Automatic Language Switching


Jonathan COHN
 

It is fairly straight forward for web developers to have multi-lingual pages, though in order for a screen reder to switch languages it is essential that the "lang" attribute be used to switch the languages. For Arabic and Hebrew languages that are written right to left, I believe one nees to set an attribute to tell the web browser that line orientation has changed also.

So:
<span lang="en> will set the text within the span to be English.
In Microsoft Word one needs to adjust the language in the proofing area of the ribbon.

I've noticed the opposite as well, some web pages supposedly en English
have bits that are in English but are using some other language to pronounce
them!

I think there you are a bit stuffed as its the page and the way browsers interpret it I suspect that is doing what you don't want it to.

Hello!
I have to read/write much in English, Swedish and Arabic. I have
purchased the Code Factory Sapi5 Vocalizer tts but although I check
detect language if there is say Arabic and English in the text when I
make say all or read line by line it misses the Arabic and speaks the
English words only, unless I read with ctrl+arrows only then I can
listen to both languages. Is there a solution to this problem and if
not is there an app that can mix synthesizers regardless of make and
whether Sapi5 or not say like auto tts on the phone but for windows?
Thanks.

Hello!
I have to read/write much in English, Swedish and Arabic. I have
purchased the Code Factory Sapi5  Vocalizer tts but although I check
detect language if there is say Arabic and English in the text  when I
make say all or read line by line it misses the Arabic and speaks the
English words only,  unless I read with ctrl+arrows only then I can
listen to both languages. Is there a solution to  this problem and if
not is there an app that can mix synthesizers regardless of make and
whether  Sapi5 or not say like auto tts on the phone but for windows?
Thanks.
