activating the Sally Ivoina voice from harpo software

How do i activate the Sally Ivona voice from harpo software? I’ve already  purchased a lisense for the voice.

Although I personally have a lot of interest in this process I would think this is a bit outside of the scope of NVDA as you’d need to use whatever process Harpo uses to activate their  software.

It is, but since synthesizers are so closely related to any given screen reader, the following is in the group description:  "Discussions about which programs are accessible using NVDA, NVDA add-ons, NVDA tutorials and documentation, and configuring synthesizers or Braille displays for use with NVDA are also permitted."

Personally, I think this is a job for Harpo Tech Support and they should be the first point of contact.  A report back on what is actually involved would be appreciated.

Forgive me for asking what may be an obvious question but did they not send you any instructions via email? In most cases companies that sell software, particularly specialized software, send a follow-up email with some sort of activation instructions. I’ve never dealt with Harpo but after looking at their Web site I was tempted to consider them as they may be one of the few sources available for SAPI-compatible Nuance voices.

My apologies. As my dad used to say … “when you’re right you’re right …”

Hi Ray,

 

To activate the Harpo Voices, find the Ivona Voice Pack Register Code application on your start menu and open it. Then simply enter the activation code you were given and enter. It will give you a message that it was successful.

Then you can use the voice.

 

Thanks.

Mr. Deenadayalan Moodley
