Re: NVDA still freezing, don't know what the deal is

...What HAPPENED to the espeak voice? It sounds choppy and distorted (at least Linda does) and it was honestly hurting my ears.


And the Master snapshot doesn't have the braille table I'd prefer to use, which is why I got that other snapshot when I did. The newer more experimental table fixed the problem of emdashes being replaced by eight cells of nonsense that took up more space than necessary, and formatting representations, and missed contractions...


I can't use this.

I believe the new production version will be released in about a month.  However, I would expect the master snapshot to be probably stable or reasonably stable.  You can use a portable version if you want to evaluate it without installing it.  I haven't used new snapshots fir a while but my experience in the past has been that the snapshots I've used have been stable.  That doesn't mean that they all are.  They are versions still in development and not beta tested.

Hi,


The reason the driver was still trying to do something was that I had
used the old snapshot I had in conjunction with my display to read for a
bit, then had disconnected the display without resetting the "display"
setting in Braille Settings to "No Braille". As I said, it lasted
longer, but still locked up at the most inconvenient time...


Can I have a link to this master snapshot? And is this building toward
the next release or are some things not ready for that yet? If the
former, when is the next release? Is it some time this month, or next?

Re: very good news about audio conversion soft ware

It did a very clean install.  The program never asked me to install any thing at all.

Hi,


You might want to be careful about getting software from this site.  I too have used cdex for many years and wanted to ghet the new version.  However, when I clicked on the link Sophos stopped my browser and said that some mal ware had been found on that site.


I am now pondering whether or not I want to get it from there.

Re: very good news about audio conversion soft ware

For me, it did a clean install. I do have unchecki installed, but it didn't tell me it blocked anything, and I didn't see anything odd being installed at the same time. Of course I'll scan and check for viruses and malware, but the problems that have plagued previous installers seem to have not been present for me with this one.
In case the site doesn't throw a fit, and prevent hot linking, here is the direct link for the latest installer, though it's easy enough to follow links on the website to get to it anyway:

Did it just do a clean install, or did it keep asking you to install this, that and the other thing? If not, then this is good news and I'll try this newest one.

no our hopes are not dashed at all because I just got the new version.  The new version is cdex version 1.81.  I never got a message about malware.  I have the program and it works very well and faster than the older versions.

Uh oh.  That's the official site.  For sure.  When I went to the old site http://cdexos.sourceforge.net it redirected me to that cdex.nu site which looks exactly like the old cdex source forge site.  Maybe our hopes are dashed and the entire project has been highjacked?  It's been at least 10 years since the last upgrade as far as I know.

Hi,


You might want to be careful about getting software from this site.  I too have used cdex for many years and wanted to ghet the new version.  However, when I clicked on the link Sophos stopped my browser and said that some mal ware had been found on that site.


I am now pondering whether or not I want to get it from there.

Thanks Gene! Downloading now. :D

I believe the new production version will be released in about a month.  However, I would expect the master snapshot to be probably stable or reasonably stable.  You can use a portable version if you want to evaluate it without installing it.  I haven't used new snapshots fir a while but my experience in the past has been that the snapshots I've used have been stable.  That doesn't mean that they all are.  They are versions still in development and not beta tested.

Hi,


The reason the driver was still trying to do something was that I had
used the old snapshot I had in conjunction with my display to read for a
bit, then had disconnected the display without resetting the "display"
setting in Braille Settings to "No Braille". As I said, it lasted
longer, but still locked up at the most inconvenient time...


Can I have a link to this master snapshot? And is this building toward
the next release or are some things not ready for that yet? If the
former, when is the next release? Is it some time this month, or next?

Re: very good news about audio conversion soft ware

Actually, flac support could be built into 1.5 in a number of ways, but it was in 1.7 natively.  The only drawback to the native support is that it only went to flac level 8.  If the new one goes to flac level 16, that would be a huge bonus.

based on what I'm reading from the home page, windows 10 support is the major selling point along with upgrades to various encoders, localizations, improvements to tagging support, and something they describe simply and repeatedly as "bug fixes".  No actual feature improvements though I can only think of a few minor detales I would like changed or added.

Did it just do a clean install, or did it keep asking you to install this, that and the other thing? If not, then this is good news and I'll try this newest one.

Re: very good news about audio conversion soft ware

I wouldn't doubt it at all that there might be malware attached to this. The last time I tried getting a new version of CDEX it had all kinds of malware attached to it that it wanted to install. After rejecting about 7 screens of this junk, I aborted the install and am just keeping the version of CDex I currently have. It works just fine for me.

but even the unchecky information from the developer says that unchecky doesn't know about everything.  Using unchecky can protect you from a good deal of potentially unwanted programs.  It doesn't give you license to indiscriminately install anything.  You still should use caution and good practices.

Re: NVDA still freezing, don't know what the deal is

Gene
 

I believe the new production version will be released in about a month.  However, I would expect the master snapshot to be probably stable or reasonably stable.  You can use a portable version if you want to evaluate it without installing it.  I haven't used new snapshots fir a while but my experience in the past has been that the snapshots I've used have been stable.  That doesn't mean that they all are.  They are versions still in development and not beta tested.

Hi,


The reason the driver was still trying to do something was that I had
used the old snapshot I had in conjunction with my display to read for a
bit, then had disconnected the display without resetting the "display"
setting in Braille Settings to "No Braille". As I said, it lasted
longer, but still locked up at the most inconvenient time...


Can I have a link to this master snapshot? And is this building toward
the next release or are some things not ready for that yet? If the
former, when is the next release? Is it some time this month, or next?

Re: very good news about audio conversion soft ware

Gene
 

It may simply be one more case of a free program now incorporating potentially unwanted programs in it, which is becoming increasingly frequent.  Whatever the case, is there any reason to use the new program?  those who have used it might be able to advise if anything has been added that matters.

The SAPI version you can buy sounds as it should. it's the add on you can
purchase that has the annoying artifacts. I've seen contradictory reports
about whether the SAPI 5 version is responsive enough in Windows 8 and
higher it is claimed by some people, that SAPI 5 is not implemented
properly in Windows 8 and 10 and that SAPI 5 voices in general are not
responsive and that that is the problem. But I've also seen reports that
the SAPI voice works well. The only way you are likely to know is to try a
demo.

The vocalizer voices, from Tiflotecnia and Code Factory, are not SAPI5.
Eloquence addon from Code Factory, is not SAPI5.
Eloquence for Windows, from Code Factory, and sold by Tiflotecnia, is

That simply should not happen after all, lots of sappi 5 voices coexist.
Could the drivers be different, is one maybe newer than the other?

I think this is a question to ask the codefactory people.

So, if I bought the codefactory voices will I never be able to use the

Uh oh.  That's the official site.  For sure.  When I went to the old site http://cdexos.sourceforge.net it redirected me to that cdex.nu site which looks exactly like the old cdex source forge site.  Maybe our hopes are dashed and the entire project has been highjacked?  It's been at least 10 years since the last upgrade as far as I know.

Hi,


You might want to be careful about getting software from this site.  I too have used cdex for many years and wanted to ghet the new version.  However, when I clicked on the link Sophos stopped my browser and said that some mal ware had been found on that site.


I am now pondering whether or not I want to get it from there.

New website address as well:

Do not use filehipo or some other third party source like that or you will risk your computer getting extras you didn't ask for.

Re: NVDA still freezing, don't know what the deal is

Hi,


The reason the driver was still trying to do something was that I had
used the old snapshot I had in conjunction with my display to read for a
bit, then had disconnected the display without resetting the "display"
setting in Braille Settings to "No Braille". As I said, it lasted
longer, but still locked up at the most inconvenient time...


Can I have a link to this master snapshot? And is this building toward
the next release or are some things not ready for that yet? If the
former, when is the next release? Is it some time this month, or next?

Hey, before you have to format the computer. Why not run chkdsk and
then go
into the bios and see what can be the problem. I'd use format as the
last
resort. Or if you just want to do it and get it over with. then go
ahead and
do one. Good luck!

It just happened AGAIN. This time, with no Braille Display plugged in,
but still in Word. My sister described what she saw as "It's circling
and the screen is foggy," so I'm assuming it was hanging. It took longer
than normal to shut down, and longer than normal to start up properly,
and apparently Windows Explorer lagged for a few seconds. I don't know
how to recover my writing (I tried one of the previous times this
happened by restoring the auto recovery file from the Recycle bin but it
didn't work...).


Anyways, here's the log. I hope this time I can get an answer for why
this is happening. I'm getting seriously concerned at this point.

Narrator but it didn't work, though as I said, that didn't end up

warning repeats itself several times. In case each warning was subtly
different, I copied the whole thing. Don't worry about the Braille

that shows up first-that's about me starting up the computer and by
extension NVDA without my display plugged in and then saving the
configuration with default as No Braille.
