Hit windows i, then look for I think it's language and text in the main pannel.

Good luck.

Hello Quentin and all,
This is probably a stupid question, but how do I get into text-to-speech settings? I just typed it into Courtanna and got about 12 different results.
Thanks for your patience,
Jan

Hi Manish,
 
In Windows Text-to-speech settings (start typing text to speech settings in the start menu) there is a slider for "speed".  Move that further to the right to increase the speech rate.  Note that this setting as well as NVDA's speech rate together both affect how fast the voice talks, so the fastest speed would be both at max.
 
Regards
 
Quentin.

Hi,

I tried using the windows one core voice with NVDA today. I tried increasing the rate of speech but even at 100% the rate was slower than I would like.

The same voice, Microsoft David, can be set to a much faster rate when using narrator. With narrator, I could get David to speak almost as fast as espeakNG.

 

Has anyone else noticed this and figured out a way around this?

 

Regards,

Manish
