What are the differences fetween versions 1 and 2 of the Vocalizer voices?

I contend that the methodology is not logical or intuitive.

You probably downloaded some of the Vocalizer 2 voices, and you probably downloaded separate files for the “large” synthesizer “persons.”

They DO NOT show up; however, you will doubtless see something that says “Vocalizer,” and it may even say (factory settings) or something like that.

Nevertheless choose that, press Alt + V.  That should put you into relative proximity to the place where you can choose a person.  Pick your person and choose the other settings you want.

Then, tab (do it several time).  Eventually, you will get to “Save as.”

Then, pick a name that relates to the person you chose, e.g., “SusanSynth.”

Then press ENTER.

You will now have a synthesizer called SusanSynth that you can pick from the list of synthesizers.

If you were using Eloquence, you should be able to change voice profiles and they will show up.  However, you can’t have Vocalizer voices from version 1 installed with voices from Vocalizer version 2.

Re: silencing Jaws during self-voicing programs

JAWS key, spacebar, S. This is speech off. Speech can be restored the same way. You can also create a profile for a particular app, wherein speech off is the default.

How do I get Jaws to stop speaking while running programs that have
their own speech? For example, Kurzweil has a Jaws built-in way to take
care of this. I would like to play my BlindGamers games without having
to shut Jaws down completely. Can this be done? Thanks.

Furthermore, both parameters can be set either globally or on a program-by-program basis. I use typing echo on spreadsheets, because mistakes are hard to trace after the fact, but turn it off everywhere else.

Hi, Carol. If you press the INSERT or JAWS key as it is sometimes called by JAWS users, with the number two on the numbers row, you can change whether JAWS echos back characters, words, or nothint at all. If it is set to echo words, the word will be spoken right after pressing the space bar, or a punctuation key.

As to setting numbers to be spoken as single digits, this setting is under JAWS Settings, INSERT plus six on the number row. Then navigate down to Text Processing, and change the setting to single digits, controlled by synthesizer. That should allow speaking of single digits.

I hope this helps you.

In Window-Eyes, it was possible to have words spoken after pressing
space or punctuation or the spacebar. It was also possible to have each
digit of a number spoken immediately when typed, such as 123 being
echoed as 1 2 3. Is this possible with Jaws? Also, I read earlier that
someone had asked if there was a way to get Jaws to stop saying alt
tab. If that question was answered, I did not see a reply. Of course,
I have gone through over 300 email messages today, and it is very
possible I might have overlooked the reply. So, I am asking again,

Synthesizer preferences are totally subjective. The Vocalizer voices are all pretty responsive now. They sound nice, for the most part, but when they miss a word, they miss it badly, and I'm talking about some pretty common words.
Eloquence and DecTalk Access both, by comparison, sound a little robotic (That's because you've never heard an Echo or an Echo PC from Street Electronics in the 80's). Eloquence and DecTalk, to me, are the clear champions when it comes to responsiveness. I think that, on average, they do a better job on common words than do the Vocalizer voices.
In the last decade, for various reasons related to work, I have had to switch back and forth between JAWS and WindowEyes, and my wife has a Macintosh.
My synthesizer of choice is still good old Eloquence.

Re: New member with a question about JAWS and Kindle

Carol Smith
 

Hi,

From what I have seen, text is, of course, not visible. The reading keys work for listening to the book with the Kindle voices. Much of the menu information is visible, but I do not see where to put your information in if you plan to register online. Also, if you click on the button one tab after the register button and you have already registered before, that button is now a deregister button, although it does not say that. Please note, I am not using the most current version of Kindle because it does not suit my needs.

If you’re using JAWS, you should be able to just hit enter on your keyboard after going to messager and you can scroll through your messages. They’re listed in a table thing where the person’s message appears on the left column and some checkbox or something is in the right. I’ve found that if you click the person’s message, about twice—press enter and then spacebar, you’ll be on that person’s message. You can then do anything you want like viewing the messages in the conversation, going into the actions and either archiving/deleting/doing other stuff—this takes some work arounds but I’ve got that covered too. If you want to delete a message, you can hit enter or space on the action thing, arrow down to delete, and press enter again. However, to get into where you can delete things or archive them, you have to tab and arrow righyt to your selection before pressing space. It’s a bit of a pain, but that’s what I’ve seen to work so far. Need any more help, feel free to e-mail this list.

Re: adding voices

Marquette, Ed <ed.marquette@...>
 

This question comes up all the time.

I contend that the methodology is not logical or intuitive.

You probably downloaded some of the Vocalizer 2 voices, and you probably downloaded separate files for the “large” synthesizer “persons.”

They DO NOT show up; however, you will doubtless see something that says “Vocalizer,” and it may even say (factory settings) or something like that.

Nevertheless choose that, press Alt + V.  That should put you into relative proximity to the place where you can choose a person.  Pick your person and choose the other settings you want.

Then, tab (do it several time).  Eventually, you will get to “Save as.”

Then, pick a name that relates to the person you chose, e.g., “SusanSynth.”

Then press ENTER.

You will now have a synthesizer called SusanSynth that you can pick from the list of synthesizers.
