Thanks Yardbird,

for bringing this up, It gets to me too. It's one thing that can be done to improve the readability for Jaws.

*smile* It still refuses to say my first name right no matter what I do. Oh, it can say my last name just fine though. *muttering VoiceNote can, my old DecTalk could... *laughing

Have a good one!

Hi guys,

As I suggested earlier, if you capitalize the "s" in the middle of the word,
it then sounds in Jaws as people actually say it, instead of something like
re Ul spee yak. In other words, "realsSpeak."


Just trying to help. guess I've got sensitive ears. Hope this is helpful
to someone besides me. Sometimes it takes a little effort to figure out how
to make things pronounce right, especially in these times when so many high
tech product names are designed to be run together like that, a convention
that, now that I think of it, maybe is meant to hark back to the more
computer-y, once-novel look of how filenames had to be run together in DOS.
Or maybe not. Whatever. But without a little attention, Jaws can't say
these clever product names without sounding retarded.

Cy, Yeah, but it's probably because they're going to be offering Realspeak
with jaws version 8, so they probably don't want to get involved in fixing
existing problems with versions of realspeak which are not shipping with
jaws.
Cheers.
Alex

Hi Everybody, following on from my recent postings about the problems with Realspeak and Jaws I had a reply this morning from FS regarding it. John. Dear john

Thank you for contacting Freedom Scientific technical Support. Our
development team is working to address any issues with JAWS and the
synthesizers offered
with it. However, because JAWS 8.0 is still in development, there is no
information regarding the status of any issues known currently. If I can be
of
any additional assistance to you, feel free to email me back.
