[access-uk] Re: Acapela voices

Hi, Sorry to highjack this one for my own uses but took a look at the Turkish voices last night and was pritty impressed with one of them Ipek. For some reason though that wasn't one of the voices I was able to download for demo purposes. Any idea why?


I found that with the 2 Turkish voices I did download there was a major problem with the dotless which WE reports as 1 and the acapella voice reports as the Turkish for 1 IE bir.

I'm not sure if this is a WE reading problem, an acapella problem or a problem with the Turkish character set I am using. I think the latter is unlikely though as I'm sure the dotless i appears correctly.

On the English voices, I tried Ryan but noticed a few weard pronounciations. But will be giving some of the other voices a go.

Am I right in assuming that Steve is the receller?

Hi Amro,

All the others work with JAWS out the box, so I don't see why the Arabic
voices shouldn't.

All the best

Hi Steve,

Yes indeed. Salma and Youssef are the Arabic voices. Go to Demos, Voice
Samples, Arabic and you'll see them there. These two synthes are the ones
used by Talks Arabic, Hal Arabic and they work with NVDA too. S&S are not
sure if they will work with Jaws out of the box so I'd like to install them
and see.

Cheers,
Amro

Hi Steve, I managed to download the Acapela Voice Engine but I couldn't
find

how to download one of the Arabic voices. They aren't listed with the rest
of voices for download. Any thoughts?

Cheers,
Amro

The link is missing the dot com off the end of it.

Try http://www.acapela-group.com

Hi David,

You can go to http://www.acapela-group to not only hear, but
download a demo
of the Infovox speech package which includes the voices.

Conversely, if you want a free DVD of all the voices, don't
hesitate to
contact me.

Yes, the voices are compressed on mobile phones, but not on
PCs.  They are
fabulous on a computer.

All the best

Steve

I remember hearing a brief sample of the Acapela speech on
the S.V.
Infotech, probably from Steve Nutt's stand.  So Steve, is
there anywhere we
can go on the net to hear a sample of Acapela.  also, will
the voices be
compressed on the pocket as Daniel has been on the Stream?
