moderated Switching voice profiles according to your mood

Hi,

 

This can already be done.

 

If you press Control+Insert+S, you will be in a selection list of profiles.  Just press enter on the one you want to switch to.

 

If all your profiles are set up how you want, this is a simple switch.

 

All the best

 

Steve

Subject: Switching voice profiles according to your mood

 

Does anyone have experiences with changing JAWS voices or voice profile according to your mood? For example, reading in the evening it might be nicer to have an evening voice profile with softer tones and slower speed. I imagine the same could apply between switching things up to read a poem versus a work email. Perhaps it also requires having a custom Speech and Sound Scheme for each mood too.  I'm not sure how best to approach that, or even if others have been down this same road. It would be ideal to switch things for moods with only a couple of keyboard commands.

Hello David. Yes, I can install Voice Profiles.  I've made a new one called Evening Reading. Thank you. I'll also set up a new Speech and Sound scheme.
I don't really have a good grasp of the synthesizers or how they are different from the Voices that we can download. Can you tell me about that?


David Griffith
 

Yes this is easily done as long as you have set up the Profiles.

Simply press Jaws Keys plus control and S for speech profile and you can cursor down the list of available profiles and press enter on the one you want.

 

Shout back if you need help setting up the Profiles. In my view Jaws should do this automatically for each voice installed but  will not do so. You will get the option to change to each main synthetiser group automatically but you will have to save a profile for say each Vocaliser Expressive voice in Jaws separately if you want it to appear in the list with this keystroke. This is tedious to set up but pretty straightforward when you know how.
