Managing Text Jobs

When you click the Jobs tab in jovie, the Jobs screen appears.

The KDE Text-to-Speech Manager (Jobs tab)


The controls here allow you to change attributes of the currently speaking voice. Note this only works if you have no voices configured in the Talkers tab.


The buttons in this row permit you to stop, cancel, pause and resume the current text job.


The buttons in this row permit you to speak the text currently in the KDE clipboard, or open a text file for speaking. You can also change the talker for a job.


When you click OK or Apply, all changes to settings on other screens are applied (if any).


The Jobs tab only appears when Jovie is running. If you do not see the Jobs tab, click on the General tab and check the Enable Text-to-Speech (Jovie) box.
