Re: Slightly OT: Hardware speech synthesizer

Brian K. Lingard
 

Dear Brian & List:

There is a USB edition of the Triple Talk hardware synthesizer. While many devices have their highest Baud rate as 9,600 BPS, newer Uarts such as the 16550 ones can easily run at 115,200 BPS, this over a plain old RS-232C serial port. Helps if you use hardware flow control rather than DC1/DC33 XX-On/x-Off software flow control. Hardware flow control is instant; X-on/x-off has to be processed by the sending computer.

Have no stats on what really nice-sounding voices such as the ones that shipped with the Dec Talk synthesizers do to CPU usage. If you find you want to use a really nice synthetic voice, you can purchase a hardware synthesizer; however, not all hardware synthesizers have really nice voices.

With modern PC speeds what they are, buying a PC with a moderately fast to super-fast CPU should be more than adequate to handle any synthesizer voice.

The real question though is this. Can they be more efficient in real terms than the inbuilt espeak?
I did some tests back in the XP days when I had access to one, and to me at least there was nothing much in it.
Of course, the old interface used a serial port on my old computer, so it could well be that this ancient device was a bottleneck.

I did not use this particular IDE but used Eclipse and more recently
AndroidStudio both also written in Java.

I did not use Jaws for some years but at the time Java support was very
poor, NVDA support is much better.

As long as you have Java installed the Java access bridge comes with it,
no need to install it separately.

Sometimes for some reason it is not activated and needs to be activated
manually.


Unlike the poor advice given in another message, the java updater places
a message on the tray when a new version is available and if you need
java, always update.

None of the browser need Java they are mostly written in C / C++.

The various security risks when running Java in the browser where fixed 
few years ago and if I am not mistaken from Java version 9 add ons are
not supported anymore.

Re: Not starting computer

Antony Stone
 

Firstly, do you really mean that if you press the delete key after that
message appears, nothing else happens? If that is true, I think your only
recourse is to take the machine to a computer hardware repair shop and ask
them to find out what's failed.

If that is not true, and pressing delete does get you into the Bios setup
screen, then the two most likely causes for the machine not starting further
which I can think of are:

1. Bios battery dead; computer has forgotten what disks it has installed and
therefore doesn't try booting from them.

Diagnosis - go into Bios settings and check date / time. If it's correct,
this idea is probably not the correct one. If date / time are incorrect (and
I mean *really* incorrect - by years), then this is likely what's gone wrong.

Solution - replace Bios battery, reconfigure Bios for the disks you have,
restart machine.

2. Hard disk failure; Bios tries to boot disk but disk has become corrupted or
has failed completely.

Diagnosis - boot machine from a USB stick or CD - a live Linux distro would be
good - see whether the hard disk gets detected and whether it can be read.

Alternatively, take the hard disk out, connect it to another machine which can
boot up, and see whether your disk can be read.

Solution - replace or reformat the hard disk and restore your files from
snapshot / backup.

By the way, this is definitely not an NVDA question.

Regards,


Antony.

NVDA issue with trees on Chrome

Ajay Sharma
 

Hey there,

I've been observing for quite a long time that NVDA does not find tree
views while in browse mode on Chrome, although it does find with
Tabbing.

On firefox / IE, NVDA announce "tree view" upon reaching the tree,
after that upon pressing Enter or Space we could interact with it,

so I am curious if any thing is being done for addressing this issue.
As there are more and more electron based apps are now coming in day
to day activities, which use chromium as engine, there all the trees
get skipped, which makes it hard to use.

Cheers!

Hi all,

I'm curious whether anybody else has noticed that some websites, admitedly relatively few, make a sort of beeping sound when cursoring down through the page? It doesn't happen when using say all.

This website is doing it when I visited it this morning:
https://www.movebubble.com/london/area-guides/2017/09/stratford-london-guide

It's kind of like the beeping to indicate percentage progress, but it is apparently not associated with any media loading, just the act of using the cursor keys to navigate up or down the webpage.

Thanks for any insight :)

Mot sure, if NVDA provides means of reading the asci value of a character, however, if it does, finding out the new character should be simple.

Yes, you are correct; Admin rights are required to install programs on a network PC.

Dear Noah & List:

Running a screenreader adds a fair bit of work to a PC as you have a software synthesizer. You could offload the work of speaking by using a hardware synthesizer such as a Doubletalk or Triple talk. Your laptop needs SSD not a mechanical hard disk with 8, 16 or 32 GB RAM. 32 GB is best if you plan to do video and/or audio editing & recording. The PC at your school may have as little as one GB RAM and a slow CPU. Giving the laptop adequate RAM ids, more important that high-performance CPU. Look for a laptop with a fast, but not necessarily Intel I8 speed. An Intel I5 or six CPU should work fine. You consume CPU cycles a lot if you do sound or video editing, recalculate mammoth spreadsheets and run many programs concurrently.
Web browsing is light work for a PC.
Download the Belarc Advisor from HTTPS://www.belarc.com. Run it on the problem computers at school. Lists the CPU chip, installed RAM, software licenses, everything worth knowing about the PC. Also gives information on the SSD or Hard Disk. Program is free for personal use.

Hi,
You can meet 40 plus NVDA add-ons at:
 
Some were inspired by feature suggestions for NVDA, others add features from other screen readers, still others make life easier for some users, while others are things only seen with NVDA.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hi all,
 
I’m delighted to announce the release of Virtual review 2.4 and Screen Curtain latest snapshot build (note that Screen Curtain is a proof of concept add-on). In case of Virtual Review, version 2.4 includes latest localizations from many language communities.
 
As always, the new updates are just an update check away (via Add-on Updater, which itself will get an update very soon).
 
Cheers,
Joseph
