hey everyone! i have very short list of questions only for chinese blind people.
1: i need the best chinese synthesizer. im starting to learn chinese and i need voice with absolutely, or almost absolutely correct pronunciation.
it may be sapi, nvda or jaws synthesizer.
2: if somebody wants to help me with chinese, it would be awesome! really! btw if you're interesting person, we can talk other things besides chinese. btw2, if someone needs, i can teach russian. for free, off course!

Hi,
You can use espeak ng in nvda. It has support for both cantonese and mandarin. Btw, I am learning Russian and I need to practice with someone. Please reply this post if you want to teach me..
Thank you

idk, but anyways we can try.
and about nvda, it has terrible pronunciation. and it doesnt read intonations correctly.

ESpeak is a horrible idea for Mandarin, and so is Eloquence. Your best bet is probably Vocalizer in any of it's versions, or even iFly if you want to deal with ZDSR. But as far as I can tell, Vocalizer is the easiest to obtain with decent pronunciation.

i allready have activated vocalizer and russian and english and also brazilian portuguese voices work normaly. but chinese synthesizer even doesnt appear in voicelist.

I currently use the code factory add on for vocalizer with nvda, and Li Li talks just fine. I could even pretend to read the Chinese names of students the other day by repeating it, and they at least got the idea of who's name I was trying to say. I'm pretty sure I have terrible pronunciation. I've tried to use zhengdu but mine doesn't read any Chinese characters for some reason. (someone else on this forum suggested I should change my computer location) If you use jaws you could try getting real speak to work, but I haven't tried that.
