Unfortunately, I can't remember when I played with that app,
which I suspect is the culprit. I have daily restore points
created at noon, but restoring my system to one of them just to
remove a minor annoyance seams like an overkill to me.
I've looked through all the services on my system, but I don't
see anything related to speech there.
I suspect that if I remove the SAPI4 related keys from the
registry, I'll be able to fix the issue. But I don't know where
exactly in the registry to look for them. And playing around in
the registry without exactly knowing what I'm doing is not a good
So, if I don't find a suitable solution, I'll just leave it as it

restore from before the service, if that is what it is, was
installed. I suspect it is a service since it doesn't show up
in programs and features. Or, instead of uninstalling it, you
might be able to tell Windows not to run it in MSConfig. that
might have the same effect as uninstalling it in that NVDA
might not display the service since it wouldn't be running. I
don't know how long it has been on your machine so I don't
know if running a restore point is a good idea. You may have
made so many changes in your machine that would be undone by a
restore point from before the service was on your machine that
it might be very inconvenient. You might have to reinstall
programs, reinstall Windows updates and updates of other
programs, etc. Just telling it not to run might be the best
option. How you do that in Windows 10 is something I don't
know, I don't use Windows 10.

Well my way was to install it for real from an old archive, the
after that. However I'm sure there will be bits left as there
I still have it. I am just trying to remember which programs put
there. Certainly the old Via Voice IBM program used it, and what
one that used Mary in space. I seem to recall, was that Dspeach?
