Re: Additional Free Voices for NVDA

You do know that with ESpeak one can change the language and then have
a choice of quite a few variants? I have mine set to English-US and
use the Daniel variant. But I do understand about different folks
having different hearing and that' it's all up to personal preference.
Just want to point out that no one is stuck with the default language
or variant.

Good, I like NVDa; I just can't stand that ESpeak. It's too robotic and the

accent is too sharp. I don't have a problem with real people with Australian

something. I've tried running them real slow and still can't get used to
them. Maybe it's my hearing, or, perhaps I just need to try longer.

Glad I could help. Be sure to run the Microsoft runtime file first and then
the zira-pro. I did this while NVDA was running and then went into the
Preferences setting then synthesizers and found the voice. It is responsive
and understandable.

Monica,
If you download the zip file that was posted earlier, the correct files are
included. I just downloaded it and installed the runtime file and the
zira-pro voice on my desktop and I must say it is a vast improvement over
ESpeak. In case you missed the zip file, here is the link:

To download from Google Drive,

1. Activate the link.
2. When at the top of the page tab 2 times to the Download button.
3. Press the spacebar.
4A. If the virus scan warning page comes up, tab to the Download
anyway link and press the spacebar.
4B. A normal download file dialog should open and you can download the file.

Re: lowest bit rate for audio books?

Gene
 

If you are using a bit rate of 32kbps, you will get better results using 2250.  If you are using 64. you should probably leave the sample rate at the default which is something like 44100.  I don't recall the exact default number.  I'm not sure which sample rate might give better results if you use a bit rate of 48kbps.  And as I said, I'm recommending settings based on how I hear compressed audio.  You may want to check both the 2250 and the default 44100 bit rate at 32kbps and 48kbps.  you may want to compare at 64kbps as well but I think at that bit rate, you should the 44100 bit rate.

Re: installing windows with speech

The answer is that there is basically no difference.  It is simply a variation/different build of the same thing. A PE AKA Preinstallation Environment.  Although obviously there may be different utilities included and default settings used.  You can download my personal images and the associated documentation here.
And since this is a new list with some possibly new members, thanks to Rob Hudson for hosting the files.

I just wanted to say a great big thanks to Carlos for uploading this thing.  The content is excellent.  The following is not a criticism, but I had to smile when I saw that the sampling rate was 320 K which produced a file of greater than 1.2 gigs in size.  So I used Pazera to compress it to a sampling rate of 32 K, producing a file of 124 megs in size.  It reminds me of the time when I went to download some old pre-1925 acoustical recordings which somehad ripped at 320 K.  It always amazes me how many persons erroneously think that regardless of the original content, they can make it sound better by ripping at 320 K.

Re: lowest bit rate for audio books?

Hi all,

Well, this question is questionable but if it's plain mono audio 22050 should be sufficient.

Re: lowest bit rate for audio books?

John, if you ask ten people, you will get ten different answers.  For voice quality, I am very happy with 32 K.  But some will scream abuse at you if you send them something that low.  In another message I posted about twenty minutes ago, I pointed out that by going to 32 K, I reduced the size of the Essential iPhone training folder from 1.2.1 gigs to 124 megs, and the sound of voice recordings is fine to my ear although many will disagree.

What is the lowest bit rate I can use for audio books without losing
much sound quality?  For example, when I use Baliboka to take text
from an ebook.

Re: BARD Outage

Beth -
 
Oh, for heaven's sake. What did you do before BARD came into being? Download a bunch of books; store them on your computer; and you'll have enough reading matter to keep you going for a couple of days. This is definitely not the end of the world.

Marie,
I understand I should be patient, but patience never paid off. We blind people can't just go to a library and pick up books we like, and Bard is for some about 80% of book access, so you have to admit that this error is unprecedented, but I say it's unacceptable because it's not good for the public eye for the site to be down for this many days. Remember the Congressional Kindergarten class that resulted in the shutdown? Well, because of a Tea Party full of greed, we lost access to books, and that's unfair. I won't let that happen to me or thousands of other readers.
