Re: Bug in espeak ng used in NVDA Next

I guess its the binaries as well.
because they use the windows 8.1 sdk.
i don't know if you can use a lower sdk though.

Just above where you can download the Windows binaries on:
There is a table showing minimum version. For Windows it says you need
Windows 8. I wasn't 100% sure whether that was if you were compiling it
yourself or for the binaries as well, but that could be the reason.
Kind regards

Sorry, that was my misreading re eSpeak-NG versions.

Re eSpeak-ng saying it won't work on Win 32, at a guess you may have
downloaded the 64-bit version - on that eSpeak-NG download page: you can download Windows
binaries for 64 or 32-bit.

I'll have a look and see when we plan to update to one of the newer
eSpeak-NG builds in next.

Hi Simon,

What version of eSpeak-NG are you using? Looking at: indicates that the
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
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,
