Have a look in the folder where the dictionaries were you should find your old version in a sub directory. simply rename it to the new name and then copy it over the one you just created and restart nvda.
I think to be certain you need to do this manually in the user folder version then copy to log on afterwards to bring it back into the program folder.
However this really depends on whether you wish to still use Espeak and not the speech player in Espeak add on version of Espeak.

Subject: [nvda] Versioned Voice Dictionaries

So I just updated to the latest NVDA, and I now have some issues thanks
to the changes with the voice dictionaries. I understand why since
languages in espeak have changed names, but I lost several voice
specific entries and don't remember what I did for them. I tried to fix
one instance and although the pronunciation sounded right in the
dictionary file, it didn't when I read the name in question somewhere
else, although it was apparent some change had been made. This behaviour
has never happened before, and the pronunciation of the replacement has
been consistent in all places. I'm concerned that I might never get this
name pronounced the way I want it again, and I've only tested this with
one entry!
