Re: NVDA 2019.3 RC 2 is released

 

Hmmm, to be honest compaired to the range of voices, the 70 dollar cost for the vocaliser and eloquence addon is fine for what they are.

For sapi eloquence is 70 dollars and for vocaliser its 115.

I remind all users thats for every language and voice if you buy via atguys at least.

If you want something a bit better or performance based the orpheus voice high quality can be nice though a bit low volume, search for orpheus on the net.

But if you want to be all nostelgic, the old orpheus voice from miridian1 sounds like at least in synth mode like the older gemini or juno synths from dolphin computer access or dolphin oceanic back then.


They also can run quite fast.

If you want something a bit better maxiaids does have at least on its books the neospeech paul and kate voices from 2011.

These are 116 dollars us.

Everything else can be gotten from nextup for 35 bucks a voice.

Cereproc has 25 dollars per voice and 10 dollars for novelty voices.

But its per voice not a lot.

Readspeaker which was neospeech offers a subscription for about 300 dollars a sapi voice because of quality.

The realspeak original version sapi voices are still about.

Rh voice on github has a sapi voice and its ok.

On windows their speech platform while having a few shortcomings at least is clear.

If none of these works, email enablerehab@..., and pay what you want for the dectalk sapi voices.

You will get varying volumes, but if you don't want to pay for a voice and still want eloquence like voices this is as close as you can probably get.

Of course thats officially, if you want eloquence unoficial version, we can't stop you getting it.

But obviously you can't get official support for it, you can't in fact do anythhing with it on this list, but you could unofficially make it python3 ready if you want you just can never have it officially recognised ever!

Somewhere there is if you really are that sad the old flite voice but its really bad sounding.

Finally as long as it doesn't crash there is speechhub but I was never impressed with it and its performance and now I have eloquence and vocaliser official as well as orpheus 3+ I have probably enough voices right at this moment.

Later on I may buy neospeech from maxiaids, and if I still want voices later on I may buy the acapella voices but I think I am almost done with voices for now.

One can have to many voices to be bothered with eventually anyway.

Re: NVDA 2019.3 RC 2 is released

Quentin Christensen
 

Firstly with rate boost, you can have rate boost on and speech rate less than 100%.  EG if 100% is too slow for you with rate boost off, turn rate boost on, drop speech rate down to 30%, and increase speech rate from there until fast enough.

With NVDA 2019.3, I wanted to clear up the "I will lose all my addons" comment.  It's true that add-ons have needed to be rewritten or updated for 2019.3.  The majority, at least of the main official ones, have been updated, some are still being worked on, and others may not be updated.  You can find the list of the status of each here: https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/nvdapy3.en.html

We know there are people using an old illegal version of eloquence which was distributed for free.  We know some like to debate whether it is "illegal" or not, but either way that one isn't supported in 2019.3.  I don't want to discuss the pros and cons of that add-on, but I thought it is worth highlighting that for users coming from that add-on, there are options.

Firstly, if you are using Windows 10, you might try out the "Windows OneCore" voices - it's the default for new installations but also worth trying if you haven't lately - especially since it's built into Windows so doesn't cost any extra.

There are also add-ons which do have a one off fee including a bundle of Eloquence and Vocalizer voices by Code Factory, or Vocalizer by Tiflotecnia, and you've likely seen Rui from Tiflotecnia here in the group.  They all have demo or trial versions you can check out before needing to pay for anything: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/wiki/ExtraVoices

For some add-ons (speech and otherwise), you may need to specifically download the version which is compatible with 2019.3 separately, so it's worth having a look at the Addons page https://addons.nvda-project.org/index.en.html for the addons you use to check.

If there is an add-on you use which isn't updated, do write to the developer to encourage them to update their add-on.  You can also write here and ask about the functionality you really need - it may be there is another way or another add-on being worked on which may do what you need, or someone willing to update or help.

Regards

Quentin.

Sarah, I figured out what I needed to change when I listened to your reply again. I needed to change the standard speech rate down to about 40 and then turn on the voice boost. It is working great now! I really appreciate this list so very much.


Thanks to all.

I forgot to ask one more question. I notice with the speech synthesizer I am using I cannot get it to go as fast as I did with Eloquence. I have it at 100 per cent but it is still not as fast as Eloquence was. If I keep this synthesizer is there some way to work around this. The boost rate option is way too fast for me even at the slowest rate.

Thanks.

Re: NVDA not so laggy on File Explorer

Roger Stewart
 

You can make an installed copy from a portable copy and vise versa.  Think you just open NVDA menu and find Tools and Install on this computer.  While running your portable copy, just open the NVDA menu, then tools, and in there you will find install nvda.  This will do it for you.\

Just to say that my initial feedback on installing NVDA 19.3 RC2 is that there has been a dramatic improvement in the lag that plagued  previous installations of NVDA when trying to open large file directories in Windows file Explorer (Windows 10 19.09 ).  This problem appears to have pretty much disappeared so far. I used to have to use the work around of loading Narrator to review file names in a windows explorer  window until NVDA would catch up and start talking again.

This was not a problem with other screenreaders.

It appears now that is also not a problem with NVDA – I don’t know if this was an anticipated improvement but I thought I would report it anyway.
