Re: Why Windows OneCore voices Over eSpeak NG

I use the one core voice and my rate is set at 95 which I fine adequate.

Good response.  I know some blind people listen at rates of speech over three  hundred words per minute.
Personally
  I find 175 to be pretty good for me.
Are the 1 core voices available for win 10 only or can they be used with win 7.?
Thanks,
Monte

Because some people have their speech rates set up to speeds that are incomprehensible to your random listener, but perfectly comprehensible to them, and certain synthesizers do "ultra fast" better than others.  I have yet to see anyone who uses One Core (or other, for that matter) voices at something within normal limits for typical human speech rates say they're either slow or laggy.   If one wants to use ultra fast speech rates, then it narrows one's choice of synthesizers (and, probably, even voices for that synth).
Yes, speech rate can be varied for One Core voices.
