I'm using the preloaded version of FF, As per phot is shows several English voice's, but they are all the same ( all sound like Stephen Hawking’s)
I have added 3 different TTS extensions , 2 didn't work at all, 1 worked with additional languages, But once again even in another language it sounds like Stephen Hawking’s.
"Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" novel then becomes reality, waking you at 3am.
As for TTS. I see there are quite a few TTS extensions for FF browser other than "Read Aloud", the only one I see listed above. Which others have you tried, or is it just different voices you have tried?
I wonder if @swarfendor437 can offer any insight regarding TextToSpeech extensions etc.
TTS will only use what the system has available/supports. This used to be the defauult Orca Voice, but I discovered in Devuan that Orca has some natural sounding voices for the screenreader these days. Normally, having a natural sounding voice requires the purchase of a SAPI5 voice from third party. At work NVDA for Windows uses the same rubbish voice but I was able to get a human sounding voice using free ones from mbrola - that is free to use but is not open-source and the risk I took as enabling the mbrola packages meant disabling Anti-Virus! But it did work. Some months later after student no longer using notebook I noticed that when NVDA (now NVAccess) launched it got an mbrola popup each time before it could be used - not ideal for a low-vision student.
2 different one both called TTS
Dark reader ( which was just browser settings like contrast)
TTSfox & TTS-fire.
some failed to work ( circle of death )
I carn't remeber the others i tried but all that worked still had the same voice, & very hard to understand/listen too.
Im also curious about the German-transliterate ( im thinking for German voice?, or is this just to establish a connection to AL voice & can be configured later?)
Here the video link by the creator of Verbify-TTS.
Would greatly appreciate if they can see a wrong command or anything i've done wrong.
Or do you think it's because i'm using GNOME?
