RE: Setting different speech rates for different applications

You're right about the synths.  However, you can play around with
different voice combos (Real Speak or Eloquence), if you want to take
the trouble.

One thing I'd like to see is the ability to set RealSpeak as secondary,
and Eloquence as primary, instead of the other way around.  I've just
about reached the conclusion that plain old Eloquence is still the most
intelligible of the lot for general use, but there is at least one area
where RealSpeak shines, and it's worth  keeping around for this alone.
It seems to do an extraordinary job with tabular material in Word.
You'd think that would be a primary JFW function , and that the overlay
would make no difference, but RealSpeak is quite a bit better here.

Hello Ted.

It is not possible to change the synthesizer for a specific application
through the configuration manager.  The only way to do this that I know
of
is to have a set synthesizer statement written in the auto load event,
of
the application that you want to make sure a specific speech synthesizer
is
loaded.  This used to be very popular before multichannel sound cards
were
normal.  At that time most people had single channel sound cards.  We
had a
hardware speech synthesizer that we used when we wanted to play
streaming
audio with RealPlayer.  So while focused on RealPlayer we would open the
script manager, right a autostart event, and place the set synthesizer
statement in the autostart event.

Once again you cannot set a specific speech synthesizer for a specific
application through the configuration manager.  The change speech
synthesizer dialog box is grayed.  You can only set the default speech
synthesizer from within default.JCS.

I hope this helps.

Chris.

You can use different voices for different apps. Actually, you can use
different synth, if you wish; just use the synthesizer menu in
Configuration
Manager to create custom configurations.  Before you commit to anything,
you
can always use the hot key combination to switch on the fly, and se what
works.

If you use Real Speak, you can change its speed unilaterally, either
globally or in individual app.  It's a little harder to get some changes
to
stick than Eric implies in his instructions, but it can be done, even if
you
have to go through the voice menu, but that's probably a subject for
another
time.

This app has gotten so flexible that you're limited by little more than
your
desire and your imagination--a long way from the basic transportation of
JAWS 1.X.
