Ok, never mind, all three ivans are there, for some reason though, ivan2 and ivan3 are much much higher on the list than the ivan choice. That's why I didn't see them at first. It appears the english-us and the english list are identical. Not sure why I missed the ivan2 and ivan3 when I looked before. I have 52 voices in the list of voices, ivan2 and ivan3 are numbers 10 and 11, while ivan is number 48. Not sure why the regular ivan is so far away from ivan2 and ivan3, but that's what caused my confusion. Sorry for the trouble.

Let me express myself once more, please,
I've just taken a look at the English US entry, and I find all the three Ivens. What to say to that? Is it possible that our friend member is encountering an error?

Thank you for teaching me some new NVDA-related things.
I used to use Iven, and in order to prevent outbursts, I decreased the volume level down to 40%, and it worked smoothly for me.

Ahh, I see. I only had a single ivan, because I was looking under the english us. The 3 ivan voices are under the entry that just says english. Now it makes sense. That was I was wondering where the other ivan voices were, they don't show up under the english us setting, only under the english by itself. Got it now. Think I'll stick with the ivan I have, it's slightly louder than the other 2, and slightly deeper, which I like very much.

If the E speak nz is the preferred synth package under the synth
settings, I only notice the varients come up under the voice settings
section. I just looked and saw all 3 ivon voices there. Even though i am
using a windows 10 pc it should not matter.
There is about 40 or 50 voices or varients under that section.
If it is the sapi 5 version they might have to be installed if they are
if not what is mentioned above i have no idea.
I can tell you if you made extra varients where to put them, but that is
not maybe you are asking about.

Yeah, I know that. I was specifically asking where the ivan3 voice
was, because I only see 1 ivan voice, uneer the espeak ng synthesizer.
You didn't answer my question.

Under the voice settings section when you go into it under the barient
section it is a combo box open it up then arrow down the list to hear
the different varients there. the voices will change depending on the
synth package used.
I find my own voice Gene easy to listen 2.

I didn't know there was more than one ivan. I use ivan as well, but I
only saw one of them in the list of voices. This is using the espeak
ng. I like the ivan voice, where are the others so I may take a look
at them as well?

Although you said that you did not understand ESpeak, what do you
think about using some of the variants it offers us? For instance, I
use Iven 3, which I find very clear. I have set the rate at 24. I do
not encounter any problems, probably because I use ESpeak, which I
find very quick and responsive. Try to get used to it. Your messages
say that your English is very good, so I think that you may get used
to it before long. Choose between the variants, and try different
rates to make it suitable for yourself. Let me also say that I used
ESpeak while doing some freelace translations from English to
Serbian, and vice versa. I was successful.

Hi good people:
If you can recollect, I did send a message to this group about my
not working properly. I did get many responses, and I thank all of
you who found time to respond. I am sorry I mistakenly deleted the
digest mail sent to me, and I can not reply to the mail. But I
believe some of you might remember the mail.
Actually, I got a very good response from David. He made some
suggestions which I've tried. I discovered when I switched off NVDa
as he suggested, and I used the demo version of JAWS for Windows,
the system worked very nicely, and fast.
I strongly believe that the problem must be from the synthesiser I am
using. Actually, I use Micro sofft speech AI4 which I use through
viavoice outloud. I appear to like the synthesiser, because it is
very clear and it sounds like eloquence. But it appears obsolete and
not very helpful.
I can't use the JAWS demo version, because it works in 40 minute
and one cannot usee that when doing serious work on the computer.
I downloaded Microsoft speech version 11 but it couldn't be installed
on my system. I did it several times but it didn't work. i cannot
use ESpeak, because I don't understand the speech. I tried koba
speech as well, but the speech for that is also not very easy to
So, can anyone suggest another synthesiser. I use windows 7 32bit.
I am Ibrahim from Nigeria.
