If your having problems with the code factory eloquence I would contact them and maybe make a recording so they know what the exact problem is.

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

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.

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

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.

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?
