Yes i saw the rc this morning but do you know why Microsoft made this change is this perhaps due to the plodding nature of some of those voices by default?
seems an odd thing to alter.

Subject: [nvda] Advisory: if upgrading to Windows 10 Version 1803, NVDA 2018.1.1 is required


Hi everyone,



The following advisory is rated "major" due to high impact:



Toward end of development for Windows 10 Version 1803, Microsoft changed a
critical component in Windows OneCore speech synthesizer (specifically,
bitrate). This causes OneCore synthesizer to sound a bit funny, including
higher pitch. NV Access has just released a release candidate for NVDA
2018.1.1 which will correct this problem. Because of this, you need to be
running 2018.1.1 for best experience with Windows 10 Version 1803.



Thank you.

Cheers,

Jospeh
