Re: anyburn query

Peter Tesar
 

thanks for the AnyBurn suggestion. My initial observations are good. JAWS identifies the buttons and combo boxes.

There are some graphics buttons that I have to figure if they are important and need labeling.

Re: Languages

Soronel Haetir
 

I'm not sure that it can be done with a single hotkey but you can
change voice profiles with jaws+scrl+s, and you can create a voice
profile that uses a different language synthesizer by default.

But I would say that is generally the wrong approach, instead I would
add Japanese to the region and language settings control panel, and if
you then switch between the system regions programs that can deal with
that will automatically pick up on it.

If you add an additional language profile like that you can then
switch between them with alt+left shift.

When you hear bookmark, press the right arrow to open that up. Next, down arrow through them or press first letter navigation. When you hear wich one you want, press enter to open it up. Take care.

Re: Qube

Gary King
 

Andre,
One more to take a look at is TWBlue. You can find it at

http://www.twblue.es/

It comes from Spain, but is translated to other languages including English. Apparently, it's updated quite often. Not sure what the latest stable version is. It was recommended on the Window-Eyes list and was said to be free.

Not sure why the Qube is not working for you. I just went to the Qube item
on the Desktop and pressed Enter. I then used the Control Shift Windows and

the letter n combination to bring up the New Session dialog. Since I didn't

want to start a new session, I canceled the dialog. I only have the Twitter

session set up and named.

The Qube doesn't look like its been updated in a while. I'm still receiving

tweets, but I haven't tried to send one lately.

If you can't get the Qube to work, you might have to try one of the other
Twitter clients.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Is there a step to open TheQube session which opens Twitter to get the

After you start the Qube, you won't find it by Alt-Tabbing around.
Ordinarily, it doesn't show anything on the screen. What you need to do
is
to read thee Qube Readme that you can find in the Qube submenu in your
Start
Menu. Everything is done with combination keystrokes which you will need
to
learn by reading that Readme file. One of those combination keystrokes
displays a tweet on the screen for JAWS to read, but normally you just

Hi Qubers, .help!



TheQube was downloaded and installed on my Win7, 64 bit, J16 machine.
However clicking on the desktop icon or going through all programs and
clicking on theQube. Nothing happens. The Qube is seen in the Task
Manager
but alt tabbing around does not go to any running app/Twitter client.



I read through the documentation and executed the steps to open Twitter,
sign into my account to get a number generated by Twitter to connect to
TheQube. I did this several times but Twitter did not generate a number
for
theQube that I could find.



Have uninstalled and reinstalled the Qube several times and still no luck.



Any ideas would be appreciated.



Thanks

Spam Blocking Programs

Mike B <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi All,

I am looking for referrals for good but, accessible spam blocking programs
that'll work well with Jaws, Outlook Express, & Windows 7. I know I can
search for them but, I want to get referrals for programs that are being
used or, have been used successfully by list members. All advice / input
will be greatly appreciated. Thanks much.
Take care.

Subject: looking for a sound editing program

Hi gang.

I recently upgraded from jaws13 to jaws16, with an option to go to jaws17
sometime in the future.

I was using the jaws scripts for the goldwave sound editor. However, it
appears that jaws has dropped support for this fine program.
I am familiar with audacity, but would like to find another sound editing
program that will work with jaws. Does anyone know of another accessible
alternative?

Thanks.
Bob

Is there a step to open TheQube session which opens Twitter to get the

Andre,
After you start the Qube, you won't find it by Alt-Tabbing around.
Ordinarily, it doesn't show anything on the screen. What you need to do is
to read thee Qube Readme that you can find in the Qube submenu in your Start
Menu. Everything is done with combination keystrokes which you will need to
learn by reading that Readme file. One of those combination keystrokes
displays a tweet on the screen for JAWS to read, but normally you just

Re: A wrinkle in the voice profile dialog; Dectalk Express, response from Emic, synth incompatible with JAWS?

Adrian Spratt
 

I found a solution that might interest other listers. The voice profile dialog asks if you want the synthesizer to be used for "all contexts" of JAWS or specifically for the PC cursor, JAWS cursor, announcements, and so on. I had the setting at "all." No option appeared to set the tone. However, I experimented by changing the setting from "all contexts" to just the PC cursor. Then, and only then, an option appeared in the dialog enabling me to change the tone.

It looks like I can make the change stick in only one JAWS context at a time (not also the JAWS cursor, messages, etc.), but it's a start.

Dennis, I remain interested in the Emic synthesizer, if it could ever be made to work with JAWS.

Hello Adrian,
Tech support is correct, that the chip described must be connected to a
micro-computer such as the Arduino so that it is equipped to receive and
process data from a USB connection, similar to your DEC-Talk unit, which I
assume uses a 9 pin serial cable. I have now looked through the
documentation they provide for their chip, and I don't see a command for
changing the pitch of the chosen voice. I assumed that it had such a
command, (and I still think it does), because in one of their demonstrations
their chip is singing, which must require pitch changes. I am pasting below
all the commands they have listed for the product. I will keep looking.

table with 2 columns and 14 rows
Emic 2 Command Set
Sx
Convert text-to-speech: x = message (1023 characters maximum)

Command Details
Sx: Convert text-to-speech
Convert the text string passed by the host into synthesized speech. The text
string is limited to 1023
characters and should terminate on a clause or sentence boundary as
indicated by a full stop '.' or
comma ',' punctuation mark. If the text is longer than the allowable limit,
it will be truncated and may
result in unintelligible speech output.
Emic 2 expects characters that conform to the ISO-8859-1 Latin character set
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO/IEC_8859-1).
See the Special Characters section, page
10,
for details
on entering accents, foreign characters, and symbols.
The audio will be output from both the SP+/SP- speaker connection and 1/8"
audio jack. The LED will
remain RED while the text-to-speech message is being played.
Terminal Example:
:SHello! My name is Emic 2. Nice to meet you.
<audio output>
:
BS2 Example:
' Send command and the text string to convert to speech
SEROUT EMIC_TX, EmicBaud, ["S", "Hello! My name is Emic 2. Nice to meet
you.", CR]
' Wait until the command is completed
SERIN EMIC_RX, EmicBaud, [WAIT(":")]
Dx: Play demonstration message
Play one of Emic 2's built-in demonstration messages:
0: English Introduction
1: Singing "Daisy Bell"
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daisy_Bell)
2: Spanish Introduction
Note that each demonstration message is fixed with specific voice, audio
volume, speaking rate,
language, and parser settings and cannot be modified by the user. All
user-configured settings will be
saved prior to demonstration playback and restored afterwards.
See the Sample Text Strings section, page
11,
for the actual text strings used for these demonstration
messages.
Terminal Example:
:D0
<audio output>
:
BS2 Example:
SEROUT EMIC_TX, EmicBaud, ["D0", CR]
SERIN EMIC_RX, EmicBaud, [WAIT(":")]
X: Stop playback (while message is playing)
Immediately stop the currently playing text-to-speech message. This command
is only valid while a
message is playing. No carriage return (CR) or linefeed (LF) is required
after the command byte is sent.
Terminal Example:
:D0
<audio output>
X
:
BS2 Example:
SEROUT EMIC_TX, EmicBaud, ["D0", CR] ' Begin playing demonstration message
PAUSE 1000 ' Let the message play for a bit

Parser Selection
Emic 2 provides a choice of text parsing engines: Epson or DECtalk.
Both will process incoming text strings and generate synthesized speech, but
there are differences in
control and customization of the resulting output. Each parser's specific
functionality is incompatible with
the other. Choosing which parser to use ultimately depends on what sort of
speech output you desire for
a particular text string.
See the Sample Text String section, page
11,
for examples that use specific features of the Epson and
DECtalk parsers.
Epson Parser
The Epson parser is the default setting upon Emic 2 power-up. It allows
on-the-fly, dynamic changes of
emphasis, pitch, voice selection, and speaking rate to take place within a
text using embedded mark-up
control symbols:
\/ Decrease pitch
/\ Increase pitch
Increase speaking rate
<< Decrease speaking rate
__ Emphasize the next word
## Whisper the next word
:-)x Select voice (x = 0-8) (See the "Nx" command, page
6,
for corresponding voice names)
DECtalk Parser
The DECtalk parser is intended for advanced users and allows the finest
control and customization of
speech output by providing direct access to the internal parameters of the
DECtalk 5.0.E1 text-to-speech
synthesizer engine.
Dynamic customization using the DECtalk parser requires the correct usage of
specialized commands and
their associated parameters. Incorrect usage of the DECtalk commands may
result in improper or
unintelligible speech output. Please refer to the Epson/Fonix DECtalk 5.0.E1
User Manual available on the
Emic 2 product page
(www.grandideastudio.com/portfolio/emic-2-text-to-speech-module/)
for full
command details and phonetic symbols.
Only a subset of the DECtalk commands are supported by the Emic 2
Text-to-Speech Module:
[:comma] Set the length of a comma pause (in milliseconds)
[:dv] Customize voice parameters (save option not supported)
[:mode] Set how text is processed/parsed (no e-mail parsing supported)
[:name] Set the current speaking voice (numbers only: 0-8)
[:period] Set the length of a period pause (in milliseconds)
[:phoneme] Enable phonemic interpretation of subsequent text
[:pitch] Modify the pitch of uppercase letters
[:pronounce] Set the type of pronunciation for the subsequent word
[:punct] Set how punctuation marks are handled
[:rate] Set speaking rate
[:say] Specify when speaking begins
[:skip] Skip a selected part of text pre-processing
[:sync] Makes a command synchronous to allow it to be processed before
synthesis
continues
A large archive of songs intended for use with the DECtalk 4.40 or earlier
text-to-speech synthesizer
engine can be found at
www.theflameofhope.co/SONGS.html.
Some commands and/or phonemes used
in those text strings may need to be modified in order to work properly with
the newer DECtalk 5.0.E1
version implemented by Emic 2.
Special Characters
Emic 2 expects characters that conform to the ISO-8859-1 Latin character set
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO/IEC_8859-1).
Along with standard alphanumeric characters, the
character set also contains accents, symbols, and foreign characters
(ranging from 0xA0 to 0xFF) that
may not have specific keyboard keys assigned to them.
Emic 2 provides an easy method to enter single-byte hexadecimal character
codes from any host by using
an escape sequence "\xhh" (where hh is two hex digits). For example, to use
the letter ñ (n-tilde, which
has a hexadecimal value of 0xF1), enter the text "\xF1" within your text
string.
On the Windows operating system, if the desired character is unavailable on
your keyboard, you can
insert the character directly by pressing a special key combination: Hold
down the ALT key and enter the
four digit decimal equivalent of the character in the numeric keypad section
of the keyboard. For
example, for the letter ñ (n-tilde), press ALT-0241.
On the Mac OS X operating system, most of the special character codes in its
default MacRoman
character set are not compatible with the ISO-8859-1 character set. Thus, if
you try to enter special
characters directly from a keyboard using OS X, Emic 2 may return an error
or speak characters you were
not expecting. In this case, it is recommended to use the above-mentioned
escape sequence.
Other operating systems may also support direct insertion of special
characters. Please refer to the
specific operating system documentation for details.
Sample Text Strings
This section contains sample text strings that demonstrate varied variety of
speech outputs from the Emic
2 Text-to-Speech Module. To use, first ensure that the correct parser is
selected. Then, copy the desired
text string and pass it to Emic 2 with the "S" command.

JAWS?


Hi, Dennis and listers.

First, can you by any chance suggest how I might incorporate this command
string into my system?

Second, I wrote to the manufacturer of Emic, the company which produces
the synthesizer you alerted me to. Unfortunately, they believe the synth
won't work with JAWS. I wonder if you, or anyone else on the list, can
think how the problem might be overcome. Here's the text of the company
rep's response:

I am not familiar with JAWS readers however from what I've on Youtube and
Google I don't believe it does. Mainly because the Emic text-to-speech
module requires serial communication from a device such as a micro
controller either a Basic Stamp, Propeller or an Arduino. It has to be
triggered in a very specific way which is why you need a microcontroller.

Subject: Re: Dectalk Express, pitch higher in JAWS 17

Hi Adrian,
Seems weird, but perhaps Jaws is sending a command string to the DEC talk
when Jaws loads. I'm posting a link below which will take you to a page
which discusses, demonstrates and has some documentation for a current
text
to speech chip which is sort of the current DEC talk. There is a DEC talk
manual on the page which should give command strings for the chip which
may
still be valid for your DEC talk. The link is:

http://www.grandideastudio.com/portfolio/emic-2-text-to-speech-module/

I will keep pondering this one, and let you know if I think of anything.
best,
Dennis

Subject: Dectalk Express, pitch higher in JAWS 17


I'm trying to figure out how to restore the pitch of my preferred voice,
Paul, in JAWS 17. It is much higher than in previous versions of JAWS. I
don't know why this should be, since I wouldn't have thought JAWS had
anything to do with pitch. I find no pitch control in the JAWS voice
menus, other than for uppercase letters. I'm unaware of any pitch control
in Dectalk Express itself.

I've experimented with the other voice options on my version of Dectalk
Express, but I can't stand any of them. also, I've set the speed setting
to exactly the same rate as I've had it before.

This is obscure for most JAWS users, but does anyone have any ideas?

Re: Qube

Andre Jarreau <andre.jarreau@...>
 

Hey Gary,

What am I missing?

Per TheQube documentation. "The first time you run TheQube after
installation, you are presented with the new session dialog. Select the type
of session you would like to use and then press tab to give this session a
name. You will probably want to set TheQube up to work with Twitter first.
We will describe the Twitter session in..."

I don't recall seeing a new session dialog box after or during the
installation process. Further, TheQube was reinstalled several times.

After installation what I tried. Made sure to click on TheQube icon. then
pressed control-shift-win-N to open a new session but no go. No session
opened.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Andre

Is there a step to open TheQube session which opens Twitter to get the
Twitter code needed by TheQube?

Andre,
After you start the Qube, you won't find it by Alt-Tabbing around.
Ordinarily, it doesn't show anything on the screen. What you need to do is
to read thee Qube Readme that you can find in the Qube submenu in your Start
Menu. Everything is done with combination keystrokes which you will need to
learn by reading that Readme file. One of those combination keystrokes
displays a tweet on the screen for JAWS to read, but normally you just
listen to them.

Hi Qubers, .help!

However clicking on the desktop icon or going through all programs and
clicking on theQube. Nothing happens. The Qube is seen in the Task
Manager
but alt tabbing around does not go to any running app/Twitter client.



I read through the documentation and executed the steps to open Twitter,

Have uninstalled and reinstalled the Qube several times and still no luck.

I recently upgraded from jaws13 to jaws16, with an option to go to

I was using the jaws scripts for the goldwave sound editor. However,

I am familiar with audacity, but would like to find another sound
