Espeak default voice with NVDA

Brian's Mail list account

I was doing a new installation the other day and did wonder why the very sing song variant of Espeak was chosen by default. It is irritating to many, but still is the most responsive synth for general navigation. There are of course many variants, and dialects in English, but its the peakyness of that particular voice that is probably why a lot of people do not use it.

Of course it cannot seem to get a realistic American accent either.
