It may be possible to find the reason by examining the log
but there are some problems that are so minor and so easily worked around
that they aren't worth solving, though you may, if you wish to, pursue it,
of course.

Hi




I am sure you would of checked the following on the computer.




One that his speakers are plugged into the right whole and turned on.




On the computer the sound is not muted.




Press the windows key + letter R to bring up the run dialogue then type in
sndvol then press the enter key.




The next screen that comes up will have the master volume make sure it is
right up so you can hear it and not down on zero.




There is a box under it if checked it will mute the sound so make sure it is

un checked.




If you can see nvda is running but not talking under that section I think
there is a slider to make it louder there.




Also check when nvda is running that under the synth settings in nvda you
press the nvda key + ctrl key + the letter S to bring it up.




Make sure under the synth section that it has a synth there and not set to
no speech if it is set to that change it to e speak or another synth
package.

Hi All, I am using NVDA 20.1 on a client's windows ten pro laptop. When on
the desktop or in a list of programs or files, NVDA doesn't speak the name
of a program or file when pressing it's first letter. However, the cursor
does go to the location. I know this by arrowing up and then down. I tried

maximizing but didn't cause any change in behavior. Any ideas to resolve
the problem? Thanks in advance.
