Eloquence and NVDA: automatic language switching


Gianluigi Coppelletti
 

Hi,

I'm testing the demo version of Eloquence by CodeFactory, and when I visit a web page in a language other than the default one, the synthesizer doesn't automatically switch to the language of that page. Obviously the check box concerning the automatic language switching is checked and with Espeak it works fine.

Am I doing something wrong or this option doesn't work with this version of Eloquence?

This happens with NVDA 2021.2 Windows 10 and Eloquence 1.11.0 just downloaded from the official website.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Bye.

In my experience, Espeak can automatically  switch languages but, Neither CodeFactory vocalisers  nor Window one coor voices can automatically change their languages. Sorry, I do not know about CodeFactory eloquence.

If you are talking about Eloquence in SAPI5 it will not have that feature...

I think it is SAPI5 itself that do not have it...

Thanks Rui,

yes, that's a SAPI5 synthesizer.

The automatic language switching is not the most important feature as i can create a profile to switch manually, but it is very useful for me. I'll think about it before purchasing.

Thanks again.

Thanks Rui, I know Vocalizer because they are popular here in Italy as well, but unfortunately I don't like human voices for my pc. I definetely prefer more robotic voices like Espeak or Eloquence. It's just a matter of preference and not of quality of the product, which is certainly a more advanced one than the voices that I prefer.

Thanks again for your suggestion.

Bye.

Actually CodeFactory SAPI5 Eloquence does have that feature, and it works here.

 

All the best

Thanks Steve,

then I'll ask CodeFactory what to do because it doesn't work for me. Just one more question... do you mean the SAPI5 version that you can use with other screen readers or the addon for NVDA which contains Vocalizer voices as well?

Thanks.

Bye.

The SAPI 5 version, or it used to work for me.

 

On Monday, I’ll turn back on auto language switching and see if it still works.

 

I have both the add-on and the SAPI 5 versions.

 

All the best
