Re: espeak n g no good it sneezes on some words

Well, in the case of verbosity as I traverse the system, I do a lot of
rapid scrolling and pressing of ctrl. I know what my system says where
and am familiar enough with my computer to know where things are without
being told. :)

Reading stories and articles is most of what I do with NVDA. Changing
speeds from super fast to what I consider normal and back would be quite
as jarring as listening to a piece of music at double-speed and then
straight away listening to the same song at normal speed. Whenever I do
that the normal rate sounds too slow...

Some of us can certainly listen to fast rates of speed. I listen to
my reading machine at 500 words per minute and I will also listen to
my nls player at the highest speed. If I listen to slow that would
just put me to sleep.

I have been using screen readers since 95 in windows except for an

I do slow down first thing in the morning, uncheck the rate boost
and set speed to 100 % .

To me nvda set to 30 % sounds like if you set yours to 0 % or slower.

I am just used to it fast.

default rate with espeak. And how can you even tell there's fluttering

I just tested it and I can't make out what's being said at all. If I
didn't know the contents of the dialogue, I'd be lost.

I all ways used the default nvda max english voice, I am
disappointed in the changes made to espeak in nvda I think starting
with nvda 2015 or may be as far back as 2014. Were the changes made
to espeak by nvda devel or the creator of espeak. I would like a
choice in nvda setup to be able to pick witch espeak to install. I
feal the need for speed quite freequently and to have that fluttering
sound in there when the check box for rate boost is checked so I can
get up to a 600 to 800 words per min is disruptive. I am still trying
to get used to it.
