Well if you paid for it and its stopped working you can of course legitimately contact the vendor and they should sort you out. I think one of the problems we have encountered in the past was that after a certain version, Jaws stopped allowing outside software to use any speech synth they supplied with their software. This meant that in some peoples eyes, they had to buy the same voice twice. Thus somebody wrote a hack to allow the voices to be used in NVDA.
At that time I did speak to in those days Freedom Scientific and they told me that the stipulation that it could only be used with Jaws was a condition of allowing them to supply the voices, one assumes, it cost them less to licence them this way.

Well I certainly haven't gotten a hacked version of it. It's probably the sappy version which I assumed I could still get with the latest version of NVDA by that I mean a clean install.

Not really, There were sound alikes around that worked as sapi 4, but they have issues, and there was a hacked version which was buggy which we cannot discuss here for legal reasons.

Wasn’t there a free version of it? I thought that there was?

You will have to pay for the code factory after the trial has finished
After the trial period it will work no more until a licence is purchased

Hi all,

I have installed the code factory eloquence voice on my GPD win 2. I have
2 days left of the trial of eloquence. At the end of it, do I have to buy
the eloquence voices? Or do they revert to a free version of eloquence? I
have eloquence on my other machine but I never paid for that as it shipped
with my laptop when I purchased it. So am not sure about this.
