Synthèse vocale de texte sur iPad

Avec les avancés technologiques actuelles, j’étais persuadée de trouver un moyen de lire à haute voix un livre en français. Comme nous avons un iPad, les étapes ci-dessous ont été testées avec cet appareil seulement.

Après quelques recherches, j’ai opté pour l’application gratuite PocketBook qui permet la lecture d’un texte.

Donc, installez l’application PocketBook sur votre iPad. https://pocketbook.ch/

Achat d’un livre en format ePub

Pour acheter un livre à partir de l’appli PocketBook, il faut sélectionner Bibliothèque puis l’icône du Web (planète). Sur la page bibliothèque réseau, il faut utiliser la fonction de recherche.

Le livre, en format ePub, se trouvera très probablement sur https://fr.feedbooks.com/ où il faudra ouvrir un compte.

Il faut acheter le livre puis le télécharger.

Au téléchargement du livre, comme Bluefire Reader est installé sur notre iPad, au lieu de taper sur Ouvrir dans Bluefire Reader, il faut taper sur Plus. Puis taper sur Copier vers PocketBook.

Souvent, les livres sont protégés par Adobe DMR. Il faut donc obtenir un ‘Adobe ID’ gratuit sur https://account.adobe.com/ Ensuite, dans les paramètres de l’appli PocketBook, le compte Adobe doit être configuré.

Comment lire le livre avec Pocketbook?

Ouvrez le livre à partir de la page d’accueil.

Tapez n’importe quel mot, dans le menu contextuel qui s’affiche, cliquez sur le ‘haut-parleur’.

Puis tapez sur la pointe de flèche ‘Play’ pour commencer la lecture. Le menu paramètres, ouvert ci-dessous, montre les options de voix.

La prononciation est correcte. Les noms propres sont souvent mal prononcés ainsi que quelques mots. De plus, quelques liaisons et certaines intonations sont imparfaites. Au fur et à mesure de la lecture, les phrases lues sont surlignées, c’est bien pratique.

Lors de mes recherches, j’ai été déçue de réaliser que les liseuses (Kobo, Kindle) n’offrent pas la synthèse vocale du texte.

Share or Direct Access

In the previous article, I concluded that there is no difference in the back end between ‘Share’ and ‘Copy link’. In both cases a link is created.

Share and Copy Links in details | KTNN SharePoint (wordpress.com)

So what is the difference between ‘Share’ (or ‘Copy link’) and ‘Direct Access’ (+Advanced and classic permissions)?

Share or Copy link / Links giving access:

  • You can share with a user and an AD group.
  • You cannot share with a SharePoint group or a Microsoft 365 group.
  • People can only gain access to the file or folder by following a link that has been sent to them. Until they follow the link, they won’t have access to the file or folder, and they won’t find it by using Search.
  • Downloading certain types of files (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF, mp4, …) can be blocked.
  • You cannot share a library, a list or a site. Only a folder, an item and a file can be shared.
  • Permission inheritance is broken.
  • Power Automate action: Create sharing link for a file or folder.

Direct Access, Advanced, Classic Permissions:

  • You can give access to a user, an AD group, a SharePoint group and a Microsoft 365 group.
  • The shared information is findable.
  • You can create custom levels of security.
  • You can give access to a site, a library, a list, a folder, an item or a file.
  • Permission inheritance is broken.
  • Power Automate action: Grant access to an item or a folder (doesn’t allow the use of a SharePoint group).

Calendrier de canal dans Teams

Feature ID: 68910 Road Map

Pour cette nouvelle fonctionnalité, on se demande d’où provient ce calendrier: est-ce qu’il s’agit du calendrier du groupe ou non?

Voici comment je l’ai vérifié:

  1. J’ai créé un groupe O365 par Outlook. Donc je peux voir le calendrier de ce groupe.
  2. Puis j’ai créé un Team à partir de ce groupe. Donc je peux toujours voir le calendrier de ce groupe/Team.
  3. Quand je crée une réunion dans un calendrier de canal, je peux voir cette même réunion dans le calendrier de groupe.
  4. Le calendrier de groupe me permet de voir rassemblées toutes les réunions de tous les canaux. Cependant si je créé une réunion dans le calendrier de groupe directement, je ne peux pas voir cette réunion dans aucun des calendriers de canal de Team.

Donc les calendriers de canal sont un ‘affichage filtré’ du calendrier de groupe.

Shared Calendars in Microsoft Teams (jab365.cloud)

An intro to channel calendars in Microsoft Teams | jumpto365 Blog * attention: je ne suis pas d’accord avec ‘This calendar has nothing to do with the Microsoft 365 Group calendar that exists behind the scenes.’

Parenthèse à propos des groupes Teams cachés:

Depuis mars 2018, à la création d’un Teams, le groupe O365 associé est caché dans Outlook.

Roadmap ID 26955 ‘Office 365 Groups created from Microsoft Teams will be hidden from Outlook by default’

The roadmap feature states: ‘Based on customer feedback, new Office 365 Groups generated as a result of creating a team in Microsoft Teams will no longer show in Outlook by default. For customers that want to continue with the existing behavior of showing these groups in Outlook, an Exchange Online PowerShell cmdlet will be provided which can enable the group for the Outlook experience. Groups created through Outlook and then later enabled for Teams will continue to show in both Outlook and Teams. This update will gradually roll out across Outlook and Teams in the coming months.’ This change is also announced in the Office 365 Message Center (MC133135).

C’est intéressant de voir qu’il y a une différence entre cacher de la section des groupes dans Outlook et de la liste globale d’adresses dans Outlook.
