You also need the c++ 2015 redistributable package.

Hi Brian,

This is just a german only problem i have had.
already have reported to the espeak ng team and it has been fixed in
espeak ng master.
nvda next has espeak ng master from a few weeks where the bug is present.

weird ways some words are said in ng is still a problem.

Hi Simon,

What version of eSpeak-NG are you using?  Looking at: indicates that the latest
version is 1.49.2, which we updated to prior to NVDA 2017.4.

Having said that, I know there are still issues with eSpeak, some of
are tracked on our issue tracker, and some on eSpeak-NG's here:

Kind regards

Hi all,

The currently used espeak ng has a bug in the german language.
The bug has been fixed and espeak ng should be updated to latest master.
haven't opened a ticket yet because i thought i'll not make to much
noise about it.
though i can open a ticket as well if the devs prefer that.

Greetings and thanks,
