Re: vocalizer voices not there

The voice download page I am using is at:

are you using some other download source?

In the synthesizer and braille manager if they don't make an
expressive/direct distinction then I believe it is direct (as
expressive is newer).

I downloaded vocalizer express premium allison;
I did not see a vocalizer direct anything,
only a realspeak solo direct and all of its voices.

As far as the synthesizer manager is concerned,
I have eloquence, realspeak, and vocalizer synthesizers checked,
however, I do not see language until I get to the select profile menus.

I hope I am not confusing you;

Please advise.

I am talking about in the synthesizer choice drop-down before you even
select the language.

There are Vocalizer Expressive versions 1 and 2 as well as Vocalizer
Direct, for jfw 14 I am pretty sure that only vocalizer direct is
going to work but I suppose expressive version 1 might as well.

In any case the name (direct or expressive) will match the name in
synthesizer and braille manager, I do know expressive version 2 only
became available with jfw18.

Do you have the Vocalizer synthesizer enabled in Synthesizer and
Braille Manager?

To check go to the jaws menu (jaws+j) then the utilities menu and
select Synethsizer and Braille Manager.

Open the synthesizers group in the tree and check that vocalizer is
present, if notgo to the add/remove/change button and go through the
process to add the synthesizer driver. You'll have to restart jaws
again if you had to add the driver.

If vocalizer is there I suspect you chose the wrong vocalizer from the
voice download page (there are three vocalizer synthesizers on the
download page but I suspect only one is going to work with jfw14 - I
don't recall which one).

hey guys:

I have jaws 14 and windows 7.

Tonight I downloaded and installed the vocalizer alison voice using the
typical instll button versus the custom button;
when it finished, it told me it was successful;
I then restarted jaws like it told me too;
I next went into voice-adjustment from the jaws window options menu and
did not see any reference to vocalizer express alison etc at all in the
voice profile list.

earlier in the day I installed tom and jill realspeak solo direct voices
with no problem,
and those do appear in the voice profile list.

did I miss something here?

Please advise.
