Re: Jaws 10.0: How can i add German to my Eloquence synthesizer?

I tried all of those US English voices on my JFW 11 demo. Aside from the human quality, I was unimpressed with the responsiveness of these Realspeaks considering I'm running a Presario Pentium 2ghz Dual core with 2GB RAM. I found Jennifer and Tom to be rather choppy, wit Jill and Samantha performing tolerably well but not nearly as fast as Elloquence. I'm glad these things are free for JFW users as I wouldn't waste any money.

Hi, Dave,

I noticed that as soon as I hit send. Felt rather silly, actually. Must
have zoomed right out of my head as soon as I read that he was
considering paying extra for something he could get for free. Always
bugs me that people should be charged for stuff like that. I am
mystified as to how he got an eloquence version that didn't come with
German already on it. I'm a multilingual individual and German is one of
the 7 languages I speak. I could always hop onto German language
websites without a problem. If I have language detect on, Jaws even
starts speaking them in German without any additional modification of
settings from me. I've been using Jaws with eloquence since like 3.3
and, I've noticed it's always had it there for you when you needed it.
It's just harder to get to now with the profile system instead of just
hitting a hotkey to switch languages on the fly.

Hallo:

What version of Jaws are you running? You should have German on it
already. I don't think you should have to pay for it though. Are you
strictly set on Eloquence? Have you ever tried the more natural sapi5
voices? If you are using Jaws 10 or later, you can download the
realspeak solo direct voices for free from Freedom Scientific. Two of
them are German voices, Steffi and Yannic. Here is the link:
http://www.freedomscientific.com/downloads/RealSpeak-Solo-Direct-Voices/RealSpeak-Solo-Direct-Downloads.asp



Use the h key to scroll through the headings. Each language is its
own heading. There are many languages. Each has a sample for you to
listen to.



Viel Glück, mein Freund,

Alex

hi all;
my eloquence synthesizer has 10 languages excluding german. but i know
that
eloquence does support 17 languages including german. should i pay an
extra
fee for adding german? is there an elegant way for adding a language to
the
synthesizer? reinstalling the whole synthesizer, but not jaws, is
also ok
for me as the second choice, but i couldnt find where to download an
stand-alone version of the synthesizer.
------ my question ends here----
before this i have say a great thanks to all about my previous question
about muting jaws. all the answers were really useful for me and
encouraged
me to learn a lot about even other things in the internet!
best wishes
Hamid
