Re: SAPI5 crashing NVDA


True, I guess it’s just a question of having confidence or not having confidence in the product. If you never know when it’s going to do this on you, it’s a bit worrying, especially when you boot up to give a class or something.

You probably registered them.  But what I've heard, and it may or may not be true, is that they may need registration again if you don't use them for a certain amount of time, perhaps a month, perhaps more, I don't recall.  Whatever the case, you now know how to get out of the problem if it occurs and you can register the voices again for free.  You may want to ask Code Factory when the voices may need reregistration.  Why are you so quick to give up on something you paid for and want?  Many people have successfully dealt with the problem.

Thanks Tyler, this is really helpful. The thing is, I thought I had registered my coat factory voices. I don’t know why they suddenly forgot this. But I think I’m going to uninstall the whole thing… What a waste of money…
