getting a "please register this product" with the 7 day trial of the sapi eloquence demo


Sarah k Alawami
 

Hello. I am trying the 7-day demo of the eloquence demo and I tried to run it, but I get “please register this product” with the 7-day demo, and now it won’t reinstall as it has trouble installing a dll that is I believe installed.  I’m using nvda Nonvisual Desktop Access (NVDA)

Version: 2020.4, and windows 10 21H1 (64-bit) build 19043.1083

I don’t recall this being discussed before with the AtGuys product.

 

Take care to all.

I own the SAPI5 version. When it does that, I need to deactivate it and paste in the key and reactivate it again. It happens periodically, and I have no idea why, because I'm connected to the net when it happens, and I'm connected pretty much every day, so it shouldn't be missing a check. The addon Eloquence used to have issues, but I tried it pretty recently and it sounded exactly like the SAPI5 one. So if Eloquence is what you're after, you could always uninstall the addon and try that one. Doesn't solve your actual problem I know, sorry about that.

Well could be server issues, could be network dropouts who knows.

Actually I didn’t actually run the eloquence app first.  So now I’m fine. Except it’s not as expressive as I would like, I’ll post about that later.

I haven’t used the demo for a long time, but there is a way to see a lot of settings for SAPI 5 Eloquence.  You can open a program window.  I believe Eloquence is placed on the dessktop and pressing enter on the icon opens the window.  You may well find a setting that changes what you want.
 
I still have the icon on my desktop even though the demo expired awhile ago.  There is a field that says something like force pitch changes.  Perhaps that will affect what you want.

Nope, the intonation setting is missing. The thing sounds like a robot. I think you windows users call it inflection.

 

Tc all.

I don’t know why.  When I tested the default, it had inflection.  I never tried to change it but it inflected more or less the way JAWS does.
 
There is something wrong somewhere.  Perhaps the developer would have suggestions.

Maybe. I’ll start a new thread later. I sware though the slider on both sapi and add on are missing. I won’t worry about it tonight, I’m sleepy.

codeFactory never implemented inflection slider on their eloquence product. I think you are confusing codeFactory eloquence with IBM-viavoice-tts, which is an abandoned unsupported completely separate product, even though it sounds almost exactly like eloquence, and which, in fact, does have an inflection slider along with other sliders to change many more voice parameters. 


Sarah k Alawami
 

I might contact them then with some feedback.

By the way if you look at the atguys page the sapi link is not on the CF page under education products. I had to google for it, which is odd.
