Question about transferring espeak data between NVDA & Braillenote touch version

Jessica D <jldail13@...>
 

Hi,

Yesterday, I bought eSpeak for my Braillenote touch.

I’m really enjoying it, and its totally boosted my productivity.

I’m now using eSpeak with NVDA, and was wondering if it was possible to transfer my settings and other data between the 2 versions?

 

Thanks,

Jessica

Ok, that's really odd. All of them were slow on the typing echo, including
2017.4, which is what I was running previously without issue. I'm confused
to how that could be possible. :/

I agree, eSpeak needs lots of work, still. But the worst part of Open Source is that we all talk about it, but nothing gets done, we all wish, but never act, and there is only one person working on eSpeak. I know, we can't all program. But, with Windows 10, there are the OneCore voices, created by Microsoft which we can use, so we are no longer limited to eSpeak.

It is very interesting to here it pronounced quite correctly when it is
a stand alone word, as is the case in the first line of my message.

Hi, Joseph,

 

I tested it and unchecking speech interrupt does cause NVDA to lag for me so I checked it again.

Interesting!  I just checked, and mine is checked but I have no typing echo delays at all!  As snappy and responsive as ever.

Re: Typing Echo Change with 2018.1

Gene
 

I see that I mistakenly said it should be unchecked by default.  It should be checked by default.  You want speech interrupted in most cases.  So what is causing the problem?  Is the update acting as though the setting is unchecked when the update is done?  Then when you uncheck and check it again, does it properly have this setting off?  It sounds as though that is what is happening.  That when the update occurs, the setting acts as though it is unchecked, and then unchecking and checking it again causes it to perform correctly.

Re: Typing Echo Change with 2018.1

If it is checked by default, that is an error and the default setting should immediately be changed to unchecked.  In most situations, speech should be interrupted when typing.  It is only in very specific settings, such as when playing MUDS or when in a chat room where you want to type while reading a message that this setting should be checked.  See the following discussion:

Re: Typing Echo Change with 2018.1

Gene
 

I just tried this.  There may not be a delay.  .  What may be happening is that since typing doesn't interrupt letterss, then letters get behind because every letter is announced and it isn't interrupted while the person is typing.  so if you type faster than the letters are announced, you can get ahead of what is being read.  Is typing interrupt on by default in the new build of NVDA?  If so, there is no question that the setting should be off, as it was until recently by default.   
 
I'm testing on a slow computer but later tonight, I'll test on a fast one.  At this point, based on this one computer, it looks as though what I said has a good chance of being correct.  No delay, but if you type quickly, you get ahead of speech when every letter is announced in full as you type.

Re: espeak and pronunciation of some words

Adriani Botez
 

Dear all,


I think eSpeak has to be adjusted from scratch. It is very hard to get to a point where every word is being pronounced correctly. This is a matter of accent and phonemes which are very limited in eSpeak development.

If we begin to assess every word in eSpeak, we will find thousants and thousants of words which are mispronounced. Don't forget eSpeak supports more than 50 languages. So, developing this synthesizer word by word is not a long term solution.

So, in my view, if another speech synthesizer becomes free (i.e. eloquence or vocalizer), every user will change to it unless eSpeak is being vastly improved from scratch.

Re: Typing Echo Change with 2018.1

Adriani Botez
 

Hello,

this setting is available since years. It makes sense for people who are using a braille display because they can read a part of a document in braille while listening to another part of the document reported by speech.

Or for people who must type something manually, for example text strings which cannot be copied. This function works well together with the setting "allow skim reading in say all". That setting can also be toggled in keyboard settings.
