Re: voices and pitch


Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

Interesting. NOAA has used synths for weather reports for a while now. Their first was Paul from DEC; don't know what KIH43 uses these days, but it sounds good. Makes you proud as you run for the basement during tornado warnings.

You know, if they ever get the synthesized voices perfected, I wondered if they were going to put talking books on them.

Bye for now,

I don’t know if this has been covered by you Carol but, to change the pitch, that feature is under the spell upper case function settings.

Hi Sieghard,

OK, thanks. This makes sense. I will try it. I sort of like all of the cursors sounding the same, but I suppose it would have advantages with separate voices.

You can’t adjust pitch for the All Context voice, you have to be on one of the other 4, PC cursor voice, Jaws cursor voice, keyboard voice or tutor and message voice.

Hi Carol,



Try the following:

1. Press, Insert / Jaws key + J, to open the Jaws context menu.

2. Press the letter, O, to open Options.

3. Press the letter, V, to open Voices, or arrow down to it & press enter.

4. Press enter on, Voice Adjustment, & tab down to, Voice Adjust. Here you can make the pitch change amongst many other setting adjustments. Make sure to Apply & Okay your changes.

Take care, Mike.

Hi,

Although I am getting used to playing around with voices and their
settings, I have not been able to change the pitch for any of them. Is
this possible? For example, the Reid voice would be reasonable except
it is a bit too bassy. On the other hand, Glenn sounds better, but this
voice is too high to suite me. Is there a way I can change the
settings? Also, does pitch work for other synthes? Thanks.

Carol
