Re: Converting JAWS Dictionaries

 

Pele,

           If you happen to know Linux/Unix, the awk command will be very easy to use to do the conversion.

A JAWS dictionary line has the fields, in order:  Actual word|Replacement Word|Language (0x09-English)|Synthesizer|Voice|Language (0 is default)|Case sensitive (0 - No, 1 -Yes)
For the JAWS dictionary, the fields themselves are DOT enclosed/separated, UNLESS, the actual word starts with a dot, in which case it's a comma used for the separator.

The NVDA dictionary file layout is simpler, and the fields are tab separated.  The first field does not have a separator before it.  They are arranged as:
Matching word or regular expression|Replacement|Case Sensitivity (0 - no, 1 - yes)|Type (2 - Whole Word, 1 - Regular Expression, 0 - Anywhere)|Comment (All comments are pre-pended with a #

For both dictionaries, there is a single entry per line of the file.

Have fun with it.  It doesn't appear to be particularly complicated.

hi Brian

Thanks for writing.

As you say it is so easy, I will have a go at converting the
dictionaries myself.

Re: A question about Vocalizer

From what I understand Code Factory isn't maintaining Eloquence anymore. Is that right?


Re: Converting JAWS Dictionaries

 

Pele,

            None that I know of.  But the structure of the NVDA dictionary files is very, very simple.  If you happen to have a JAWS dictionary file that you can e-mail me as an attachment, I might be able to whip something up, though I won't guarantee it.  I don't know how Freedom Scientific lays out the JAWS dictionary files, and that's where the sticking point might be.  But if they're plain text like the NVDA dictionaries are, it shouldn't be all that difficult to figure out how to convert.

            It's going to be a long, rainy day here, so this might be a fun task to try.  By the way, anyone who has a JAWS dictionary file they're willing to share should feel free to e-mail it to me as an attachment using the Reply to Sender link at the end of this message.

Re: A question about Vocalizer

Sylvie Duchateau
 

Hello,

In addition to what Rui said, from a non commercial point of view, it depends on what you are looking for.

As I work in different languages, English, French, German, after I have tested both products, I prefer using Tiflotecnia's voices, as language switching works fine.

I also had the impression that the voices from code factory were less responsive.

If you like the eloquence synthesiser, you'd better take Code Factory's solution as you get the eloquence voices and the nuance voices.

Best

Sylvie

Once you adjusted the volume does the voice behave ok?

I don't have any SAPI 4 voices anymore to check.

It sounds like you managed to get back to a voice you can use, but if you
do set the synthesizer to something which doesn't work, two ways to
overcome it are:

1) Revert NVDA to the last saved configuration by pressing NVDA+CONTROL+R.
If all else fails, pressing this three times quickly will reset NVDA back
to factory settings.

2) Or you can change the synthesizer again, if you are happy to try doing
so without speech:
- Press NVDA+CONTROL+S to open the synthesizer dialog
- Press W for Windows OneCore voices or E for eSpeak-NG.
- Press ENTER. The new synthesizer should load and start speaking.

Note that this assumes Windows OneCore is the only (or at least first
alphabetically) synthesizer beginning with W and eSpeak NG is the only or
first beginning with E.

Quentin.

It sounds like you managed to get back to a voice you can use, but if you do set the synthesizer to something which doesn't work, two ways to overcome it are:

Hi guys



I was browsing the under development section and saw the add on for Windows magnifier. I knew there was one for windows 7 but no higher back then.


it looks as though this will work on windows 10

I seen this add on a little while back on the section under development.


has any one who has a bit more sight have a play with this add on and how well did it work?


I saw it when installed went up to 16 times magnification in Windows I thought it used to only be like 4 times at one time maybe windows 7 or did it change later on?


it seems to have a stable release number but is still under development. Is it been reviewed at the moment to go onto the main add on list? or are bugs etc still be ironed out?


The add on I am referring to can be found at https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/windowsMagnifier.en.html

 Has any one used it with the mouse and did they have any problems like windows locking up? or any ting like that.


There may be some members who could benefit from this add on when it gets released to the main list.


I was also wondering there may be others on this list who do not know about it and may help them.

Re: Trying to get a hold of AudioTheme iPhone package?

 

Hmmm not sure about iphones but I am in a torrent resilio of a lot of phones.

If anyone wants a package of anything just email me

If you have resilio sync about and care the read only is

BCY4PMASSMX6PTEVJXU7RQOL4KBAZI5NP

Its at least a couple gb in size.

Now I will have to convert this stuff some of it into something other than it is.

There used to be a nvda torrent sync with sounds on it but I didn't keep those but they were interesting.

I have no issues with the piano sounds myself.
