The song “Keep Talking” has samples of Steven hawking speaking through his synth. Don’t really know what it is but, it sounds rather like a Dectalk to me, with some slightly different inflection.

Venom’s album Cast in Stone also used a sample of the speak and spell saying “I win”. I laughed when I recognised that.

 

Anyway like I said in a previous message, it uses the same chip as the Echo speech synth. Yes, it sounds different, but that’s because of how the chip is programmed. You could make some of the echos sound like this too but it usually took more tweaking and effort than it was worth.

I did some research and found the answer to this question through Wikipedia.

 

. Limp Bizkit's arrangement is notable for featuring a Speak & Spell during the bridge.[10] This, together with a new verse and an extra chorus, replaces the rock theme of The Who's version.

For those who do not know what a Speak and Spell is, it was a hand-held device made in the late 1970's by Texas Instruments as an educational tool. I had bought one for my Great Niece.

There is a good article on Texas Instruments and the speak and spell on Wikipedia as well.

Hi,

I know that some of you really know all the synthesizers, and there is this synthesizer used in a Limp Bizkit song, it spells out limp.

I would like to know the name of the synth used.

I think it sounds like the one in the movie War Games but I'm not sure.

Yes I think you need version 3, from memory to work on Windows 10.

It is extremely easy. Just hit the add button, then select the key you want to change from a drop down list and then tab to the next drop down list and nominate the key you want to replace it   with. In this case the application key

–  the list is alphabetical but this  key might be preceded with the word special in the list.

Then get Sharp Keys to write to registry and then restart windows.

For example On my keyboard I always change the right alt key  by the space bar into a right windows keys.  The reason I do this is that most of the useful windows key commands that I use are on the left hand side of the keyboard.  Off the top  of my head I can only think of window key M and Windows key command I use  which uses letters from the right hand side.  In contrast there are loads on the left hand side. I find it easier then to use commands like windows E, windows T,  Windows D, windows R,, windows S,    windows X, windows a and B, using my right hand to hold the new windows key and hit the letter keys with my left hand.

My fingers get mangled if I try to do all this from the left windows key.

I know I miss out on a few alt type commands but in my experience you can more often just press the left alt key and then just keep on pressing keys.

Please tab until you find Date and time settings and press spacebar which will open another dialog box and there after pressing tab key few times, you will find an option –additional time & date & regional settings from where you can add another clock. You can specify the time zone list to select accordingly.

Hi,

I would like to share the steps to make JAWS announce time for two time zones from the system clock in the notification area if any one finds it useful. We don’t need to use any third party app for this purpose now.

1.            While on the Notification area/System Tray press Insert + 6 on the numbers row.

2.            Type  Verbosity.

3.            Arrow to Configure Verbosity levels.

4.            Press F6.

5.            Select the verbosity level you   you are currently using. In my case I am using beginner verbosity.

6.            Press Space.

7.            Type T for tool tip.

8.            Next Press Space to check this option.

9.            Tab to OK and Press Enter.

10.          Press Shift + F6.

11.          Now Press Windows B to go to the Notification area.

12.          Arrow to the clock JAWS should read the two clocks.

 

Thanks

Meesha

Very glad it worked– I did see this option on the Microsoft Store  but I was not sure you would be able to use it.  I am especially pleased it is accessible with Jaws. Not all apps are though I think the situation is improving.

We need an Apple Vis type website with category lists of programs and Microsoft Store Apps Which are confirmed  to work with Jaws.

There is something  called NVDA Road tested Programs on Accessibility Net which is pretty much guaranteed to provide options for Jaws as well but somethings are accessible with Jaws and not NVDA and vice versa.

There used to be a Programs page on the old Jaws User Mailing list website but this seems defunct now and will not load here.  Tom Lorimore’s White Stick website will not be update given his recent sad death. I don’t know if anybody else knows of a similar resource?

VFO Should really host this  for the community I guess but if anybody has a web page that could be used I would be happy to provide some program suggestions and comments.

As a workaround have you tried separate World Clock  applications or Website?

For example

https://greenwichmeantime.com/timepiece/world-clock/

Once you have set  a website like this up to your desired time zone you can set it up as a shortcut on your desktop or even, with a bit of further fiddling and editing of the shortcut, put it on the windows 10 Taskbar. Let me know if you want instructions on this.

In terms of apps rather than websites I think you will need to search for World Clock  apps rather than clock apps as normal clock applications will just provide the standard feedback from the system time.

You probably cannot do it with the JAWS F12 keystroke to check time, but if both clocks appear on your System tray in the bottom right of your screen, then you can try using Windows key B to get to the system tray, then arrowing left or right to hear the clocks.  I usually find focus is at the far left of the icons in the system tray, so it is fastest to arrow left and focus will quickly circle around to the far right of the icons where the standard system clock is.

QRead is a good little program that really doesn’t need much if any support to it to keep working at this point.

It would of course be nice for it to get more updates and features, but as is, it does a solid job with ePub and other formats. PDF too.

I stopped using FSReader since QRead can handle not only Daisy, but all sorts of other formatted books as well.

I simply run the portable version of QRead from my Google Drive folder and thus am able to have synchronicity for all bookmarks and reading positions across my laptop/desktops where I’m signed in.

I know Kindle for PC has supposedly gotten a lot better with Jaws, but I’m reluctant to lock myself into the Kindle format/eco system as not every book I wish to read I can find in Kindle format and in general, again, don’t want to get more tied into Amazon stuff for every single service.

In general though, it would be great to have an eBook reading program that can also support things like notes, highlighting, footnotes with screen readers etc.

Yes you are definitely right, QRead along with his other products has terrible support. Having said that QRead has been my eBook reader for years now and hopefully will continue to be so despite the fact that development seems to have ended. I also find QCast from the same stable works well on my system for the time being. They are the best of a limited range available for us I think.

 

Chicken Nugget has bit the dust and QFeed has also stopped working for me.

I think he is a talented programmer but has dreadful commitment to updating his software.

We are disadvantaged that the market eBook leader, Calibre, persists doggedly with a reading interface inaccessible  to Screen Readers.

 

On the other hand When I think about it at least 50% of the  other programs I regularly used were stopped from developing years ago, I use older versions of many programs but touch wood are still going strong. For example CDex 1.71,  Mp3DirectCut and Mp3Gain. I think some people  are still using WinAmp even though it stopped development years ago. I hope that QRead will be in the same category.

Hi David,

 

Well, you are probably right about QRead and heading levels.  But, I did not find footnotes and internal hyperlinks accessible with it.  Mostly, these limitations apply to DAISY books.  However, the biggest problem with QRead is that it seems to have been abandoned and no longer supported.  Several months ago, an email I sent to them was never answered.  Others have likewise reported that it is no longer supported.

I am sorry you have problems with  FS Reader but have heard other similarly complaining.  It does not sound like it is fit for purpose with eBooks.

 

I have never used FS Reader for eBooks- it certainly cannot cope with any of the  ePub books  I have just tried it with. I don’t have access to any text based Daisy Books to test it with. Where  do you get these from??

 

I am however, slightly confused by you saying QRead cannot handle heading levels.

I have just checked again with some ePub books, and provided the books have a heading structure these are easily accessed in QRead as normal by pressing control H which brings up the list of heading and allows you to navigate to them.

 

Balabolka is a free TTS based eBook reader which has a radically different interface and learning curve. You can however also access headings in this, as from memory Balabolka  creates  automatic bookmarks of each heading which you access with the, from memory F2 key but I would have to go back and check this.

 

With any web links in eBooks I always copy these out anyway but I suspect you are talking about internal links?

You might try disconnecting from the internet and see if that solves it.

Well, in that case, using such way out of date equipment and software, it may take a computer technician to figure out what is going on, but my guess is something is trying to update in the background which no longer can be updated; or you have something on there that is eating your CPU, but probably something trying to update.

You might try disconnecting from the internet and see if that solves it.

 

You are asking for major problems if it is connected to the internet since none of the important software is supported at this point.

Hi, it's Annabelle.

Has anybody had this happen to them? I know this may be off topic, but this strange thing just started happening, where Outlook 2003 seems to think my CPU power is maxed out at 50% which makes the fan spin faster, and I'm wondering if maybe I should dust the inside of my machine with a Datavac. This has never happened before, and I know that I've been running outlook 2003 with the same Spamaid addin, so I know it has nothing to do with that. I tried turning off Microsoft Security Essentials, thinking it had something to do with that, but nothing has changed. I tried renaming "Outcmd.dat", but still nothing has changed. What do I do next?

Regarding QRead, can anyone explain what the difference is between demo and paid ($30) mode?

And now for an editorial comment:

FS Reader worked very well for me for years. Now it is problematic. IMHO another FS product which is basic but instead we get bells and whistles. Terrific.

QRead is a good little program that really doesn’t need much if any support to it to keep working at this point.

It would of course be nice for it to get more updates and features, but as is, it does a solid job with ePub and other formats. PDF too.

I stopped using FSReader since QRead can handle not only Daisy, but all sorts of other formatted books as well.

I simply run the portable version of QRead from my Google Drive folder and thus am able to have synchronicity for all bookmarks and reading positions across my laptop/desktops where I’m signed in.

I know Kindle for PC has supposedly gotten a lot better with Jaws, but I’m reluctant to lock myself into the Kindle format/eco system as not every book I wish to read I can find in Kindle format and in general, again, don’t want to get more tied into Amazon stuff for every single service.

In general though, it would be great to have an eBook reading program that can also support things like notes, highlighting, footnotes with screen readers etc.

Yes you are definitely right, QRead along with his other products has terrible support. Having said that QRead has been my eBook reader for years now and hopefully will continue to be so despite the fact that development seems to have ended. I also find QCast from the same stable works well on my system for the time being. They are the best of a limited range available for us I think.

 

Chicken Nugget has bit the dust and QFeed has also stopped working for me.

I think he is a talented programmer but has dreadful commitment to updating his software.

We are disadvantaged that the market eBook leader, Calibre, persists doggedly with a reading interface inaccessible  to Screen Readers.

 

On the other hand When I think about it at least 50% of the  other programs I regularly used were stopped from developing years ago, I use older versions of many programs but touch wood are still going strong. For example CDex 1.71,  Mp3DirectCut and Mp3Gain. I think some people  are still using WinAmp even though it stopped development years ago. I hope that QRead will be in the same category.

Hi David,

 

Well, you are probably right about QRead and heading levels.  But, I did not find footnotes and internal hyperlinks accessible with it.  Mostly, these limitations apply to DAISY books.  However, the biggest problem with QRead is that it seems to have been abandoned and no longer supported.  Several months ago, an email I sent to them was never answered.  Others have likewise reported that it is no longer supported.

 

Bye,

Richard

I am sorry you have problems with  FS Reader but have heard other similarly complaining.  It does not sound like it is fit for purpose with eBooks.

 

I have never used FS Reader for eBooks- it certainly cannot cope with any of the  ePub books  I have just tried it with. I don’t have access to any text based Daisy Books to test it with. Where  do you get these from??

 

I am however, slightly confused by you saying QRead cannot handle heading levels.

I have just checked again with some ePub books, and provided the books have a heading structure these are easily accessed in QRead as normal by pressing control H which brings up the list of heading and allows you to navigate to them.

 

Balabolka is a free TTS based eBook reader which has a radically different interface and learning curve. You can however also access headings in this, as from memory Balabolka  creates  automatic bookmarks of each heading which you access with the, from memory F2 key but I would have to go back and check this.

 

With any web links in eBooks I always copy these out anyway but I suspect you are talking about internal links?

Subject: FS Reader 3 Crashing

 

Hi!

 

I am using JAWS 2019, fully updated.  I have a laptop running Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, and a desktop running Windows 10 Pro 64 bit - both fully updated.

 

When running FS Reader 3 on either computer, if I press JAWSKey+DownArrow to “say all,” JAWS crashes, then restarts and then FS Reader freezes.  On the laptop with Windows 7, most often FS Reader and JAWS both crash after starting FS Reader and then trying to open a book.  Even if by some chance FS Reader opens the book on the laptop, it then crashes as previously described.

 

I have tried two different readers - Bookworm and QRead.  Neither seems good.  For example, neither seems to be able to read hyperlinked footnotes nor handle heading levels nor internal links - as does FS Reader (when working).  Primarily, this is all with DAISY eBooks; although I have also tried ePub and other formats all with the same problems.

 

So, does anyone have any recommendations for another DAISY reader?  Or, does anyone have any solution to these problems with FS Reader?

 

Thanks,

Richard

I did not think about an on line scanner.  That should be the easiest and fastest method.

 

But, will an on line scanner that is designed to work on full-blown Windows, actually work on a PE?

You should be able to run the ones on that, just get on-line to update them, or run your own off-line scanner.

Note, since WinPE runs only in RAM, the updates will be gone when you shut down.

Unless you download the updates to a drive.

There is a network scanner there so you can get on-line.

Anti-virus is all you need at startup.

Did you ever install the registry hack that makes XP think it's a point of sale (POS) machine?

Microsoft continued with those updates to XP until at least last April.

Also, you may want to consider booting to WinPE just to scan your entire partition, sometimes viruses hide in the boot sector and can't be detected while the computer is running.
