I took part in Gröbenzell Family Run. Thanks to Archilles International again!
I ran about 12km as part of a marathon relay Archilles Internal 2 at the HASPO Hamburg Marathon. Archilles International is a club for disabled runners. They provide guides and help disabled runners like me to take part in running events. Please consider donating.
I’m using screenreaders for well over a year now. I constantly switch between English and German in emails, text, chats, etc. Many many times a day the screenreader would read German or English in the wrong voice, because it is not properly tagged. I October I bought a Macbook Air M1. VoiceOver on the M1 processor detectsds the language with artificial intelligence. Its very accurate and I wanted the same for my work and my gaming PC.
So I developed a NVDA plugin called: NVDAOneCoreAutoLang
It adds a new speech synthesizer, which is a modified version of the “Windows OneCore voices” synthesizer. After installation of my plugin a new synthesizer called “Windows OneCore voices (AutoLang)” is available. Before any text is spoken the plugin uses the fasttext language indentification model to guess the language. If a voice for this language is installed in Windows, the plugin uses that voice to speak the text. It defaults to the selected voice.
It’s the year 2021. This time I’m really making a homepage 🙂 I’m a legally blind engineer. Most content will be around my blindness. I might write about my two sports running and alpine skiing too. 🙂 Cheers!
