Captivate 2019 Assets

Question 1

I remember when 2017 was released that there was an asset packaged available to download. Was there an asset package available for 2019 as well?

Question 2

When installing the voices package for 2019 there are only 7 voices added to the options available in captivate. I thought I remember there being a lot more text-to-speech voice options. Is there any other add-ons that I am missing?

Generating speech using Power Point Notes

Dear Forum,

Do any of you have tips to solve the following problem.

With Captivate 2019, creating a project with a power point presentation.

Using Power Point Notes to generate speech.

Problem:

Some words require specification for correct pronounciation. Doing this by adding to Neospeech dictionary.

Previously, the new pronounciations did have effect, now they dont. It is like Captivate is ignoring if you update e.g. the James voice to pronounce words correctly.

Any ideas ?

Have installed Neo Speech French voices but it does not work in Captivate…

I have installed NeoSpeech French voices (Louis and Roxane). They appear clearly in the Windows Settings but as I try to use them in Captivate  (Roxane or Louis), I only hear the Microsoft Voice.

So I made a test. When I change the voice in the Windows Settings and choose Roxane (as below), what ever voice (Roxane or Louis) I choose in Captivate, it is Roxane that I hear.

Any tips on how to successfully hear the two voices?

Captivate 9 – can text to speech in captivate 9 record foreign language

Recently there has been a request for translation and localization of our courses. I use Captivate 9 Text-To-Speech feature to record audio. I was wondering if I get the translated script in the slide notes, is there a voice available that will record it in French or Korean?

Thanks is advance!

Words pronounced incorrectly in text-to-speech

I am creating a module on professional resume tips; and the speech output pronounces “resume” the correct way in this context (res-u-may) and the traditional way (re-soom).  In other words, it uses both pronunciations in text-to-speech.  I even tried adding the asterisk (‘) at the end with no success.  Please help!

The Complete Guide On Text-To-Speech Software: Are You Hearing Voices?

You might be surprised to hear that I use TTS in almost all my projects, even though the final deliverable will include professional narration. It might seem like you waste time creating TTS narration when you intend to use your own voice or a professional narrator. The opposite is usually true.
