AW: installation failure, still

Eigeldinger Simon <simon.eigeldinger@...>
 

I am sure it‘s not this but maybe a secure desktop message comes up before nvda gets launched.

So if no screenreader might be active wich i don’t belive this could be the problem.

 

Greetings,

Simon

Hi Group,

Forgive me for being ignorant, but just what kind of program is the Cube?

You can just install the new version right over the old version LOL! If
that does not work, then you can uninstall the old version. One thing I
forgot to mansion! You have to go to the short cut on the desktop and press
applications key and up arrow to properties and find the check box that says
run as administrator and check that in order for the Qube to work. That is
very important. Take care all.

I agree, my mail is now full of stuff I don't want to read even some of the mods are now straying! we all do it but remember folks some of us get loads of mail and really hitting the delete key over and over again gets annoying.

Moderators, just a suggestion: what about creating an NVDA chat subgroup
for those who are members of this list, and who want to keep things off
topic for the main list? I personally don't mind using my delete key,
but would rather use it for topics I'm just not interested in rather
than trying to figure out which topics of departed from actual NVDA

Christo,

Am also based in SA, and, yes, eSpeak is my choice when using NVDA,
partly due to it handling multiple languages, but, also, since while
it's not particularly natural sounding, it is definitely very
clear-sounding, makes it easy to be pretty sure what you're hearing it
say, etc. - which is also pretty important when working as a
programmer/software developer.

In other words, while understand why some people might prefer somewhat
natural sounding voices, they're definitely not of too much interest to
some of us, all the time...<smile>

Stay well

Afrikaans. And may I say, the quality of ESpeak's Afrikaans is actually

I won't mind if the developers do away with ESpeak, but before that
happens I want definite proof that the replacement program has, at

Re: ESPEAK

P. Otter
 

hi all,
Despite the poor quality are a lot of languages ​​supported intelligibility
when nvda will be installed, nvda begins with the native language.
after installing you always can make a choice for another synthesizer or keep espeak.
it is not a good idea to remove espeak from the nvda installer.

so keep espeak in the installation of nvda, that's my opinion.
cheers
paul otter

I think espeak /espeak ng needs to stay because no other synth does support so many languages.

Re: ESPEAK

Christo Vorster
 

It makes sense to me. The English world often do not comprehend the difficulty we, from non-english countries, experience with speech packages. There was a time, when I used JAWS, and it wasn't long ago, that I had to read Afrikaans documents, even books, with JAWS and the Afrikaans was genuinely terrible. I know some of my friend sometimes make use of Dutch, but that still isn't the answer.

I don't mean to say that the English speaking people are unsympathetic or anything like that, but sometimes one don't think about it in that way.

Greetings

Christo

Re: voice question

Just because it is developed by Microsoft does not mean it is compatible with newer versions of Windows if it is too old.  I don’t know if installing a version of SAPI that is too old might damage something in new or recent versions of Windows.  But you can’t assume when you install something like that that is  like eighteen or twenty years old.

It's freakin' SAPI. I seriously doubt that it's going to damage windows in any way. After all, wasn't SAPI created by Microsoft?


Thanks,

Re: installation failure, still

Did you say that it used to work?
If not then I'd be suspicious that Vista has not got the latest service pack installed.

Not having anything running Vista here, that is the best I can offer you.

Good evening/morning list. This is Marv here. First, I am running a laptop with the latest nvda file and vista home premium. I cannot get nvda to install. I keep getting a failure message in the log file. I really does not tell me very much. Any ideas on what I might try would be appreciated; thanks in advance.
