hi all,
Despite the poor quality are a lot of languages ​​supported intelligibility
when nvda will be installed, nvda begins with the native language.
after installing you always can make a choice for another synthesizer or keep espeak.
it is not a good idea to remove espeak from the nvda installer.

so keep espeak in the installation of nvda, that's my opinion.

I think espeak /espeak ng needs to stay because no other synth does support so many languages.
Other synths can be installed afterwards.

in india, eSpeak only reads most of the indian languages like tamil,
marati, telugu etc and we will struggle to read languages written in
indian languages.
so eSpeak is necessary for us.

Hi list

I do not necessarily agree with the idea to do away with ESpeak. I believe
that is a case of "horses for causes."

In South Africa, more specifically, at the Institute for the Blind in
Worcester where I am a lecturer, we extensively use ESpeak to read
Afrikaans. And may I say, the quality of ESpeak's Afrikaans is actually

I won't mind if the developers do away with ESpeak, but before that happens
I want definite proof that the replacement program has, at least, the same
quality, preferably, better.



nothing is difficult unless you make it appear so.
