Re: Vocalizer Expressive sapi voices

 

Hmmm I do wander what you do when windows 10 updates so often to the latest feature update, do you have to deactivate the product first?

But yeah I am seriously thinking of this to 60 bucks is better than the acapella ones and I have been using scansoft for ages and ages now.

Unlike the Vocalizer expressive and eloquence for NVDA, from what I've read, you can supposedly transfer your license from your old computer to a new one if it updates.
If any of you are interested, ATGuys is the one selling the product. It's 115 dollars, but keep in mind, it does allow you to use the voices with any screen reader. When you compare it to the Sapi voices for Acapela that cost 299 dollars, it's a pretty good deal.

Re: a problem reading a pdf file

JM Casey <crystallogic@...>
 

It sounds like perhaps the orientation is set wrong for that particular document. I have seen this happen before and I think switching manually to landscape fixed the problem. But it was years ago and I don't think I can replicate this, now. I had Adobe Reader then, an old version, and looking through various options in Acrobat quickly, now, I cannot figure out exactly how to do this, so I see through google that there are some threads about it. I don't know, if any case, if this really is the problem. But you could try experimenting with it....

I don't mind adjusting an ini file, so long as MS doesn't keep mucking with it when there's an update. But yes, being able to put it in one's user data location would certainly be nice. And I do not know if this can be done at all. Anyone?

Is there perhaps a user specific location to place this ini file? Certainly in other OS there are both global and user specific setings files.

Also sure would be nice if there was a settings panel for adjusting these rather than the ini file.

Hi Melissa.

Yes, you can use notepad to edit the file. It's not enough to run notepad as administrator, though, assuming you are using Windows 10 at least. You will have to grant yourself permission to change the file by taking ownership of it using the attributes in the properties dialog. To be honest, I don't 100% understand how ownership rites in Windows 10 function. I got it to work, but it took quite a bit of experimenting, which is the reason I was particularly annoyed by Microsoft changing it back again. Essentially, you want to grant yourself "full control" of this particular file, which means you have permission to edit it.

Where exactly the file is depends on what you are using....whether you are using an older SAPI voice or the newer Core1 voices? Each voice has its own ini. The file I edited was at this path location:
C:\Windows\Speech_OneCore\Engines\TTS\en-US
And as it's the David voice I've been using, the name is:
M1033David.INI


The lines you are looking ror are these two:
IntonationPhraseBoundary=
SentenceBoundary=

I do not remember what the original values were at the moment, but I believe it's in milliseconds or something. I altered the sentence boundary to 350 and that seems a lot better to me, though you may prefer less of a pause. Play around and see what you get and what you like.

If you get stuck with the file attributes thing, there are resources on the internet that can help you. Someone else on the list may understand this better than I do. It's one of those things which I thought I was familiar with, but trying to edit a Windows ini file showed me that in fact I'm still unclear on how this totally works. Still, at least I got it to do what I wanted it to.

This licensing process is one reason I haven't made this purchase. I'd love to be able to have something easy to work and not to worry about if it will stop working or not after I made some update.

I'd be interested in using David--the pauses are what turn me off from doing so though. I thought I remembered hearing updating the ini file before, but can't find the email though I saved it.

What is the file? Where is it found? Where is the line found to edit this?Can one use notepad to edit the file?

I just installed qbittorrent. Unfortunately, I didn't keep the email
about how to make the transfer treeview accessible. I googled it,
but only got a page full of sponsored content and forum posts about
nvidia stuff. Google seems to be less now than it once was. IE,
NVDA and NVidia are not the same thing, sighs.

I can use object navigation to see what's in the tree, but given
hundreds of torrents, looking at each piece of info individually for
each one is possibly not the most efficient way.

Hello everyone.

I have been using Utorrent, or Mu-torrent, as it is sometimes
called. I ended up with some build of 3.5 on this Windows 10
machine. It is not totally unusable, but the ads have a tendency to
get stuck and crash the program. It also causes firefox to crash on
a semi-regular basis. I was even willing to “upgrade to pro”, to get
rid of the ads, but clicking on the link takes me to some silly
games page, and while I’m sure it’s possible to get to the correct
page from there, I got this inexplicable impression that the
developers did not actually want me to upgrade the software at all,
since they make the path so cryptic. In short, I think I would feel
more comfortable with a different client altogether. Of course, I am
looking for one that is very configurable and which plays nice with NVDA.
Have you fine folks any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

That's
true for Firefox as well. Also, I'm not sure what you want to do.
You appear to want to be able to save multimedia files without them
opening

in
Chrome or Firefox. As I said, there may be ways to do these things
you don't know about in both browsers even if there are no
settings. I can't discuss multimedia files in part because I'm not
sure just what kinds of files you are discussing and I may not have
tried to save those filetypes..
But in terms of files such as audio files like MP3s, in Firefox,
once the file starts to play in the browser, you can save it by
issuing the command control s, then using the save as dialog that
opens. I wouldn't be surprised if that is true in Chrome as well.

Please explain what you want to do in detail so people can address it.

You may want to live in the technological past indefinitely but you
can't unless you want to be increasingly unable to do things you do

Re: issue with google chrome 64 update.

 

It causes slowness in just about everything, because intel screwed up majorly we won't get any piece till we get new chips so if you want to stay with intel I'd wait a couple years till they release another chip.

For me its one reason I am moving to the competition, amd while it to has to contend with some of this is more resilient to most of this.

I just tried with Chrome Version 64.0.3282.167 (Official Build)
(64-bit) (Chrome says it's up to date), and with NVDA 2017.4 and also
the latest Next snapshot and I can press alt+left and alt+right arrows

the keystroke?

If you've updated anything lately, maybe restart it, and even the

then anyway).  Otherwise, are you using any Chrome extensions that

Sarah k Alawami
 

I'm quite new at these things but I tend to go a bit against the grain. What would happen if you just used it and ignored the mumbo jumbo about sanctions. Will you really get into trouble if you use the adobe suite? Why not just use it and ignore everything in the licence agreement, or use a proxy and pretend you are in the US. I do this when I need to shuttle my internet trafic to another state or country when my ISP is doing somethingn I don't like I'd say just use the software and don't worry about getting into trouble.

Chrome or Firefox. As I said, there may be ways to do these things you
don't know about in both browsers even if there are no settings. I
can't
discuss multimedia files in part because I'm not sure just what kinds
of
files you are discussing and I may not have tried to save those
filetypes..
But in terms of files such as audio files like MP3s, in Firefox, once
the
file starts to play in the browser, you can save it by issuing the
command
control s, then using the save as dialog that opens. I wouldn't be
surprised if that is true in Chrome as well.

Please explain what you want to do in detail so people can address it.

You may want to live in the technological past indefinitely but you
can't
unless you want to be increasingly unable to do things you do now and
limited in things you may want to do in future.

i did not say that chrome is not accessible, reading web pages and for
example gmail, is completely accessible and the quick navigation keys
are like firefox.
but its not very accessible for my need in customization and changing
settings!
in firefox is about:config
which has thousands of options and i could easily set firefox
according to my desire,
i searched google and found hidden options in chrome.
but could not find anything that wished to find!
about automatic openning multimedia files, its not just happen on my
system,
even this feature is on by default and by the grace of God, i could
find it in about:config
if i could not find this option for my firefox, i kept firefox 25
forever without update!
because this problem happened since firefox 26 that does not allow
downloading multimedia files without changing settings in about:config
by the way, did you try chromium and slimjet which i asked about them?

are
very usable, even though not fully accessible. Chrome is largely
accessible
and is very usable, though not completely everything is. But it's
usable
enough so that almost everything desired can be done except in the
case
of
add ons which may not be accessible, but that's the fault of the add

I'm going into all this mainly because your message may, if not

mslead others into believing Chrome is not usable and is not
reasonably
accessible. I don't particularly like the interface but the program
is
reasonably accessible and quite usable.

As far as playing audio files, Chrome does play audio. I don't know
if
it
plays what you are trying to play. I don't know what you are having
problems with but please don't state things as though they are facts

You will have to alter both the flags in the normal "advanced settigns" dialog as well as the hidden one, which you may have to get creative to get to. It requires a simultaneous mouse click and the pressing of shift-f2 on the keyboard. There is no other way to do it.

You need to be very careful of torrent software it can intervene in searches by using something called conduit, which as the name suggests adds commercial content to any search you do anywhere. You need to check for this or similar with malware programs.

I just installed qbittorrent. Unfortunately, I didn't keep the email
about how to make the transfer treeview accessible. I googled it,
but only got a page full of sponsored content and forum posts about
nvidia stuff. Google seems to be less now than it once was. IE,
NVDA and NVidia are not the same thing, sighs.

I can use object navigation to see what's in the tree, but given
hundreds of torrents, looking at each piece of info individually for
each one is possibly not the most efficient way.

Thanks.

Hello everyone.

I have been using Utorrent, or Mu-torrent, as it is sometimes
called. I ended up with some build of 3.5 on this Windows 10
machine. It is not totally unusable, but the ads have a tendency to
get stuck and crash the program. It also causes firefox to crash on
a semi-regular basis. I was even willing to “upgrade to pro”, to get
rid of the ads, but clicking on the link takes me to some silly
games page, and while I’m sure it’s possible to get to the correct
page from there, I got this inexplicable impression that the
developers did not actually want me to upgrade the software at all,
since they make the path so cryptic. In short, I think I would feel
more comfortable with a different client altogether. Of course, I am
looking for one that is very configurable and which plays nice with NVDA. Have you fine folks any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Is there perhaps a user specific location to place this ini file? Certainly in other OS there are both global and user specific setings files.

Also sure would be nice if there was a settings panel for adjusting these rather than the ini file.

Best Wishes,

Hi Melissa.

Yes, you can use notepad to edit the file. It's not enough to run notepad as administrator, though, assuming you are using Windows 10 at least. You will have to grant yourself permission to change the file by taking ownership of it using the attributes in the properties dialog. To be honest, I don't 100% understand how ownership rites in Windows 10 function. I got it to work, but it took quite a bit of experimenting, which is the reason I was particularly annoyed by Microsoft changing it back again. Essentially, you want to grant yourself "full control" of this particular file, which means you have permission to edit it.

Where exactly the file is depends on what you are using....whether you are using an older SAPI voice or the newer Core1 voices? Each voice has its own ini. The file I edited was at this path location:
C:\Windows\Speech_OneCore\Engines\TTS\en-US
And as it's the David voice I've been using, the name is:
M1033David.INI


The lines you are looking ror are these two:
IntonationPhraseBoundary=
SentenceBoundary=

I do not remember what the original values were at the moment, but I believe it's in milliseconds or something. I altered the sentence boundary to 350 and that seems a lot better to me, though you may prefer less of a pause. Play around and see what you get and what you like.

If you get stuck with the file attributes thing, there are resources on the internet that can help you. Someone else on the list may understand this better than I do. It's one of those things which I thought I was familiar with, but trying to edit a Windows ini file showed me that in fact I'm still unclear on how this totally works. Still, at least I got it to do what I wanted it to.

This licensing process is one reason I haven't made this purchase. I'd love to be able to have something easy to work and not to worry about if it will stop working or not after I made some update.

I'd be interested in using David--the pauses are what turn me off from doing so though. I thought I remembered hearing updating the ini file before, but can't find the email though I saved it.

What is the file? Where is it found? Where is the line found to edit this?Can one use notepad to edit the file?
Sorry for the barrage of questions.

Thank you
