Can't always blame NVDA

Jackie
 

This week my computer became really unresponsive to key presses. It
was right after a Windows 10 update, so I was blaming some sort of
incompatibility between W10 & NVDA. I was going to roll it back, but
for some reason I decided to do another test first & plugged a USB
keyboard into my laptop. Guess what? All the unresponsiveness
disappeared! Just goes to show sometimes that events surrounding
things like unresponsiveness, ie, such as an update, may be purely
coincidental & merely serve to throw a smoke screen. Troubleshooting
can be a real b-word, & I guess it's just best to keep all the
possibilities in mind. This was addressed to no one in particular.
Just sharing an experience on a Saturday in hopes it might help
someone on their troubleshooting journey.

I notice there is yet another new version which seems to have removed that inaccessible new feature that did not really do very much but annoy people, so it looks like its back as it was again now. The 9 on the end of the version number is what to go for. it also did not attempt to install Avast either.

Hi,

I am curious, I could not follow the whole thread and bag pardon.

Where can I download it? Is there an Italian version also? Is there an android version too?

Or some one could send a sample in mp3 format so we could just ear the voice?


Thank you.

Re: RH Voice

Gene
 

It appears to be the same one but it now can speak many languages.  I strongly suspect that the original message made the voices appear much bettter than they are.  I may try one of the English voices but I'm skeptical of their quality after reading about them on the web site.

Re: Reading PDFs in Adobe Acrobat Reader DC

 
Edited

I tried the PDF reader built into Google Chrome. It worked, but, for example, I typed into the box to go to a page and press enter and attempt to read, NVDA doesn't seem to recognize that I have changed the page, but on screen I can clearly see that the page has change.
Is the problem I described in my first post a NVDA issue? Or an issue with recent versions of Adobe Acrobat. I remember in the past even untagged PDFs use to work properly.
Update: I tried downgrading to Acrobat Reader DC 2018 and everything seems to work properly now. How can I prevent Reader DC from automatically updating to the 2019 version?


Re: rh-voice

rh-voice is still being worked on. it was last updated in july 2018. 


Re: rh-voice

Josh Kennedy
 

yes the addon is compatible. you have to download the addon, install it, download a voice or two that you want, install it, restart NVDA and it will work. but honestly the sapi5 rh-voice has the best sound, and the android one works good also. 


Re: rh-voice

Josh Kennedy
 

the sapi5 rh-voice has the best sound quality. you have to install the sapi5 rh-voice, then install the language pack, and then install the voice you want. then restart NVDA and it should work fine. 


Re: rh-voice

Josh Kennedy
 

yes, rh-voice is free of charge. it is on github and it is also open source. and if possible i would love to be able to make my own voices for it, if the voice-building and recording process is easy enough and doesn't require lots of programming knowledge.

Hi,

I found a new voice for NVDA. It’s called rh-voice. Also discovered
the sapi5 version has the best sound. It’s fast and responsive like
Espeak. The bdl voice is my favorite of all of them. Best part is
this, somehow, you can make your own voices for it and even make new
languages, although making new voices for an existing language is
easiest. So if I can get the required sentences that have to be
recorded, I could have the keynote gold demo voice read all those
sentences into wave files and perhaps the author could build a voice
based on recordings of the keynote gold tts. I’m not sure if he uses
Linux to make the voices. And if he does, if the voice building
process is even accessible with the orca Linux screen reader. It won’t
be a 100% perfect keynote gold voice, but it’ll be very very close to
the original sounding keynote gold tts. And it’ll be a sapi5 keynote
gold voice and it could even work on android since rh-voice is also a
free android tts, works great with talkback. The website is:
