Re: code factory voices addon



The NVDA add-on for the Vocalizer voices and their SAPI5 variants are separate things/products. You can use either one or the other. You don't need to buy both, to be able to use the Vocalizer voices with NVDA. If you buy the NVDA add-on, you can use them only with NVDA. If you buy the SAPI5 variant, you can use them with any program that supports SAPI5, including NVDA, without the need to pay extra to use them with NVDA.

Agreed. However, I think it's excessive to have to purchase both the Vocalizer voices and the NVDA addon just to use those voices with NVDA. Thatt voice venture would set one back by $184. I understand rewarding people's work in creating addons that render previously inaccessible applications accessible. But if NVDA requires an addon to run voices that every other screen reader can run on the SAPI5 Vocalizer license, that's a fundamental design flaw in NVDA.
