Re: Eloquence delay after launching NVDA.

I was under the impression that embedded eloquence in Jaws is not able to be used outside, so you need to have one of the two, I think legal versions for nvda.
as an aside and this is not recommended, the old sappi 4 version distributed as via voice out loud with the old ibm home page reader, seems to be actually very reliable. I really cannot take Eloquence though as I find its lisp very annoying after a while!

It also depends on your system as well. I hope I’m wrong! For some Elequence may respond quickly while for some it’s slow to respond! I have it in jaws 14 and I use E speak for NVDA. Now, Mind you I don’t have Jaws 18 but if it responds no problem then you may have a good system. I could be lying!

I am sorry you have problems with Jaws also. Jaws 18 is fine for me at this end.

There is a known issue with Code Factory Eloquence with NVDA.

I have seen several complaints from NVDA users on other lists than this which complain of the extreme delay with NVDA loading with Code Factory Eloquence. This caused some to recommend using the illegal NVDA Eloquence addon as an alternative which drew an angry response from the person retailing Code Factory Eloquence in this country.

If was from this person retailing the Code Factory product in this country that I learnt the tip of amending sound properties in the Control Panel as a partial solution to the slow loading. He in turn had got this advice from Code Factry as I understand it.

Presumably as not all people have the same configurations in their Sound Control Panel applet the experience of people experiencing this delay may well vary.

Using jfw 18 with elequence, I have this problem sop I don't think this is an NVDA problem. JMT.

Yes I have had this issue of extreme delayed start up along with the additional issue of NVDA and eloquence freezing in large File Explorer windows.

This does not happen with the illegal versions of Eloquence which is disappointing from a a Code Factory quality point of view.

I managed to improve matters to some degree by going into the Sound Properties in Windows Control Panel, selecting my default sound device and turning off all the fancy affects like surround sound and just selecting just basic stereo as my output format.

This has had the affect of slightly diminishing the funkier music output from my PC but I am not now waiting upt to a minute or more for NVDA to load.

I still get the problem of NVDA not responding with large file explorer windows but what I have learnt is that if you turn Narrator on with Windows Enter temporarily you can navigate your file lists fine until NVDA wakes up and starts responding again. I just turn Narrator off when NVDA finally catches up.

Subject: [nvda] Eloquence delay after launching NVDA.

Hello Everyone,

I am experiencing a significant delay after launching NVDA with Code Factory’s Eloquence implementation selected as the speech synthesizer.

I am running on Windows 10.

Does anyone else experience this issue and, if so, what steps have resolved this issue?
