To open the Management Console either right click on OptiKey itself (not the icon in the taskbar) and select to open the management console from the context menu that opens, or with OptiKey selected press 'ALT' and 'M' on your keyboard (physical or on-screen if using a tablet), then select the 'Sounds' tab at the top. You can interact with the Management Console using either OptiKey's mouse and keyboard emulation, or a physical mouse and keyboard.

Speech

  1. Voice: The voice to use when OptiKey speaks the contents of the scratchpad. The available set of voices depends on which TTS (Text To Speech) voices you have installed in Windows. Additional voices can be installed from the Microsoft website, or purchased through 3rd party companies. Please email me at optikeyfeedback@gmail.com if you are unsure how to do this, or would like to share a good source of voices.

  2. Volume: The volume of speech within OptiKey. From 0 to 100 (mute to loud).

  3. Rate: The rate (speed) at which the scratchpad text is spoken. From -10 to +10 (slower to faster).
