Re: Why Windows OneCore voices Over eSpeak NG

George McCoy <slr1bpz@...>

Obviously, voices like espeak and elloquence can be cranked up to phenomally fast rates.  But you can speed up onecore voices to a respectable rate by going into settings, time and language speech and advancing the speed slider to 100 and then adjusting NVDA's rate accordingly.  I can get speeds with Microsoft Mark that are roughly equivalent to espeak with rate boost checked and rate set to 40 or so.

Why do some people say the one core voices are slow? Can the speech rate be increased?
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.
