RE: [WSG] XHTML+Voice

2007-09-10 Thread Mohamed Jama
This is very interesting, I've tried it and it worked like charm in my
Opera (Just needs to enable voice in the advanced TAB and then that will
automatically redirect you to download some files less then 3 minutes).

I couldn't find similar options in IE6/7 or Firefox sadly.

Hi Philippe, a quick question before I forgot to ask.
  A bit off-topic: yes I use VoiceOver sometimes; the built-in voice  
options are awful, so far Vicki is the only one I can listen for more  
than 15 mintues. I'd been wanting to purhcase a pleasant voice sample  
but don't know where to look. Anybody knows about this?
Hopefully Leapord will improve.

It's showing up on Opera site, so I reckon it's supported for 9.50

That page doesn't work as described on Safari, seen from here (latest  
WebKit nightly build -OS X) and Safari3.03beta - both OS X and WinXP).


But Mac OS X 10.4 (and esp. Safari) has build in screen reading  
technology: VoiceOver.
Turn VoiceOver on (command F5), and you can have the page read to  
you. See [1] for a quick howto.

No need for special (x)html code.

iCab also has this option (from the View menu).

Firefox and Camino nightly trunk builds will have support for  
VoiceOver in the future (currently you'll need to make a custom build  
from the Gecko 1.9 trunk to enjoy it. Basically, it works, but there  
are still rough edges. In a Camino build, it only works on the chrome  
part at the moment, not on the content part.).


I tried that page in Opera 9.5 alpha, but it didn't seem to make any  
noise. But maybe I'm missing a setting somewhere. I haven't read much  
about that issue, yet.
Opera 9.5a also seem to have basic support for VoiceOver (again,  
chrome only, as far as I could test).
