Pressing control plus j also updates the engine.

You cannot use JAWS Eloquence with NVDA.  However, you can purchase and download an extension from Code Factory for $95 that will add both Eloquence and Vocalizer Express voices to NVDA:

I see you downloaded the trial version and didn't try it before it expired.  I didn't notice that when I read the message the first time.  I happened to read it again while I was reviewing one or two other messages nearby.  Did you download both trial versions or just one?

Re: Eloquence and NVDA

Eloquence in JAWS is restricted and willl only work in JAWS. You can use the SAPI 5 Eloquence with JAWS if you want but there may be little or no point. If Narrator supports SAPI 5 voices, you can use the SAPI 5 version of Eloquence withh NVDA. The NVDA plugin, as all specifically NVDA plugins, by definition, work ohnly with NVDA. If you want to use Eloquence outside of NVDA in applications that don't already have it and support SAPI voices, the SAPI version is the one to get.

Try the demo to see if you are satisfied with it before ;purchasing.

Re: anyone else having a problem with ponts media downloader?

The last version of the program may have been offered in 2019 but the download engine is updated as needed. I've seen two updates in the last three or four months.

You don't have to be running the current version of the program to update the engine. I've done it on both a 2.x and a 3.x. version.

Re: anyone else having a problem with ponts media downloader?

It may have fixed it because you, in effect, updated the download engine when you reinstalled the program.

I would think that that should occur regardless of which version you are using.

Sharon, if you have the Be my eyes app, you can use that.


Re: Eloquence and NVDA

Gene
 

This is an impression because I didn't work with either extensively, but I don't recall any differences that matter. It my be, however, that the add-on caused a strange problem where the JAWS key didn't work properly at times. Its been perhaps four or five months since I compared the two and I'm not sure if that problem matters in general but others may have ccomments on that. They may not have had the problem and you can't generalize from one person's experience. I would suggest trying the demo versions of both, no matter what comments you get. You will have a week to try both.

The reason I favor the SAPI5 bersion is that at some time in the future, if Python (spelling) is updated again, it will make no difference. the SAPI 5 synthesizer will be compatible without the add-on being updated. Also, you may not care about this, but I like the idea of having a version of Eloquence that is compatible with many other programs.

Re: anyone else having a problem with ponts media downloader?

Update the download engine and that will probably correct the problem.
Open toolls, alt t. Then open options, o.
Up arrow to update download engine and press enter. the update will occur. It may take a minute or two and you may not have any speech in the program during that time. When the update finishes, you should get some sort of message. I've done it so seldom, I'm not sure what it is. If you ever have this sort of problem, the first thing to try is to update the engine.

At times, the update won't be done and you will get a message about not finding the current engine or update or something like that. In the very few times I've updated, it appears to me that this happens between the time an update is needed and the perhaps days until one is available.

narrator and Paypal Language Issue

Sharon Hooley
 

Hi,

Apparently, I inadvertently set Paypal to a language I don't know. Now I'm trying to get United States English. Narrator repeatedly says something like enter unknown language, and I managed to make it read enter English US. But so far I can't get the whole thing back to English using my keyboard. Any ideas what to try?

Thanks,

Re: Windows 10 Login Always Wants a PIN or Password

Brian Vogel <britechguy@...>
 

Steve,

           You're being asked for a PIN since you went through the "Create a PIN" process, which changes the default verification method.  And, yes, Microsoft has been forcing this, or at least making it difficult to avoid going through once.

            On the lock screen, beneath the edit box for whatever verification method happens to be your current default, are controls that allow you to switch to one of the other methods.  If you land on the one for Password, and choose it, and have already done the prior setup that allows you not to enter one, you should go back to going straight to the desktop.  I can't recall if it will require you to enter your password at the time of switching or not.
