moderated Re: Pronunciation changes in Vocalizer Expressive
Richard Turner <richardturner42@...>
I think the reason for this is that Vocalizer is parsing by paragraph, or at least by sentence, where Eloquence is parsing by word.
If you are trying to get a more human sounding inflection, you have to know the context, or rather, the machine has to know the context.
I have not gotten into the weeds with all the schemes for the Say all etc., but it could be there is a scheme that changes that behavior.
This is just my theory on why you get different pronunciations, it is not authoritative at all.

Yes, I have often found that words are stated differently in “say All” as opposed to reading by word. Vocalizer Expressive is the worst with this.
Sometimes while reading a document, I notice that my Vocalizer Expressive voices have odd pronunciations for some common words. However, when I stop and use JAWS to hear the specific word pronounced alone, the pronunciation is correct.
I *don’t think it’s an artifact of my own organic language processing <g>.
Has anyone else had this experience?
Yes You can insert pictures from Powerpoint directly. To do that, do the following steps.
1. open PowerPoint and find a blank presentation.
2. Press Ault+N to bring up the insert menu.
3. Press O to activate Online Pictures.
4. Once you pressed O, you can type in the image you want.
This is the quickest way to obtain images without going to IE or Chrome.
I hope this helps
