Hi Sarah,
 
Yes ESpeak is.  Here is the link.
 
 
By the way, I think this voice sounds like he has a cold.  But, I also like trying new voices.  You never know when you might find that perfect one.

I’ve not tried the speach player. Is that on the official add ons website if so I will give this A try and see how I myself like it. I love the 1core voices, but its’ good to try somethingn different in case the 1core decide to crash or something.

I still think you might like the speech player in Espeak add on.

I haven’t heard from Richard yet but my impression was that he wanted to
discuss East Texas and other things related to where we live.

After reading your last post, I am pretty certain that I will just use
Eloquence from Code Factory when I come up with the cash.  And, just use the
original NVDA voice on a thumb drive when I want to have speech on a
computer outside of my home.

Gene, thank you for your input.  I sure wouldn’t have been impressed if I
paid around $40,for lousy speech.  Especially since I am so impressed with
NVDA itself.

As I learn more, I will probably be interested in what some of the NVDA add
ons do but I have my plate full right now since I am also learning how to
use Chrome.

Cheers,

James B

There is something else to consider.  First, I may have misunderstood the
request to take the sub ject off list.  It might have referred to where
people live.  I often see people take topics of general interest off lists
and I first thought the request referred to the Eloquence discussion.

As far as the SAPI 5 versus the add on is concerned, I don't think you can
use the SAPI 5 verxsion unless it is installed on the computer you want to
use it with.  I suspect, though you would have to check, that you can use
the add with a portable version and that it would run with the rest of NVDA
from a thumb drive.  Perhaps, considering the problem of artifacts, you
might want to have both versions, depending on where you are going to use
the artifact.

Why do people want to take things off list that are of general interest.
This is such a topic.  There are demos of the Code Factory SAPI 5 Eloquence
and of the add on, which has both Eloquence and another series of voices.
The Eloquence in the add on, I don't recall who makes and distributes it,
has lots of artifacts and is significantly inferior for that reason.  All
sorts of unwanted and annoying sounds occur.  the other synthesizer included
is fine, but not the Eloquence.

I suggest trying either or both demos when deciding what you might want to
use.

  I have heard that at least one of the 2 versions out there is glitchy.

  James, they allow three installations of Eloquence if you are referring to
the Code Factory product.

    Hi all,

    I have questions about diffferent  voices for NVDA.

    If I purchase Elequence for NVDA, do I have to pay around 40 dollars for
each PC that I am using?

    Can the portible NVDA be set up with Elequence or something almost as
good?

    Thanks,
