Re: How to download Jarte

Gene
 

Veronica and all
 
While the person may find it useful to have the information and address provided, the question is framed by a statement that the person is having problems downloading anything in Edge and the question of how you download in Internet Explorer. 
 
If these are the actual problems, they need to be addressed.  Internet Explorer isn’t going to be supported indefinitely, I wouldn’t be surprised if support ends in the next year or two. 
 
As to problems downloading using Edge, have you been successful in the past?  What is different now?  Did these problems begin when the new Edge came out?  The way you download files is a little different in Edge compared with other browsers I’ve used but once you know how to work with the differences, downloads are not a problem.

Lately, I have been having a lot of issues trying to download something, whether it is an app, program, music--using windows 7 or windows 10with MS Edge, and I have tried IE on windows 10.  At the moment I would like to download Jarte on my windows 10 computer, as I do not have MS Word on that computer and I cannot read the e-mails that are on my portable hard drive because of that.  I can read them fine on the windows 7 computer, but at times that particular computer is not available.  Could someone please give me step by step instructions on how to acquire and download Jarte?  Thank you very much.

I doubt it can read as quickly with as little distortion as Eloquence.  That’s one reason I use Eloquence.  And I wouldn’t be surprised if  Eloquence pronounces more words correctly without correcting them.  Talkback sounds pleasant, from the very little bit I’ve heard, but most symthesizers start to diminish in quality when listening at fast speeds.

Hi Gene:

If you're seeking to be able to use MP3 DirectCut and
related apps, an Android tablet won't be your friend!  The
likes of such apps HAVE NOT YET BEEN PORTED OVER to
Androidville and such a porting may never happen. 

Eloquence is gone in Androidville; it was pulled by
CodeFactory 'cause, according to it, it wasn't making enough
pennies.  Furthermore, CodeFactory WOULD NOT UPDATE its
32BIT CODE to a 64Bit one which Google requires for all apps
in the Play Store.  Only those who had previously purchased
Eloquence enjoy grandfather status.  Vocalizer is a TTS
engine from the same company and it is still being actively
developed; sure costs a lot less than Eloquence! 

The Android OS is a different animal with its peculiar
learning curve.  As of the present moment, NO WINDOWS SCREEN
READER can be installed in an Android box.  A thing or two
might change in the future, or someone out there may come up
with a hack that would get several adrenalins pumping high!

JAWS Reverb

Joe Orozco
 

Hello,

I'm experiencing an issue where JAWS speech is coming across in an
annoying reverb fashion when I plug in 3.5 MM ear buds. I've seen this
issue before and have been able to turn off sound enhancements in
Control Panel; however, I am not seeing that option in my current work
computer. I do not experience the issue when I use a USB headset, but
as I have to work on two separate computers at once, I use the earbuds
under a second headset to keep track of two workflows simultaneously.
Everything was working fine this morning, and then Windows updated and
made my life miserable. A tad dramatic, I know, but the sound
distortion makes it hard to listen to JAWS. Can you suggest any fixes?

Thanks in advance,

Joe

The closest for tablet is mainly surface pro and lenovo which  comes with windows.
If you want light weight, LG Gram but its very expensive as its weighing not even 1kg or 2pound
Depends what you are after, you can get a decent chromebook and do what you are doing. surfing the net, play music, read email etc.

Because of my tablet experience, I had no intention of getting a keyboard for my iPhone, and another reason for that was to have to have some kind of peripheral with it.

Greetings,

 

Ever wonder what it would be like for your speech synthesizer to sing?

Here are two examples of espeak singing!


The first one is using the MBROLA algorithm on an UTAU voice,
the second one is espeak without MBROLA.

 

 

This was done by Tobias from the espeak group

Today I just made a new release of my piano roll editor for singing
synthesis called QTAU, including its dependencies Sekai and Sinsy.
QTAU can make espeak-ng sing, using a patch I had written some time
ago, future versions will also support Festival and MBROLA voices.
The singing generator source code is at
https://notabug.org/isengaara/sekai/src/master/bin/espeak-sg.cpp and
currently does not work with klatt voices yet. In the next few month I
plan to write a patch to support singing with klatt voices too.

With Windows you could have narrator, NVDA or JAWS, take your pick.
And there's probably a few more screen readers I'm forgetting about.
LEASY could be used too.

Re: Issues with user accounts and passwords in Windows 10

Thomas N. Chan
 

There's only a few reason, you did key in the wrong password
The keyboard settings is sending the wrong character to it

Logically, from the information you given, itshould work if you did input the right password. Unless something is sending or keying the wrong info for you.
If you did reset the password, and the window did accepted it. Then it should work unless that user does not have administrative rights to do all you mentioned.

Thomas N. Chan

Re: how to get to computers for the blind?

That is so cool. I've been researching to get a new computer because my Chromebook doesn't work with software that I have to use with my crafting machine anyway another thing that might help you guys is 80 of Ohio for assistive technology of Ohio has computers for $60. I got my first laptop from there years ago and when I upgraded for school / college I got a new computer through the bsvi. Anyway that is it going to organization if you can afford it. You might check into that if something else doesn't work for me too.

Gene, I don't think you could find an iPad for less than a computer for the blind, but you could an Amazon Kindle, or for maybe the same price. Also, the RCA Pro is an Android tablet. I just simply, literally despised the keyboard that came with the one I had though. I thought it was clumsy and sluggish. I never gain proficiency on it, like I have, on all thingds, the screen one on my iPhone. It could be that I have worked harder on the iPhone, and had more information about how to use it than I did the one on that tablet. Nevertheless, the RCA Pro is a good buy, if they still have them.

Because of my tablet experience, I had no intention of getting a keyboard for my iPhone, and another reason for that was to have to have some kind of peripheral with it. On the tablet, the keyboard was attached, but it could be removed, and you could use just the touch screen, which was a big one, probably almost the size of one of a desk top.

Hi. Are you using excel 2016? If so there is a nifty little feature that can help you get most thinks done even if you don’t know the keystroke. I use it all the time and it works in all office 2016 applications. To delete a row in excel, focus on the row. Next, press altQ. This will bring up a search field. Type delete row, then arrow down. You should hear, delete sheet rows. Press enter and the row should go away.

 

Hope this helps.

Hi Gene,

 

What kind of tablet are you thinking of?

You know the flavours, Ipad, Android, or Windows.

Both the ipad and windows tablets are more expensive than a new, basic  win10 machine.

Many of the android tablets  are less expensive,  but I think you would get more for your money with a purchase from Computers for the Blind.

As a Canadian, I cannot access services from Computers for the blind,  but, overall, I have heard more good than bad comments on these lists    FOR THAT ORGANIZATION.
